Product description

Prepare to meet the real McFly. In 2003, Tom Fletcher, Danny Jones, Harry Judd and Dougie Poynter came together and formed what would become one of the most popular and successful bands in the UK. Just teenagers at the time, they were catapulted into the limelight and had to adapt quickly to their new-found fame - and everything that came with it. Now, at last, they have decided to tell their story, in full and revealing detail. Speaking with candour and their trademark humour, Tom, Danny, Harry and Dougie share both the stories of their own lives and that of McFly. They give their personal insights into their contrasting childhoods, the individual paths that led them to the band, the struggles they have each overcome, their love lives and, of course, their music. Packed with previously untold stories, a lot of laughter and the occasional tear, `Unsaid Things` offers a privileged look into the lives of four guys who started out as bandmates and became best friends. Their unique camaraderie radiates from every page and by the end of the book, you'll know them almost as well as they know each other .

Can't I rate it more than 5? No? Oh well, 5 will have to do.

My review:
Unsaid Things is McFly's autobiography. If you don't know who McFly are, let me tell you a bit about them. McFly are a pop/rock band from England and they have been going since 2004. So many bands release books when they're barely famous (One Direction, anyone?) but McFly waited until they had plenty of experience and material to write a book. I have been a fan of the band since I was eleven and as a nineteen, almost twenty year old, I am still a huge fan. I have been lucky enough to see McFly live five times and I met the whole band back in 2011. It was honestly one of the best days of my life. So you can imagine how excited I was for this book.

Unsaid Things starts off with a prologue which is a little story of the guys in a hotel. It was an interesting beginning and very funny. The book is then spread out into thirteen chapters, each chapter concentrating on an important part of their career. From each member's childhood to the recent weddings of Tom Fletcher and Harry Judd, we get an insight into the band we all know and love.

My favourite chapter was the story surrounding Dougie Poynter going into rehab. At the time there were many rumors going around. The main one was that he was heart-broken after his breakup from Frankie Stanford. I was one of those fans who believed this story, but it was far from the truth. Dougie spilled his heart out and I shed a lot of tears. I could imagine how hard it was to tell us what really happened to him.

Until now, McFly had kept a lot of their life secret. In Unsaid Things, you discover so much about the band that you never knew before. If you think you know McFly, think again.
