I believe it's clear that this thread will only convey positive thoughts, opinions, discussion about the book. Probably best you scoot along....

If you go to the book page and click "Listen" you can hear a bit of Mayte reading a sample... I just did...sounds interesting.... I think she imply's that Appollonia is a name picked by Prince- (I always thought Appollonia was her given name) anyway... sounds good....

once I checked the post says we can discuss ANYTHING, EVERYTHING about the book. whats the point of having a book club if a person can't discuss their personal feelings towards a book. I'm not a mayte hater at all but this book... sad

We can discuss it, but we are going to be civil about it, and not like the other thread. We are going to go chapter by chapter. We are not going to call each other names, we are not going to degrade each other. This is about the book.

Me too. I want to really discuss this one. We all can read the same thing but we all have different takes on it. We are gonna pick the book apart. Sentence by sentence. biggrin

Oldfriends- was her middle name really Apollonia? Or did Prince pick this name out because of his love for Valentino?

Me too! Mine is still sitting in the "preparing to ship" queue. Might run into a book store while running errands today. I suppose I can send the Amazon copy back?

No I don't. I definately support this Org Book Club though. Will be cool to see it succeed.

Iā€™m embarrassed to say , not only did I buy the book, but downloaded the audible this morning.

If anybody has the chance, listen to the book being read by Mayte herself.

All I'm gonna say is she's TALENTED and I cried a little so far.

Peace

I just did the "look inside" feature since my book isn't here yet and (no spoilers) couldn't believe what he'd done to his house (won't elaborate) until we start discussing. sad ---- Wish my book would hurry up!

Read and finished today.

A spotted a couple inaccuracies with years as most Prince fans will.
All and all...I liked it. I knew P wasn't a saint and we all know he did her dirty at the end of their marriage. That's all I'll say for now. THIS IS NOT THE BOOK FOR YOU if you don't want to know some of his flaws. Period. This is not for the folks who swear he could do no wrong.
