Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Adult performer HOUSTON has enjoyed a wild and racy ride in both the porn industry and her fast-track personal life over the past 15 years, and her hard partying ways have paid off, earning her a reputation as one of the most popular, culturally groundbreaking and highest-paid adult actresses of all time. The granddaughter of a prominent Disney animator, HOUSTON has a vibrant, animated exuberance about her as well, which has made her one of Howard Stern's best and beloved recurring radio guests ever. Infamously taking her sexuality to the extreme in 1999's best-selling and award winning- Worlds Biggest Gangbang 3: The Houston 500/620, HOUSTON not only set a Guinness World Record, but a notoriety that brought her an unprecedented amount of mainstream attention, career opportunities and high-profile Hollywood lovers.

I started reading one night, and finished it in the morning. Literally couldn't put it down. It's funny at times, insightful, tells you a lot about people and how they can behave when drugs and life's stresses are added into the mix. It's also a very inspirational story; the story of someone who has experienced tremendous highs followed by equally bad lows, and refuses to give up.
I highly recommend this to anyone recovering from something, be it drugs or a relationship or a porn career (not that there's anything bad in doing porn, but it can be exhausting in more ways than one, as you'll find out in this book).

This is the rare book where your're enthralled from the first page, you can't put it down, and sad when you're nearing the end. It's so well written, honest, funny, and very moving through the up's and downs. Takes a couragous person to share such intimate details of her life! I applaud you, and wish you the very best in the future! Buy this book, you won't regret it!

Format: Paperback
THIS BOOK SHOULD SATISFY A READER ON ALL LEVELS 18 AND UP... SAVE FOR KIDS UNTIL THEY MAY ENJOY LATER! THE AUTHOR IS "FILTER FREE" PURE HONEST.... NOT THE USUAL BIOGRAPHY THAT THE PERSON IS "ALWAYS CORRECT"!! IT YES TITILLATES BUT CAN BE VERY TOUCHING!! MUCH AS HER GRANDFATHER LEARNED AS A WORKER WITH WALT DISNEY.... "LAUGHTER AND A TEAR" // MAKES A GREAT STORY!!
IF YOU PUT AWAY JUST ALL PRECONCEPTIONS OF "HOUSTON" AS JUST A PORN STAR... AND SHE IS /WAS THAT...... THERE IS A MULTI FACETTED LIFE... "BEHIND THE SEEN'S"!! SHE WONT SUGARCOAT ANYTHING // BE IT GREAT TRIUMPHS OR BAD TIMES! SHE JUST KEEPS AT LIFE/ ENJOYING TO THE MAX THE WILD TIMES ... AND DARING LIFE OR PEOPLE TO "KEEP HER DOWN" WHEN THINGS GET HARDER!!
SHE IS A COMPLETE PERSON...... REAL AND COMPELLING! .... IT IS A FUN READ... MUCH LIKE A NOVEL AFTER A CHAPTER YOU CAN'T PUT DOWN.... AS YOU WANT TO SEE "WHAT HAPPENS NEXT"!!
SO GIVE IT A READ YOU WON'T BE DISAPPOINTED, JUST DON'T DO AS I DID.... SET IT DOWN IN A PLANE.... SOME PERSON TOOK IT!!// SUCH IS HER ALLURE//!! THANKFULLY I HAD FINISHED NIGHT BEFORE AND WAS JUST DOING A BRIEF "REVISIT... ON WAY HOME"!.... SO I'LL GET ANOTHER... IT'S THAT MUCH FUN!!

Pretty Enough is an almost complete (and the author acknowledges this) account of the life of Kim Halsey, better known as adult superstar Houston. It's a remarkable yet great biography and I would recommend it to anyone who likes a good read - especially to those who are not easily offended by explicit language and/or faint of heart. If you're one of them, you won't regret buying this book!

I have been a Houston fan for years, and I was interested to read about all the stuff you wouldn't see in the movies - plus a whole lot more.

It did not disappoint!

This book is a delightful account of Houston's up's and down's written in a brutally honest & simplistic manner. It is an endearing, heart-breaking and loving account of a determined woman who not only succeeded in the cut throat world of the Porn industry, but has also overcome adversity in her personal battles and continues to inspire.

After reading this I came away thinking I had just made a new friend.

10/10

OK, where to begin...Well, I will start with I have terrible ADD and it usually takes me months to get through a book and this was a record at only 2 days, I couldn't put it down and neither will you! That should say it all, but I will continue! Oh, I should also say I'm gay?...You ask, why would a gay man want to read about a porn queen? Well, I used to watch Howard Stern and would see "Houston" on quite a bit and she ALWAYS fascinated me! Especially when she was on to promote "The Houston 500"...growing up in a very conservative Christian family "my Mom still speaks in tongues, crazy...oops, not supposed to judge", I thought, WHAT?...Seriously, 500 men in 1 day?! And of course did what most Christians do best, and judged her, as if God needs any of my help! She always seemed really nice and kind and being so Hot, I would wonder why and how she got started in this industry. Well here you go, this book explains it all!
I love that there are several pages on her beliefs in God. As I've grown, I've pretty much forgone "organized religion" and have just become a spiritual person...I'm on my knees everyday praying...what can I say, it makes me feel good!! To be nice and kind and non judgmental is what's it's all about to me now. I think it's sort of the way Kim thinks? I just don't think God cares too much about sex and who you have it with.
Kim must be a pretty funny girl, because this book will have you laughing out loud many times! This book is so honest, that Kim can't possibly have even 1 skeleton in her closet...man, what would that be like?!! My only bummer in this book, is that I was hoping to read what her Mom, Dad, Grandparents and twin brother thought about her being "Houston" and there was nothing on that, except a small insert from her brother at the end...
Buy it, you will really enjoy it!!
