11 of 11 people found the following review helpful By Matthew Buckley-Golder on May 10, 2010
Format: Paperback
I came to this book as rather indifferent to Britney Spears, but with an interest in finding out about her story, having only been exposed to the most extreme gossip about her that got beyond the tabloids and made it into mainstream newspapers. I don't own any of her albums.

The book is most heavily focused on the earlier parts of her career and spends the most time there. The later years of her career are breezed through, but all of the highlights I remember hearing about on the radio from time to time were touched upon.

The book paints a sympathetic but seemingly-honest account of most events. It doesn't absolve her of blame but presents the environment and context in which certain events occurred, which was always missing from the sensationalist reports.

Some parts of the book were a bit thin, but I think this was done to mostly stick to the facts and what is known and to not indulge in too much speculation.

As another reviewer mentioned, this book turned me into a fan to some degree -- of the hard work, determination, and focus. It also made me somewhat sympathetic toward her situation and, while I can't understand her decisions, I can at least come to the conclusion that maybe I don't know enough about the psychology of the situation to empathize.

The book also provides yet another account of how fame and success can attract the wrong people to your vicinity, and how a voracious media can strip you of your privacy and deliberately seek to represent you as they want to and not in accordance with the truth of things.

Format: Paperback
Britney Spears
Little Girl Lost
By Christopher Heard
ISBN: 978-1-926-745-02-2

It's very easy in life to have a preconceived notion about another human being; especially the able bodies who are constantly splashed across every tabloid magazine that's lining the check-out aisles. We either: A) Purchase the magazine eager to read the (usually false) information, and declare in as loud a voice as possible that we only buy it for the crossword puzzle; or, B) We put our noses in the air, "tsk-tsk" about the ridiculousness of these so-called "stars'" lives, and declare very loudly that we pray to God our child doesn't become an idiot like them. I am...just as human as the next person in line. Even though we all preach that we must keep an open mind, the constant bombardment of reality television, Entertainment Tonight happenings, and the myriad of magazines that offer this low-brow gossip takes us in until we choke on the so-called news.

I'm also a huge fan of this author. I've read Mr. Heard's other biographies and he has taught me a great deal about keeping an open mind and how the "star machine" has rolled over some of the kindest people in America, who are just looking for a little bit of help. Unfortunately, they are also in charge of keeping the "gravy chain" running along for all the people in their lives who sponge off their fame. Britney is no different, except for the very real fact that this was a little girl who simply wanted to achieve a dream - not unlike all of our own daughters, including mine.

The beginning is simply a story about a young family who work hard in their small town of McComb, Louisiana. Mom Spears is a stunning woman, who most people in town thought could make it in the movies because she was just that good-looking.

I loved this book! it gives you an indepth look into britney's life. Especially the parts about her suffering with anxiety disorders and what not because it made her a person. I suffer with an anxiety disorder and i related to her in that sense. I feel sorry for her, what with all the things shes gone through. You cant blame her for going off the deep end. Im glad shes back on track now.
