“ Genre: Fiction / Author: Katie Price / Hardcover / 304 Pages / Book is published 2008-07-17 by Century „
First of all , if you follow the world that is celebrity then I'm sure you'll have heard of Katie Price's recent troubles. If not (and where have you been ?) I will explain to you who Katie Price is ;
Katie Price was born in Brighton on May 22nd 1978. Katie Price started her career off as a glamour model named Jordan. Although she was 'famous' in the 'lad mags' world , she wasn't that well known outside of it. However , in 2004 she appeared on the ITV television programme : I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here , where she met her husband , Peter Andre in the jungle , that she became more well known , and became a brand! After modelling , Singing , being a television personality and being a regular favourite in celebrity magazines , she turned her hand to author. She is now said to be worth £40 million!
'Angel Uncovered' is the third fictional book from Katie Price , although it isn't exactly Katie Price who writes them : Katie comes up with ideas and then ghost writer named Rebecca Farnworth
writes the story , and then Katie Price puts her name to it (so it sells more copies!).
Angel is now Britain's top glamour model , and is married to footballer Cal. Together they have a baby daughter. Soon , Cal is transfered to AC Milan and so this means the family must move to a foreign country ? Will Angel survive been so far away from her family and friends ? What happens when Cal's ex turns up ? Read Angel Uncovered to find out!
'Angel Uncovered' is the sequel to 'Angel'. This book follows on from the first book , so I think it's best if you have read the first one before reading this one.
I had read Katie's second book , Crystal first and so that was the one which introduced me to the world of 'Katie Price Book World'. I loved it so much , that I decided after reading that one , that I would have to read the first one Angel. (If I'm honest I didn't think there would be anymore books after the first two , and that it would just be a 'one off' project' , although there are now a total of four!). I was lucky that my friend had a copy of Angel ,and I had a copy of Crystal ; both of us had read the books we owned , but wanted to read the other one ; so instead of spending £7.99 (or however much the books cost at that time) , it meant we could swap them for free , yet still get a really good read!). I loved Angel and so when I heard there was a new book; Angel Uncovered , I just had to get my hands on a copy of it!
First off all , I think you have to be a fan of Katie Price in order to enjoy this book (and as a matter of fact , any of her 'novel books'). If you don't like her attitude , then it's more than likely that you won't like the books , as they contain a lot of of her 'Jordan attitude'. I also think that Katie based this book on her own experiences ; Angel is a glamour model from Brighton , settles down , has a family etc. Sometimes when I was reading Angel Uncovered , I kept think 'Am I reading about Angel or Katie?'. As a reader , the plot is exciting with lots of twists and turns , but as I'm a big fan of Katie's and know a lot about her , I found that although I enjoyed reading it , I did find certain details preditctable. It was as though Katie is telling us her life story , in disguise , by using other names , and changing the characters' behaviours sometimes. Without trying to give to much of the story away , I will try to explain to you what I mean ; In real life , Katie was/is a glamour model (so is Angel!) , Katie is from Brighton (so is Angel!) , Katie got really bad post-natal depression (so did Angel). I just think , that as it's more than likely going to be her fans , who already know so much about her , buying her books , it's a bit predictable. It's as though she's picked up her autobiography , used the same 'story' , just changed the characters names , and changed the around the order of events slightly.
Another criticism I have , regarding this book , is the fact that it isn't that interesting compared to the previous 'Angel' novel. In the previous book ; Angel was this exciting and fun character , although she's really miserable and boring in this book ; not wanting to sound mean , but you don't want to read a 'miserable' book where the 'character' moans and groans about everything. Yeah , the character has a hard time in certain parts of the book , but it's fiction - they can choose what happens in the book!
I also felt as though the book was just written so that they could say 'Look , Angel sold really well , here's another one....now give us your money and buy this one'. Just for the sake of it. After reading the first Angel , I had hoped that there would be another book , because I had enjoyed the first so much ( I read it so quickly , that I was gutted by the time I got to the end , and so wanted it to go on and on.....). The ending in the first book was reasonable , although Angel Uncovered is another story ; (literally) , I have never seen a book end with so many questions. I felt that the book had been rushed , and made me wander , did Katie even remember what the characters were really like in the last book before going ahead and writing this book (and also , changing the characters. What happened to Cal ? He changed so much in between the 'gap' between the two books!)
Having read Angel and Crystal , I kind of knew what to expect from this book , although I will admit I found it very hard to 'get into'. It took a while to get going and once it was off there was no stopping it as it came to a sudden end! The writing didn't flow as well and the events jumped from scene to scene. If there another book was to come after this one , then I would be a bit 'shall i or shan't i ?' about it , but I would be a lot happier if it answered the questions left behind in this one.
This is definately a girlie girl's book! If your into the whole 'Celebrity' and 'WAG' thing ; then you'll love this! It makes a perfect read whilst lounging by the pool or on the beach!
If your a fan of Katies and have read the other books , then you might be interested in this one! I thought that this book was ok , but I prefered the previous books! I certainly wouldn't read this book again ; once was enough for me. I could read Angel and Crystal over and over again , but this one , no thank you.
Thanks for reading!
This is the type of book that is very easy to follow with a nice and light plot it doesn't require a lot of effort to read.
The story carries on from Katie Price's first "Angel" novel. The story starts off on a chat show, where Angel reflects upon her life in the past couple of years. She's married her sweetheart and famous footballer, Cal and together they have a perfect daughter, Honey.
Life, for Angel, couldn't be any more perfect. Yet she has major uncertainties about herself, her abilities and her confidence has taken an all time low. I've been there so many times and could relate. Especially as I had a baby in 2010 and have felt some of the pangs, doubts and heart aches felt by Angel.
Some secrets that Cal has kept from Angel suddenly become uncovered - and after Cal accuses Angel of sleeping with The LA Hunk in the story, she tries to take her own life.
I feel that these are issues that are still a little of a taboo topic and they were dealt with very sensitively - it was apparent that even though Katie Price hadn't written the novel herself that she could put her own life experience into the book.
Overall this was a nice escapist novel. I got to escape to Celebland and glimpse a little into what life would be like as a famous person - more so a famous glamour model. I felt Angel's pain when she was dealing with the catty AC Milan wags because I'm sure every girl can relate to a bitchy bunch of women at some point in their lives.
There are a few plot twists and turns that are a tiny bit predictable but overall this is a girly and fun read. I found that the first book was quite light hearted whereas this book was dealing more with serious issues; Post Natal Depression, the breakdown of a marriage, first baby and a suicide attempt. The tone of the book wasn't depressing, in fact I found that this book actually showed a lot more promise and left open for a sequel than the last Angel book in the series.
I would suggest taking this book on holiday with you and reading it by the pool as like me you'll probably be sucked in from the start and finish it within days - I read this book all night and was finished with it, I enjoyed it that much.
This is the second book in Katie Price's Angel Trilogy. I would highly recommend reading the first book Angel first, as this most definetly is not a stand alone piece, otherwise you would be lost with this story.
Angel Summer's has everything she ever wanted, but being crippled with Post Natal depression, that she will not confide in anyone about, risks ruining everything she has worked so hard to get.
Just when Angel begins to get her life back on track, a bombshell is dropped by her husband Cal. Can they ever find a way to come back from it?
A great read throughout, but with a surprising twist for an ending, although the ending will no doubt leave you screaming NO, as it did me.
Every page leaves you wanting more, and this once again is written in a great style of narrative. The plot line is extremly fluid, and is grammatically perfect throughout.
Again this is a mainly aimed at a teen audience, but a great read, for any broad-minded adult...
All in all, an excellent read.
Angel Uncovered - Katie Price
An amazing follow up to the first book Angel with plenty of twists, turns and heartbreak.
Angle and Cal, Top Glamour Model and World Class International Footbller, are now Married and have a beautiful daughter Honey. Cal has been transferred from the UK to Italy to play for AC Milan and Angel has not yet moved with him causing a lot of arguments and hurdles that they need to get over.
Angel is suffering with the stress of Post-Natal Depression and Cal the stress of the advancing of the World Cup Squad being selected so the distance between them is not an advantage.
Through to emotional pressure from Cal, Angel and Honey uproot and move to Italy to be with Cal. As Angel initially thought, she is not happy with the life over there, the shopping, calls manner and mood and especially not with Flavia, the sexy wife of Cal's pervy team-mate.
Affairs, Post-Natal Depression and a Shock ending!!!!
I originally bought this book from Asda as I think that on the highstreet they have the best price for books, and since purchaced I have hardly put it down and have read it over and over, partially because I adore the book and partially I am hoping that this time I read it the ending might have changed!!!
Must read as are all the other books in the series
Now I don't really have a particular 'type' of book that I like to read as I am happy to read whatever is lying around and I generally find myself getting engrossed in most types of books just a few pages in. I received Katie Price 'Angel Uncovered' as a Christmas present and it was something that I knew would not be my first choice but I was still grateful as I really will read anything.
Appearance: The book has a nice feel to it, the version I have received is a hardback one. The front cover of the hardback is nice & glossy and has quite an expensive feel to it. There is a picture of a model and some paparazzi and they appear to be jumping off the page. The book is fairly eye catching on the shelf without having garish colours or pictures.
Plot: This book is centred around Angel Summer, a glamour model, who is married to Cal, a footballer and Angel, while she may not admit it, generally lives the life of a WAG and is a mother to Honey, their beautiful baby girl. The book centres around their life as they live in England & Italy and have to deal with ups & downs of marriage as Cal is busy working in Italy and awaiting selection for the England World Cup team. The book has lots of glamorous references to fictional celebrities and designer brands.
My Opinion: This book feels quite substantial in size but actually only contains 326 pages so was small enough for me to read through in just a few hours over a couple of evenings. The book is broken up fairly well in to digestible chapters so that I was able to just pick up where I had left off and enjoy one or two chapters if I just wanted a nice break. The storyline was a little slow to begin with but I did find myself getting engrossed in the pages and thoroughly enjoying the story, wanting it to hurry up yet not wanting to reach the end of the book at the same time. There were some good characters in the book and I did kind of feel like I was getting an insight in to the celebrity world, although, if being totally honest, I don't feel like Katie Price had wrote the book herself as it just did not seem like there was any of her personality in the book. While one of the characters did seem to be loosely based on Katie Price the similarities were not too strong and this meant that I felt like I was learning about a new character which was enjoyable. The main downside to this book, for me, was that the storyline was building up towards it's finish for quite a number of pages and then the end came very abruptly and it was just one or two sentences and the whole mystery of the book was over and the storyline was finished. This was quite disappointing for me as it had been building up for so long that I wanted to know just a little more about what happened after the end of the book. I did feel like I had been cheated a little bit and another chapter would have helped to complete the book so much better and wouldn't have left me feeling like there was so much unsaid.
Overall this book is a middle of the road kind of book for me and while I don't think this is a keeper for me I wouldn't hesitate to read it again in the future, perhaps as a nice relaxing beach read. The book was fairly easy reading and was not particularly heavy at all although it was a tad addictive (how I find most books!) and I just could not wait to get in from work and have a little read before bed. The appearance of the book is fairly eye catching without being too outlandish and like all hardback books I really enjoyed the feel while I was reading it.
When I initially read this book I was not away that it was designed as a follow up to 'Angel' and I do think that this book works very well as a stand alone book so I wasn't worried afterwards that I had not read Angel, although I suppose that this should be the natural order of things!
Number Of Pages: 326
Number Of Chapters: 15
Wow what a difference and a fantastic follow on from Angel!
Angel Uncovered really shows a turn in Angel's life from being happily married with a young daughter to all of a sudden being faced with an unhappy cheating husband! And on top of that being really hated by Cal (Angels husband) football teams wives! It doesn't seem like Angel will ever find happiness with once again all the scandals of her life being published for all the world to see! Will Angel forgive Cal or will see find her new Mr Right?
Well I guess you'll have to read this book and find out! I never expected the outcome this book gave and once again it finishes on a real cliff hanger! I can't wait for Katie to release the next book that if there is a next one!
Once again a real gripping book showing the highlights and downsides of fame and marriage! A real page turner right from the first word. You will not be disappointed as nothing is kept secret in this novel another fantastic book by Katie!
Angel uncovered is not an overly long book but it is not a short one either and you won't realise how quickly you finish reading as you pay no attention to how many pages you get through you just want to know more and more!
Great summer read a huge must!
I would recommend any one who read Angel will definitely want to read Angel Uncovered! It's a must have!
I recently read Sapphire, and was curious about the rest of Katie Price's books, namely the Angel series. The reviews online were mixed, so I didn't entirely know what to expect.
The book is the sequel to the original, and continues to follow Angel, a glamour model who has married the love of her life, footballing star Cal. She's recently had a baby girl, and feels on top of the world! We all know it can't stay perfect, however, and the fairytale begins to unravel when Cal is sold to AC Milan, and the couple move there.
Angel feels lost in this new city, far away from both her friends and family, and from her successful career. Cal, however, fits in perfectly, and Angel finds herself home alone every evening as he parties with his new friends. Katie describes how both feel brilliantly, and you'll find yourself torn between wanting her to stay with Cal and try to fit in, and begging her to go home to her cosy life in England.
The book gets more exciting as both Cal and Angel are tempted by others, and has some raunchy moments, until Cal's ex comes back on the scene. With Angel feeling rubbish and moping at home, will Cal be tempted by his glamorous and fun ex, or will he remember who he really loves?
I read this straight after the original, and found I'd finished it within hours. Katie does an excellent job of building how you feel with the characters, and you'll find yourself debating who is actually in the wrong. A brilliant book!
This book is so unbelievably, screamingly, achingly TERRIBLE that if you're used to reading good novels, it will probably make you want to gouge your eyes out with horror. In fact, so great are the levels of dreadfulness that it achieves, that it transcends its awfulness and becomes (unintentionally) hilarious.
The thing that first strikes you is Katie Price's amazing imagination. She really goes to town to imagine a life different from her own, showing her deep empathy and compassion for other people. Her heroine, Angel, is - guess what - a glamour model! Her life involves posing for lad's mags and tabloids. She's married to a celebrity (a footballer, Cal) with whom she has a young child, Honey. However, they are having some relationship issues due to post-natal depression - gasp!-, an experience which is described with all the finesse of a dying pigeon waddling in the gutter.
The pantomime-like characters in the book fall into three categories: Angel's adoring entourage (cheer!), bitchy designer-clad WAGs who are jealous of Angel's beauty (boo, hiss!), and hunky men ready to throw themselves at Angel's feel (phwoar!). The story - if it can be called a story - revolves around shopping, texting, clubbing and hot tubs. There are a couple of amusing moments where Katie attempts to describe emotional scenes, including one where Angel gets a bit upset and decides to kill herself, and these are described with all the finesse of a rampaging buffalo in a china shop. (In case you were hoping, I'm sorry to say that our heroine does not succeed in her attempt, and lives on to tell yet more godawful tales). Zola it ain't.
You wouldn't expect Katie Price to be a Jane Austen of prose - and, guess what, she's not. Sentences are bare, and most of the big words are brand names. There are amusing moments where Jordan just gets words wrong, for instance when Angel's adoring gay hairdresser tells her he'd bang her if he wasn't a 'homosexualist'! It's like reading a Janet and John book crossed with Now magazine.
However, even in the 'so bad it's good' stakes, this starts to wear thin pretty quickly. The book is around 400 pages long, and even my admiration for the awfulness was fading by the half way point. By two thirds of the way through, I would rather have indulged in self-mutilation than continued. Jilly Cooper offers much more fun silliness, if you want to read fluff.
I absolutely loved this book from the first page 'till the last. The end will leave your jaw hanging for days. A very impressive novel with suspence, drama, real life situations, mystery and pure bitchiness. A great read for women 16+
It may be a little much for those under 16 as it contains sexual refrences and description.
When i read it, i found it hard to put the book down and found myself reading for hours on end. You get lost in the book and it's a great read to pass on to your girlfriends.
Age: 16 over.
Price:Roughly £6 or more depending on where you get it from.
A great summer read that will drive you absolutely wild. A great present for any women. If you liked Angel you'll absolutely fall in love with angel uncovered.
I absolutely adored this book and so did my two sisters.
I recently purchased this book as a holiday read from Asda as it was in the 2 books for 7 pounds offer. I have previously read the prequal to this book 'Angel' and so decided to give this one a go.
Angel Uncovered is about a girl called Angel who is a famous glamour model. In the book 'Angel' she was just starting out on her career and managed to get herself in some sticky situations with men and drugs. She managed to get through it all though and in the end got together with family friend Cal, who was an up and coming footballer.
In Angel Uncovered we find Angel married to Cal with a baby called Honey. She is living the high life with a lovely house, a beautiful family but somehow she is just not happy with it all. Cal is becoming more and more distant from her and she has a lot of problems that she wants to share with him but just can't. Cal has problems of his own with trying to get picked for the world cup team while have a persistant knee problem. When Cal gets transferred to Milan, it seems to make the situation worst. Angel doesn't want to move away from her family and friends to a place where she doesn't know anyone and will be all alone with her problems. Little does she know that the worst is yet to come.
When you read this book you can see Katie Price's influence throughout. If you have read her autobiography a lot of the elements of her own life seem to come through. There is the obvious, that the main character is a glamour model but also when the character does photo shoots for example this seems like it came straight out of her autobiography.
The character Angel is an interesting character. She is by no means an 'angel' really but you can tell she is a nice girl and just has quite a lot of problems. You do start to sympathise with her as you realise all the things she is having to deal with.
I personally quite liked the fact that the book had quite a lot of WAG characters in it and how she was going against the norm of these. We read about WAGS every day in magazines etc but it can be quite funny to almost make fun of them in a book like this.
The England football team element was also quite fun. The team all had different names but you could tell where the ideas came from for the various players that had parts in the story. If you have read Katies Autobiography you would see about her encounters with David and Victoria Beckham and i think a couple of the characters are definitely based on these two.
The characters on the whole had different elements to them which is what makes a good story and they all worked together well.
The storyline itself is quite good and does keep you gripped as you wonder what will happen next. It also manages to get some important issues in there including post natal depression. It isn't an overly deep storyline though and although bad things to happen to Angel, it isn't exactly deeply intense. I like the way that there were some smaller storylines weaved in as well involving her friends. This was a nice distraction from the main story at times.
The book isn't too long and it didn't take me long to read it on holiday. It was a good holiday read though as it wan't too intense. I wouldn't say that Katie Price, or whoever actually wrote the book, is the best writer in the world but it was an anjoyable read and I would read more books of hers when they get released.
Also posted on Ciao.
The newest Katie Price book. The cover is just as glamorous and eye catching as the rest of her books. It is a follow on to her first book Angel.
I was so excited when I heard this was coming out, I loved the first one and couldn't believe she had written a follow on from it. With your typical happy ending on the first one I was looking forward to reading blissful life of a normal couple in the limelight. Unfortunately this didn't happen.
Reading the book I began to realise the book was quite an unhappy story about how life as a celebrity couple can be hard work, it was interesting to read how life can really be like and it's not as fun as so many people believe. Also with the problems of couples having to live away from each other or up-rooting from their home and their family, it's a difficult choice and I feel Katie did describe these feelings very well.
The book is sad and sometimes you really feel for the characters, I couldn't put the book down when I started to read it. I am not going to give the plot away but I will say I was so disappointed with the ending and I wished to a certain extent that I didn't read it because I really did feel for all the characters and the problems they had to deal with.
Katie Price really did grasp reality with this book and I am sure a lot of people famous and non famous will relate to the issues in this book. It feels so real and sometimes you really feel like you want to shake sense into the characters and tell them they are making the wrong choices.
Overall I am keeping my fingers crossed that she will bring out another Angel book to make all the wrongs and bad choices right, but maybe i'm a sucker for a happy ending and a fairytale life!! Katie is a fantastic author and these books are by far my favourite and I can't wait for another one to be written.
'Angel Uncovered' is the follow up to Katie Price's 2006 novel 'Angel' and the third of her best selling novels.
"Angel Summer looks as if she has found her happy ever after. She's married to the love of her life, sexy footballer Cal, they have a beautiful baby girl and Angel is Britain's top glamour model. But all is not as it seems and there is heartache in store. When Cal is transferred to AC Milan, Angel feels isolated being so far away from her family and friends instead of embracing the WAG lifestyle of designer shopping and pampering. Surrounded by beautiful people, will Angel and Cal pull together or will they turn elsewhere to seek comfort? Angel's worst nightmares come to life when an old flame of Cal's comes back on the scene and suddenly Angel is fighting to save her marriage, and herself."
Katie Price has used 'Angel Uncovered' to delve the readers into the world of celebrity but also into her life as again, as with her previous novels, it crosses over with Price's own life -- Post Natal Depression, Jealousy and Modelling.
This isn't as good as the first book about Angel though by all means it is just as addictive! I couldnt put it down and kept wanting to read more - i was hoping there would be more of a dimension to Angel but in this book she's mostly miserable and jealous and you can't really identify that well with her.
There's as much scandal as in the previous book and i found the first book was a lot more sympathetic to Angel as a character.
If you like Katie Price (or Rebecca Farnworth, the ghostwriters) previous books then you will enjoy this. it's a good girly read.
There is an open ending and so another book could be in the pipeline...but if you are fans of the books and the characters then you may find the ending disappointing and unexpected.
"Celebrity fans, want the perfect night in? Flick back those hair extensions, pull on the Juicy Couture trackie, then join Angel on her rocky ride to WAG central"

After waiting ages for katie price to release the book as a follow up of widely sucessfull angel,
I couldn't wait to put the kids to bed to start reading it
It started off great and i got stuck in unable to put it down, i love reading these kinds of books as it takes me to a fantasy world i can only dream about really- lavish lifestyles, being famous, having money etc etc
i think the book was written well and the wording was great too, the storyline however seemed to keep repeating itself and it felt as it the plot wasn't really going anywhere and how she kept referring to incidents that happened in her first book, there wsn't really any excited in the book bar from her secret romp with some american guy she met, the ending was a bit abrupt to and didn't leave much to the imagination i hope she releases another follow up soon so we know how it all tuned out
This book was a bit of a let down for me over all as it left too many gaps and seemed to finish abruptly.. presumeably so she can write more and continue the series but i didnt feel it flowed as well as the previous book 'Angel'. and if she doesnt coninue the series i think there will be alot of disapointment as she left it with too many questions unanswered.
The basic plot of the book is as follows - It begins with Angels dream wedding and the birth of angels daughter honey. She is one of the top celebs in the uk and her life seems perfect, however after her footballer husband gets signed to a.c milans football club, she has to leave her life behind.. its quite a hard book to get into however once her depression seems to clear up then it gets more interesting and enjoyable.
