Book Description

As a child Susan struggled at school and spent many years dreaming of being noticed at local talent shows. The death of her mother and the strength of her faith finally gave Susan the courage to apply for Britain's Got Talent in 2009. The rest as they say is history...Her rendition of I Dreamed a Dream, from Les Miserable, captivated not only the British audience but audiences across the globe. Millions of fans logged in on YouTube and Twitter making Susan an overnight success. Susan's debut album was recognised as the fastest selling UK debut album of all time selling 411,820 copies. In the U.S, the album sold 701,000 copies in its first week, the best opening week for a debut artist in over a decade. I Dreamed a Dream also outsold the rest of the top 5 albums combined. In only a week, it sold more than 2 million copies worldwide, becoming the Fastest Selling Global Female Debut Album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Living the Dream 1 Jan. 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I wanted to know more about Susan Boyle's past and this book gives it all, past, present and future. I finished the book feeling I know her so much better now and I did indeed learn much more about her life and what makes her unique. Susan is a very well-mannered, caring, gracious lady who has had an excellent upbringing. Yes, she has a slight mental weakness, but then don't we all?

2.0 out of 5 stars Susan Boyle. Living the Dream 10 Dec. 2010
Format:Paperback
I was disappointed with this book because of its repetitiveness by quoting various media responses to the same stages in Susan's progress and success.I abandoned it half way through.

2.0 out of 5 stars Repetition, repetition, repetition. 16 Dec. 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book simply told the story of how Subo surprised everyone with her voice whilst looking a bit hairy and frumpy.
Nothing we didn't already know.
However it repeated and repeated that story over and over again only in slightly different guises.
I found myself (a normally slow reader who likes to absorb the details of a story/biography, or whatever I am reading) skimming and eventually skipping pages of the same thing page after page. Eventually deleted it from my Kindle. Not worth the reduced price I paid for it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Susan Boyle 27 Feb. 2011
Format:Paperback
A great read. Susan is underestimated. She is obviously a very talented singer but underneath that quiet shy exterior there is a very humerous lady. Susan is well deserved of stardom.

Susan Boyle: Living the Dream

Makes for a good read. But enjoyed Susan's book 'The Woman I was Born to be' more than this one.

2.0 out of 5 stars Sugar Boyle 15 Jun. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Not 1 of my favourite reads. Too sugary for me and a bit boring. More like a long newspaper article.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Enlightening Read. 22 Jan. 2013
By SUSIEQ
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is an interesting read all about the rapid rise to fame of the singer Susan Boyle.
It tells us things about Susan personally, and what actually happened to her, from school days up until her phenomenal success during her time on Britain's Got Talent and after.
We learn a lot about Susan's personality too.
This is a book well worth reading.
