This review is from: Remembering Selena: A Tribute In Pictures & Words / Recordando Selena: Un Tributo en Palabras y Fotos (English and Spanish Edition) (Paperback)
Remembering Selena/Recordando a Selena is a must-have for Selena's fans. It is filled with page after page of glossy photos of the fallen star. However, the superficiality of the book destins it to become a dust-collector on coffee tables everywhere. I haven't opened my copy of the book in a few years. Simply stated, there's nothing in it to capture my interest -- no fascinating stories or new information regarding the singer. Selena's story ran deeper than this glossy P.R. tool would allow one to believe. Buy it for the pictures, but don't buy it if you want to know more about Selena. Selena - Como la Flor, by Joe Nick Patoski; and Selena's Secret, by Maria Celest Arraras, are more interesting reads if you want more than just a shallow look into the life of one of Tejano music's greatest performers.
