Marvin Gaye, My Brother (Book) Reviews
I rate Frankie Gaye's book 4 stars (5 if you're a Marvin fan) for one reason - it is readable and provides a different perspective. Simply written and clear, the book doesn't try to pretend to analyze Marvin's life or music.
Thank you to the late Frankie Gaye for sharing the life of his amazing and beautifully gifted brother. This book is amazing, has you desperately eager to read more as you go and although is one of the most wonderful reads, is the saddest for anyone who loves Marvin Gaye. So very tragic, yet we can smile that Marvin just being Marvin touched so many and thanks to his amazing brother Frankie's book, we all can share in the true knowledge of one of the most intriguing men that blessed this world with his beautiful voice. RIP beautiful Marvin and Frankie!
The book was received before time and was in good condition as stated. I cannot wait to indulge in this story and write a review about it. Marvin Gaye's life was filled with happiness, success, depression, wealth and tragedy. If only he was still here, he would have turned music on it's ear. There will never be another Marvin Gaye
Big Marvin Gaye fan. Read every book about the man I could find. Fabulous singer, song writer, one of the best whose work has stood the test of time. His work will still be relevant years from now. Enjoyed the book especially by a sibling who grew up with Marvin and had knowledge and information on the man and the family dynamics that shaped him.
I enjoyed reading this book . . . I loved that it was from his brother's account of his life. He told us about the letters Marvin wrote to him during his road tours.
BOOK WAS WATER DAMMAGED AS IN WARPED.
Very good book. Highly recommended. Gets a little wordy & veer off from Marvin a few times but still a great read
I enjoyed this book. Sad, the author died before it was published. Marvin was indeed a troubled man.
