The boys talk about the fans,concerts,some One Direction: Where We Are is a book written by the members of the world famous boy-band, One Direction.
The boys talk about the fans,concerts,some of their favorite sites that they have seen and even their relationships. You get to understand how much work that they have put into this band since the very start on The X-Factor UK in One Direction is my favorite musical act, hint reason why I'm writing this, but this book is an auto-biography and its different from the usual fiction type books that you normally read.
This book is defiantly in my top 5 favorite books. Even though I knew basically everything that they said in the book I still feel like I learned more about them.
This book will get you to understand more what it is like for musicians when they are working. The group explained that even though they do the craziest things, they get serious when they have to be and actually put their heart and soul into what they are doing. Sort order. Jan 01, Hailey Hailey in Bookland rated it it was amazing. I listened to the audiobook version of this and it was basically just an automatic 5 stars because c'mon, I got to hear bae Liam whisper sweet nothings autobiographical details in my ear.
Also all my other favourite men. Loved it. View 2 comments. Feb 13, April Aprilius Maximus rated it liked it Shelves: I never, ever thought I'd be a One Direction fan, but my bestie Chelsea who you all should follow because she's amazing got me into them and I just have to say that their music and their videos have really helped me a lot lately.
As most of you know, I'm in the middle of getting treated for severe anxiety and depression and to be honest, the boys just make me feel better.
I just loved reading their individual feelings on everything that's happened to them so far and I have to say that Harry's I never, ever thought I'd be a One Direction fan, but my bestie Chelsea who you all should follow because she's amazing got me into them and I just have to say that their music and their videos have really helped me a lot lately.
I just loved reading their individual feelings on everything that's happened to them so far and I have to say that Harry's section was definitely my favourite not only because he's my favourite band member but also because I feel that his was the most truthful, emotional and influential. People say all this crap about him and who he's dating and whatever, but they fail to mention the huge heart he has and the incredible things he does for people all over the world without even telling his publicists or anything so you know he's just doing it out of the goodness of his heart.
Ed Sheeran said that he spent a couple thousand dollars going around feeding and getting to know homeless people one day, and no one even knows about it. I just love these boys and they have brought me so much joy in the past week that I've become a 1D fangirl and I think they're just great in every single way.
If you think you hate one direction, I definitely recommend getting a closer look into their music and their movie and stuff because you'll probably fall head over heels just like I did. Their movie 'This is Us' is absolutely HILARIOUS and is a fabulous insight into their down to earth personalities dealing with going on tour and also their 'Where We Are Tour Concert' because it is just freaking incredible and some of you may or may not know that they write the majority of their songs.
What talent and what a fantastic book! View all 6 comments. Sep 24, Veronica rated it it was ok. Honestly, I can't believe I actually read this thing. I'm just super 1D af so I guess that's why. But the book was kind of boring, and super repetitive. All the boys talked about the exact same "turning" points in their lives so after you're done with Niall and Liam you've pretty much read the entire thing.
It's kind of obvious that the book wasn't written by them, not really. The excessive talk abo Honestly, I can't believe I actually read this thing. The excessive talk about the X Factor, the shameless plugs of big management names Ooo yea Ben Winston's cool! Also, the fact that there were some pretty constructed phrases that made me kind of uncomfortable sucked.
Like I remember there was this part in Niall's chapter where he talked about being present in social media and how close it made him to the fans, it annoyed me so much. I feel like this was just a stupid way to trick little fans into believing that the boys are in control of all their social media accounts and like yea!!! The amazingly limited vocabulary was also super annoying. The book was full of words and phrases like "it was mad! It quickly became annoying and I felt like I was reading the same thing over and over and over again.
Especially because, like I said before, they talked about the same things in each chapter-- X factor, leaving home, how overwhelmed we all were, MSG, Olympics, Ghana--we're super conscious about our fame and want to give back y'all honestly-- Midnight Memories, how lucky we all are! Stadium tour!
We're all lucky lads! We get sad sometimes but we're all happy! Love One direction! We rock! Zayn's part was super refreshing though. I loved how he talked about his mixed race background and got all deep and smart around the middle with his talk about social media and all. His was the only one that seemed very genuine and stuff. It was an ok book. Kinda felt like I wasted my time, but honestly, I didn't expect any different.
Sorry boys. I never believe you in print. View all 4 comments. Nov 12, Emma Rogers rated it it was amazing. So don't judge me, but whatever. Anyways, this was really interesting to listen to and get their take on things and listening to each one narrate their own chapter felt genuine, like they were telling you these stories and not reading it off a page at you.
I do feel like you get a better grip on who they are personally and what their personalities a So don't judge me, but whatever. I do feel like you get a better grip on who they are personally and what their personalities are like, which is fun. All in all if you like One Direction then you'll enjoy this little book, and you should definitely get to the audiobook version. View all 12 comments.

I listened to the audiobook, so hearing their voices made my heart melt. I regret nothing. Oct 09, Jenn rated it really liked it Recommends it for: Not going to lie, I adore these boys. I can't help it. They are just pure fun and this book was pretty much that.
This autobiography gives each boy a chance to share their story from the beginning leading all the way up to the start of their stadium tour.
While parts were repetitive they all talked about the same moments in their bands history , it was fun to see how each of them viewed what was happening to them. I definitely learned some things about them that I didn't know and truthfull Not going to lie, I adore these boys. I definitely learned some things about them that I didn't know and truthfully, it endeared them to me more.
This book isn't for everyone though. I honestly wouldn't read it unless you were a fan. View 1 comment. Feb 13, Kimberley doruyter rated it it was amazing. Nov 09, Artiom Karsiuk rated it it was ok.
That's not a rhetorical question - I am literally wondering if it is physically possible to compose a piece of more humble literature? I mean, Jesus f'n Christ of Nazareth couldn't write an autobiography at this level of humbleness. He'd try to be casual like " Sure I walk on water and rise from the dead, but it's a privilege to be crucified and have my back turned into minced meat for all you wonderful believers out there " and he'd still be One-upped by One Can you get ANY MORE humble than that?
He'd try to be casual like " Sure I walk on water and rise from the dead, but it's a privilege to be crucified and have my back turned into minced meat for all you wonderful believers out there " and he'd still be One-upped by One Direction. Pun intended. I don't mean it as a knock on them, but at the same time I wasn't overly fond of it either. I love pop music and pop culture as a whole - it fascinates me, but I consider myself more of a rock fan: I just find rock music and rockstars more genuine.
And most rockstars aren't the kind of folk you'd find in a dictionary next to the definition of "humble". So, if a multi-platinum selling artist mentions that he sold "a few records" once - that's kind of cute, but if five multimillionaires write a book after what seems to be an overdose of humble-pie: Still, the book wasn't a hack job, because if you know how to sift through the bullshit luckily, 15 years of being a pro-wrestling fan helped me hone that skill , you can find a lot of real under all the thick lairs of humbleness.
Here's the trick: The parts that precede these cliches, are the things that are actually bothering them. Like sacrificing parts of their personal life, their relationships being on public display or being homesick.
They're still young adults that are trying to cope with a level of stardom that is unprecedented. Because with the ever-growing rates of out interconnectedness via social media, superstars of tomorrow will experience a higher level of celebrity that the superstars of yesterday. Maybe for a shorter time and not as long lasting, but the madness will be above an beyond.
Frank Sintatra didn't know what it was like to be Elvis Presley and Elvis couldn't imagine what it was like to be Michael Jackson. Now, regarding the value of this book in terms of an Autobiography - the problem I had with it was, that even though there were some personal bio parts scattered here and there, basically, their lives are so intertwined that they were retelling the same story at a fraction of a different angle, because they lack a different perspective while traveling together.
And midway through the book you just know the sequence of events: Not one of them missed a single link in this chain. I was almost getting a kick out of reading about MSG and going " Sure enough, the next sentence takes me to Africa.
All in all, the book was nice if even a non-Directioner such as I could enjoy it. It was very light on P. Since I enjoy a couple of their singles every year, I hope that there's no year-old Yoko Ono with a "Band Wrecker" kit waiting for them around the corner. May 14, Kathy rated it really liked it Shelves: Ok, this is definitely not my thing, lol.
I made a deal with my neice She read The Outsiders, which was one of my favorite books when I was younger it still is! I am going to rate this book on what it was trying to do, not on how I feel about the group or music although she made me listen to some, and they are talented kids, I admit, I'm just not a fan. This book tells the story or Ok, this is definitely not my thing, lol.
This book tells the story or the boys' first few years after the X-Factor. The book is broken up into 5 sections, with each boy telling their story and how they felt.
It never felt repetitive, they are all different enough to just round out the full story. The book is filled with alot of pictures of the boys goofing around and performing. All in all, I think the book was entertaining and put together really well. Although it was nice to hear the boys tell their stories from a first-hand perspective, a lot of what was said was just repeated by each five boys. He sounded so bored and monotone and to be honest, I wanted to skip past his section all together because it didn't inspire me to keep listening.
Even the funny bits he didn't even tell with any zest. I understand that he wasn't in a good place hence why he decided to leave the band and that definitely came through in his voice. This was a lovely book.
Mar 06, Caitlin Stamm rated it liked it. This book was disappointing, except for Harry's part. Harry is never a disappointment. Aug 08, Nikki rated it it was amazing. May 12, Lotte rated it really liked it Shelves: Very enjoyable. He has admirable perspective on things. And I like that in a person. He's very aware of his surrounding and very sensitive to it as well.
Not sensitive in a negative way but in a good way. What I really like about Zayn's part was his lo The book jacket was beautiful!!! What I really like about Zayn's part was his love for books and he still talks intelligently as always.
In general, all of them were gutted but very grateful of the things that happened to them. I just wished that the book would be full of stories, though.
Not full of pictures. I think we can all agree that the boys are growing up. Jan 16, Caitlin Stamm added it. Apr 01, Sarah Ryland rated it it was amazing. Gotta love a bit of 1D. Jul 06, Jesi rated it it was amazing. Only God can judge me. Sep 21, Kesh rated it really liked it Shelves: I'd give it a four for the tons of pics.
Harry seems to be a rather deep person, and Niall sounds fun. Aug 31, Maui rated it really liked it. I wished there were more words from this book. Hey, pictures were great though. Jun 24, Tricia. Apr 30, Maggie rated it it was amazing. I definitely do recommend this book to others. As a fan of One Direction, I found it very interesting to see the band's own words on their lives and how they got to be so successful.
I love to read about how happy they are and what they plan on accomplishing. Especially the band's favorite memories. If you like reading success stories or want to learn more about One Direction, you should read Where We Are. Obviously, the book is best suited for fans of the band. I believe the title is very appro I definitely do recommend this book to others.
I believe the title is very appropriate because the third tour the band went on was called "Where We Are", and the book also describes where the boys go, how they feel about all the fame at such a young age, and other things about where they are as a group. I gave the nonfiction book 5 stars because I support the guys in everything they do, and this really is a good book about their journey. I'm proud of how far Harry, Louis, Liam, Niall, and Zayn have come from their auditions on the UK X-Factor to millionaires going on sold out world tours, and continuing even when Zayn left.
Knowing that I've been a minuscule part of their big adventure and reading about what I've supported is great. Ok, ok. I love One Direction. This book is obviously geared towards the younger fans. Very formulaic and not really a genuine recount. I feel that it could have been a lot more personal that it was.
Of course I enjoyed it, but overall, a very mediocre account. Nov 05, Juliet rated it it was amazing. This book is literally perfection and I've read this cover to cover and all the pictures the boys look like god. I would recommend this book to any die hard directiors out there who've read their first book and I think this is a little bit better.
Oct 29, Jessica B rated it it was amazing Shelves: One Direction has come a long way since the X Factor. It is truly amazing. Oct 22, Rachel Holtzclaw rated it really liked it. Nov 20, Pooja Banga rated it liked it. Awwww this is great!!! Big big fan of one direction especially Zayn Malik: Dec 06, Stephanie rated it it was ok Shelves: I had originally given this 3 stars, but as I was looking through my list of read books and saw it, I had to take it down because this book was just bad in so many levels.
Though of course I enjoyed it to some extent because I didn't give it a 1 star rating. I love One Direction, don't get me wrong, but I can't lie to myself and say this was such a good book just because I love them. The way this was structured was in a way that the entries felt forced and controlled. The boys were obviously give I had originally given this 3 stars, but as I was looking through my list of read books and saw it, I had to take it down because this book was just bad in so many levels.
The boys were obviously given some kind of prompt or questions they had to answer. I would have much rather enjoyed reading something where all of their answers didn't coincide so much, though how could they not, they're going through the same things right now. But I would have preferred if they'd just talked about some aspect of what they're going through that they felt interest in or if they'd just talked about some random thing they liked. It would have felt real rather than controlled.
I seriously would have been all about seeing Zayn's whole chapter be about what he's been reading now that he's getting back to it. Which reminds me, of all the chapters, Zayn's was the one that felt the most real. The other four, especially Harry's and Liam's I believe, felt the most distanced of them all in the sense that it just really felt like they hadn't written it.
Whether or not they did I don't know, but what I do know is that it brought down the quality of those chapters. The pictures themselves were a let down. Why is it that One Direction always use older pictures for their merchandise? I will never understand this. We hardly ever get anything updated picture wise and it made reading this all the more frustrating because a lot of the images were from much earlier in their careers.
Not from even early before the book was published. Overall it was a total let down. And I of course did not download, and will not download, their most recent book.
I am done with reading about them through these books. I'm better off watching interviews and listening to their music. Which by the way, how amazing was 'Four'???
I honestly think it's their best album thus far. Mundie Kids Review: A must have for fans of One Direction. What's not to love about it? If you're a fan of the band, you'll want to get this book.

Whether you like Harry, Liam, Niall, Louis or Zayn, this book is one 1D fans will enjoy reading through and looking at. It doesn't matter if your child is a teen fan, tween fan or a kid fan, this book is perfect for fans of all ages. No one will judge you if you're an adult fan either. No matter your age, fans of the band will love feeling like they're getting a look backstage and into the life of their favorite band.
You can never go wrong with downloading a One Direction Book.
