This book is a fantastic account of Susan Boyle's less than mundane life turned astonishing in a matter of hours. Her biography takes a detailed look at her unsuspected fairy-tale from the humble roots of her Scottish village to SuBo mania and her visit to America.

What I really enjoyed about this book was the intimate glances of Susan Boyle, the ordinary woman--the views of the 48 year old on the road, going through a make over, publicly discussing her learning disabilities, interacting with celebrities, and recalling the pains of her childhood. Some of the moments so eloquently described by the writer sent chills down my spine similar to those from when I first watched her video on youtube.

Although this is a biography, it reads like a non-fiction fairy tale. Boyle is a real-life Cinderella. She 's lived the dream and stunned the world with her talent, and her story is a touching testament to the delicate power of the human spirit.

The English language is not adequate to describe Susan Boyle's voice and her first terrific album. This book tells the story behind her remarkable rise to stardom. Her angelic voice, discovered on Britain's Got Talent back last spring, is brought to perfection in her first album ranging from pop to religious to show tunes. Boyle's voice is superb--clear, controlled, beautifully projected and all around marvelous. It is nice to read something about her sheltered life as this bombshell hit. Her first album has set all kinds of sales records, and I for one, will buy any album she records in the future. Here's hoping we can see a long line of albums from this lovely lady of Scotland--maybe a collection of only show tunes like Memories, You'll Never Walk Alone, Climb Every Mountain, Some Enchanted Evening, the list goes on. Or, perhaps all religious selections such as Ave Maria, The Lord's Prayer, Panis Angelicus, Oh Divine Redeemer. Anything she sings is bound to be a treat. Her road has not been easy and this book tells it as it was, and is. It is a heart warming story to realize not only does Susan possess a voice out of this world as in angelic, but she is realizing the dream of achieving her life-long ambition of singing to the world. Her life has been truly remarkable, and this book explores beyond the shallow scandal sheets and hot type headlines.
Never let them get you down, Susan, Brava, Sing on forever.

Received this order today. Read the Prologue. I can tell it is going to be a great book. The book is in new condition and was well packed. I have recently turned into a rabid Susan Boyle fan. I have her first CD and listen to it over and over. I am also intrigued by her background and what she has accomplished and what has happened to her in such a short period of time and is richly deserved. As a retired psychiatric social worker I feel she is handling all the wonderful but stressful things fame is bringing to her with grace and much inner strength and humility, even though she has "those times". I can only hope she is in concert at some time within traveling distance from Nashville, TN.

Susan Boyle: Dreams Can Come True offers the first biography of the singing star who provided an eye-opening performance in last year's 'Britain's Got Talent' competition, and is a pick for any general lending library, especially those strong in popular music. Her story charts her Scottish roots and the events and people that led to her development. Singing has always been her passion: this tells how her passion evolved. An inspirational, vivid story.

Good book except the author repeats words and phrases and the book is somewhat boring in that respect.
Other books on Susan Boyle may be better!
