    It's Okay......

    This book was a good book, but it wasn't anything special. If u're a fan of Aaliyah, like i am, u will enjoy...But if this is the last of ur money don't waste it on this book, this is a book compiled of a bunch of facts that r common knowledge to a fan.

    Forever Missed

    The book wasnt great, as said, the author constantly lost focus and difted into irrelevant things, or began to go into long discussion of other artists. It did contain some interesting things tho, like his interveiw with her. I will buy nething dealing w/ babygirl, however i wasnt all that satisfyied w/ this book. I still reccomend buying it tho.

    One Year Since You´ve Been Gone

    I just happenned to finish ¨More Than A Woman¨ last night, the day before the 1 year anniversary of Aaliyah´s death. I find it hard to be a critic towards a book that is about a person whom I have great love and admiration for, I think we all feel this way. Any new things that we may find out about Aaliyah is like finding a pearl in the ocean. I think that if we are to write about such a precious individual, we must treat a book about her as just that. I enjoyed reading the book because of Aaliyah, but was quite disappointed in the change of focus, which occurred quite often throughout the book. Too many facts about other subjects clouded what the book was really about. Mr. Farley´s work is appreciated though. We need a book about Aaliyah with more than 5 pictures, HARDCOVER to have for life in rememberance, and maybe some more time and effort venturing into who Aaliyah really was, an Angel. RIP Baby Gurl, One Love.

    this book was good, but the author never really talked about aaliyah herself in the book, im gonna read Aaliyah and R&B princess in words and pictures and see if it stays on the topic. The author kept talking about othe rpeople instead of aaliyah. It wasnt written very good.

    about the book

    hey people, i thought that the book was really good when the author talked about aaliyah but he kept on drifting off the topic of aaliyah and was going and talking about other artist i mean hello the book is about aaliyah not other artist. i mean if i was writing a book about aaliyah i would be saying everything about her from beginning to end and i think they need a true author to do this book/ i give it 3 stars because the author drifted off of aaliyah especially about the love story about aaliyah and damon dash.

    It's a nice keepsake

    This book was OK. But like someone else mentioned, it's seems to be more for someone who really didn't know who she was and just want to know a little about her background and life. The writer talks about other artists and their success and it is often long and drawn-out. I guess he was just talking about R&B in general, but to me there was just too much info about other artists for a book that was titled 'Aaliyah'. Hopefully someone will come out with a better book (or even a movie) in the future. Much love to Aaliyah, she will always be remembered..........

    Less then a book

    Itt's an ok book, but the author didn't go in depth in Aaliyahs life. The author also had a habit od dedicating a whole page to other artist and highschool books we hated reading. It's an alright book, but don't except ton feel as if you know the departed star better.
