This book was an OK holiday read, although very poorly written. There are quite a few quotes, anecdotes and bits of information repeated throughout the book, and several typos. Does no-one proof-read any more? It gave me the impression that the book had been hurriedly cobbled together and rushed to print whilst Sarah Millican is very popular. There are also several sections that don't refer to the woman herself at all, and describe the ins and outs of the comedy industry. If you have read other boigraphies/autobiographies of comedians, then these sections will be boring and patronising.

Firstly, for those who think Sarah wrote this, she didn't. Secondly, for the reviewer who complained it was ghost written. It wasn't. As advertised, it was written by Tina Campanella. For a journalist her sentence construction is dreadful. The book doesn't appear to have undegone any proof reading and most of the content is from interviews or quite blatantly got from the web. Like a lot of her generation's literati she doesn't bother to check facts. She really believes panel games/shows weren't invented until the 90's. She patronises Sarah's working class roots in idioms that belong in a first year sociology class and I would suggest that anyone who already knows and loves Sarah to give this badly written, unauthorised tripe a miss.

I really like Sarah Millican's humour but if she has sanctioned this book, she's maybe a bit of a money grabber rather than the warm woman I've previously thought her to be. The book give endless lists of shows where Sarah made a guest appearance and who appeared alongside her, usually ending in "Sarah held her own/stole the show". The book is also padded out by extensive quotations from reviews. Endlessly repeating what was said in a newspaper does not make a biography. It does make a very easy way for a journalist sitting in front of a computer screen to cut and paste to fill a book. Sarah, if you have any conscience, distance yourself from this lazy piece. Only for fans who feel they must collect everything.

Not good, it's rare I really don't like a book but this one reads more like a school essay than a published autobiography. Lots of repeats and waffle as if trying to reach the prescribed number of pages or words before it's handed back to teacher. I would not recommend this as even close to an intelligent read; life's too short to read poor books. Sorry Sarah if you are proud if this but someone else could have done a better job for you.

It was full of cliches, I wasn't thrilled with it. The writer kept going over the same ground. Five out of ten.

This book is ok but goes off tangent at times and talks generally about the world of comedy and not actually about Sarah Millican. I havent finished it as it hasnt kept my interest. Shame.

No point in me softening this review.
The author failed to engage me at all...which is odd because I am an avid reader.
In all honesty it dragged me down & made me question why I was so determined to get to an interesting bit. So I put it down after about half way through and doubt I will go back any time soon to finish it.
I think the crux was that the author totally failed to portray her subject, other than to give the reader an impression of a whining & whinging Sarah Millican, which I suspect isn't the the case at all.
