Book Review: Wonderful
Rating: 5 stars
“If Only” shows the world just who lies beneath Ginger Spice; a shy, direction-less girl from the poor side of the tracks desperate to be somebody. Her recollections are at times both painful and funny, and the prose is well written. That was one of the nice things about the book – Geri writes like a person putting her thoughts to paper (not like so many others who try to cram as many ‘big-sounding’ words as possible to make themselves seem smarter).
She comes across as an intelligent yet fallible person whose dreams of success came true and is much the wiser for it.
I highly recommend this book (in fact I think that young girls everywhere should read it if only to discover how damaging false self-image can be). I look forward to reading the sequel “For The Record”, which picks up where “If Only” leaves off.
Book Review: third time’s a charm
Rating: 5 stars
I was die hard spice girls fan when I was growing up, I had bought the Geri Halliwell book, ‘If Only’ a long time ago, but I didn’t get around to reading it. I mean I started it twice but never finished it. Well, 5 days ago I picked it up and didn’t put it down till just a few minutes ago when I read the last sentence of the last chapter!
Normally I hate to read but the book intrigued me. I was really amazed at how well written this book is, and Geri Halliwell did an amazing job. She is brutally honest in the entire book, whether it’s about her eating disorder, or her glamour modeling, or the reasoning behind her departure from the spice girls in 1998.
This book is a great read, trust me cause you’re getting this amazing review from a person who never reads and doesn’t even touch a book over 100 pages! I recommend this book to anyone who is in need of some girl power, or just self-empowerment!
