review 1: Written in a chatty style, this is an easy to read book. The story picks up from where the last book ends. It is pretty obvious to see how much Katie has grown as a person since that fateful day when she was attacked with acid. She has been one very busy person, promoting her charity, organizing workshops, doing talks, TV shows, and basically trying to get on with her life. Not to mention the continuing operations (that in itself takes strength to cope with) and dealing with her emotional wellbeing.Her stories of her dates from hell were just appalling. I really felt for her. The cowardice of some men is unbelievable. Her determination and ability to not just survive but to thrive is a real inspiration. What happened to her could have so easily broken her as a person, and ... moreyet it didn't. Naturally, the support from her family and friends went a long way in helping her but even that could only go so far. Katie had to do the rest herself - and she did.I do hope there will another book, further down the track, as this one ends on a bit of a 'cliff hanger', with her mother still battling cancer, one of her attackers possibly being released on parole and her new motherhood to deal with. There is a lot of 'what next' left. I know that sounds voyeuristic but the author has managed to make her readership care for her wellbeing, and I am one of those people.
review 2: Although I read so many books I very rarely read biographies but I couldn't resist reading Katie Piper's new book Beautiful Ever After not because of her callous attack but because of her story of bravery.After reading this book I am full of admiration for this wonderful courageous woman she has really opened her heart and told us each raw emotion and it is impossible as the reader not to connect with her and feel for her but I have to say I didn't pity her I found her utterly inspiring, rather than sit away and give up on life Katie Piper has well and truly picked herself up and started to build an amazing fulfilling life but it is quite clear that a lot of this was thanks to her amazing support network from her family, close friends and her ray oh hope in her own new little family with James and Belle.I was so shocked at some of the dating parts in this book, I can not believe how sick and cowardice some people can be and although it upset Katie I was seething and would have loved to have got my hands on them. Katie talks a lot about her charity and it shows how passionate she is about her work, it was an insight into what the chairty involves.I loved how we got to see Katie find her confidence more in this book and progress with a natural life that she so longed for. I still found it hard that this amazing woman still is unable to see how beautiful she is not just inside but outside too and this is one of the reasons why those disgusting men should never be allowed out why should they have the chance of a nice new life when they will always hold a part of Katie's.This book was written with pure heartfelt honesty and must have been very difficult to write but I am so glad that Katie did because this is a story of recovery, determination and hope and this little gem has found a light at the end of her tunnel with the best gift she can be given with Belle.This is not a book you want to miss it is wonderfully written and a captivating read so I highly recommend this book. less
