    Description

    Instant number one New York Times best seller

    Now updated with a new chapter

    In his first and only official autobiography, music icon Elton John reveals the truth about his extraordinary life, from his roller-coaster lifestyle as shown in the film Rocketman, to becoming a living legend. 

    Christened Reginald Dwight, he was a shy boy with Buddy Holly glasses who grew up in the London suburb of Pinner and dreamed of becoming a pop star. By the age of 23, he was performing his first gig in America, facing an astonished audience in his bright yellow dungarees, a star-spangled T-shirt, and boots with wings. Elton John had arrived and the music world would never be the same again. 

    His life has been full of drama, from the early rejection of his work with song-writing partner Bernie Taupin to spinning out of control as a chart-topping superstar; from half-heartedly trying to drown himself in his LA swimming pool to disco-dancing with Princess Diana and Queen Elizabeth; from friendships with John Lennon, Freddie Mercury, and George Michael, to setting up his AIDS Foundation to conquering Broadway with Aida, The Lion King, and Billy Elliot the Musical. All the while, Elton was hiding a drug addiction that would grip him for more than a decade. 

    In Me, Elton also writes powerfully about getting clean and changing his life, about finding love with David Furnish and becoming a father. In a voice that is warm, humble, and open, this is Elton on his music and his relationships, his passions and his mistakes. This is a story that will stay with you by a living legend.

    Honest and endearing

    To cover Elton John’s history it would take more than 100.000 pages.
    But this autobiography tells in such a truthful way the real story of one of the most important icons of Pop Music.
    And the narration is outstanding
    I felt like we were having a very long chat while sipping tea in a cold afternoon.

    A Book as Extraordinary as Elton

    This book is an amazing look at one of the world’s most amazing people. I wish it had been read by Elton but Taron Egerton is the next best thing. Between the movie Rocketman and this autobiography I now understand this fabulous man whom I have loved for 45 years so much better than ever before. Elton helped me get into recovery 22 years ago, though he doesn’t know it. The recovery parts of the book and the movie touched me to my heart and soul. Other than my wonderful wife and my amazing sponsor of 22 years, John, no one has given me more or meant more to me than this chap I’ve never met (though I still dream of doing so). I love you Sir Elton Hercules John Reggie Kenneth Dwight, and I always will.

    Thoroughly engaging!

    I have loved Elton John's music since I was a 7th grader (many, many moons ago). This may not be an accurate review, as I have only started chapter two, but what I've heard so far has been delightful and poignant. Unfortunately, there are also horror tales of the abuse Elton suffered as a child. If I had any criticism, it's that Elton only read the dedication and forward - I was really looking forward to hearing his voice. But I must say, this narrator is killin' it! And Elton is a wonderful storyteller.

    Amazing Story, paired with an Incredible Narrator

    I LOVE this book. The story itself is incredible and is so perfectly Elton. The story structure and self deprecating humor is so authentic that even though it’s not Elton reading it, it sounds just like he’s telling the story to an old friend.

    The openness and honesty Elton gives his story is so refreshing for a celebrity biography. He doesn’t hide his “dark” secrets or the unpleasant choices he made. He lays it all out in a frank and beautiful way.

    The narrating is perfect, and I really enjoy all the different accents he does to fit each person. Having Taron Egerton narrate it was a stroke of genius. You can tell he really knows Elton, and the way Elton would speak.

    This audiobook is the perfect marriage between story and narration. It’s a MUST listen to for any Elton John Fan.

    Elton - Friend for life

    As you listen to Elton John tell his own story (or at least Taron Egerton voicing for Elton), you feel like he is relating his story just for you. It is as if the two of you are sitting together, and he is reminiscing on his life. And you are just rapt at attention, waiting for the next story, the next juicy tidbit. When it is over, I felt like I made a friend for life. I always loved his music; now I love him.

    Fantastic!!!!!!

    I’ve always been a MUSIC fan. I love any and all books on the artists. I will say this is ABSOLUTELY the BEST ever. Elton takes you through his entire life. The ups the downs. This book made me realize,Elton, is by far the most down to earth contemporary artist in the world. I feel as if I showed up on his doorstep, he would ask you in for tea all the while sitting on his children. Such a wonderful read by Taron. Kudos to all involved. I will listen again. And I’m actually going to buy the hardback for my library. Such a great read....don’t pass this one up!
    Jim....front The Beautiful Cascade Mountains
    Luv you Elton

    Terrible narrator!!

    I had to return this book after two chapters. I couldn’t stand listening to the narrator. He just tried too hard to push the words out of his mouth. Wayyyyy too much animation to the point of distraction. I am a huge Elton John fan and was looking forward to this book but unfortunately, great story , terrible narrator.

    Truly love Elton's telling of his life

    This book is beautifully written and truly honest. Elton relives his greatest, saddest, and most vulnerable moments. He admits to his faults and some of his outrageous actions and yet shows how all those actions has made him who he is today in such an a lovely and inspiring way. The narrator Taron did a beautiful job conveying Elton’s spirit and English wit. I truly recommend this book to anyone.

    Not What I Wanted

    If you want a full description of his sex life and drug and alcohol addictions, then this book is for you. If you want his story about his music, don't bother.

    Witzig und einfach rund

    Dieses Hörbuch (Me von Elton John) hat wirklich Spaß gemacht! Beide Sprecher, Elton John selbst und Taron Egerton, waren super. Das Buch war für mich wie eine Reise durch ein ganzes, sehr außergewöhnliches Leben. Mit viel Lebensweisheit und Humor gespickt, hatte ich das Gefühl, dass ich auch für mein eigenes Leben so einiges mitnehmen kann.
    Empfehlenswert!

    Inspiring, funny and heart warming

    I loved the audio book! Both readers have done a brilliant job.
    Besides that the live story of Elton John is inspiring, told in a funny way and it touched my heart. Even though I am a straight women I could find many situations where I felt close to the little boy who didn’t feel loved and know who he was.

    Excellent biography - Elton John, warts and all

    Elton John‘s biography is a rarity. It provides an unflinching, critical and quite entertaining glimpse into the singer’s life. His love-free childhood, his passion for music, his career which owed a lot to luck and lots of work and Elton‘s many addictions, his recovery, his new life and his loves. A wonderful book full of truths, insight and humor. Taron Egerton is a Great reader. A great treat. Highly recommended.

    He'a a Rocketman!

    Die Geschichte einer lebenden Legende, tiefgründig, emotional und voller Humor. Nicht nur was für Fans!

    Eine Lebensgeschichte, die mich nicht loagelassen hat. So viele Aspekte werden beleuchtet, die guten ebenso sehr wie die schlechten. Mit viel Liebe und Humor tasten wir uns an die Abgründe eines einfachen, verletzten Menschen und steigen mit einem Weltstar auf die Bühne, um das Leben im Luxus zu genießen.

    Grandios gelesen von Taron Egerton, vor allem für Freunde des Films. Jederzeit überzeugend und voller Gefühl. Man vergisst zwischendurch, dass hier ein Buch gelesen wird und hat das Gefühl einem Freund dabei zu lauschen von seinem Leben zu berichten.

    Habe das Hörbuch gehört und das Buch auf deutsch gelesen. Und werde es wieder tun.

    It should be shortened by 1/3

    I get it that in Elton John's mind all the history is important but a lot of those long ago details are really not very interesting to the reader at all so I wish someone had had the guts to edit the book a lot more. With a lot of skipping I made it to the more interesting stories. I also wished the narrator would not have mispronounced the name "Gianni" more than 50 times throughout the audio book - other than that he did a pretty good job even though one always hopes the famous person reads their autobiography themselves.
