It’s romantic at times, simply in the personal and casual nature with which the book presents itself. You can imagine Malik spilling his life’s story to you at a barbecue, and the words seem pulling directly from his own thoughts. There's no ghostwriting here, and it's refreshing to see a celebrity's "personal account of their life" actually be their OWN personal account, and not an interviewer trying to hammer in the person's syntax in every sentence. These are Zayn's words, emphatic and innocent and so very relatable.
There’s not much sugar-coating, either. It’s honest and real, two things that Malik has professed to always striving for, and I must say he definitely succeeds. He details his struggles with an eating disorder, as well as crippling anxiety and self-doubt. It’s equal parts heart wrenching and hopeful. He vows to perform, vows to make his fans and his family proud, and you find yourself rooting for him to do just that. Though Malik pulls no punches, describing his feelings about lack of control in his life that led to his eating disorder, there’s a wistfulness to his words. Never cynical or even histrionic, but occasionally weathered after the vast amount of life he’s lived already, the book also serves as a true reminder that Malik is only twenty-two years old.Read more ›
In Zayn, he tells his side of the story. Zayn’s often talked about how the media and his former management have projected an image on him that he doesn’t deserve. And it’s true—Zayn became known, out of nowhere, as the “bad boy” of the group, the mysterious, private, brooding brown kid who was so different to his bubbly bandmates. Sure, from the exterior, the stereotype can be applied. Covered in tattoos with an unkempt beard and a sharp buzzcut, Zayn walks around in heavy boots, leather jackets, cigarette dangling from his mouth. But his book provides a very different side to him. Strip back the layer that’s been presented to you, and a charming young boy comes to the forefront.
What have I learned about Zayn after reading this book? That he loves his mother more than anything in the world, and constantly talks about her. He loves to read and write—every lyric he pens down means something to him. He likes to eat samosas, and can cook.Read more ›
Malik has the cool suave grooves of a Bryan Ferry crossed with the deep hipness of Maxwell. It would be cool if Zayn covered one of their songs! I bought this book today because I find Zayn has a charismatic style and is an intriguing artistic personality. I love his style, he's a charming person. I'm a creative person myself and I love the images I see of him. He's definitely photogenic, but Zayn transcends the typical "pop-ie" tweeny pics out there, his photographs are artisticly quirky which I think Zayn kinda is, too. He certainly breaks the mold, as any real artist does, not out of a conscious need to, but as a matter of existential being.
The book itself is very cool, structured but also laid-back. I like that it's like Zayn, 'eff' words strewn here and there, not watered down. If you love love his CD "MInd of Mine" and this book is a great way to better know the talented artist behind it. I can't to see and hear what's next from him.
