5.0 out of 5 stars Very well written, 7 Feb. 2005
This review is from: Courtney Love: The Real Story (Paperback)
I am into grunge and love bands like L7, Soundgarden, smashing pumpkins and Nirvana. I must admit, I never really liked Courtney Love as celebrities go but this book has really changed my perception of her. This book was created with Courtney's permission and is authorised. It is extremely well written in a matter of fact but fluid style with the author occasionally leaving certain aspects of Courtney's story open to your own interpretation. I discovered things about Courtney I had no idea about and managed to finish the book in just two days which is very quick for me (i'm a slow reader). Although the book does not directly ask such questions, it really has made me consider the theory that people are more prone to hating Courtney for her personality and behaviour because she's a woman. There are so many arrogant, show off, jaded male rock stars who have problems with drugs and people never seem to pass comment on them but whenever Courtney is mentioned they immediately roll their eyeballs. I picked up the book disliking Courtney and put it down admiring her!
