The book could have been put together by just about anyone with an internet connection, I say 'put together' as there is no writing skill involved here. This biography consists of a pile of readily available facts and quotes from Davina strung together with a huge amount of padding and conjecture. It seems on every page that the 'Author' feels the need to write mini biography paragraphs for people completely unconnected to Davina... Simon Dee from radio Caroline??? The only connection between the two is that they are in the media, why the hell does he get a mention? Here's a typical entry (from memory as I can't bare to open the book again!) 'Davina went to school with Nigella Lawson, they were 'probably' friends. Nigella Lawson began her career in 1980 BLAH BLAH BLAH' so we then get a page on Nigella Lawson despite the fact that her and Davina only 'may' have been friends. This book is an annoying load of rubbish and you would glean far more information about Davina in a few google searches and an hour or two on You Tube. Do not waste your money on this tosh!
What is a tenth rate author to do - he's damned either way.
How could a book about Ms McCawful not reflect the woman herself and be completely uninteresting and facile? Any author can only weave so much magic - it would even be beyond the abilities of monkeys with typewriters to make such a book worth reading given the subject. However one monkey with a broken pencil would have had a better chance than Mr Goodall - who, evidently, is capable of writing books for monkeys but not able to equal the quality of their work.
Davina is a popular and well loved personality - what a terrible waste that her fans have spent money buying this book rather than anything of quality and worth, after all the money spent could have been given to Comic Relief. However, at least charity shops will do well out of it as many will end up there!
I didn't enjoy the book at all, in fact I gave up after about 30 pages and its in the bag for the charity shop. I was expecting the book to be all about Davina, however, it seemed to me that the author wanted to let the reader know how many other famous people he knew and went on to talk about each one before getting back to the subject matter. Very disappointed.
