Review

Vintage Sharon . . . fiery and passionate (HEAT)

The formidable Mrs O is just as honest and open in this second instalment of her life story as the first . . . a real page-turner (WOMAN)

Shazza goes even deeper to reveal the secrets behind the headlines (LOOK)

Like Extreme, Survivor is eye-wateringly frank, and very funny (EVENING STANDARD)

Format: Hardcover
To sum up this widely trailed (and attacked) book is actually quite easy. She got the titles mixed up.
The first of her autobiographies should have been called "Survivor", and this one "Extreme"!!!

In her first book, Sharon could possibly have painted herself as a survivor of abuse from her family and husband Ozzy. This book blows that image away completely and comprehensively; detailing the life of the Sharon we 'know' for the past few years. Very much a portrait of a fiery, no nonsense and wonderfully flawed individual who deals with the ups and downs of fame together with the loss of her father.

Sharon Osbourne is now in her fifties and talks at length about her health and cosmetic issues, and how she is relaxing into her middle aged years. Her comfortable, gossipy style makes for an engaging read together with her side of many of the red-top newspaper stories that have been part of her life since she became a television megastar. Well worth reading and essential if you have already read her first book, as it complements and expands on that record-smashing autobiography.

I think there was no way that Sharon was ever going to pull something out the bag the second time around that lived up to Extreme. Maybe it's because I really didn't know that much about her early life that I found Extreme so compelling, and because so much of what is in this book is in the newspapers and has been well documented on television I wasn't as gripped this time around.

Having said that, it is still vintage Sharon, loud, often vituperative and searingly honest. What makes her slamming of other celebrities so acceptable is the fact that she is just as critical of her own mistakes and actions. As such you feel that what she is saying is weirdly o.k. I did think at times though this book read like more of a hit list of people she wanted to get even with rather than a continuation of her life story. I still enjoyed it though.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed Sharon Osbourne's first autobiography "Extreme", it was a hair raising true story and a juicy read to boot. However, this sequel is more or less a list of arguments and feuds she has had with various people. It depicts how someone treated her, what she thinks of them, and what she said to them. Its a bit one sided and she more or less has the same arguments and the same reactions to a host of different people, almost all of them famous. I can't say I agree with her behaviour, she is very rarely sorry, and I can't help feeling a bit uncomfortable with how she talks to people sometimes (I think she grossly overdid her dressings down of Chris Tarrant and Piers Morgan). I also thought it a bit odd that the book is dedicated to her dog Minnie. However, Sharon is undoubtedly her family's champion and will protect them fearlessly, even if the slight is perceived rather than true. She certainly sings Ozzy's praises which is only right, being his wife. However, I did balk a little at her boasts of how he has been famous for forty years and changed the face of both rock music and television. Lovable as he comes across, that does sound a little tall for a man who is a good heavy metal singer and songwriter.
There are also anecdotes where Sharon has obviously been a dreadful show off, stealing limelight, the thunder and the show whenever possible and I am sure that would grate on the nerves of many. Still, she really knows what she's talking about when she is managing Ozzy's career and their business affairs and she openly admits her talk show was a turkey. Having said all this, I can't deny its a cracking read, and I also can't deny that much as I want to, I just can't seem to dislike her, annoying as she can be.

I have just finished this book and i can just say WOW!!! just as good as extreme, survivor is full of sharon's wit and humour and had me laughing at some parts and crying at others. It's unbelieveable how much sharon has been through in just two years and i wish her all the best. just a great book.

I know she has had her problems - who doesn't know? - but what a vile, nasty, bitter woman she is. And this "book" (sic) only serves to further her "reputation" (sic) as a loathsome individual.

By Glenn Cook HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 7 July 2014
Format: Audio CD
NOTE THIS IS A REVIEW OF THE ABRIDGED AUDIO BOOK READ BY PAULA WILCOX.

As this is a review about the audio version I need to focus of Paula Wilcox' reading of Sharon Osbourne's autobiography.

In her first book Sharon read the 3 CD abridged version. This gave extra gravitas and relevance to the fact that it was an autobiography.
Sharon Osbourne Extreme: My Autobiography: Extreme - Read by the Author

This one is different in two respects- firstly it is read by an actress - Paula Wilcox and second the abridged book is just 2 Cds long and not the 3 of her first.

When I first started to listen to the reading my first thoughts were oh no it's Paula Wilcox reading in a Sharon Osbourne type voice- 'put on' as we used to say.

(I am reminded of Frank Skinner's excellent reading of Ozzy Osbourne's autobiography- excellent to by the way.)

Whilst I accept why Frank read Ozzy's I am puzzled why Sharon did not read her's after she made such a brilliant job of the first.
I Am Ozzy

Paul is excellent with her 'Sharon voice'
BUT after the first few chapters you get used to it and actually it makes the reading all the more believable.
In a nutshell we accept Paula's voice as the voice of Sharon- F swear words and all.

I should add a warning hear that Sharon- or rather Paula swears like docker.

I myself have no problem with swear words but some do.

You have been warned.
