Side In This Book A Sight Rarelyin this book a sight rarely before I already read Geri Halliwell s If Only and For the Record and Recently Read Victoria Beckham read Victoria Beckham Learning to Fly I have to say I enjoyed Melanie Brown s book the least of the Spice Girls It was overly long spent too much time on her pre Spice years and then was much vague during the Spice years and beyond It was an OK read but I found myself skimming it than reading it especially near the end I find this book to be interestingyes i have also read Vic s and Geri si enjoy Mel s because of the way she write itshe is uite a good writeror try to be one anywayshe is a dramatic person and manages to showcase that in her writing She was a normal personwell we all are aren t weDUH But what made her successful was her diligence hard work and belief in herself She also know her aimsshe portrays herself well hereas careless fun risky outrageous amusing and Challengeri sügavik just a great person to meet in real life and have down to earth conversations with How I Came To Read This Book After reading Geri Halliwell s first autobiography in one day this year I felt like picking up the final Spice biography out there Mel C Emmacan t wait to read yoursThe Plot Mel B s 500 page biography covers her life from babyhood to motherhood and how she went from a girlust interesting in entertaining to part of one of the greatest girl groups of all time The bulk of the book thankfully deals with her life as a Spice Girl with ust the first 150 ish and the last 100 ish pages dealing with the before and after The Good The Bad This book is refreshingly upfront and frank in comparison to other celeb autobiographies I ve read this year I m looking at you Geri It s written in an extremely conversational style as though you re spending an afternoon or 20 as Mel dictates her life to you good bad and in between This is both. In this extraordinary autobiography of Scary Spice Melanie Brown she covers it all the council estate childhood the formation of the Spice Girls the early months being groomed for stardom the subseuent global domination. .
The book s strength Mel B s book was definitely revealing than Geri and Victoria s autobiographies I learned so much about the year between forming the group and becoming famous I really enjoyed reading her diary entries It s crazy how much those girls traveled in October 1997 they were in France Spain France again Turkey for their first live show Singapore India Hong Kong Japan and
England I Can Imagine How Exhausting That Could BecomeI DidI can imagine how exhausting that could becomeI did a few contradictions in the bookfor example Mel B said that She Felt Uncomfortable Meeting Fans felt uncomfortable meeting fans she didn t know what to say to strangers Later she mentions that she is completely comfortable in front of strangers She also said that the 3rd Spice Girl album was unnamed at the time the book was writtenbut later talks about the album being called Forever I may have caught these contradictions because I read the book within a weekHappy to read another Spice book even if it s outdated It was nice to read yet another viewpoint of the Spice Girls phenomenon as I d already read both of Geri s book and Victoria s I was interested in her marriage to Jimmy Gulzar although I felt like some details were left out The book was a little overly long and spent too much time in my opinion on her pre Spice days but overall it was a good read After reading this I have to admit that I m pleasantly surprised at ust how normal the girls behind the Spice Girls really are Sure they became uite famous but when you get right down to it they re Antwerp just normal people who got thrown into that Now I m not saying that there weren t a few times when Iust wanted to roll my eyes at some of the things Melanie talks about in the book but I ust chalk that up to her being a BIT outrageous than me Melaine B has always been my favorite Spice Girl and I was so happy to be able to read about her life The book talks of her early life uite a bit I don t think it focuses on the Spice Girls as much Geri s and Victoria s books do that is okay though I really enjoyed reading about her early life her mom s family sounds a Geri's departure the marriage and divorce to Jimmy Gulzar the birth of Phoenix Chi the solo career and the leap into TV presenting Not bad for the rebellious mixed up girl from Leeds who is still only in her 20s Born .
