Mel B s book was definitely revealing than Geri and Victoria s autobiographies I learned so much about the year between forming the group and becoming famous I really enjoyed reading her diary entries It s crazy how much those girls traveled in October 1997 they were in France Spain France again Turkey for their first live show Singapore India Hong Kong Japan and England I can imagine how exhausting that could becomeI did find a few contradictions in the bookfor example Mel B said that she felt uncomfortable meeting fans because she didn t know what to say to strangers Later she mentions that she is completely comfortable in front of strangers She also said that the 3rd Spice Girl album was unnamed at the time the book was writtenbut later talks about the album being called Forever I may have caught these contradictions because I read the book within a weekHappy to read another Spice book even if it s outdatedFree read ✓ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ´ Melanie B.

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 pre 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

How I Came To Read This Book After reading Geri Halliwell s first autobiography in one day this year I felt like picking up the final Spice biography out there Mel C Emmacan t wait to read yoursThe Plot Mel B s 500 page biography covers her life from babyhood to motherhood and how she went from a girl just interesting in entertaining to 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 ish pages 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 painting a much complex picture 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 particularly boring it just gets a bit rambly and could use some of the polish 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
