Novel highly inspired by Prince - in German - das schönste Mädchen der Welt

To all German orgers, I can highly recommend the book"Das schönste Mädchen der Welt". The book is fictional, a novel, but its main characters are all huge Prince fans and there is a lot of nice descriptions how Prince's music, attitude and his live concerts made such a strong impression on us... I surely was touched and many scenes reminded me about my youth as a Prince fanatic, trying to see him live wherever possible...

And besides that, the book is nicely written overall, a good read...

Yes, a movie with the same title which premiered last week. However, that's a different one and has nothing to do with Prince. It's just the title wink

The book which Krid mentions was written by an author who was a huge fan and he wrote the book to honor Prince and give the fans something to reminisce with him. He said he actually had already retired as a writer but when Prince died he felt he wanted to write this for all the fans over here.

Okay, thanks for the heads up smile
