    One thought on “Cilla - Queen of the Swinging Sixties”

    1. Cilla Black was a huge star in the 1960 s and one of the most successful girl solo singers of that decade Even after her fledgling career as a pop singer seemed to be over, she branched out into television always reinventing herself and moving forwards As she admits often throughout this book, always motivated to work and succeed This biography of Cilla is written in a chatty, easy to read, style At times, in fact, in reads like an extended interview, making use of various quotes and often fail [...]

    2. I listened to this on audible and unfortunately the narration did not work for me I found the Liverpool accent unauthentic and irritating and the other accents even worse.The content of the book for the most part was interesting and seemed honest, noting the criticism as well as the praise for Cilla, but the last third was purely about Blind Date with far too much about the contestants, annoying accents and very boring On the whole I was left disappointed.

    3. Interesting because of its history and time set in I did enjoy it but was poorly edited at times and seemed to chop and change time frames likely because he used earlier material pre 2000 at times but didn t edit it and talks about 2000 in the future and the future for Cilla when he already earlier at the front discussed her death Sloppy at times Especially enjoyed the Blind Date segments
