    Whitney Houston (1963-2012) was a superstar. Few in the world of show business reach the career heights that she attained with what seemed such ease. Her megastardom peaked in 1992 with the release of the hit movie The Bodyguard and the international number-one hit "I Will Always Love You". The movie soundtrack still stands as one of the best-selling albums of all time. She won six Grammy Awards, two Emmy Awards, thirty Billboard Music Awards, and twenty-two American Music Awards, and amassed a vast fortune. Her death has shocked the entertainment world and her fans.

    Story
    What would have made Whitney Houston! better?

    The sources are mainly unnamed. The bulk of the time is spent repeating critic reviews on Houston's performances; without them, this audiobook would probably last two hours at best. And the narrator is fairly boring.


    What could Mark Bego have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    It would depend on the subject of his work.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Alex Barrett?

    I don't know; just anybody but Alex. Maybe she just wasn't that into the book.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    If anything, it shows in detail what Whitney Houston had to deal with for years, from her own issues, those close to her, Bobby Brown, and obviously, critics with an axe to grind... such as this writer's book.


    Any additional comments?

    There had already been a review on this book, and the reviewer summed it up. I should have taken heed. If you love the Enquirer, Globe, or E!, here's a book for you.
