Revenge is the debut novel from music manager, reality TV star and all-round legend Sharon Osbourne. It centres around two sisters: one has ‘it’ and the other does not. This leads to a lifetime of jealousy, one-upmanship and – you guessed it – revenge.

The plot is very well put together. It isn’t, as you might expect, a thinly veiled dig at long-standing rival Danni Minogue. The only similarities between Revenge’s Stone sisters and the Minogues is their sibling status. You’d be hard pushed to tur...more
Ok, so the sparkley glitter cover caught my attention, and so I checked it out from the library--good thing I sisn't spend any $$ on it. Trashy novel, but count it as a gulity pleasure. Easy to read--I did it in a day.
mmmmm, this was okay. i got bored with it and lost interest towards the end. it was like watching an episode of beverly hills 90210.
I haven't read either of Sharon Osbourne's autobiographies but I know they were really well received. When I received a copy of her first foray into the world of fiction I was curious to see what sort of a tale she had spun.

The plot is loud and brash, and completely addictive. It covers every base you'd expect from Mrs O - there's scandal and rivalry, feuds and fame, and more than a smattering of sex. The story weaves all of these elements together into a thoroughly enjoyable romp of a read.

Amber and Chelsea Stone aren’t exactly what you’d call close – they might have grown up together but their childhood’s couldn’t have been more different. Amber was the apple of her mother Margaret’s eye while she had a real disdain for elder daughter Chelsea, who just adores her father. When Chelsea gets an acting part Amber was auditioning for, the rivalry begins and nothing will be the same again.

Amber’s career then takes another direction and goes off in a big way, while Chelsea’s begins to f...more

Yes, THE Sharon Osbourne, reality TV matriarch and successful music promoter. So you think you know what to expect when you pick it up. But, surprisingly, it’s not just chic lit froth. Featuring the rise to fame of two talented siblings, it has an authenticity that makes it worth reading. Amidst the set pieces and sentiment Osbourne’s own voice comes out as clearly as if she were talking directly to you, accent and all. Like Osbourne herself, the novel combines a slick, inoffensive exterior with...more

I never looked at Sharon Osbourne as an author but she does a great job with Revenge. Chelsea and Amber Stone are sisters working toward similar careers. It is hard to be in the same profession because it can become competitive. The world of entertainment can take its toll and the sisters soon find out that their careers may not be worth their sanity.
Margaret has lived her life for her daughters. Margaret's love for her daughters start tearing them apart. When their family secrets are revealed t...more

I bought a hardback of this either 2 or 3 years ago - I forget and just got round to finisheing the last quarter tonight. The book was very well written, interesting and at some points very emotional. I absolutely loved the gay storyline, it just, for me, was fantastic. Very moving and interesting.

All the way through, I really empathized with Chelsea more than Amber - she was too whiney, but I saw some of myself in Chelsea's character so when she didn't actually get a happy ending, I felt a lot...more

I've had this hardback for a while now, having bought it at a knock-down price. Its been sat on my bookshelf unread, until I decided to have a sort out of books for the charity shop and decided to give it a go before passing it on... I'm so glad I did!

I was actually very surprised about a) how well written it is and b) the compelling story line, which draws you in and urges you to read on; I finished this book in a day and a half and loved the "revenge" twist at the end which took the reader to...more
Book starts off slow, lots of random sex scenes in the middle (lots of sex scenes) but if it finishes nicely, albeit a bit quickly. Not a bad effort for the Princess of F'N Darkness, but not the best effort either.
Simone Perren
Overall, a good read for general passing the time but it didn't really have the staying power which would make me read it again and again. Rather a passing pleasure for one time enjoyment!
The plot was well written.....but could've been better I feel. Anyway it was a good read!
LeighAnn Eva
Surprisingly addictive. I had no idea Sharon had even written a novel until I found it in the library. Of course, being the worlds biggest Ozzy fan, I had to pick it up. I was prepared for much worse so I was pleasantly surprised. Lots of reviews about the characters not being "psychologically developed"; the book is black with silver glitter. And hot pink writing. Written by the wife of the most notorious rocker ever, what did you expect? Its her first novel, give her some credit. I enjoyed it...more
Alice Oakley
I'm a big fan of Sharon Osbourne, and I wasn't expecting anything ground breaking here, but I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the writing. The story was enjoyable, though there was a little too much sex in it which just started to bore me after a while. I didn't like the character of Chelsea, I didn't connect with her at all, although I loved Amber! A little dissatisfied with the ending as well, I would have liked to know a little more about what happened to everyone. Room for a seque...more
Lisa Bennett
did not think much of this, and was expecting so much. it is so similar to the author. filled with talk of sex and swearing. the whole thing reads like a story from a soap opera. impossible to believe. reminded me of Eastenders! didn't enjoy it at all. totally disappointed. she should stick to her biographies, which are great.
Shell Stitcher
Surprisingly I really quite enjoyed this book. For me it was a page turner.

All the characters were very well rounded and I loved reading what was going to happen next, the only flaw was how it ended, it left me wanting more. Left me wanting to know what was next for the sisters, their mother and uncle derek.
An unexpected read for me. I didn't know Sharon Osbourne wrote books. It was a great read and completely enthralling. I'm glad I picked it up (solely by the cover nevertheless). I liked the ending and I would love to read a sequel to this book.
Missy Angolia
Quick and entertaining read by Mrs. O. Intriguing and very scandalous, as an insider like the author undoubtedly knows. Thoroughly enjoyed it!
It's a good read for a train ride. It would seem Osbourne is thinking about writing a sequel.. don't think it's necessary.
This book was brilliant. Quirky and engaging. Sharon Osbourne did a great job, her personality shines through this book.
This book was pretty good. The sparkly cover is what attracted me to it. It's worth reading!
Michelle Hammond
Surprised to find it a v.good read. Much like reading a Jackie Collins or Jilly Cooper.
It's quite nice chicklit actually. Well written and entertaining. I was surprised!
Could've been a solid four stars if the ending weren't so inconclusive.
I really like Sharon Osbourne, but I don't think she should write books. :(
Best thing I can say is the cover is very pretty. No further comment.
Alice Hernandez
After the second Chapter you will hooked loved drama drama

It was a bit spicy but it was good.
This book is amazeballs
