2.0 out of 5 stars Gladiatrix, 25 Feb. 2014

This review is from: Gladiatrix (Kindle Edition)
I rated this book two out of five stars. I really did enjoy some parts of this book. It wa pleasing in that it met my weakness for a strong feminist character, providing a mass of them. However, the huge lack of backstory for any character other than the main and about three other characters and scattered writing style really detracted from an amazing plot. There were a lot of powerful adjectives, but the constant switching between characters points of view and non-existence of any transition or fluidity between them gets pretty frustrating at times. The power is often more in single words than the actual sentences and it generally reads more as an Ancient Rome enthusiast with a thesaurus than an actual accomplished author. This book is worth a read if you literally have nothing better to do, but not one I would rush to buy.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Stone Cold Truth, 4 Feb. 2014

I thought this was an awesome read. Probably more a three and a half star than a four, but more deserving of a four than a three. I felt the first quarter seemed to drag a bit, probably more impatient to read about his career to care much for his upbringing, but in retrospect he was very open, and I feel you get to know him a lot more as Steve Williams because of it, there are also quite a few laughs to get out of it. Other than Debra, due to the constraints placed by court, he talks very openly and candidly about his failed relationships, as well as his experience of almost starving while starting out in Memphis, which also expose him far more as the man behind Stone Cold. I would've liked a little more on some of the guys backstage, it seems like there are quite a few names he avoids. His recounting also tends to be a little scattered in places, with him repeating himself a little in places, which can drag a little. If you're looking for a big reveal of all the politics and skeletons of the attitude era, you won't find it here. If you're curious as to who the man behind the TV personality is, and are interested to find out a lot of things you probably didn't know about his wrestling career before WWE, then this is your book!
