Ironic : The Story of Alanis Morissette. This book is definitely not the book to read if you're looking for something like a biography, thoughts, feelings or anything like that of Alanis Morissette. I read this book expecting to fill this gap that I had in my Alanis knowledge (I'd like to get inside her head!) but instead I learnt a lot more. As I read it, I discovered that it was less to do with Alanis, and much to do with 'the female rock revolution.

Ironic: Alanis Morissette, the Story. Alanis Morissette: You Oughta Know. One has to wonder why two biographies of singer/songwriter Alanis Morissette – by rock critic Barry Grills and Ottawa Sun writer Paul Cantin – are being released now, just as the hoopla over Morissette is starting to subside. However, since celebrity biographies are generally aimed at fans, it’s likely both will fare well since they can tap into a market of millions of people

Written by Alanis Morissette and Jagged Little Pill’s producer Glen Ballard, Ironic describes some peculiar and unfortunate situations and went on to be nominated for Record of the Year at the 39th Grammy Awards 1997. Its music video was also nominated in the very same 1997 Grammy Awards for Best Music Video, Short Form. The song is well-known in popular culture because it sparked a long-running debate over its title and how it relates to the situations in the song; Ironic also triggered many literary discussions over its meaning (its deeper sense) and also over the very definition of the.

I learned a lot from this book, but it wasn't all what I wanted to know. I thought I was going to read the story of Alanis Morissette, but I read a lot more about other musicians who have very little in common with her. I understand that you can't write 200 pages just about one person, but that's no reason to go into detail about irrelevant topics. I mean, the guy wrote a whole chapter just about Jim Morrison! I personally don't know much about Morrison, but I don't see what his life has to do with the story of Alanis. Most of the book is just filled with a lot of hard-to-follow information that I bet most people didn't pay attention to. The author freely expresses his own opinions, but most of his opinions aren't about Alanis or her music. They are about other things like women in rock and how the media trivializes important social movements by making them seem like passing trends. That stuff is all true and important to know, but you don't have to be so philosophical about it. This guy doesn't really know how to make a point. Other than that, it's an okay book, if you're patient enough to actually read it. :

This book is definitely not the book to read if you're looking for something like a biography, thoughts, feelings or anything like that of Alanis Morissette. I read this book expecting to fill this gap that I had in my Alanis knowledge (I'd like to get inside her head!) but instead I learnt a lot more.
As I read it, I discovered that it was less to do with Alanis, and much to do with 'the female rock revolution.' BUT STOP: GO AND BUY IT ANYWAY! This book is really interesting, or at least I thought so, because you learn so much about what Alanis Morissette has been part of. Thanks to this book, I've learnt about Tori Amos (a great singer and Alanis' friend!,) Patti Smith (an oldish rock singer) and many more female rockers, and it's really great!
The way the book is written can be a bit tiresome: Barry Grills seems to be stuck on using the word 'ironic' every other sentence, and also it is a little hard to get into, but I do recommend it.

Well, this book does tell her life in a way. It is okay, but too long! Basically, all it does is talk about how "angry young females" came along and you would think it is a whole book on some of the people the book talks about other than Alanis. I mean, do we really need to know about Bjork, Joni Mitchell, or Tori Amos when we want Alanis? It does have a nice discography section. But I just couldn't even get past the first five pages. Not to mention, the author (Barry Grills) uses hard-to-understand words. Although I do have to say that if you want to know every little teeny tiny thing about her, this book is good. Yeah, it's just average. I recommend the CD-size book.

I feel that people are missing the reason that Mr. Grills included other artists stories in "Ironic." It was clearly an attempt to show Alanis' musical influences. I wish that Barry Grills would have put a little more time and heart into this book. I saw many typing errors, which is always a sign of a speedy deadline. I hate to see fans who feel that they were robbed by purchasing this book. It contains beautiful photography, an extensive discography, and an up-to-date account of her life and musical career. If you don't go into this book with high expectations, then I feel that you will gain some great insight into the greatest living musical artist.

Normally, I wouldn't give any book on alanis a bad review, but i JUST couldn't help myself. I think that this book wasn't really about alanis. It had a lot of facts that weren,t 100% accurate. (I think he got these on the internet) It talked about lots of boring facts in it and I couldn't bring myself to read past the first few chapters! Sorry, barry grills, I think your book isn't very interestiong, intreguing or informative. Even so, I collect Alanis stuff and this book is a necessity for my collection. Thanks for reading, E.J. :)

Essentially that title sums it up. The problem with most of these kinds of books is they cover every facet of the performer's life but they are too close in time and too enthusiastic to be definitive on the career of someone who is clearly talented and articulate but has a long way to go to develop to the level of those whom we will remember a hundred years on. This is a source on a life in progress not anywhere near a final word and analysis.
This review will serve as well for the second edition when it is listed here.

Barry Grills worked way to hard of this un-researched book! The only thing worth saying is the cover, the rest is trash...I would normally give it a 2 for effort, but Amazon is selling it which is a point down for them. Don't waste your money, just look and run away now! If your going to get an Alanis book, I reccommend Alanis Morissette: A Biography by Paul Cantin. Anything about Alanis and the author is Paul Cantin, is worth buying.
I stopped in the middle because it got so damn boreing. All the author talked about was Jim Morrison. The contence of the book was pretty lame. I would say the best part of the book was the picture on the cover. ( If you were thinking about buying this book, I wouldn't recomend it! ) , And why I gave it a =2, is because I gave an effort score.
