5.0 out of 5 stars Raw, Fun, and Gutsy, 17 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
What a great, fun book! This is a must read if you are interested in the history of punk music, how women's roles in music have changed in recent years, and if you just love good rock memoirs. Viv gives a gutsy account of her friendships with Sid Vicious, Johnny Thunders, Mick Jones of the Clash and others. And her telling of the story of her band The Slits is full of desire and ambition and hope. Viv lets the reader feel how she triumphed over her fears. As she says, "That should be written on my gravestone. She was scared. But she went anyway." She also touches on darker topics. Her raw honesty in revealing her experience of abortion is shocking in its truth. I read it in one day. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Modern, raw and in-your-face: get excited about reading again., 18 Jun. 2014
This review is from: CRACK (Kindle Edition)
CRACK is one of the most gripping books I have read. At each interval, I couldn’t wait to find out what happened next. Modern, raw, and in-your-face, CRACK digs into the worlds of champagne hostessing and petty theft, and pulls out a glittering truth about our common humanity, even in the darkest places. From the juicy sex scenes to the warm friendships to the desolation of prison, Danielle brings the reader into those worlds she passed through, holding nothing back. If you want to get excited about reading again, try Danielle Imara’s CRACK.
