I LOVED Amy Winehouse' music, and was incredibly saddened when she passed away. I went to her Camden home to pay my respects with all the other public mourners, so to get an insight into how the Mitch Winehouse lived daily with the ups and downs of an addict is something I am really grateful for. The book is heartfelt, honest but overall incredibly sad. Whilst I knew the outcome the impending doom was obvious from the first few pages, and I am not sure there was ever another outcome for Amy.

I always thought the Fielder-Civils were just out for what they could get, and whilst this is Mitch's side, it rings true and honest, and cements my personal view.

One point, is that Mitch refers to the 'good' concerts in Hammersmith in November 2007. Unless there were several dates, I was at that concert and it was shambolic. She was over an hour late on, not 30 minutes, she sang out of time, out of tune and was all over the place. I was so disappointed, and even more so now as I never got to see an idol perform to her best.

This is sad story which we know did not have a happy ending. It is written from the perspective of Amy Winehouse's father and his heartbreak in watching his daughter struggle with drugs. You do feel for him and it is obvious from the book that he loved his daughter very much. I did shed a few tears. However, if you are looking to read a book about the secret thoughts of Amy Winehouse this will not be the book for you. You would get more of her perspectives and feelings by listening and reading the lyrics of her songs. This book is the father's take on her life. Nevertheless, it is a good read and I felt a sense of loss and sadness after I finished the last page.

I felt this book was written more as a therapeutic release for her Father Mitch than for his daughter, or indeed putting the record straight, which isn't a bad thing.

I must thank Mitch for allowing us an insight to Amy that we never would have seen. I can see she was a spoilt 'Daddies" girl, and as hard as her Father tried to steer her in the right course of her life, she never made it.

Amy is one of the tragic celebrity stars that are lost to this world too early, ones that can give so much, but never make it, but leave us so much.

Many similar cases have been written about, this one unique of course to Mitch as its his daughter. I remember reading another story some time back like this.

Apart from Amy's struggles within herself, she has left a legacy of her superb music, each one with lyrics to really listen to and adhere.

Thank you to HarperCollins UK, Nonfiction/Collins vi Net Galley for allowing me to read and have a chance to review this book.

I do have to say, that yes, in some places the book is repetitive, but this just enhances the books authenticity more I feel.

No one can sit on judgement of another family, unless they have a perfect family themselves.

Great singer and so wanted to dwelve into Amy's life,great read, Mitch told it honestly about himself and took you through the ups and downs of being a dad and how he helped Amy .but it made me more aware of Amy's fits and how sad her life ended ,she had so much more to give,she had a loving dad who was there for Amy, couldn't put kindle down. A must for fans to read

I have read a couple of books on Amy Winehouse but it's so nice to read an accurate account of her life and struggles, i can only imagine what Mitch is going through and my heart and thoughts go out to him and his family. It was a great book and beautifully written, i have been a fan of both Amy and her music for a long time, i just want to say to Mitch that it hurt her fans too seeing her like that, but i knew she always had support and Mitch did everything he possibly could have. I would recommend this book to anyone, from all walks of life, i laughed, i cried whilst reading this book. Don't worry Mitch, Amy will NEVER ever be forgotten, and keep up the good work, somewhere Amy is watching you and she's with you all the time in heart and spirit. I would give this book 10 stars if i could, an excellent read.
