Litigi sono freuenti soprattutto uando Brooke rivendicherà la propria indipendenza nella vita privata e professionale da adulta farà delle scelto che condizioneranno irrimediabilmente il loro rapporto Divenuta a sua volta madre Brooke si renderà conto che i suoi atteggiamenti sono influenzati almeno in parte dalla donna che l'ha cresciuta E nonostante tutto uando Teri muore nel 2012 la figlia è al suo fianco con tutto l'a di cui è capace. Brooke wrote this book out of indignation for her mother s harsh critics She was determined to prove that Teri Shields was not the typical stage mother but the truth was far worse she was an abusive alcoholic that made her daughter her meal ticket It is sad to read Brooke s excuses for her mother her praise her glossing over the ugliness it just makes the abuse and neglect she endured seem far worse And though Brooke acknowledges she would never allow her daughters to make a film like Pretty Baby or even the provocative Calvin Klein ads she won t condemn or even criticize her mother for it Her inability to fully come to terms with her mother s abuse is depressing and near the end of the book I had to force myself to finish it If you re a fan the book is a fairly satisfying autobiography and worth the read but be aware that angry Brooke is inordinately fond of the F word and has sprinkled it liberally throughout

Tutte le altre è anche una manager intraprendente e protettiva votata alla carriera della figlia che cercherà in ogni modo di tenere lontano dalle numerose insidie del successo Nella vita privata però la forza e la determinazione svaniscono lasciando il posto a una donna fragile instabile e aggressiva dedita all'alcol La stessa Brooke cerca in più occasioni di aiutare la madre in difficoltà Il loro legame è misterioso e inconsueto e i. I was fascinated by Brooke Shields when I was a young child The Blue Lagoon was one of my favorite movies growing up There was always a certain curiosity about Brooke as a person The book strikes me as a biography rather than a memoir but it satisfied my curiosity about Brooke s childhood and how she got started in showbiz The book was supposed to deal with the relationship between Brooke and her mother but I felt like her mother did not come across as than a woman who was very involved in her child s life almost to the point where they were one person and also as a daily alcoholic which is so sad to me that Brooke was not able to bring her mother alive in the pages of this book There had to be to her mother than just the daily alcoholic binges I started to get a sense of extreme resentment from Brooke towards her mother and halfway through it began to wear me down By the end of the book as her mother is dying Brooke says And even if Mom had wanted to be kept alive at all costs forever I didn t want that I was sure I couldn t handle that Statements like this bother me as much as I try to understand it from someone else s point of view The care of older parents is a subject dear to my heart and it s hard for me to feel sympathetic when an adult child can refer to their parent in such a mannerI won this book in a Goodreads first reads giveaway This does not have any bearing on my rating or review of this book I did enjoy reading this book and would recommend it to anyone interested in reading about Brooke Shileds

    I am not sure how others will interpret this book but to me it came across as a rough draft written by a person that was just spewing and needed to have an editor with a firm hand and a very red correction pen Paragraphs rambled and repeated themselves incorrect tense of words and in some cases completely wrong words and large sections read like ideas than well thought out paragraphs You would think that Dutton or Penguin would kindly pat B

    Basically there is only one sentence in this book Brooke Shields' mother was an abusive alcoholicTurn the page and repeat that sentence 416 times I should stop reading biographies unless it's about Adolf Hitler because I always like people less after reading them There were a few interesting sentences that I had to read out loud to the nearest innocent victim At one point Brooke Shields absolutely insists th

    Poorly written and edited repetitive and at times so vague as to be confusing I think Shields didn't want to reveal too much about certain aspects of her life which I can understand but then either don't write a book or be a better writer so you can make it work anywayAnd yet I read the whole thing Skimmed in places but no

    I purchased the audio version on audible  I’m disappointed in both the content and the narration  The author goes into insufferable detail with each of her anecdotes In narrating her tone of voice seems to suggest that every bit of every facet of her life is fascinating and exciting and sometimes shocking  uite the contrary; haven’t

    Pretty impressed with Brooke's honesty about about growing up with an alcoholic mother living in the spotlight and then watching her beloved mom succumb to dementia Powerful and heartbreaking

    Not sure exactly why I picked this up since celebrity autobiographies are not my sweet spot It's basically 400 pages of assorted neuroses alcoholism and serious co dependence issues It's a sad story but not terribly profound or revealing You probably know uite a bit of this story already The writing is just OK but I don't think you read something like this for the writing If you are not a big Brooke Shields fan you mi
