Book Review: “Julia: The Story of Julia Lennon” by Kevin Roach

Funny how time flies when you’re writing a Beatles review blog! I had completely forgotten about buying the ebook – Julia – The Story Of Julia Lennon by Kevin Roach. In fact, I bought it two days after it was released on November 12, 2014. Two years is too long for this book to have gone unread and I needed something to read for this week’s review.

So, needless to say, this book can be read in a couple hours time. In fact, it’s just the facts. Author Kevin Roach who is from Liverpool, did his homework and found every shred of paper that shows the who, what, when and where’s of Julia Stanley Lennon and the rest of the Stanley family.

Mr. Roach includes images of the birth records, death records, etc., along with pictures of the houses and streets that represent the lives of Julia’s parents and siblings while living in Liverpool. Unfortunately, there are just some facts he didn’t get right and along with the obvious typos, it makes this book a bit wishy washy to read.  And even with the paperwork and pictures, it’ll still leave the reader wondering…Why? But for a $7 ebook, I guess I got what I paid for. And for that reason…

I rate this book, 2 out of 4 Beetles!





Kevin Roach has written several other books that all seem to be out of print, except for a couple issues of a magazine from 2014. You can check out the rest of his works on his Amazon page.
