We gave it a B

In Freddie & Me, Mike Dawson anoints Freddie Mercury, frontman of Queen, ”a messenger from the gods” — and the spandexed muse stands at the heart of this memoir. In his paean to adolescent angst, Dawson breaks into song in the school cafeteria, rethinks his social life after Mercury’s death, and feuds with his George Michael-loving sister.

For Fans of…
Nick Hornby’s High Fidelity.

Bottom Line
Though undeniably contagious, Dawson’s rawkin’ enthusiasm begins to slow-jam into sentimentality. B
