The author shared a prolific insight as to the life of a megastar. A life, draining the very core of their being from one who lives a life of stardom. A life degrading the very purpose of the star, due to the tabloid magazines nonstop delusion portrayed to the public. The author shows the greed and evil intent of many people. Karen Moriarty paints a picture that would make any rising star of today weary of any further pursuit of stardom.
There is a plethora of information inadvertently making me question my own path of altruistic abilities of contribution or lack thereof. It was refreshing to see Michael Jackson's life portrayed as humanitarian as opposed to demonized since he was cleared of any wrongdoing.
The author projected a unique style of writing, showing a poetic love toward Michael Jackson. Karen Moriarty has the ability to make me feel I was in the scene to which she was describing. I forgot the author was even there. This is a skill of the makings of a great author. I am so happy I read it, and my life will be better enriched because of it.
I want to recommend it to all of my friends and family or anyone who wants or needs to see the world in a greater light.
I recommend it to anyone who is looking for the real reason we are here.
I want to recommend it to anyone who wants to know their true purpose in life. The book does not disappoint.
Thank you Karen Moriarty for this wonderful experience.
