Product Description

Review

"'Witty and extrovert, ruthlessly ambitious and unforgiving, Street-Porter would, on the evidence of this book, make a horrible enemy but a great friend' - INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY"

Product Description

Friends. Everyone needs them. Especially when relations between you and your family are less than perfect. And for the talented and ambitious Janet Street-Porter, her friends became her family. is the story of these vibrant characters – some famous, some infamous, all extraordinary – and their often volatile relationships with her. Above all, it is a portrait of an exciting and creative era, by someone who lived it to the full.

2.0 out of 5 stars Boring 21 May 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Read this more out of curiosity about the character of JSP to see if there was more to her than her public persona - there isn't! Only finished the book through a determination never to give up on a book I start but it was a chore. A boring name-dropping saga of a ruthless shallow person.

Another of those 'personalites' who one wonders why or how they ever became famous!!

2.0 out of 5 stars Slightly better than the first 8 Jun 2007
By ReviewBlog51 TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
After reading Janet Street Porter's first book 'Baggage', I thought I must be looking for trouble when I picked up her second memoir 'Fall Out'. Whilst it was better than the first, it is still pretty bad.

It documents a decade in Janet's life, set in London during the 1960s and she is at the start of her career. In her own words she was at 'the centre of the arts and music scene in London night after night'. Janet meets lots of famous people, has lots of affairs, makes a lot of enemies, and makes of a lot of friends - which, being the "ruthless" and "selfish" person she confesses to being in the book's introduction, drops them as soon as they have served their purpose.

Whilst there are some interesting stories as she name drops (John Lennon attended her wedding party, she beat Rod Stewart at snooker and drank with Janis Joplin), it's still a pretty boring book. Written by Janet and will probably be read by Janet. 'Fall Out' is nevertheless a better read than her first, in which she came across as a freakishly bitter person.

For the record, I do like Janet, I think she is very entertaining on television, and I always enjoy reading her opinions in her column.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great read!! 11 July 2010
Format:Hardcover
This is a great read for anyone who knows the sixties and around. J S-P writes well - there is a bit of what might appear to be name-dropping, but that is not the way it is, simply the way it was! She has had a remarkable life - buy the other auto-biog of hers as well!!

1.0 out of 5 stars Totally Boring! 21 Jan 2007
Format:Hardcover
I have never read a more BORING autobiography in all my life! I like Janet Street Porter and thought her book would be hilarious but it was very stern and she talked mostly about USA Government! Totally boring! It would be better if it was based on her life today without the Government and all her political issues! A big fat zero for a rating I'm afraid.

1.0 out of 5 stars What's with the double line spacing?! 2 Oct 2007
Format:Hardcover
I agree with L. Lockhart. I was really looking forward to reading this book but I haven't managed to get more than a couple of chapters in.

Also, the double line spacing of the text is VERY annoying. The book would be half the size if it had standard text like every other book!

Very disappointing
