Although it sometimes shames me to admit it I am a celebrity junkie i read the gossip in newspapers and buy 9 out of 10 issues of Heat as well as some others.
I always kind of admired Katie Price not for getting her boobs out but because she knew how to make a lot of money from doing so , she seemed like a normal girl that revelled in the celebrity lifestyle and bloody well enjoyed herself. I think a lot of young women (well I was then) could relate to her turblulant love life and many more could relate to her when she became a single mum to Harvey.
I was one of the people that was thrilled when she and Peter Andre met in the jungle and watched a real life love story develop across my TV screen.
I do have some sort of life though so I didn't go out of my way to watch the numerous documentaries about the couple, if it was on and there was nothing better to do I may have watched but only caught the odd episode.
I have to say when I got the news the couple had split I did feel quite sad for them both and hoped they'd be able to work it out but alas it wasn't to be.
So since I'd missed Katie And Peter Stateside on TV and missed the rows and the onscreen meltdown of their relationship when I saw this book on the shelf of the local ASDA I snapped it up.
I'm affraid to say this is one of the most boring books I've every read in my life. I'd never heard of the author before and although she does present an unbiased opinion of the relatonship breakdown, it reads like a list facts and quotes and is highly repative throughout. The blurb calls it 'unputdownable' but I had no problem putting it down and the only reason I picked it up again and finished reading it was so I could write this to warn others not to waste their money.
The book starts by telling the reader what happened at the end, what caused the most arguements etc but it's nothing new, it's already been reported in the press and been said on television. The book then goes on to explore the couple's relationship from when they met in the jungle to the weddng, the kids, the careers until the bitter end. But it's all bobbins!
I would rather stick pins in my eyes than read this again. everything in the book we've all heard before through the media, I could of wrote this just after watching old footage of shows and interviews and purusing press clippings (not that I have any).It just seems like some trying to make a quick buck by writing this and more fool me for buying and reading it.
I have given this two stars but thats only because of the nice photographs whch were much more interesting than the text.
