This review is from: Dirty Blonde: The Diaries of Courtney Love (Hardcover)
This book is worth a read if you're a big fan of Courtney, but I felt it was a bit substance-less, especially after all the raving reviews I've heard from people. Maybe I'm missing something here. The first half of the book from Courtneys days before fame is pretty interesting. On one level it's predictable, the school reports are telling. On another level it's quite warming to see the kind of scribbles a lot of us wrote as teens. However, the further we get into the book the more filled it becomes with pictures 'taped in', rather than writing, which was a let-down for me. You can google 'Courtney Love' and find the same pictures floating about - I was looking for writings and expression. Reading a diary, I was expecting more expression and/or emotion. As I say, this all tails off by the end - perhaps that in itself is telling of Courtney.

To summarise, if you are a big fan of Courtney you will find large parts of this interesting, and it's a plus that it is a beautifully presented book, but ultimately it leaves you wanting more than what you got. However if you're not especially a fan of her and are expecting to get an interesting read this is probably not worth your money.
