A fantastic insight into the Wilson sisters rise to fame & how they survived the fame to become true artists. They paved the way for women in rock & have the scars to prove it.
I had great hopes for this book, but I found myself dreading it when I forced myself to listen to the story. There were bright moments when the story dealt with the characters but there was way to much time (maybe why it was 45 hours) spent on how gemstones were acquired.
I almost didn't get this book due to the negative reviews about the accents. I admit they were a bit weird at first but I would hate for anyone to miss this great story due to the bad reviews. I got used to the accents though I don't know why they made that choice. The author has a great writing style which translates well into English. I actually liked it better in some ways than the "Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" series. A bit less preachy and better characterizations.
Janet Ian is a truly amazing person. Her talent as a signer, guitarist and song writer is obvious by her music but she's also a great writer. The road to success and back again is inspirational, even to those of us who lack musical talent. I especially liked how she blended her songs into the book, something I've found lacking in other biographies about musicians. She definitely deserved the Grammy for this performance!
