God, I'm practically in love with Niall Horan, but these five boys are truly amazing. And what I love about them (besides their super sexiness and ubertalent) is that they're not these cookie-cutter, picture perfect niceboys. They are cheeky, hilarious, and their flaws make them perfect in my heart and the hearts of millions of "Directioners", as we call ourselves. From their rise to fame and even through the girlfriends and ex-girlfriends (that we say we love but secretly want to be so, so bad =P), we are true fans, and in years to come when they fall off the block just like any boy band does, we'll annoy our kids like our.parents annoyed us with New Kids on the Block or whatever they listened, too. Directioners are the real, mega fans. There are many people out there who throw the title around, but they just thinj the guys are hot. They don't.know their story, our inside jokes (Carrots, simple, but effective, No! Jimmy protested.) But directioners do! These guys deserve the best, because they are the best!!

Although I wish the book was a bit longer and had more detailed stories, I loved reading a short book about a great band! It is really interesting to hear each boys voice in the writing! TIP: if you only have a nook simple touch, you may want the real book for colored pictures* I LOVE NIALL!!!!

I love the boys and anyone who thinks theyre untalented gay or manufactered should read this book. Theyre just normal dudes who got an opportunity of a lifetime. Theyve gotten so big in such a small amount of time its impossible for them to have changed. They got my attention because they were cute but they kept it because they really are an amazing band

This book tells the very normal and average life of the One Direction members. The book goes person by person, so we really get to see each members life, up close and personal. I will not give any spoilers, so we will stop here. This is a really interesting, and exciting book about One Direction members Harry, Liam, Niall, Zayn, and Louis. Really is a good read.

What makes me the fact that some of the people on here cant spell louis or zayns name correctly. Does anyone agree? I love all of one direction they are the sweetest!!! This is what happened at school last year: A group of girls were singing WMYB. Me: you like one direction? Them: we lovvvvveee them!!!! Me: really? Name three other songs. Them: uhhhmmm..... Me: YOU ARE NOT DIRECTIONERS!!!!! them: whats a directioner? Me: GET OUT OF MY KITCHEN!!!!!! (Anyone know that? Haha) Them: we're not in a kitchen.... Me: oh my nandos!!!!! Then i walked away absolutley ANGRY

Hey this is a directioner. Cut it out. I read endless comments about how one direction is ugly and that they are gay. If u want to hate on them hate somewhere else. One direction is a great band. Also the one that said One Direcion should go die u in a hole. What was that?! What have the boys have the boys done to u? u never have to read anything about them. I suggest taking your hte somewhere else because us directioners will not take this kindly at all. Oh by the way shoutout to true directioners keep on keeping on. But join my fight against directionhaters.

One Direction is one of the hottest boy bands ever! I'm completely in love with Niall though. I'm not saying that I don't like the others,I love them! I have a thing for Niall. I just recently found out about this freakishly hot boy band everyone was talking about a couple months ago. So I was dating this guy named Judah and I swear he looks almost EXACTLY like Niall! I loved Judah,I reeally did, but things didn't work out so I broke us up... Judah was a really nice guy with a good personality and in everyway,he reminded me of Niall. You know, I hate it when people criticize One Direction, and say that they're gay. Sure, they may have shared a couple of bromance kisses, but it really doesn't mean anything. So far, Judah is the onlu guy that I know who hasn't said anything bad about One Direction. Anyways, I just wanted to let yiu know this story. One Direction and Niall Horan most likely wont read this, but I LOVE them!! Hope to meet you guys in the 2013 tour!!!!!!!

Ok,first of all, one direction is amazin, and if u think not, then dnt bother us with your insults.if u REALLY dont like one direction then dont come to these websites,honestly Who said they were yours to judge?they have probably acomplished way more than you and if ur makin those kinds of comments then are better people than you. Oh,and that girl who thout that the harry styles person was poser,stop ratin urself above every other onedirectioner,chances are, if u do that, your lower than everyone else. Thats right,i went their, because onedirection is amazing.and these kind of places hav become battlegroumds 4 haters and one directioners!!!! Again,if u really dont like them then dont go to every website u can about them and post wierd stuff.we rreaaasaally dnt wanna see u ther. U people are mostly just jelous guys, who cant pick up a single girl,and now i can see why Snap

Love, love love 1D! ¿&hearts;&hearts;&hearts;&hearts;&hearts; They're just so fantastic, but I love em for who they are, like, I'm a directioner not a directionator. Ugh, hate directionators! They don't see the actual boys, I mean they seem so sweet, and funny nice and caring! And what I love about them (besides their super sexiness and ubertalent) is that they're not these cookie-cutter, picture perfect niceboys. They are cheeky, hilarious, and their flaws make them perfect in my heart and the hearts of millions of &quot;Directioners&quot;, as we call ourselves. From their rise to fame and even through the girlfriends and ex-girlfriends (that we say we love but secretly want to be so, so bad =P), we are true fans, and in years to come when they fall off the block just like any boy band does, we'll annoy our kids like our.parents annoyed us with New Kids on the Block or whatever they listened, too. (Sorry for copy and pasting, she just stole the words right out of my mouth!) ¿
