I, Tina by Tina TurnerEat the cake anime! This is one of the funniest quotes from the book I, Tina. I, Tina is one of the few books I have read in my spare time out of boredom. Surprisingly, I enjoyed this book so much that I then went out my way to see the movie. The movie was just as amazing as the book itself. The fact that this book was non-fiction, made me enjoy it because I only like fictional books to a certain extent. The humor and sorrow played out well in I, Tina because it made me think and at the same time, I could relate to it. One more thing that I loved about the book was how it ended.
Being that I, Tina is somewhat of a biography on Tina Turner’s life, you should automatically know that this book is non-fiction. I love when I am able to relate to a book and that is exactly why I enjoyed this book. Tina included real characters and real events in the book, which made it very interesting and hard to put down. One part of the book that amazed me was when Tina spoke about the birth of her child and how Ike snuck her and the baby out of the hospital, knowing that Tina had a low blood count. He did this just so Tina could continue to sing, he didn’t care about her health. Tons of feeling and emotion was put into the book because you can feel it through writing.
Although I, Tina is a serious it is very humorous. I, Tina has very sad parts but I thought they were hilarious. The book has tons of emotional chapters it makes me feel like i was in Tina Turners shoes but even though is heavily emotional it makes me laugh. A funny part of the book was when Ike Turner made Tina eat the cake. It was funny but sad at the same time because it wasnt funny to Tina.
In conclusion, the story of her flight from Ike with thirty-six cents to her name; the subsequent lawsuits for breach of contract and her comeback to fame and fortune that topped anything she had known when she was part of Ike-and-Tina-Turner is well known enough not to have to recount here; but most of this book is a fascinating and well-written exploration of her childhood, her rise to fame, and the hell of her marriage with Ike, told by many different voices besides hers and Ikes that were witness to it all. We listen to Tinas own voice: I gave in to myself. I went inside of me to help me. You can do it. We look at Tina now, heading for seventy and still drop-dead gorgeous, and we feel a deep admiration and respect for a very magnificent lady. This book is inspired reading.

I t has not been enough for her simply to survive.
