Unlike her daughter's book, the writing in her book is not polished, just like she wrote what she said. The part I remember most is that she has a relative working for Michael in the Dangerous Tour. That man is someone like a carpenter, responsible to build the stage. He told us some interesting side stories of the Tour. That part I did not find quoted in any other books.
Katherine is a great woman, rearing so many children with music talent, keeping in mind she has such a nasty husband. Some people may critiise her not protecting her children enough. But as a mother myself, I understand the delimma a mother is facing acting in between the husband and the kids. Afterall a woman has to be very strong and tough in case your husband is always thinking of himself rather than the kids. Chinese has a saying ' the Greatest Love comes from the Mother (not a father) '. This is so true in her family.
It took me a couple days because it started off very slow. It didn't get quite interesting until the family moved to California.
It was very positive and it was nice of Katherine to speak about each child, their personalities, hobbies, interests etc.
It was very refreshing compared to the negative press that surrounds the family.
Although it is a bit sugarcoated, and she left out alot of details that the movie, and other children speak about, it really showed a mothers view of the family. She knows them all best.
I was literally lol@ the parts about Michael and his weird tastes and excitement he found in things we are fearful of today. He was definately very humorous. Janet was always laid back and easy going, and Latoya:Prissy. Rebbie was the mother of the group. and of course the boys focus and interest was their music.
It was nice for different members of the family to include their input in the book as well. It would be nice if Katherine would release another book soon, and update us on the past few years.
Katherine was definately her childrens biggest fans, and that I found to be very sweet and supporting. Even at the age of 60 she spoke about being on the road with Janet, and still managing to get into the show like a 20 yr old would.
It is indeed a great read if you don't know much about the family and would like more information.
