Brave

    I'm not going to review this book. I'm not going to talk about Rose McGowan. I'm not going to talk about how much better I am than all those "other" men. I'm a male. I'm a white male. I'm a white male heterosexual. This book isn't about the other men. It's about every m...

    I read this because I love Rose McGowan. Charmed is one of my favorite shows of all time. She is known for her portrayal of Paige Matthews. She appeared in movies such as Scream, Planet Terror, Death Proof and The Doom Generation. This is a fascinating, personal, and en...

    I saw Rose McGowan on an episode of The View recently. I found her edgy, forthcoming, and, well, brave. Hollywood and pop culture are not interests of mine at the moment, but seeing her on The View had me intrigued. When I saw the audiobook available, and that she read it, I figured wh...

    ?Whatever is different about you is what makes you amazing. Others will try to homogenize you for their own comfort level, because God forbid discomfort. Fuck that. Do not bend yourself to make others feel taller.? ? Rose McGowan, Brave Rose McGowan offers a revealing s...

    I was certainly aware of Rose McGowan as a movie and television actress, though I?m struggling to recall ever watching a film or programme in which she appeared. So I wasn?t sure what to expect from this autobiographical account ? even if the title and cover picture offered a clu...

    First off, "feminist" is not a dirty word, and fuck you if you think it is. You're exactly the kind of person who should read this. I know a lot of men and women (yes, women too) who are going to hate this book. They are going to palm it off as feminist bullshit, roll their eyes, a...

    Well, this is one of the most difficult books I have ever reviewed. Memoirs and biographies are always difficult but Brave is filled with so many emotions that it becomes even harder to review. First of all, I want to make it clear that I feel that I am no person to judge Rose for ...

    Quite frankly, this was fantastic. Whatever image of Rose McGowan you've had previously, scrap it. Whatever box/label/crazy filter/gas lighting/perception of her you have or see currently in the media, set that aside, too. Instead, take some time and just listen. Hear this story....

    Here lies a BRAVE female opening up an intelligent discussion and also a complete up yours to every male who ever took a piece of Rose McGowan. She lays it all on the line and leaves nothing in the tank. She exposes the dirty and mysogynist mentally that dominates the Hollywood industr...

    content warning: transphobia I read the book, and here are my thoughts It is an interesting book, that examines McGowan's own experiences as a victim of cults, sexism, and assault, that exposes a system that continues to abuse women, but this is no feminist tome. McGowan needs...

    Rose McGowan?s Brave is a brilliant, bold (and Brave) battlecry to society. A memoir which becomes a manifesto to be kinder, better, not take shit and change things. Highly recommended. ...

    Girl, I know. I think the majority of us do know exactly how this goes down. If things have changed or people are aware and trying to make change that is great. However, my responses to this subject have been along the lines of stop talking about it nothing even happened and my f...

    I just can?t finish this book. The author has a story to tell but she lacks perspective and introspection as well as a good editor and writing coach. I really don?t mean to demean her memoir. It is very real and her childhood was nothing short of bizarre. Yet in the same paragraph ...

    My book ish: Blog | Insta Updated: 04.23.18 It doesn?t feel right ?rating? an autobiography, especially one as intense and personal as this one, so consider my stars more of a decoration than a judgement. Rose McGowan is an actress that had a significant presence in my f...

    Incredible, unforgettable, and life altering. Wow, this book was truly amazing. I am at a loss of words currently when it comes to describing just how profound I found this. Rose McGowan, I want to applaud you for your bravery and this masterful piece of writing. Just wow. This piece o...

    Review Edited: I loved this memoir, but I?m struggling to separate the text from its author. ...

    So, let me start by saying that I have given this a one star review, because I think this book should not have been published. I think the publisher is exploiting a very sick woman, who is losing her grasp on reality, and herself. I do not doubt McGowan's life has been hard. I'm certai...

    Personally, I always find it a bit difficult to rate memoirs. Not only are you basing your rating off of the book's text, but (inevitably) it's hard not to take into consideration the author's personal life/beliefs, since the memoir is all about said person of course. I wouldn't call m...

    Phenomenal. Full review coming shortly. Update: 05 Feb 2018. The media wants us to believe Rose McGowan is unhinged ? she?s certainly reported that way in the mainstream. Each day, I open my newsfeed to find yet another story of how she?s ?gone off the rails?, ?attack...

    I didn?t know much about Rose McGowan except that she helped take down Hollywood?s big monster. For some reason, I?ve never seen any of her movies or tv shows. I know much more about her now. (: In this memoir, the actress details her tough upbringing and past traumatic experienc...

    Rose McGowan doesn't hold back in this brutally honest and fascinating look into her life and the Hollywood cult machine. What made this book so special was how relatable it was. The setting may be different, but this is a universal story that unfortunately ALL women can relate to. ...

    ?I felt like I was in a fun house and all the mirrors were reflecting my horrors.? McGowan has undoubtedly had a strange and difficult life. Some very valid points are made here, but they?re often shrouded in grandiosity. I (mostly) appreciate her candor, but she certainly thi...

    Don?t dive in expecting literary prose, this is more a 250 page rant against an industry that teaches society what women are, and they?re leaving out humanity. I?ve wanted Rose to write a biography since the 90?s when I read a Rollingstone article where she touched briefly on h...

    A reminder to myself never to engage with activism when it comes packaged in racism and transphobia. Deeply disappointed (again) at the lack of understanding that abuse can extend past one's experience and identity and I am glad I won't be purchasing or reading a book by a bigot. And s...

    Rose is a true inspiration. I hope her story and words can reach everyone and bring about a change that desperately needs to happen. A phenomenal book. ...

    It's difficult to write a review of a book written by a sexual abuse surviver. I have a great deal of sympathy for the pain Rose McGowan has had to endure (one of the reasons I read the book), and to add to that pain with criticism of her lived experiences seems unnecessary. However, s...

    You are brave. Sexual harassment is about power. It happens at schools, institutions, blue and white collared jobs. We don't want to see it. And when it happens to you, you don't want to believe it. The shame and the lack of compassion is a killer. I'm glad Rose has the strength ?...

    First, I need to say this is one of the most poorly written books I have read in a long time and that, perhaps, has something to do with my reaction to it. If you?re picking up ?Brave? for help in your own journey towards emancipation from a male, primarily-white, society holding...

    When I shaved my head, it was a battle cry, but more than that it gave me an answer to the question I so hated. Did I break up with someone? Yes, I broke up with the world. You can, too. My name is Rose McGowan and I am BRAVE. I have to admit that I didn't know Rose McGowan's work...

    Rose McGowan is brave. She set the stage for a frank discussion about sexual harassment and gender equality. McGowan takes on Hollywood and exposes the phony, two-faced Hollywood elite. Good for her! I have not been to see a movie in 3 years because of the trash that is produced. I use...

    First off, "feminist" is not a dirty word, and fuck you if you think it is. You're exactly the kind of person who should read this. I know a lot of men and women (yes, women too) who are going to hate this book. They are going to palm it off as feminist bullshit, roll their eyes, a...

    Well, this is one of the most difficult books I have ever reviewed. Memoirs and biographies are always difficult but Brave is filled with so many emotions that it becomes even harder to review. First of all, I want to make it clear that I feel that I am no person to judge Rose for ...

    Quite frankly, this was fantastic. Whatever image of Rose McGowan you've had previously, scrap it. Whatever box/label/crazy filter/gas lighting/perception of her you have or see currently in the media, set that aside, too. Instead, take some time and just listen. Hear this story....

    Here lies a BRAVE female opening up an intelligent discussion and also a complete up yours to every male who ever took a piece of Rose McGowan. She lays it all on the line and leaves nothing in the tank. She exposes the dirty and mysogynist mentally that dominates the Hollywood industr...

    Rose McGowan?s Brave is a brilliant, bold (and Brave) battlecry to society. A memoir which becomes a manifesto to be kinder, better, not take shit and change things. Highly recommended. ...

    Girl, I know. I think the majority of us do know exactly how this goes down. If things have changed or people are aware and trying to make change that is great. However, my responses to this subject have been along the lines of stop talking about it nothing even happened and my f...

    I just can?t finish this book. The author has a story to tell but she lacks perspective and introspection as well as a good editor and writing coach. I really don?t mean to demean her memoir. It is very real and her childhood was nothing short of bizarre. Yet in the same paragraph ...

    Review Edited: I loved this memoir, but I?m struggling to separate the text from its author. ...

    So, let me start by saying that I have given this a one star review, because I think this book should not have been published. I think the publisher is exploiting a very sick woman, who is losing her grasp on reality, and herself. I do not doubt McGowan's life has been hard. I'm certai...

    Personally, I always find it a bit difficult to rate memoirs. Not only are you basing your rating off of the book's text, but (inevitably) it's hard not to take into consideration the author's personal life/beliefs, since the memoir is all about said person of course. I wouldn't call m...

    Phenomenal. Full review coming shortly. Update: 05 Feb 2018. The media wants us to believe Rose McGowan is unhinged ? she?s certainly reported that way in the mainstream. Each day, I open my newsfeed to find yet another story of how she?s ?gone off the rails?, ?attack...

    I didn?t know much about Rose McGowan except that she helped take down Hollywood?s big monster. For some reason, I?ve never seen any of her movies or tv shows. I know much more about her now. (: In this memoir, the actress details her tough upbringing and past traumatic experienc...

    Rose McGowan doesn't hold back in this brutally honest and fascinating look into her life and the Hollywood cult machine. What made this book so special was how relatable it was. The setting may be different, but this is a universal story that unfortunately ALL women can relate to. ...

    ?I felt like I was in a fun house and all the mirrors were reflecting my horrors.? McGowan has undoubtedly had a strange and difficult life. Some very valid points are made here, but they?re often shrouded in grandiosity. I (mostly) appreciate her candor, but she certainly thi...

    Don?t dive in expecting literary prose, this is more a 250 page rant against an industry that teaches society what women are, and they?re leaving out humanity. I?ve wanted Rose to write a biography since the 90?s when I read a Rollingstone article where she touched briefly on h...

    A reminder to myself never to engage with activism when it comes packaged in racism and transphobia. Deeply disappointed (again) at the lack of understanding that abuse can extend past one's experience and identity and I am glad I won't be purchasing or reading a book by a bigot. And s...

    Rose is a true inspiration. I hope her story and words can reach everyone and bring about a change that desperately needs to happen. A phenomenal book. ...

    It's difficult to write a review of a book written by a sexual abuse surviver. I have a great deal of sympathy for the pain Rose McGowan has had to endure (one of the reasons I read the book), and to add to that pain with criticism of her lived experiences seems unnecessary. However, s...

    You are brave. Sexual harassment is about power. It happens at schools, institutions, blue and white collared jobs. We don't want to see it. And when it happens to you, you don't want to believe it. The shame and the lack of compassion is a killer. I'm glad Rose has the strength ?...

    First, I need to say this is one of the most poorly written books I have read in a long time and that, perhaps, has something to do with my reaction to it. If you?re picking up ?Brave? for help in your own journey towards emancipation from a male, primarily-white, society holding...

    When I shaved my head, it was a battle cry, but more than that it gave me an answer to the question I so hated. Did I break up with someone? Yes, I broke up with the world. You can, too. My name is Rose McGowan and I am BRAVE. I have to admit that I didn't know Rose McGowan's work...

    Review Edited: I loved this memoir, but I?m struggling to separate the text from its author. ...

    So, let me start by saying that I have given this a one star review, because I think this book should not have been published. I think the publisher is exploiting a very sick woman, who is losing her grasp on reality, and herself. I do not doubt McGowan's life has been hard. I'm certai...

    Personally, I always find it a bit difficult to rate memoirs. Not only are you basing your rating off of the book's text, but (inevitably) it's hard not to take into consideration the author's personal life/beliefs, since the memoir is all about said person of course. I wouldn't call m...

    Phenomenal. Full review coming shortly. Update: 05 Feb 2018. The media wants us to believe Rose McGowan is unhinged ? she?s certainly reported that way in the mainstream. Each day, I open my newsfeed to find yet another story of how she?s ?gone off the rails?, ?attack...

    I didn?t know much about Rose McGowan except that she helped take down Hollywood?s big monster. For some reason, I?ve never seen any of her movies or tv shows. I know much more about her now. (: In this memoir, the actress details her tough upbringing and past traumatic experienc...

    Rose McGowan doesn't hold back in this brutally honest and fascinating look into her life and the Hollywood cult machine. What made this book so special was how relatable it was. The setting may be different, but this is a universal story that unfortunately ALL women can relate to. ...

    ?I felt like I was in a fun house and all the mirrors were reflecting my horrors.? McGowan has undoubtedly had a strange and difficult life. Some very valid points are made here, but they?re often shrouded in grandiosity. I (mostly) appreciate her candor, but she certainly thi...

    Don?t dive in expecting literary prose, this is more a 250 page rant against an industry that teaches society what women are, and they?re leaving out humanity. I?ve wanted Rose to write a biography since the 90?s when I read a Rollingstone article where she touched briefly on h...

    Rose is a true inspiration. I hope her story and words can reach everyone and bring about a change that desperately needs to happen. A phenomenal book. ...

    It's difficult to write a review of a book written by a sexual abuse surviver. I have a great deal of sympathy for the pain Rose McGowan has had to endure (one of the reasons I read the book), and to add to that pain with criticism of her lived experiences seems unnecessary. However, s...

    Well, this is one of the most difficult books I have ever reviewed. Memoirs and biographies are always difficult but Brave is filled with so many emotions that it becomes even harder to review. First of all, I want to make it clear that I feel that I am no person to judge Rose for ...

    Quite frankly, this was fantastic. Whatever image of Rose McGowan you've had previously, scrap it. Whatever box/label/crazy filter/gas lighting/perception of her you have or see currently in the media, set that aside, too. Instead, take some time and just listen. Hear this story....

    Here lies a BRAVE female opening up an intelligent discussion and also a complete up yours to every male who ever took a piece of Rose McGowan. She lays it all on the line and leaves nothing in the tank. She exposes the dirty and mysogynist mentally that dominates the Hollywood industr...

    content warning: transphobia I read the book, and here are my thoughts It is an interesting book, that examines McGowan's own experiences as a victim of cults, sexism, and assault, that exposes a system that continues to abuse women, but this is no feminist tome. McGowan needs...

    Rose McGowan?s Brave is a brilliant, bold (and Brave) battlecry to society. A memoir which becomes a manifesto to be kinder, better, not take shit and change things. Highly recommended. ...

    Girl, I know. I think the majority of us do know exactly how this goes down. If things have changed or people are aware and trying to make change that is great. However, my responses to this subject have been along the lines of stop talking about it nothing even happened and my f...

    I just can?t finish this book. The author has a story to tell but she lacks perspective and introspection as well as a good editor and writing coach. I really don?t mean to demean her memoir. It is very real and her childhood was nothing short of bizarre. Yet in the same paragraph ...

    My book ish: Blog | Insta Updated: 04.23.18 It doesn?t feel right ?rating? an autobiography, especially one as intense and personal as this one, so consider my stars more of a decoration than a judgement. Rose McGowan is an actress that had a significant presence in my f...

    Review Edited: I loved this memoir, but I?m struggling to separate the text from its author. ...

    So, let me start by saying that I have given this a one star review, because I think this book should not have been published. I think the publisher is exploiting a very sick woman, who is losing her grasp on reality, and herself. I do not doubt McGowan's life has been hard. I'm certai...

    Personally, I always find it a bit difficult to rate memoirs. Not only are you basing your rating off of the book's text, but (inevitably) it's hard not to take into consideration the author's personal life/beliefs, since the memoir is all about said person of course. I wouldn't call m...

    Phenomenal. Full review coming shortly. Update: 05 Feb 2018. The media wants us to believe Rose McGowan is unhinged ? she?s certainly reported that way in the mainstream. Each day, I open my newsfeed to find yet another story of how she?s ?gone off the rails?, ?attack...

    I didn?t know much about Rose McGowan except that she helped take down Hollywood?s big monster. For some reason, I?ve never seen any of her movies or tv shows. I know much more about her now. (: In this memoir, the actress details her tough upbringing and past traumatic experienc...

    Rose McGowan doesn't hold back in this brutally honest and fascinating look into her life and the Hollywood cult machine. What made this book so special was how relatable it was. The setting may be different, but this is a universal story that unfortunately ALL women can relate to. ...

    ?I felt like I was in a fun house and all the mirrors were reflecting my horrors.? McGowan has undoubtedly had a strange and difficult life. Some very valid points are made here, but they?re often shrouded in grandiosity. I (mostly) appreciate her candor, but she certainly thi...

    Don?t dive in expecting literary prose, this is more a 250 page rant against an industry that teaches society what women are, and they?re leaving out humanity. I?ve wanted Rose to write a biography since the 90?s when I read a Rollingstone article where she touched briefly on h...

    A reminder to myself never to engage with activism when it comes packaged in racism and transphobia. Deeply disappointed (again) at the lack of understanding that abuse can extend past one's experience and identity and I am glad I won't be purchasing or reading a book by a bigot. And s...

    Rose is a true inspiration. I hope her story and words can reach everyone and bring about a change that desperately needs to happen. A phenomenal book. ...

    It's difficult to write a review of a book written by a sexual abuse surviver. I have a great deal of sympathy for the pain Rose McGowan has had to endure (one of the reasons I read the book), and to add to that pain with criticism of her lived experiences seems unnecessary. However, s...

    You are brave. Sexual harassment is about power. It happens at schools, institutions, blue and white collared jobs. We don't want to see it. And when it happens to you, you don't want to believe it. The shame and the lack of compassion is a killer. I'm glad Rose has the strength ?...
