    Although, she has clearly been through brutal circumstances, I felt this book was beautifully honest. It felt like it came from a truly genuine place, rather than being a PR device. Mel B was (and still is!) Girl Power personified for me and many others - I have been a huge Spice Girls fan since I was seven years old (I am a lot older now...) - so I admit I am biased.

It felt like it came from a truly genuine place, rather than being a PR device. Mel B was (and still is!) Girl Power personified for me and many others - I have been a huge Spice Girls fan since I was seven years old (I am a lot older now...) - so I admit I am biased. But, as such a big fan, I didn't want to be disappointed whilst reading this. The thing I love about this book, is that Mel B's bright and brilliant personality shines out of it all the way through. She clearly went through a lot of shit and it's explained in detail, but in no way does that manage to overshadow all the other dazzling aspects of her personality. Like many women, she's been with a dickhead at some point in her life. And he took a lot from her. And like many women, she didn't see how bad it really was until it was far too late. But, she's taken that and turned it into something really positive, and it's hard not to respect someone who can pick themselves up and make good from the bad. It's so important that women write books like this, to remove stigma from the horrible violence some experience in their relationships, and to make others aware of the warning signs. It's informative, and explains the concepts of coercive control and gaslighting clearly and accessibly for anyone to understand. I can see this being an aid to those who read it. Aside from that, it's well-written, well-structured, and well-edited. The chapters written by Andrea and Phoenix were especially insightful, because they portrayed so perfectly how the traumatising effects of domestic violence reverberate into the lives of of children, parents, friends, siblings. I thought this book was amazing, on so many levels. It's full of life, in all its shades. And I am an even bigger Spice Girls fan after reading this, but now, for far more significant reasons.

    Brutally Raw What a gut wrenching book. I cried during most of it. Melanie packs a he'll of a story but it's been a hell of a life. This is a woman I admired and thought she had everything and the best of life. Truth shall set you free. Being a abused wife myself, I know all the signs so reliving that through this book was incredibly hard and there were times I had to put it down and stop. But I am thankful that she had the courage to get this done and start her life over and be the mom her child Brutally Raw What a gut wrenching book. I cried during most of it.

Being a abused wife myself, I know all the signs so reliving that through this book was incredibly hard and there were times I had to put it down and stop.

My heart, prayers and love to put to a remarkable woman who got sucked into a terrifying experience and was able to recover and come away with her life and love. There is a special place in hell for abusers and I pray one day they all get what they deserve. May Melanie now have the life she and her children deserve. Book packs a wallup!

    This book really was brutally honest as Mel B speaks about her abusive relationship. Mel is such a strong woman and it really does show that domestic abuse can affect anyone in any situation or level in life. Sadly as with the majority of books which highlight domestic abuse, she is almost apologetic for the fact she stayed so long and explains why she didn't leave sooner. This NEVER has to be explained or apologised for. People should stop shaming these survivors.

This NEVER has to be explained or apologised for. People should stop shaming these survivors. Each is going through their own personal hell and we should congratulate those that manage to extract themselves from that situation and move forward not asking what took them so long! For each woman that speaks up and refuses to stay silent I thank you all.

    An absolutely fantastic autobiography chronicling Mel's unique, and tough, early life growing up as a mixed-race girl in Leeds, England in the 1970s and 1980s, of being one of the most iconic women in the world as part of the Spice Girls and then up to her experience being trapped in an physically, sexually and mentally abusive marriage in glamorous Hollywood.

I listened to this book on audiobook and Zaraah Abrahams did an amazing job of capturing Mel's voice and spirit. There's also some powerful inserts from Mel's eldest daughter, Phoenix, her mother, Andrea and Mel herself. I don't normally mention trigger warnings, but I will say there are a lot of of chapters in the book that make for difficult reading, specifically relating to suicide, coercive behaviour/gaslighting, plus domestic, sexual and financial abuse.

    I finished Mel B's Brutally Honest book. Wow. She really was honest and I think fair play to her for being so open and honest, showing even the strongest woman can be manipulated and abused over years. Although I wish she would have written it in order. All of the back and forth gave me a headache.

    What a story Never liked or disliked Mel B but was curious to read this after seeing her on Loose Women. Couldnt put it down and hope it helps those in similar situations. As title says, Brutally Honest!

    Interesting totally believable as coercive behaviour has happened to friends and I have listened to the Archers plot with Helen and Titchener.
