      Ok, so where do I start I recently watched Amy, the Oscar winning documentary about Amy Winehouse, which comes from the same team behind the critically acclaimed documentary about Ayrton Senna It certainly made me feel nostalgic Whether you re a fan or not, you can t deny that Amy was a one of a kind talent She had the best voice I d ever heard Let s face it, music sucks nowadays I often say I was born too late I grew up in the era of Backstreet Boys, Spice Girls, Britney Spears and Christina Ag [...]

      I had a lot of preconceptions before buying this book none of them were true I thought Mitch Winehouse must have been a neglectful parent, ignorant of his daughter s addiction I thought Amy Winehouse went on a downward spiral with little if any progress toward recovery After reading the length to which Mitch Winehouse went, and the dedication he had time and time again to rehabilitate his struggling daughter, I must admit I was very wrong The media painted a picture of someone that many like me [...]

    3. Laurenemque says:

      Mitch doesn t really explain why Amy couldn t let go of Blake, drugs, or booze It got kinda exhausting and repetitive reading about every coked out or drunk episode It must be a sketch of how exhausting it was to deal with an addict you love in real life.The way Mitch went on and on about his daughter s looks sex life i.e her boob job how great her figure looked at the bar gushing over her island look of a bra and short shorts who she was sleeping with also felt very creepy I understand she was [...]

    4. Seymour Glass says:

      I read this in a matter of hours because it is written in a very readable style and, being a huge fan of Amy, I was than familiar with the narrative I m glad I read it because it did clear up some inaccuracies that had been reported in the press but Mitch does seem to contradict himself several times and the very fact that he s her father makes him an unreliable narrator.I d always felt that the people around Amy should have done to help her and this book has convinced me that a lot was being [...]

    5. Jo says:

      The small detail that sticks with me the most is that in the last few months of Amy s life, her CDs were alphabetized perfectly I d written off those days as a greyed out drug abyss, but reality was much complicated Mitch admits in the opening lines that this is not exactly an ideal book to be writing, and fair enough, mate I always dread dragged out childhood sections in biographies so I was pleased to find the Frank sessions beginning by page 36, but of course in this case it means we re in f [...]

      From my blog bookgirl1987thoughts.wordpresWell, this one is tough to review I had high hopes for this memoir by Mitch Winehouse, and I was looking forward to writing a positive review I appreciate the heartfelt message that Winehouse was trying to convey in writing this book It s very clear that he loved his daughter and would stop at nothing to help her get sober off alcohol and stay clean off drugs However, the book was so exhaustingly written that I wanted it to end at the half way point.Wit [...]

    7. Christy Wilson says:

      I rarely tend to seek out biographies, however in the past years I ve become borderline obsessed with this voice this voice that was is capable of breaking any emotionally stable person down within seconds Never do I follow those in the entertainment industry, but I became so mesmerized with, not only the voice of this angel, but ,also, the punch in your face of raw, beautiful yet, sometimes ugly emotions she revealed and shared with the world through her amazing gift of a voice Was she consider [...]

    8. Janine says:

      Though I would like to think of myself as an Amy Winehouse fan I borderline hated this book It s not so much an Amy biography as it is her father, Mitch Winehouse s, memoir about her life I have to give him some leeway because obviously, he isn t a professional author or biographer but his descriptions are vague and repetitive and half way through the book I began questioning his veracity He contradicts himself numerous times throughout the text and at other times seems totally oblivious or just [...]

    9. Anne says:

      It was not well written, but this probably made it authentic as the book was written by her father who is a cab driver I had hoped that there would be about her talent as an artist, but most of the book was about Amy s drinking and bad behavior It became tedious about half way through the book and I couldn t wait for it to end Amy is drunk she s sober she s checked in to the London clinic she s late she s drunk she s sober etc It s clear that she was close to her father.

    10. Belinda says:

      Well, I will start this review out by saying that I am an avowed Amy fan Since the moment I laid eyes and ears on her she s been a part of my life Her music speaks to me as does her style and her love of mixing retro with current music fashion I ve been a fan all the way through her life I was extremely eager to read this book, knowing it would have the most truth having come from her beloved father and friend I received the book as a gift the night before last I knew I would have to wait until [...]

    11. Alex Jackman says:

      In Amy, My Daughter, Mitch Winehouse tells a heartbreaking story of family, fame, talent and tragedy The book really allows you to get to know the girl behind the high beehive and the thick eyeliner.The book details the memorable moments from Amy s childhood, her constant changes of schools, her rise to stardom with Frank, her introduction to future husband Blake Fielder Civil and, subsequently, her introduction to Class A drugs And this is where the majority of the book lies Less of a music bio [...]

    12. Bianca says:

      To me, Amy Winehouse was just a singer I loved her music, but all I really knew was that she had a ton of tattoos, was a drug addict, an alcoholic, and a British Jew When I was wandering through the shelves of Barnes Noble, I caught a glimpse of the cover It was a beautiful photograph of her She seemed soher I bought it, and started it immediately My mother and father told me it wasn t age appropriate, so I decided to continue reading it discreetly It was so intriguing The best part was, it was [...]

      Ayer vi Amy y me acord de cu nto amo y extra o a Amy Winehouse y de lo necesaria que es una artista como ella en sta poca musical Todav a no termino de leer este libro en particular llegu hasta donde empieza a hablar de Blake y par Mucho me hace acordar a la desesperaci n de Deborah Spungen con su hija Nancy en And I don t want to live this life Que tu hijo a se meta en una relaci n destructiva tiene que ser una de las peores pesadillas de un padre madre Por ahora, prefiero dejar un link para qu [...]

      SO SAD Reading about Amy s life is a both sad and highly frustrating.First, this book is written by Amy s dad, and as such, I looked at it in two ways 1 He was the closest person to Amy, and therefor, very reliable source of information about anything regarding Amy.2 Mitch Winehouse was such a loving and devoted dad, that I don t know how true his perspective is.Amy had a, mostly, happy childhood She was clever, friendly, lovable, and highly talented.Her family was close, like a lot of Jewish fa [...]

    15. False says:

      You question why someone would even write such a book, but as a grieving parent with many fingers pointed at him over time, I suppose he wanted to set the record straight on what he did or did not do, based on his own perceptions I still say, given the severity of this woman s addictions he could have gone to court, declared her incompetent and locked her down If you read her history, as you will in this book, I didn t get the sense the parents ever put checks on her behavior, even as a small, d [...]

    16. Sandra says:

      This book was pretty terrible I hardly ever give a book 1 star but Oy vey what a bunch of crap.A weird dichotomy of TMI re sexy underwear purchasing and period details from a father about his daughter creepy and repetitive non information like Amy was acting tipsy or whatever.Can you say co dependent

    17. Shazia says:

      Yeah, I could not do it It s good for the pictures and some of the stories of her childhood are cute but this book is like a run on sentence There are no connections between one paragraph to another It seems like he just typed the thoughts that came into his head and no one arranged it to make it flow better The editor or ghost writer failed.

    18. Liz Engstrom says:

      Love Amy Winehouse s music didn t love this biography memoir Boring and poorly written I only finished it because my students are reading memoirs biographies autobiographies, and I needed a similar sample to model with for them.

    19. Malcolm says:

      This book adds little to understanding the woman who changed contemporary music with her voice and phrasing I think the only true insight I got out of the book was that she could only write music when she was unhappy Repetitive and one note throughout.

    20. Jenn Thompson says:

      Very tragic story But too repetitive and exhausting The drunkalog could have been summed up in far fewer pages My heart breaks for Amy s dad and family, but this book is far too one sided Mostly disturbing to hear that so many friends were around her that were so incredibly toxic.

    21. Josh Boardman says:

      Dear god, I wouldn t have been able to get through this book if I weren t so obsessed with Amy Winehouse right now Her dad is an atrocious writer, he s very unperceptive, and I have a feeling he s a bit of a fame whore Not a good book, but the only one that s out right now, unfortunately.

    22. Debbie says:

      Geez, I thought this would be about Amy not her egomaniac father RIP Amy.

    23. Em says:

      This was a DNF for me It just felt all over the place, like his it was just a jumble of memories and nothing focused or driven that would give me any insight to Amy s life.

    24. Krysta says:

      Pure, unadulterated crap.

    25. Angel Roberto says:

      I couldn t finish this book It was badly written and I was very disappointed in it I was disappointed that I could not get into it

    26. Shanda says:

      I have been intrigued with Amy Winehouse ever since her father talked about her generosity after she passed away last year He was giving away Amy s belongings to fans that had thronged outside her London home after her death He said that Amy would want it that way This is a heartbreaking read about Amy s life and her battle with drugs and alcohol Told from her father s perspective, you watch him go from through hell and back trying to help her through different bouts of rehab, detoxing, hope tha [...]

    27. Louise says:

      This is a father s description of how his daughter s addictions spun her out of control No amount of love or caring could stop it The story behind the narrative is that addiction saps the life of the addict and everyone else around There is no normal in this only the near futile attempts to stop the addict.While the public knows of her exceptional talent, they might not have known of her generosity Amy committed to an operation for a stranger in St Lucia and unlimited horse to rides for kids Her [...]

    28. Ruby says:

      After reading this book, I have developed a whole new sense of respect for artists What I had to keep reminding myself throughout the book, was that her father wrote the book Incredibly inspiring Especially as a parent who witnesses first hand substance abuse, the incredible strength Mitch must have had to endure all this under the public eye I m not a very good reviewer so I ll go straight to the point, it may seem that some chapters go in circles You ll know what I mean around the time she has [...]

    29. Mika Harjula says:

      So Mitch Winehouse set the write a book about his late daughter Amy Winehouse and made a few dollars of it I read this two or three years ago and wouldn t even remember the whole read if it wasn t for Donald Trump s very odd remarks about dating someone like his own daughter a while ago, just like Mr Winehouse s and his own remarks about his daughter Creep Alert No, No, No
