I was mildly disappointed by this book, which is thin on the ground in parts (particularly the era covering Sadie's marriage to Jude Law). Even allowing for the well-known court injunction, it does seem we've been short-changed more than a little in terms of her life during that period. Also, Sadie's recollections of her early childhood seem somewhat romanticised - her father is painted very much as the tormented artist, rather than the violent drunk that he appears to the reader. In fact, the whole of Sadie's childhood is far from the care-free bohemian existence I had imagined from interviews and articles - condemned flats, real poverty and serious respiratory illness figure much larger than the occasional trip to Marrakech.

What can't fail to grip you though, is the proliferation of celebrities at every turn. David Bailey taking Sadie's photograph as she played in the street as a child, the Beatles commissioning furniture from her father, even the young Sam Mendes and David Milliband playing kiss-chase with the girls in her primary school class.

Not tremendously well written and with gaping holes in the known plot - yet also strangely un-putdownable.

I did enjoy reading this book - but glad i didnt pay more than a few pounds to do so!!
Whilst her early years are quite interesting and many years detailed, the later years (which we all know her for) were basic, skimmed over and parts missing! I understand why she didnt want to "dwell or write about" certain things (what happened at the childrens birthday party for example) but dont write a book if you dont want to tell the whole story. Makes for a frustrated and disapointed reader!!! I KNOW for legal reasons not a lot could be said but if the truth was fabricated by the press well this is the time to clear it up and actually TELL the truth - that is if the truth is stories were fabricated - makes you wonder if they were really true! (probably) If this was my life and one of the most talked about significant events had been potrayed as something completly different - id want to set the record straight!!
felt as if it was more about her father and the book a tribute to him.
PEARL LOWE's book give much more detail and probably true-er account of the primrose hill set!! Read that book!!

Sadie Frost is, or was, a tabloid regular thanks to her membership of the privileged Primrose Hillbillies set and marriages to Gary Kemp and Jude Law. Now she puts her side of the story or at least as much as Jude Law's lawyers will let her.

M'learned friends certainly had their blue pencil out before this book hit the printers. Miss Frost explains why her marriage to Gary Kemp broke up (he was too earnest and intellectual - yes, that surprised me as well. They are not the sort of adjectives you normally associate with pop stars) but there is nary a mention of why the one to Mr Law failed, certainly no mentions of infidelities or nannies. One page they are together and then they split. Nor is there any explanation (for "legal and privacy" reasons) about what really happened at that infamous children's party in Soho (p219) that made headlines a few years back.

Miss Frost does talk about her own drug taking (pp118, 128, 161, passim); her insecurity and her dysfunctional relationship with her father (passim) - could they be related?; her severe post-natal depression that had her sectioned while in America (pp227-228); how when she worked for Francis Ford Coppola the hairdresser hired for the film was not interested in the hair on her head (surely, it's bush not tush?) (pp185-186) and her obvious love for her children (passim).

Perhaps we have no right to know certain aspects of someone's life but then if you want to keep your life private, don't write an autobiography.

Whilst the book was enjoyable and I completed within three days, I was rather hoping to read more about her so called partying days, rock and roll lifestyle, I felt the book was more a tribute to her father than anything else, and that regardless of celebrity status it seemed quite dull.

By Mrs. K. A. Wheatley TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 30 Oct. 2011
Format: Hardcover
Sadie Frost is most well known for her celebrity marriages and famous friends and there will be those who read this book hoping to find out more about the people she consorts with than herself. If you are one of these people you will find the book extremely dull. If you are genuinely interested in what makes Sadie tick then you will be fascinated. Sadie had an incredibly unorthodox childhood and upbringing and the rootlessness and disturbances, both emotional and physical, from her early life, certainly do seem to play out in her later, adult life and put a lot of her behaviours in context. She makes clear that at times she is not allowed, for legal reasons, to write what she would wish to, and this seems a shame, not for the more gossip hungry amongst us, but because the exercise of writing the book seems to be an almost cathartic process for Sadie herself. It was interesting to read about her life. I cannot say her prose style appeals to me particularly, but I did enjoy the book and find it an easy and compelling read.
