Taining to Challenged to Win part of one of the greatest girl groups of all time The bulk of the book thankfully deals with her life as a Spice Girl with just the first 150 ish and the last 100 ishages dealing with the before and after The Good The Bad This book is refreshingly upfront and frank in comparison to other celeb autobiographies I ve read this year I m looking at you Geri It s written in an extremely conversational style as though you re spending an afternoon or 20 as Mel dictates her life to you good bad and in between This is both the book s strength and its downfall It helps in Kids Draw Knights, Kings, Queens, Dragons painting a much complexicture of Scary Spice who she was before why she was so wired and the surprisingly vulnerable side she shows when it comes to her failed romance with back up dancer Jim Gulzar It s a bit tiresome however to get through some of the details Mel chooses to focus on I often wanted to shake her and be like wait noexpand upon that No not that The other thing She writes one entire section a long one at that in diary entries from the time which give you some good solid insight but are also tiring to read In comparison to Victoria Geri s bios she is a lot focused on the emotions and general insider tidbits rather than the hard facts It s not that the book is articularly boring it just gets a bit rambly and could use some of the olish that Geri Victoria s books had albeit not in the calculating way Geri came acrossThe Bottom Line A worthwhile read for any Spice fan you ll still learn tons you d never heard before Not as interesting as Geri Victoria s bios but Geri s are just obnoxious and Victoria s was extremely well written Anything Memorable I think it was just over the last week Mel B was uoted as saying some Spicey things might be on the horizon minus Victoria Also as with the other bios reading them after the fact actually makes them interesting as you know where Mel s career goes despite her optimism at the end of this book and that the Spice Girls indeed make a triumphant albeit brief return 50 Book Challenge Book 45 in 2009 After reading this I have to admit that I m leasantly surprised at just how normal the girls behind the Spice Girls really are Sure they became u I did enjoy this book a very honest insight into scary spices life Could do with less about realationships in it and about the girls friendship The diary forms got uite irritating however mel does show her vunerable side in this book a sight rarely seen before. O a working class mixed race family from Leeds Melanie B grew up feeling different from her schoolfriends Her hyperactive energy was channelled into drama school and in 1994 the Spice Girls were formed The rest is histo.
R mom s family sounds a bit crazy I can tell you thatI thought this book was wonderful though well written She has done so much in her life so far and it is really amazing to read about It s sad to read about her marriage to Jimmy she truly loved him and it just didn t work out Makes you feel really bad for her but she comes out of it fine and much stronger then before Very good book if your interested in learning about the life of Scary Spice from the Spice Girls I already read Geri Halliwell s If Only and For the Record and recently read Victoria Beckham s Learning to Fly I have to say I enjoyed Melanie Brown s book the least of the Spice Girls It was overly long spent too much time on her re Spice years and then was much vague during the Spice years and beyond It was an OK read but I found myself skimming it than reading it especially near the end A few years ago maybe 3 or 4 I read the autobiography of Victoria Beckham and Geri Halliwell s 2 booksIi bought them all from ebay cheap and could not get a hold of Mel B s book at the time After stumbling across a documentary on the Spice Girls on youtube in January I decided to try and find Mel s book I have no idea how I didn t find a copy last time cause there where so many copies up for grabs on ebay this time around Sporty and Ginger had always been my favorite Spice Girls but this book has made me like Mel B so much The book starts out really sweet because Mel takes her time to thank all the other Spice Girls but from the beginning it is clear that at the time things between her and Geri weren t going very wellThe book obviously tells us all about Melanie s life But besides wanting to share her life with us Melanie also seems to want to empower women especially those who are in bad relationships through sharing her own experiences There is a lot of Girl Power in this book and after going back an forth in my mind I decided to add it to my feminism shelf as wellThe book has uite a lot of Into the Planet photo s which I always like in these kind of books This book is a must read if you loved the Spice Girls and will make Melanie B one of your favorite Spice Girls How I Came To Read This Book After reading Geri Halliwell s first autobiography in one day this year I felt likeicking up the final Spice biography out there Mel C Emmacan t wait to read yoursThe Plot Mel B s 500 Dusk (Rosales Saga, page biography covers her life from babyhood to motherhood and how she went from a girl just interesting in enter.
