At times the writing can be read like Deborah is trying to fit everything she can into one page. It's a good read written be someone that was actually more well-connected to the band. I picked up the book after seeing 'Control' It was a little more friendlier in the attempt at showing the portrait of a troubled soul. In this Ian comes off as a complete twit don't know if it was my feminism that kicked in at some parts or the intolerability I have of possessive men, but I had to distance myself for some of the actions and remind myself to read this book objectively. I had to read it as a fan of Joy Division and Ian's imagery as a writer. It does makes you wonder what exactly would have become of Ian Curtis now (I believe him and Morrissey most likely would have made an album together). How he would handled the fame of today and the social media surrounding it. We would hope to believe, he would have still excelled at being a sensitive soul who made insanely beautiful music.
