    1. This advance reader's copy was graciously provided to me by NetGalley in return for my honest review.I can still hear the hypnotic, thumping bass of "Dreams" blaring out of a car window as I recall walking home from high school on a hot June day in the late seventies. Summer was beckoning and Fleetwood Mac's album "Rumours" ruled the radio. I never was a huge Fleetwood Mac fan, but when "The Mac" reunited in 1997 for their magnificent concert and CD "The Dance," I was more entranced than ever wi [...]


    2. 3.5 starsThis was an informative, interesting, and thorough biography of Stevie, and even though (as someone else pointed out) most of the material is taken from interviews throughout the years, I admire the amount of research that was done. True fans will no doubt know most of what is in this book, but for a casual fan (like me), there was much new information and a few "rumors" I had heard were either confirmed or debunked. What was especially enjoyable was the background of many songs and how [...]


    3. I will state a little caveat before I start this review--I am a Stevie Nicks fan girl. Dyed in the wool, total worshiper. I had no idea this book existed until I stumbled across it at my local library. (Let that be a lesson--never stop trolling your favorite sections in the library--you may not know what you are looking for, but the library knows). I was pretty enthralled--I have adored Stevie since I was a little 70's child--I was exposed to the radio constantly in the 70's and the second I hea [...]


    4. Fascinating! This is a re-release of a book from a few years ago. I received it from NetGalley in exchange for a fair review. I have always been enthralled, "bewitched", and fascinated by Stevie Nicks. From the first time I listened to Fleetwood Mac in the mid-seventies until today. That voice. That music. And, later, when I would see concert clips of them on The Midnight Special and other shows, the pure enchantment of watching Stevie perform. And, later, to actually seeing them perform in conc [...]


    5. Great book about a fascinating woman. So much interesting information on the magic that is Stevie. I loved learning Stevie's true meanings of her songs. All the usual stuff is here about the love and strife between her and her Fleetwood Mac bandmates, but you also get a look at Stevie's early life before the band and an expanded look at her amazing solo career too. A real eye opener. Fans of Stevie and Fleetwood Mac will definitely not be disappointed. Netgalley ARC received for an unbiased revi [...]


    6. I love Stevie Nicks. Adore her. Wanna be here if I ever grow up. I waited and waited for this book to come out, didn't have the money when it did, so requested it from my library.i am Oh-so-glad I got it at the library and didn't BUY it. the book contains mostly stuff any Nicks fan would, and should, already know; it's mostly a record of her love affairs (already knew; don't care), her drug use (DUH), her albums (own em all), and squabbles with Lindsey Buckingham and Fleetwood Mac (again, alread [...]


    7. As a huge Stevie Nicks fan, I was really excited about a biography but in fact it contains no new info and has no direct interviews with Fleetwood Mac or her friends/family and as a result, I felt I knew the information already. It is more like a Fleetwood Mac biography than one dedicated to Stevie Nicks. A missed opportunity



    8. Stevie's voice is one that nobody will ever forget, however I was not that impressed with this book. I don't know what I was hoping for but I just had a hard time getting into it and really feeling the passion one would expect, however, some parts were interesting and revealed somethings I wasn't aware of. I received this book from NetGalley for an honest review.


    9. I enjoyed the book. I did feel that it just pulled from a lot of other sources, however. I didn't learn anything new about Stevie.


    10. I took this book on holiday for reading whilst relaxing in the sun, what was great about this was that I could listen to the songs as the author explained the backstory of the songs, overall this was a very enjoyable book and provided a good appreciation of the career of Stevie Nicks, generally Stevie does not gat a whole book dedicated to her career and her songs, normally this is contained within books on Fleetwood Mac, don't get me wrong, there is much info contained on Fleetwood Mac and espe [...]


    11. As a Stevie Nicks fan, I enjoyed this new biography from British journalist Zoe Howe, but recommend it with some reservations. I was a bit disappointed that most of the material is sourced from published interviews and books, so I would not recommend this book for fans looking for "new" insights about Nicks, especially fans who have already read one of the several Stevie Nicks biographies currently on the market. Howe is clearly a fan of Stevie Nicks, offering commentary throughout the chronolog [...]


    12. Looking for Viv Albertine's autobiog at the library I also picked this up. Yes I can do both proto-punk feminist and 70s soft rock. But despite this heft, its just a pedestrian gathering of quotes from previously published interviews. A cut and paste I think its called in the publishing industry. Author is really irritating, with snarky little asides or bad jokes tagged on, like a bad party guest trying to muscle in on an anecdote.


    13. Fleetwood Mac was one of those bands that I did not really appreciate growing up but now that I am an adult they are one of my all-time favorite classic rock bands. Though I know their music quite well I knew little about the bandmates themselves and their rocky history until I read the latest Stevie Nicks biography Stevie Nicks: Visions, Dreams, and Rumors by Zoe Howe.I personally fell in love with Stevie Nicks when she did her solo album Rock a Little which was released in 1985. Stevie's uniqu [...]


    14. Well it's true, if you're a big fan of Stevie's you won't learn anything new here. This is a book whilst extensive about going over Nicks history, lacks any real in depth consideration or insight. This is because the author has sourced her material from YouTube videos, interviews and documentaries, some being dubious sources (like Carol Ann Harris' insipid work). It's not to say it's not worth reading. On the whole it's an enjoyable, easy read and if you wanted to know about Nicks then it's wort [...]





    15. Only 3 stars most of this book was from interviews that Stevie did or Fleetwood Mac did nothing really new or quotes from Mick Fleetwood book. I felt it dragged on in a few chapters.




    16. A solid 3.5 stars for this look at Stevie Nicks. While it was written sympathetically, it did not gloss over her drug use and affairs. Very interesting.


    17. This was a pretty general bio but I enjoyed it enough. Pretty sure Stevie did about 40 percent of all the cocaine available in the 70s and 80s.


    18. This is such a great journey through Stevie Nicks' career. I have been a huge fan for a long time. Also I have loved her songs and what they make me feel. Isn't that what music is supposed to do? Make us feel what the songwriters were feeling when they wrote it. I really enjoyed the stories behind the songs. As I was reading this, I knew of the history between Stevie and Lindsey, but this book really describes the intensity of their relationship to span ALL these years. I love the interesting fa [...]


    19. Stevie Nicks: Visions, Dreams & Rumors by Zoë Howe is a free NetGalley ebook that I read in mid-February.Howe offers diaphanous storytelling, but doesn't allow readers to fully peek beyond a veil without another rising up in its place flutteringly in front their noses. Stevie is shown to evolve from a fun, creative childhood into a siren-like, irresistible mystical woman with a singing career and a signature style that borrows from other famous (or infamous) songstresses, yet makes it all h [...]


    20. Biographies can offer a wide range of information and insight. This one mostly sticks to the evolution of Stevie Nicks' music career, along with her love life and drug abuse as it coincides with her music. It's important to note that Nicks did not participate in this biography. The author does not interview Nicks or anyone else for this book. All the material is gathered from old interviews and books already published. While that entails a whole lot of research, we don't get any new information [...]


    21. All of the typical criticisms aside (previously published interviews, primary focus on Fleetwood Mac, no first-hand interviews with the subject herself), this wasn't as bad as I expected it to be. If you're a fan, you'll devour anything about Stevie and that's sort of where the problem was for me. The writer did not seem to have much objectivity, and there seemed to be a lot of snark directed towards her subject. While I appreciate that it was not a drooling, starry-eyed Stevie-worshipper's docu [...]


    22. Zoe Howe is clearly a fan of Ms. Nicks. (which is fine, anyone reading this book is probably a fan as well). However, the problem occurs when the author wants to turn her subject into a Mary Sue. Stevie Nicks has always been very open about her battles with cocaine, clonopin, don Henley, and last but certainly not least Lindsey Buckingham. Through out the book you find small vignettes that are pieced together by Mrs. Howe through past interviews, news reels, and i would have to assume her own im [...]


    23. I read biographies and autobiographies of the people who defined my times in musical terms becausewell, they sing of my times. I went to my first Fleetwood Mac concert in 1975; my second this year, forty years later, so it was with much curiosity about what had happened during all this time that led me to Mick Fleetwood's autobiographies and this well-researched, revealing book about the great Stevie Nicks. I am amazed that some of my favorite musical artists survived the quantity of drugs they [...]


    24. Terribly disappointing. I've been waiting for a decent Nicks biography, and this looked like it: thick (turns out it's just 352 pages of big type but thick paper), haunting black and white cover photo (like all serious bios of modern folks!), a thoroughly professional look. This is, frustratingly, merely a breathless, idolizing, extended fanzine article. Everything I read I'd already read on the Internet. Tellingly, no source notes. No original research. No original interviews or correspondence. [...]
