    1. Why did she have to go soon? Amy Winehouse left us too early. I yearn for more of her music. She was such a special and dynamic person and I am glad Andy Morris decided to capture that in this new book celebrating her life and mourning her unexpected death. With 18 Chapters jam packed with no holds barred information on Amy, this is one tale of a musicians life that is hard to put down. The introduction by Christina Westover, the vintage Amy Winehouse pictures and riveting details into the final [...]

    2. I would like to thank First Reads for sending me this book! Thank you to the author for the signed copy!This is a captivating read about a young and tragic life, full of promise and talent.The writing was sharp, focused, with great sense of understanding. This book would appeal to anyone who wants to learn more about Amy Winehouse - or anyone looking for a deep, provoking read.

    3. This is the first book i won through a competition :D *very happy about it*Despite some editing mistakes and the very short paragraphs it was quite amuzing to read about Amy Winehouse.It never occurred to me that a self destructive/ depressive person could actually be aware of her qualities and potential, which is kinda stupid and unexpected coming from me, because i fit perfectly in the category. I think that if Amy had to die, it had to be at 27 now she became immortal. It is such a great los [...]

    4. I received this book from - thank you!This was a short but informative read which outlined the main events of Amy's life. The book was a good balance between pictures, facts and personal stories which added a rounded perspective of Amy's life. For me the book's downfall is that it lacked depth and it was more of an overview than a full account of her life, focusing on more of the pivotal/scandalous events. Nevertheless, anyone looking to read about Amy should have a look at this!

    5. Truly, woefully written, poorly (hastily? not at all?) edited, honestly, I'm embarrassed I've read it. Amy Winehouse was an amazing artist, a pure talent, a gift to history, a perfectionist. What a disappointing tribute to her, her legacy, and her legions of fans (myself included) who will be forever starved of her presence.

    6. Amy Winehouse was a fantastic singer, and I don't believe many people realized how much of a gift she really had, and how she could manipulate her voice with such raw, sensual soul. She passed away on my 27th birthday, so her death will always be memorable to me, but the music will continue to be influential. I'm looking forward to reading this work!

    7. Truly enjoyed this book. Not bias at all. I read the whole thing in one evening, so its a quick read, but informative.I have always been curious about Amy Whinehouse and it is such a shame that her life had to end so soon. Poor thing - she just needed love.Read it - its a good book.

    8. it is really great to read this book, it gets you deeply into the story of this incredible voice, you'll be really missed Amy. RIP

    9. This was a short but interesting insight into Amy Winehouse, her life and her death. Some of the spelling and grammar is poor but it kept me captivated for two hours.
