    One thought on “The First Time”

    1. I actually wanted to give this 4 stars because, while the format takes some getting used to and the writing is pretty basic, I put it down absolutely adoring Cher herself. I knew nothing about her going in, but the book made me like her. Talk about someone who isn't into the rules. She has so much personality, and the slices of her life allow her to tell stories without becoming too nostalgic or droning on and on. By the way, she was rocking the May-December thing long before it became an Ashton [...]

    2. The First timeeach chapter is everything about her life: "First time" she did this, did that. About her meeting Bono and their life together, success and after they split up. It's not juicy enough for me but more informational about her life. I've always like Cher as an actress and a singer and I like she was always a tell it like it is woman. She is like this in her book. She uses the F Bomb a few times. She is a normal person, she did not need drugs or alcohol in her life. She also talks about [...]

    3. This is my Celebrity Trashy Autobio Bookclub's next pick. My copy just came in the mail, and it is the size/dimensions of a text book. I am about to read a text book on the subject of Cher. Be afraid.- - -Ok, read. It's not a good book, It's a bad book. (weird format, lots held back) But it did make me love Cher & understand her role in popular culture better (the original hippie).For the true Cher tell-all experience, follow her Twitter account.

    4. "My First Allergic Reaction to Republicans" is one of many first things Cher documents about her life. So Happy Valentines to Cher, a darn good bio-writer and song-writer, a person who has been in my life for over 50 years, and a person I've loved (from afar, but I did have front row seats to a Seattle show) for half-a-century! Within this chapter, Cher writes: "Old, stupid, nerdy, bullshit-dressing, pinchy-faced, golfing, bad hair-day people." Why, Cher can even see into the future!!!

    5. The format is different than other biographies I've read, but I got used to it pretty quick. Every chapter, which is usually only a page or two long, is about the first of something that happened in Cher's life.I would say Cher's life is pretty amazing. She has done so much in her life and it was really interesting to read about. But I feel because of the format a lot was left out, or sometimes held back.I still think it is a good biography, there is a lot in it to learn about Cher's life and it [...]

    6. I honestly don't know much about Cher. I've got one vinyl record by her that I listen to on ocassion, and I loved her acting in Silkwood, Mermaids and Mask, but aside from that, I don't know anything about her as a person, away from the limelight. This book offers numerous life stories, thoughts, interests and memories of this singer/actress, and I was really surprised at how well-written it was.

    7. I got this years after she wrote it, and I really enjoyed reading it. She has had such an incredible life and I love the format of the book. I didn't know the nitty gritty details of her life, and the flow was slightly hard to follow in the first time format. Overall, very enjoyable and fun to read. Love love love Cher!

    8. An interesting easy read, by Cher. I didn't realize that they bombed in the U.S and had to go to England to become famous. As a child she never fit in, because she looked different than her mother and sister. Each chapter was 1 or 2 pages about her "first", as in her first kiss, her first memories, etc. There was quite a bit with Sonny and how he really shaped her life.

    9. I loved this book, and I am not ashamed. Set up in small chapters like "the first time I had sex" and "the first time my mom kicked someone's ass for me" (or something like that), the book is hysterical. sad, but hysterical.

    10. I was looking for more of a biography when I picked up this book, not a collection of short narratives like it is. Nonetheless, I enjoyed reading it and felt a lot closer to Cher afterwards. I'm pretty sure we'd be friends.

    11. Light, quick read. Have always liked Cher & find her interesting. Loved watching the Sonny & Cher show as a kid, especially when Chastity was on.

    12. No great work of literature, but a must read for Cher fans. It's written in 1-2 page anecdotes from Cher's life, in chronological order, starting with her first memory and ending with giving Sonny's eulogy. It's an entertaining, enjoyable, quick read (and it's great for dr,'s office waiting room reading or other short spaces of time, due to it's short "chapters").

    13. Cher is great, and I loved reading her book of firsts:) She had some really really funny stories about her life with Sonny.

    14. Cher, I like you so much, but I wanted more details! Why did you break up with Sonny? Why did you ever, ever find him attractive?

    15. During more than three decades in the spotlight, Cher has continuously re-created herself in an industry that likes labels and doesn't think singers should act. As she evolved from hippie chanteuse to TV star, Las Vegas headliner, Academy Award-winning actress, pop star and film director, Cher's talent, determination and perfectionism have always been evident, which is why this slapdash autobiography comes as such a shock. In page-long, one-topic chapters describing a series of firsts in her lif [...]

    16. The First Time is a string of interviews with Cher, wherein she talks about the significant 'firsts' in her life. It's Cher, so you walk into it with expectations - I want humour, and rebellion, and blunt honesty - and it doesn't disappoint. The 'firsts' theme as a way of storytelling is fantastic - instead of a chronological order of her life events, you get a series of the most interesting snapshots. Cher's presence is felt in each one - you get the feeling you could be sitting over coffee and [...]

    17. I liked the format of the book, even if it was devised that way based on how she told it to the author. I wish Cher would have divulged more about her show or the movies she was in. It felt like she was leaving things out or skimming over key or juicy details. She definitely talked a lot about Sonny (Son as she called it). She talked about directors, her upbringing, and some famous people. I definitely enjoyed looking at all the photos throughout the book, both color and black and white. Since t [...]

    18. I love biographies, especially of celebrities. I didn't really know much about Cher before and it was a cool format--the "firsts" of her life in little snippets with pictures scattered throughout. I felt like she cussed a little too liberally without much purpose except to come off sounding angrier than she probably meant. Still, a fairly good read.

    19. Truly the best Cher book out there. Cher shares stories from her life that span from embarrassing down to sorrow. Although these are Cher's words at the time (published in 1998), dedicated fans will notice that some of the stories printed in this book are slightly different than accounts she's shared over the years in other interviews

    20. I was always curious about Cher. This was a account of her life before Sonny, with Sonny and after Sonny. Her life is interesting. She came from nothing and yet with Sonny learned a lot and was able to make a life for herself without him. I don't know what her life would have been without Sonny but they sure were good together.

    21. It was ok, should of realized by the name it wasn't a complete Bio to me just about the firsts of different stuff. I almost didn't want to finish it but I did and I am glad I did but just was expecting more of a complete Bio.

    22. I have always loved Cher and I enjoyed reading this book! I was a little disappointed in some of the things she revealed, but I guess we put celebrities on a pedastal and forget that they are human. Still, it bothered me.But I love celebrity books, esp when they write them themselves! :)

    23. I really enjoyed this book! I was up until the wee hours finishing it! Cher is such an amazing & unique person. She has been a role model to me since I was about 5, my first tape was Cher "Heart of stone" I spent HOURS pretending to be Cher when I was a kid!

    24. I would have really enjoyed this book and my rating would have been at least a 4 except for the really bad language in some parts of it.

    25. A quick read. I think it told just enough without being too invasive of some of the events that shaped her life.
