"Cliff Richard can’t escape the pain in this breezy account of his long career"

Fans will want this book on their Christmas lists, but for more dispassionate readers The Dreamer can almost feel like speculative fiction, a portal into a world where the Beatles never happened; acid and the Maharishi replaced by tennis and Gloria Hunniford. It’s fascinating in a way, but, like that painting of Richard and Presley together at last, not the best way to rewrite rock’n’roll history.
