In their first in-depth autobiography, pop sensations Niall, Zayn, Liam, Harry, and Louis tell the story of their lives. From nervously auditioning for The X Factor and meeting one another for the first time, to filming their hit movie This Is Us and releasing their best-selling third album, Midnight Memories, it really has been one incredible journey. For the first time, the boys’ loyal fans will be given an unprecedented insight into all of it, from their humble beginnings and lives before The X Factor, to recording their first single, touring the world, winning awards, breaking records, and much, much more.
What has it been like for them? What did they really think of one another when they first met? What inspires their song-writing? How do they handle life on the road and long breaks away from those they care about and love? And what do they think is next for them as a band who have achieved so much so quickly?
Taking you behind the scenes of the creation of their music, their tours and their incredible friendship in their very own words, One Direction are ready to lay themselves bare in a way we’ve never heard before.
Get ready for the incredible story of a lifetime from an incredible set of lads.

great effort, lovely voices, endearing storyline

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Would definitely recommend this to every fan of One Direction and to everyone who is interested in their story! I'm so pleased with this. All the boys have really soothing voices and they did a good job at not sounding like they're just reading this out loud! I honestly got carried away and found myself giggling and sniffing at some points. I loved how the storyline changes a bit when they're narrating it and they just add a few other parts. I think everyone should listen to and read this book and give One Direction a chance. They'll love it!

What other book might you compare One Direction: Who We Are to, and why?

Wouldn't compare it to a book but I would compare it to their movie, 'This Is Us'. They both include the boys narrating their stories and giving details about their journey from the X Factor days to present! Both are very lovely.

Have you listened to any of One Direction’s other performances? How does this one compare?

I've been to two One Direction concerts and I've been religiously following them since 2010. This is very different to everything else because, even though they've done hundrerds of interviews and show, this is just them, just their voices, no visual. They handled it very well and it's honestly one of my favourite things right now.

This is a bomb ass book that you need to check out

This is the best book on this whole website 100% recommend to everyone. Like mystery? Check out this book to find out what one direction really think of their job. Like drama? Listen to Liam Payne talk about the troubles him and fellow band member louis Tomlinson face. This is a great book for everyone no matter which genre of books you are into this book includes all of them.

Very cute

It was a really cute story and emotional if you've been a fan for a long time. I loved hearing them narrate it.
