Okay so i came across this book (signed copy) in the local 1 shop I like her on TOWIE so thought I would give it a go. Started great really opened my eyes to what she has been through, then Mr Starship came in to it and that became the focus of the whole book, not sure how she could of ended the book but im sure there was better ways, Also I can understand were people who have left reviews are coming from she does repeat herself a lot in it unnecessary (we know you don't like house music you sai ...more

i gave up on this autobiography about 3/4s through, i personally found it very repetitive and quite contradicting. i really like chloe in towie, however in this booki she talks about how 'mr starship' is the love of her life, yet i didnt read of any happy times they shared, only about him standing her up and letting her down etc. she also talks about having such low self esteem reagarding weight/boobs etc that led to her getting surgery but in the next chapter shes full of confidence. i think i ...more

To be honest, I wasn't sure how to rate this book as on one hand it did keep me entertained, and I read it all the way through without getting bored, while on the other hand... well, it left me feeling very frustrated due to one particular "storyline" that ran through the book.

While Chloe herself seems nice enough she really does come across as being really damn naive in her autobiography, especially when it comes to men (or, in this case, the mysterious "Mr Starship"). Yes, many of us have had

I am so surprised at this book, I thought it would be just an average read but I whizzed through it in 2 days, that is amazing for me. There is something about Chloe you just have to like. Mr Starship sounds like a control freak though , everything is his way or the highway and I hope she wakes up and moves on.

Not too bad, but why is she chasing around a 'Mr.Starship' who clearly isn't too fussed about her! Apart from that's it's really what you'd expect from a reality TV's autobiography. A nice book to read when you've not a lot of time & want something easy going

Bit boring to be honest, no excitement in this book at all. Yawn. . . . I do like Chloe in TOWIE, but not much life experience to share at the min in time I'm afraid.

Well this book was good at the begining, until she met 'Mr Starship' and honestly I felt like the book just became about their relationship. Don't get me wrong I love Chloe, and I enjoyed reading the book... I just don't know how she could put up with a relationship that was so back and forth but hey. I guess we all get a bit crazy when we're in love.

She had a rough life and it was nice to see it from her view. shes not all glamour and parties, she had some really tough times.

I'd recommend this
I was suprised how much I liked this book! It was an easy going, quick read and quite interesting!

This women should be proud of herself, what a crap start in life she had.
Chloe really went to hell & back to get where she is now, anyone that knows her or are members of her family should be soo very proud off her.

Open & honest about many things that could have been kept out the book for her daughters sake in later years.

Loved reading this back to back with Sam's book, & Nanny Pats.

All TOWIE fans should read it.

Interesting however did feel at times that of she is struggling for money then why is she shopping in Selfridges & wearing Louboutins?
I like Chloe however this didn't make me warm to her any more than normal... When I read Cheryl Coles autobiography I really felt for her, not so much with Chloe though.

I agree with some of the other reviews, book was repetitive and was based pretty much around her chasing Mr Starship. Enjoyed reading about her childhood though and how close her family is. Shame it trailed off about half way through.

I read amazing reviews of this book so jumped on the band wagon to see. I think it's badly written, padded out and not as interesting as I expected it to be. Sorry Chloe!
