Read from January 05 to February 24, 2011

I have to say overall I was not impressed with the writing. I love The mama's & The Papa's music so I wanted to read more about them as people. I read John's daughter's book about his sexual relationship with her.So I also wanted to see if he had some kind of warning signs with his wife..Yes is my oppinion he did. Michelle being only 16-17 when they strated a sexual relationship, while he was married to a woman he had two children with. All I really learned is how they met and what drugs they did. Could have found that info online and not be bored with the writing...This does deserve 3 stars though instead of the 2 I wanted to give it. I think she tried she is just not that good of a writer in my oppinion... LOVE her acting and singing though.

Jeannie don't give up so close to the beginning!! I have had books start with a whimper and finish with a bang! I so wanted this one to be good since I have it on my TBR shelf. :(

Love She is just a bad writer I think. It is so much just nonsense. Does not have much to do with the music and the interesting facts your would want to know. I am going to finish this one no matter what because I LOVE the music. I also want to get some more info on John just because I had read his daughters book..

Jeannie that's too bad Love. I'll be watching for your review! good luck :))
