Product Description

Review

Ghosted by Emma Donnan, currently assistant editor at Star magazine, it s the memoir of a quasi-fictional construct that is itself ghosted by Sam (or Sam )...Although Sam and her peers, living life the Essex way, are exploited by the media within which they appear to flourish, they are far too savvy to be pitied as calves for the slaughter --Literary Review

Product Description

Welcome to the glam and fab world of Sam Faiers - star of the hit TV programme The Only Way is Essex. Read on to find out what it takes to be a REAL Essex Girl. The Oxford Dictionary definition of an 'Essex Girl': A brash, materialistic young woman of a type supposedly found in Essex or surrounding areas in the south-east of England. The Sam Faiers definition of an 'Essex Girl': A stylish, hard-working, big-hearted and family-minded young woman found in Brentwood or nearby areas (and Marbs). At the start of 2010 Sam Faiers was a normal 19-year-old girl from Brentwood: she was working in a local bank, plotting a glamour modelling career and planning what outfit to wear to Sugar Hut. Then the first episode of TOWIE aired, and suddenly Sam was catapulted into a world of champagne cocktails, TV studios, nightclubs and paparazzi. In Living Life the Essex Way, Sam lifts the lid on her childhood, her rise to fame and her beauty regime, as well as her dating rules, dealing with instant fame, the men in her life and what really goes on behind the scenes on the hit ITV2 show.

1.0 out of 5 stars Me, me, me, me, me!! 24 Feb 2013
Format:Paperback
OMG! Dreadful! Dull, boring and not even worh the £1 I paid in the charity shop for it other than it was for a good cause! Don't waste your time or money. She has nothing good to say about anyone! Just bitches about them and says how great she is! This book does her no favours whatsoever! I was never that keen on her in the first place but thought that maybe TOWIE put her in a bad light, obviously not as she comes across worse in the book!

1.0 out of 5 stars Boring! 12 Feb 2013

This one wasn't for me I'm afraid! I'm a real TOWIE fan and love everything glamorous and girly but this book was plain boring.

Had always viewed Sam as one of the more modest and genuine cast members of TOWIE, however having read this book, which I was surprised to find in a pound shop, my opinion of her has changed. She repeatedly makes snide comments about other cast members, goes on about herself as if the shows success is down to her. She has done herself no favours writing this book as it has made her look like a snob who thinks there is no one else like her.

2.0 out of 5 stars Boring 18 Jan 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I found this cringeworthy, difficult to read and dull! All about her clothes and look rather than finding anything out about her. Chloe Sims book was a much better read

2.0 out of 5 stars The Truth about TOWIE? 19 May 2012
By RC
Format:Hardcover
So I'm a massive TOWIE, and have been an avid supporter of it since it first launched in 2010, with Sam being one of my favourites, so I was quite excited to read this book after it was described as "the truth about TOWIE" - I've just, this day, finished reading the book after owning it for a week, and all I can say is that I was very disappointed.

The first few chapters start very much like a biography - talking about her childhood and teens, which was quite interested - learning about how she grew up with some of the TOWIE cast members (Lucy and Amy), and her flings with Mark Wright when she was 16. All very interesting to read if you're a fan of the show, but it then quickly just falls down to Sam basically describing her looks and fashion sense. In all honestly, about 70% of each chapter revolves around her appearance; infact in about 5 chapters all she does is describe her hair, her fashion sense, her diet, her makeup and then her tanning.. all very boring to be honest, and almost somewhat "page filling".

In all honest, there is not MUCH description about TOWIE itself - I don't know whether this is because Sam's still contracted into the show, and therefore can't discuss it in depth, or what (as she says - she's grateful for what they have given her), and she only really described the stuff that TOWIE has produced; she discusses her business Minnie's, doing P.A.'s (personal appearances) across the UK, and then TOWIE winning a BAFTA.

1.0 out of 5 stars Dross 2 Jan 2014
By Steph
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I never stop reading a book half way through, until this one. Never been so bored ever, Sam loves herself, she thinks everyone else does too. I slated Chloe's book too but this one is far worse, at least Chloe has a life story. I really like Sam in the show, she is average looking and down to earth, unfortunately she thinks she is so much better. Avoid, you won't get the time spent reading this back

1.0 out of 5 stars Dreadful 25 Nov 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Terribly written. No substance. Three chapters on how to tan? Really, really poor. Wouldn't recommend to anyone even if you are her biggest fan.

This book is dreadful. I skimmed through the second half. I got the impression from the show that Sam was fairly grounded and decent. Her book demonstrates a different person. Read more
