4.0 out of 5 stars A look into the heart of the entertainment industry
I think the real message behind this book has been missed by many so called reviewers.

This book is a savage satire using the central character "fearne" as a lens through which to view modern popular culture. This is a book which really exposes the popular entertainment industry for the empty shell of a sham of a facade that it is.

The encounters...

1.0 out of 5 stars Very Disappointing!
As a fan of Fearne's, I was really keen to read this book and find out more about her life and her rise to fame. The book does cover this but wastes a lot of time giving loads of unneccessary detail on everything from the rise and fall of 'Tops of the Pops', Kylie Minogue's career and lots of other stuff which didn't really have anything to do with Fearne at all...

4.0 out of 5 stars A look into the heart of the entertainment industry, 15 Sep 2010
This review is from: Fearne Cotton - The Amazing Story of Britain's Brightest Young TV Star (Hardcover)
I think the real message behind this book has been missed by many so called reviewers.

This book is a savage satire using the central character "fearne" as a lens through which to view modern popular culture. This is a book which really exposes the popular entertainment industry for the empty shell of a sham of a facade that it is.

The encounters with the various celebrities show the lead character to have no self awareness and no understanding of her position in the world. Her life is so empty and of so little consequence that the narrative has to be padded out with the PR constructs that modern society pays far too much attention to already.

This significant and impressive artistic work is a challenge to modern society and so justifies many the shocking excesses that the author indulges in but can be so sickening at times than one often has to close the book and take a shower, reading on is just not an option. This feeling remains with me still and for this I cannot honestly give the book the full 5 stars

I've read a lot of biographies which do a really good job of covering the subjects life in depth. Unfortunatley, this is the worst biog I have ever read and it seems as though the author just didn't have enough material to work with.
