    One thought on “Pretty Good Years: A Biography of Tori Amos”

    1. To begin with, I felt bad reading a book that was not an authorized biography of Tori Amos, but it was bought for me as a gift, and so I read it I of course wondered what made the author qualified to write a book on Tori and discovered it was because he interviewed her in the early days That is it He interviewed her in about 1992 Other than that the entire book is based on a compilation of magazine articles and his own opinion I did appreciate having much of the information for the numerous arti [...]

    2. This is the best book on Tori s life that I have read so far, besides her own book of course I have read it several times and I just can t part with it Includes stunning photos from over the years This one will not disappoint Tori fans.

    3. Long have I waited to read a biography on my favorite musician, Tori Amos This book offers good facts but has a distant feel to the writing, contrary to the intimacy Amos embodies in her art I wish this telling of her story would be creative instead of a list of dates and quotes.

    4. Not entirely accurate or well written, but worth having and the obvious love the author has for Tori is endearing.

    5. I rarely say that I could write a particular book better than its author, because I know how hard it is to write a book However, I m certain that I could edit this book better There are numerous typos, run on sentences, and grammatical mistakes.You can tell that the author is a magazine writer His prose is quite lengthy and he editorializes The book is split into chapters loosely based on Tori s albums They begin with the author explaining what was going on in Tori s life at the time Then, he an [...]

    6. This would qualify as a up to date tell all of Tori Amos, my absolute favorite musician While it gives a lot of insight into Tori s career and life it, at times, completely ignores and fails to address aspects that she emphasizes on in her autobiography Tori Amos Piece by Piece, such as the awful battles with Atlantic Records she had in the late 90 s Also, the book lacks balance in its telling in that it provides a lot of detail on the early parts of her career, but as the book progresses on he [...]

    7. Definitely should be read along with Piece by Piece by Tori Amos and Ann powers This is a brief look at her life and career Although I do appreciate the bibliography and all the sources and materials at the end of the book.
