Adele - eine britische Sängerin, die man spätestens im Jahr 2011 nicht mehr überhören konnte. Nach "19" hat sie mit ihrem zweiten Studioalbum "21" sämtliche Rekorde gebrochen und ist endgültig zum Weltstar aufgestiegen. In ihrer Biografie wird ausführlich auf ihre Kindheit und ihre Karriere eingegangen, die zum Glück noch lange nicht vorbei ist.

Da ich ein großer Fan von Adele bin und ich sie in Interviews immer wahnsinnig sympathisch fand, war es für mich ein absolutes Muss, dieses Buch zu lesen

Cała jedna gwiazdka dodatkowo za sentyment do Adele i wspomnienie tamtego poranka, kiedy pierwszy raz usłyszałam "Rolling In The Deep".
(a może nawet trochę za cover - z zapowiedzią - Randy'ego Harrisona;))

This would probably have been more interesting to me had I not been such a big fan and read up on her life in other ways. Chas Newkey-Burden goes in depth into this star's childhood, adolescence and current success. I was aware of Adele's close relationship with her mother but found it an interesting read when Newkey-Burden discussed her father and other relations who have had an impact on her in one way or another, whether it be small or big.
I was not aware of the BRIT school and enjoyed findin

If you thought you liked Adele before, well now you will be glad to know that you've made a great choice in an artist. You will love her even more after reading her biography of her personal life, her education and finally how she really feels about management and the music business in both the UK and the USA.

Adele is raw in her thoughts where she will tell you exactly how it feels, but deep down she is genuine and has an all-around down to earth personality. I am addicted to her musical talent

I love this book!! If you want to read a good, well written book about Adele, then this is the book to read! This biography talks about Adele and her childhood to where she is now! Adele is making great history, and if you are a huge fan lie me, you will definitely like it!!!

I have started reading this book, although I knew Adele is very young to have a biography. Everything that is written in the book is well-known by her public, i.e., there are no real news in her biography. If you follow the news, there's no need to read this book.

gave up on this not cos the book wasnt any good just think i love adele the singer but not sure was interested enough to read the book, it was a well written book and funny though...
Melissa
I love Adele but this book was just okay. I didn't really learn anything new from it. I think a book written by her would be so much more interesting.

Great BOOK!!! I loved how he really explained every detail and HOW he put the information into the different chapters.
Katrina
Nothing here that you may not have read in a newspaper/magazine intervuew. Poor selection of photographs
Lauren
This was written so badly, I would have done better just reading Wikipedia.
