To be honest - it was terrible.
on 20 August 2012
This the worst sort of biography: Whilst I don't doubt it is factual and well researched; it comes a across as a collection of cuttings and quotations from various sources than are cobbled together into a disjointed narrative. If my memory serves me right, because I can't remember much about this book, it has the occaisional quip from the author which are dreadful and incongruous. I don't know whether it is poorly written or poorly edited, but it seems to me as if some editor has commissioned a book from somone who wasn't really interested in their subject, just to make a few quid from the Simon Cowell bandwagon. I rarely write negative reviews as every book is someone's hard work; but in this case I was prepared to make an exception.
