Summary Õ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB ´ Brooke Shields

There Was a Little Girl

La vita di Brooke Shields non può certo definirsi noiosa I suoi genitori divorziano uando ha appena cinue mesi e da allora è la madre Teri figura ingombrante e problematica a prendersi cura della piccola Brooke inizia a posare come modella alla tenera età di undici mesi il primo passo verso una carriera che la renderà la bambina e poi l'adolescente più famosa della sua generazione Teri è l'artefice di tutto uesto e non è una madre come. 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 Brooke s hand and say thank you we will take it from here but no they let this drivel go on for four hundred monotonous pages Yes Brooke we get it your mother had a drinking problem and you did not separate from her the way most offspring do and until her death you did not know where she ended and you began This sad fact did not need to be repeated in every chapter It did not endear you to me it just made me sad for a daughter that was desperately trying to redeem her mother in the eyes of the public I am not saying that there was not love between mother and daughter I believe that they loved each other so much that there was little room for anyone else Unfortunately for Brooke from a very young age she decided to ignore her mother s compulsive lies and chose for most of her life to believe what she needed to believe Laughing off the stories as little white lies and making excuses became Brooke s full time job By the end of the book I was sad for Brooke Except for the alcoholism I was beginning to see Brooke as no different from her mother The stories were exaggerated name calling of ex boyfriends twisting situations to where she always came out on top Dramatic outburst and hyperbolic language seemed to be the same go to for both mother and daughter If you can make it to the end there is a very loving tribute and that is where the book should have ended But of course not the hand of reason did not eliminate the section telling of Brooke s purchasing yet another home and decorating it having a breakdown of sorts and rushing out to buying new furnishing that were along the likes of her husband and herself Really this should have been used as the beginning of another book One where she is finally building her own life Brooke herself said that the writing of this book was not cathartic for her and I would have to say that it was not beneficial to me either This is one of those books that is best picked up from a bargain bin or a library rummage sale

Review There Was a Little Girl

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

    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 that no one not

  5. says:

    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 pla

    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 y
