Wow, Ms. Halliwell certainly went through something to achieve fame and fortune. Then she reinvented herself when she went solo. I sometimes couldn’t put this book down because it was so catchy. Even though Ms. Halliwell has a penchant for being a good liar, many accounts of her life seem like they were open and sincere. But there will always be disputes, even if Ms. Halliwell says that everyone has his or her version of the truth.
For example, did she share the popcorn she stole at the Tank Girl audition with Victoria Adams (the future Posh Spice) as she claimed she did? Adams (later Beckham) mentioned in her autobiography that she refused the popcorn because it was stolen. Did Ms. Halliwell leave the Spice Girls because she couldn’t do it anymore, or was it because of a power struggle with a fellow band member? Is she committed to the cause of breast cancer, or is it simply a publicity stunt?
Book Review: Halliwell: If Only
Rating: 4 stars
I bought this book on a whim when I was shopping for my friend’s birthday present a few years ago. I don’t regret buying it. I felt it was heartfelt although it was peculiar of her to write it just after her split from the Girls. If you were/are a fan of the Spice Girls, especially the one formerly known as Ginger Spice, I suggest you buy this book.
Book Review: Great Book!
Rating: 5 stars
I was shocked on 1998 why she left the band and really with all the stories going on about when and how she left I could not get it until I bought this book. As I was reading the book, and I was amazed how Geri opened her life in this book. I had to read the book twice because you just have to with this one but I did get it at the end and it was a really good book!
