Sharon Osbourne - Survivor is the follow up to her first book Extreme. With Extreme covering the first 40 years or so of her life, this second book spans the next 5 years or so. So you might think - what more has the woman got to tell? And the answer is simply - plenty!

The book starts around the time that Sharon was diagnosed with cancer - I have read a few reviews where people have said that the book disappointed them with how little was said about the time she spent fighting cancer. I have to

More honesty from Sharon in her second autobiography. Whilst not quite as unputdownable as her first book, this is still a great read. This is more of a tearjerker than her first, especially when she talks about losing her father to Alzheimers. I find this woman a true inspiration on how to cope with literally anything that life throws at you.

I genuinely enjoyed 'Extreme' but this one was a bit of a barrel-scraper. Clearly 'Extreme' did well so a couple of years on Sharon and her marketeers thought they could squeeze out a bit more.

A rather random collection of chapters with no great cohesion or story to bind them. More of the same, but far less punch.

The only good bit was the stuff about her and Ozzy's trips to Russia both before and after the Iron Curtain and the changes they saw.

More drama from Mrs O - giggles, tears and trauma. Her life is certainly not dull. She seems to thrive on attention and drama. A good book that details some of the stories behind the headlines. Seems honest.

As a follow up from her first bio "Extreme" Sharon once again lets it all out, no holds bared! Brilliant Woman and Amazing Story. She proves you can have major setbacks and still be a huge success!!

Brilliant book, fantastic read. It not only makes you laugh, but it also makes you cry, and I was in streams of tears when reading the chapter relating to her dad passing away. So sad.

I'm disappointed in this book since Mrs. Ozzy wrote a great autobiography the first time around. This time it was more of her ranting and being cranky. While this is a big part of her personality, I wished there was more to it. I even noticed a few simple errors in the grammar, and I'm surprised she wouldn't be the first person to make sure it was in perfect condition before being published. But with that said, many of her stories were hilarious, shocking (even a bit touching) and a great read. ...more

Finally received from play.com

Disappointing. Compared to her first book Extreme this was all about her and her grudges. She is blaming her dad for not letting go but she is just like him then. This book seems to be written to show her enemies who are boss and to make some quick money. Yes some parts were interesting like the Russia part and I laughed twice cause she can sometimes be very funny, i give her that so I still give it 3 stars.

Sharon's first book was miles better than this one. I found that the first half of it was purely -these people pissed me off and i reacted like this - and in my view a lot if mad her look very bad - i would never have put any of it in if i'd've behaved that was as i would not be proud of it.

The later half was more meaningful about her dad and house move.

i feel like the book was a bit of a 'let's launch another while i'm in the public eye' sort of a scam

I didn't like this as much as her first memoir, Extreme. I think it focused more on some people and events that didn't turn out to her liking and Ms Osbourne getting back at them. I only particularly enjoyed reading about their trip to Russia. I also appreciate that she still took care of her ailing father, but that device in telling his story seemed like a way of at least making the book a bit interesting.

A lot less depressing than the first one but a lot of it sounded familiar - it's been a long time since I read her first autobiography but perhaps it's because it was also in that? Probably about half of the stories in there were ones I felt I'd heard before.

I like Sharon Osbourne for some reason. She has a great sense of humour and I like how she stands up for her family. She and the rest of her family seem like they'd be more fun than the Duggars who are very respectable.
And respectability is a bit disturbing to me for some reason.

What a shame. Ozzy's book was great. In this, Sharon just came over as an angry woman. 'everybody's avin a go at my faaamily'. Moanin minny.

Her screaming voice echoing in my head. Feels written in a haste to make a few dollars, but manages to capture a strong story of her life.
