Comment: This book has already been well loved by someone else and that love shows. It MIGHT have highlighting, underlining, be missing a dust jacket, or SLIGHT water damage, but over-all itÂ's still a good book at a great price!

Editorial Reviews

Review

"2011 will be remembered as the year of Adele." —Anderson Cooper, 60 Minutes
 
"21 was the entertainment world's favorite story of 2011 . . . Adele is not rock-'n'-roll. She is not self-consciously retro. She does not shimmy or shake. Hers is a plant-the-feet-and-belt delivery that has all but disappeared from the pop landscape. It should be deeply uncool. And yet, there is something startlingly refreshing about her youthful elegance and commanding presence . . . Adele transcends all notions of hipness." —Vogue

The book was very interesting. It helps you to understand what a hard start Adele had in her life. It helps to understand
Her feelings after her tough life and also the words to her songs how deep her emotions are and what she has endured.

A nice read, with photos and good content. Because of her youth, it's understandable that the content isn't meaty, but I like the book.

This is one of MY FAVORITE Artist, I have been following her career since BEFORE her first appearance on the DAVID LETTERMAN show over 4 years ago. I wanted to see and learn what there was about her an her music I have yet to know. Looking forward to reading this book and comparing what it has to what I already know.

This is a wonderful way to get to know Adele, who is the best female singer I've heard in a very long time (I'm 62). I would recommend this biography to anyone who would like to get to know this talented young lady. The biographer did a wonderful job. I would also recommend her live concert at Albert Hall. I've watched it several times and it's the ultimate!
