Because Shut Up. Neil Gaiman and Duran Duran? Two great tastes that taste great together. I hope. If I can ever find the book...
Proud to say that I own a copy of this band biography that not only shows the promise of the band as more than a flash I'm the pan but also shows the burgeoning genius of Neil Gaiman.
eponymous sentence:p9: To understand Duran Duran one must understand the scenes and the pendulum swings in the Britain from which they emerged.This book came in at a disadvantage from all angles, but the main thing is that I am not at all familiar with the band in question--apparently they were already at the height of their careers by the time I was born. The obsessive-compulsive in me made me slug through it anyway.I think the section Boys On Film (about the band's music videos) was a bit off
Neil Gaiman's first book. Lots of pictures, not much to it, and the subject is a band I was never really fond about
I picked this up as part of a HumbleBundle bundle. It was a detailed perspective on Duran Duran, just not terribly intresting for me.
I...it's a Duran Duran biography written by Neil Gaiman. His writing is great, I'm not so much a fan of the band, I read this for a Neil Gaiman book club that I'm a part of, don't think I would've read it otherwise. Very interesting to see a slightly journalistic side of Gaiman, and his personal style definitely shows.
It's, um, just a biography of Duran Duran as written by Neil Gaiman. It's the first book he ever wrote. I'm not a particular fan of the band, but it is well written, and you can see the Gaiman-esque writing come through at parts. Otherwise, it's just a straightforward bio of the band.
Wish I hadn't sold this one last year - always loved it.
Short and informative.
