5.0 out of 5 stars She Lived Through This!, 25 Feb. 2004
This review is from: Courtney Love: The Real Story (Paperback)
I've been a fan of Courtney Love, her work and her world for a fair while now, but until I read this book, I was unaware of what a roller-coaster world it was that she came from, and what an awe-inspiring one woman rock-empire she has created for herself out of such pain and adversity.
This book doccuments Love's life in full; from her overly-rough childhood, to a stripping career throughout her teens, through the ups, downs and OD's of her and Kurdt [Cobain]'s relationship, leading right up to Hole's last album; Celebrity Skin.
As a whole, certain aspects may not be in as much painstaking detail as some people would like, but Poppy Z Brite has injected each page with a non-judgemental yet mesmerizing quality, which makes Love's story easier to relate to, and very hard to put down!
Whether you love her, or hate her; this is none-the-less a fascinating insight into Courtney's life, the people within it, and countless other contributing factors that have made her the kinderwhore-rock-goddess that she is today.
All In All, A Fantastic read; you're taken from laughter, to tears, through her darkest hours and chaotic self discovery and deep within her somewhat divine seeming inspiration. Must read for any Punk/Grunge/Riot Grrl/Rock fan and a remarkable viewpoint of the genre itself.
