Product Description

Book Description

The official autobiography from the Girls Aloud and Strictly Come Dancing star.

About the Author

Since she shot to fame in 2002 after appearing on Popstars: The Rivals, Kimberley Walsh has been best known as one-fifth of Girls Aloud, the most successful British girl-band ever. Her career has gone from strength to strength, and after twenty top-ten singles with the band, she's now striking out on her own. A starring role in West End smash Shrek The Musical was followed by a glittering turn on Strictly Come Dancing, where she made it all the way to the final - a true test of her popularity. Now embarking on a solo career, Kimberley has finally decided to tell her story.

I do like to read a variety of genres and do like the occasional showbiz biography to have a nosey into the lives of the rich and famous and see if they're so different to the average person. I read Cheryl Cole's autobiography a few months ago-this wasn't really a book I would have rushed out to buy but I saw her on the Allen Carr Chatty Man show and she came over really well and I downloaded a sample of her book and it was really so much better than I thought it would be. Kimberley Walsh's autobiography came up in my recommendations and was on offer for an amazing .49p! What a fantastic read. I didn't know much about this member of Girl's Aloud but, on reading this book, I have learned what an amazing personality she is and I do admire her. She didn't just decide to audition for a reality TV programme-her and her brother and sister have all paid their dues in the showbiz world. They all showed promise in acting and performing and, from an early age went to a local theatre school. They have all been in children's TV programmes from an early age and Kimberley's sister used to be in 'Emmerdale'. Kimberley's mum is a piano teacher and her mum's mum and dad 'were both quite musical too' and, in Kimberley's words they 'eventually turned into a sort of Yorkshire version of the Von Trapps'. Things haven't always been easy for the family, her mum and dad split when Kimberley was just six, their house was nearly repossessed and her mum would always be thinking of ways to earn extra cash. One thing that comes across throughout the book is how grateful Kimberley is for her success, she is always marvelling at how far she has come, always thanking so much for how things have turned out, never taking it for granted, always keeping momentoes of her performances in scrapbooks.Read more ›

I had previously read the Cheryl Cole autobiography and loved it, so was interesting in reading Kimberley's also.

It is a nice, easy read and very well written.

I liked Kimberley on both Popstars the rivals and Strictly come dancing, however I found the entire book very interesting, not just the chapters relating to these areas of her life.

She comes across as a warm, lovely person and I enjoyed reading about her life so far.

I have always liked girls aloud cheryl and kimberley being my favourite. Cheryls life is well documented so decided to read Kimberleys book instead. When she talks about her early years she writes how the family struggled for money which I found hard to believe considering her Mam was a school teacher and a piano teacher they lived in a lovely village and by all accounts a nice house and was able to go to drama school along with her siblings which doesnt come cheap. I felt like I was reading a book about the girl next door all very nice but very DULL! I Kimberley seems like a lovely person but her book couldnt hold my attention and I found myself flicking through.

I almost read the whole book in one go ! Except for chapter one, the first third is kimberley's youth, and the rest of the book is the history of Girls Aloud from Popstars the rivals to the 2013 split. Tons of little fun (and not-so-fun) anecdotes, and the true reasons that progressively led Girls Aloud to split. Kimberley seems sincere in all she says, and doesn't run her bandmates down, despite what some tabloids claimed. This autobiography is obviously a must for Girls Aloud fans, Kimberley fans and for people who want to have a taste of what a life in pop entertainment really is.

After reading Cheryl's book, I read Kimberley's too. And was not disappointed. It was nice to read a different perspective of the goings on of Girl Aloud days, and was really interesting to learn more about the roles each of the girls played in the group.

Kimberley's account of the goings on, were very honest, and seemed to match up with Cheryl's recollections pretty well too. I would say that Kimberley is slightly less guarded in her account than Cheryl, and is perhaps a little more blunt about things. Which is not necessarily a bad thing.

Kimberley has always been seen as the "Nice Description: Sensible One, Less Nice Description: Boring One" in Girls Aloud. Her life has had some very interesting bits within it. Obviously Girls Aloud takes up a very large part of it, as it did take up 1/3 of her life. As a big Kimba fan, I still learnt lots of new things about her. The last chapters made me cry, I won't spoil it for you, but it was a very touching section of the book, referring to her grandfather etc.

I have followed Girls Aloud's career with interest. After reading "All that Glitters" and Cheryl I thought I'd give this book a go. The story is honest and open. She gives an insight into being in a girl band, long term relationship, a westend career and Strictly Come Dancing. If you enjoy autobiographies and want something to read give this a go.
