Summary

The story of the legendary musician’s incredible last year.

John Lennon 1980 traces the powerful, life-affirming story of the former Beatle’s remarkable comeback after five years of self-imposed retirement. Lennon’s final pivotal year would climax in several moments of creative triumph as he rediscovered his artistic self in dramatic fashion. With the bravura release of the Double Fantasy album with wife, Yoko Ono, he was poised and ready for an even brighter future only to be wrenched from the world by an assassin’s bullets. John Lennon 1980 isn’t about how the gifted songwriter died, but rather, about how he lived.

In-Depth and Entertaining

I found this book to be well written and very entertaining. It does a great job telling the story of John Lennon's final year as well as filling in the backstory of the previous decade that led up to some of the events in his life in 1980. I have always seen the photos of the Lennon's in Bermuda, in the Dakota and Central Park, or recording their final album, but I never really knew the stories around them. This book goes into great depth and brings the stories surrounding these events, as well as many others, into light. The narration is excellent as well.
