4.0 étoiles sur 5 Funny and fun to read 19 novembre 2000
Par R.K.M. - Publié sur
Ya know, you have to take this book with a grain of salt. She is his ex-wife after all. But aside from the occasional "And did I mention this embarrasing sexual problem David has" and the long list of "But look at all the people who wanted to sleep with me!", this was a highly entertaining book. It was well written and witty. Who knows how many of the stories are true, although I have read other Bowie biographies and can confirm from other sources that a good many of them are. Also, it's nice to get the point of view of someone who was so close to it all. Go ahead and read this book. I recommend reading it in conjunction with a very thoroughly researched "Alias David Bowie" or some other such biography in addition. But this really was an enjoyable book. I intend to make several of my friends read it, just for pleasure although they have no particular interest in Bowie. It's just a fun read.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 An unusual tale about sex, drugs, and rock and roll! 2 août 1998
Par Un client - Publié sur
I am a David Bowie fan, and because of that, I became interested in this book. When I read this book, I couldn't put it down. Angela Bowie says it all, from the sweet begining of their relationship to the bitter downfall of their marriage. It's a very funny and twisted tale, but it's very strange. The book is mostly about her rather than David and I thought that was kind of interesting. What is also interesting is the fact that she also mentions other famous names in rock and roll like Mick Jagger, Keith Moon, as well as others. On the other hand, I honestly didn't believe in half of the things she said in this book. So therefore, I would highly recommend this book to anyone who loves music and gossip. David Bowie fans might also be interested as well. : )

5.0 étoiles sur 5 So what if Angela Bowie is bitter? Book's a lot of fun .... 13 septembre 2005

Why do some reviewers care whether Angela Bowie is "bitter?" Does she seem a little bitter? Yes, frequently. Um ... So?

Great stories in this book (my fave involves Led Zeppelin, who come across as average, rather loveable drunks), with an attempt by Bowie to exorcise a demon from a swimming pool running a close second.

A really enjoyable read ... A friend who's met Angela tells me she seemed kind of crazy, but I'd have to say she comes across as a very hurt, somewhat bitter person who also has a few cogent things to say. Take her with a grain of salt.

And all you people working so hard to knock this poor woman ... an average human who probably did indeed have an impact on Bowie's career, in the same way all magical things combine in places and in times to create a special chemistry -- what, are you secretly jealous you didn't marry Bowie or something? Let's hear it for pulling hair. Meow.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Too hilarious not to read... 5 avril 2010
Par Carrie McAllister - Publié sur
Honestly, after reading this I'm surprised the poor woman didn't permently wrench her shoulder patting herself on the back like this. According to this book, just about every idea that advanced David's career was thanks to Angie. She did all the work, from cooking and sewing, drawing his bath, hiring and firing his managers, booking clubs, etc. Really, whatever did David do? I'm surprised she doesn't take credit for writing the songs and music too. I kept waiting for it, since she takes credit for just about everything else. Okay, I admit I'm not a big fan of Angela Bowie. I'll be up front about that. Her brief appearance backstage in the Ziggy Stardust movie, with her fake British accent and little girl voice irritated me from the start. But I've read other Bowie biographies and wanted to know more about what was happaning in his personal life at the time, and I figured his at-the-time wife would know best, so I was willing to give her the benefit of the doubt. Nope. If that's what you're looking for, find another book. All this one does is tell you what Angie was doing, and frankly, according to the book, it was just about everything. Oh, and did you know that just about every major rock star of the era seems to have wanted to sleep with Angie too? My goodness, when did the poor woman have time to sleep? Frankly, the book is hilarious, but not in the way the author intended. If you want to crack yourself up reading a plethora of self-aggrandization, catty remarks and gossip without any proof besides Angie's opinion, than this is the book for you. I encourage you to read it aloud to your friends and family. I did and we all had a great laugh. But if you are really interested in David Bowie's life, you might want to pick another biography. David just doesn't seem to be in this one much.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Where The Bowies Are 29 mai 2007
Par Bradley F. Smith - Publié sur
If you never paid much attention to David Bowie - and I confess I did not - then this kiss and tell by his ex-wife may make trashy reading. She certainly takes you back to the late 60s-early 70s London music scene when creativity seemed to be bursting out all over. Theirs was a sort of marriage of convenience, in this version, with Angie a glorified go-fer, doing anything to promote Bowie's career. She makes him out a cold fish, which is certainly how he looks. Their 'open marriage' meant both were free to dally with whomever they wanted, and she says Bowie dallied with Mick Jagger at least once, gossip that made headlines years back. It seems plausible. This may be the "Angie" in the Stones song, she contends. Bowie's music always left me cold, though a few of his bigger hits have held up. This book is a trippy look back at a time now long gone, though you'll wish you could have at least observed it in full flower.
