Life with my sister Madonna

Life with My Sister Madonna By Christopher Ciccone, Wendy Leigh - -Author-

Much to my suprise, I really liked this book. I thought that it would be a bit beyond me, because the peak of Madonnas career was before my time, but I understood it & recognised the people.


I don't think that Christopher is a natural writer, but it was still a good story, & a solid effort. I feel sad for him, because Madonna was quite obviously taking advantage of him for all those years. I think it got to the point where she was so famous that she knew she could get away with it.


I noticed that quite a lot in the book the wrong tense are being used. Christopher will quite often flick between past & present tense. I'm suprised that his editor didn't pick up on it, because it is one of the first things I was taught at Creative Writing.


Madonna does seem like a selfish woman in this book, & I'm not sure how Christopher thought that publishing it would help his relationship with her. He obviously wants to repair the rift, but Madonna will (understandably) not trust him anymore & be annoyed about him airing his grievances in public.


Overall, a really interesting book that I would recommend to Madonna fans.
