Unveiling a personality!

If you are a fan of people who have done extraordinary things with their lives, this book is for you! To read of a woman who has accomplished so much through sheer grit and determination is a true motivator for oneself! Shahnazs' life reads like the stuff of movies - very vivid, very crisp, very emotionally involved. For an avid reader, this book compares to Princess and Daughters of Arabia by Jean Sasson and the like. Don't look for shortcuts to business in this book, enjoy it purely for the moments that make Shahnaz a diva! Its a fascinating insight into one of India's most flamboyant personalities. Nelofar has turned out to be a brilliant first time writer. Surprising since we haven't heard of this talent before! 5 on 5 for the written word!

Brilliant Read!

AMAZING BOOK!!! like wow!!
i saw lots of promotions about this book.. thought i will give it a try..! bought it for my sister...she's crazy about Shahnaz Husain... but i ended up keeping this copy and sending her another one!.. It is such a compelling story! Seems like you're sitting in the same room as her while things are happening in her life! Feel emotional at places, proud in some.. like you know her.. Well i know her better now than ever before!!!
it is soo vivid! like pictures playing out in your head.. like a movie!!
10 out of 10 recommendation!!

Unputdownable!!

The review behind the book says unputdownable and so it is! I came back tired from office and started reading and could not stop till I was done!Beautiful writing by nelofar and wonderful editing. The book takes you through Shahnaz Hussain's life and by the time you are done you feel exhilarated! Relationships are etched out so beautifully. am so happy that i bought this book!

But flipkart needs to take note of the fact that some pages are repeated and one page from the foreword is missing:( But no regrets cuz i loved every bit :)
