Part two is every bit as gripping as Sharon's first explosive book!
on 9 October 2007
To sum up this widely trailed (and attacked) book is actually quite easy. She got the titles mixed up.
The first of her autobiographies should have been called "Survivor", and this one "Extreme"!!!
In her first book, Sharon could possibly have painted herself as a survivor of abuse from her family and husband Ozzy. This book blows that image away completely and comprehensively; detailing the life of the Sharon we 'know' for the past few years. Very much a portrait of a fiery, no nonsense and wonderfully flawed individual who deals with the ups and downs of fame together with the loss of her father.
Sharon Osbourne is now in her fifties and talks at length about her health and cosmetic issues, and how she is relaxing into her middle aged years. Her comfortable, gossipy style makes for an engaging read together with her side of many of the red-top newspaper stories that have been part of her life since she became a television megastar. Well worth reading and essential if you have already read her first book, as it complements and expands on that record-smashing autobiography.
