I'm a Clapton fan and I knew he was a miserable wreck in the 80's (especially). However I agree with the majority of your opinions about the book. I re-read it about a month ago and it comes across as quite flat.

Pattie seems to have an amazing memory of what she wore (including the designer) what she drank and what she ate in amazing detail (even though she had a diary, surely no one would go to that much of an extent to document every. single. thing they wore/consumed). It also is a kind of name-dropper book for everyone she met and all the parties that she went to, (I don't care Pattie and honestly I don't think anyone else does either). 

The anecdotes (particularly about her relationship with George, which is what we are all really reading for) are mainly uneventful. I'm not telling her to tell us a load of private things but just little stories or jokes that she and George shared would have boosted the book's rating (for me anyways). She does get kudos though for talking about George's almost 'hermit-like' ways when he deeply got into chanting et all and his general moodiness. George is too positively portrayed I believe, like all of us-he could be a real jerk. 

I do believe it could have been written better, the book jumps back and forth from the present to the past to 3 years after the event the event she was currently writing about a-hard-days-night-paul-10 She did (and does) have a fascinating life and I really wished she had gone into more depth with some events (her modelling days, Rishikesh etc.) 

Overall apple01apple01apple01/5
