Bobbie Brown. Editorial Reviews Amazon. This autobiographical bildungsroman brings out the creepiest aspects of childhood, conveying the terror and fascination that young Marilyn then called Brian felt when looking through his grandfather's pornography, getting his first French kiss, and being taunted by the girls he wanted to "date. This gives him an incredibly broad perspective, which he brings to bear on his ordinary life in order to convey the more potent and frightening moments that shaped him into the pale-skinned weirdo that the Christian Right loves to hate.
Best of all, Manson is shockingly honest, and portrays himself as occasionally stupid, self-centered, over-sensitive, ignoble, and, mostly, highly fallible and human. It's a long way from the auto-hagiographies that other stars have written, and it's easily one of the best reads in celebrity bio. By turns moving, funny, appalling, and disturbing There has never been anything like it.

It's a shame that other reviewers rated this as trash or made up. Unfortunately for some of us, we have lived these horrors, some worse than others. I related to his story and life. I felt the same way and empathized. Only those of us who rose from the ashes of disfunctional families and secrets will understand.

I don't remember what exactly encouraged me to read this book. But when I finally obtain this book in my hands, I was excited and thrilled to learn about Marilyn Manson Brian Warner life and how he came to be.
I'm not a huge fan of ebooks, but since the Los Angeles Public Library has free ebooks to check out and read for 21 days, it's definitely worth it. I realized when I read the first chapter, that I was entering a very deep dark explicit world that I was not necessarily comfortable with.
A I don't remember what exactly encouraged me to read this book. At the same time, I had a feeling that this was no ordinary autobiography, not just an ordinary book to read for fun.
It starts off with his childhood and how he was exposed to adult content at a very young age and his experience with Christianity. Throughout the book he didn't miss a single detail of his drug adventures, his experiences of betrayal, his vulnerabilities, his sexual experiences that he had with his band members. It was as though the reader was dragged into a deep dark tunnel, almost literally there observing his path as a artist; that's how amazing the imagery in this book.
I almost felt like I was wasting my time reading this, but then I realized that perhaps that's the intention of the book, to have a sense of what he felt at certain moments in his life, like the chapter when he describes the making of the Antichrist album. But like any tunnel there is an end to that darkness. He soon realized that drugs where not allowing him to be productive. That was my favorite part, not because it's uplifting but because it shows someone realizing on their own their mistakes and know that they can be fixed in order to achieve their ambitions.
Overall, no matter how disturbing and haunting this book was for me, it was a very special read. I enjoyed it, it was brutally honest, and well it was just bloody amazing. I totally recommend this autobiography, because it's human.
View 1 comment. Words cannot express how awful this book was. Antichrist Superstar? More like pretentious, hypocritical, immature douchebag. Ah, the s. Those kids were obviously dumber than dog shit.
My imaginary conversation with the author while reading this book: Tell me, what wa Words cannot express how awful this book was.
Tell me, what was so hellish? You didn't like school? Sometimes girls you liked didn't like you back, and sometimes girls you dated broke up with you? MY GOD! The horror! No man in history has suffered as you have! Soooo scary! Got it. Oh, wait - there's more? Oh, I see: You like to take drugs and do stupid, gross things. That's neat. What else ya got? Taking drugs and doing stupid, gross things? Oh, man; that is just sooo cool and sooo dark.
OK, I'll bite: What did you talk about? Whether or not you'd have a relationship with Traci Lords? Dang, I can't even attempt sarcasm: That's fucking hilarious. May 25, Rebecca McNutt rated it liked it. This book wasn't bad; it debunks several allegations that Manson or Brian Warner is the devil, the cause of the Columbine shooting or a teen suicide influence, and proves that without the stage makeup, this guy is pretty normal though rather a jerk and a bully at times and very full of himself, convinced he has all the answers.
What I didn't like was that much of it was ranting about his childhood, trying to evoke a pity party with disturbing memories, much like the notorious Running with Sci This book wasn't bad; it debunks several allegations that Manson or Brian Warner is the devil, the cause of the Columbine shooting or a teen suicide influence, and proves that without the stage makeup, this guy is pretty normal though rather a jerk and a bully at times and very full of himself, convinced he has all the answers.
What I didn't like was that much of it was ranting about his childhood, trying to evoke a pity party with disturbing memories, much like the notorious Running with Scissors I've really lost any possible respect for Marilyn Manson; I don't think he's evil or a devil but I think that the way he cruelly torments people as if he's a schoolyard bully is just nasty and immature behavior.
Gangbanging a deaf girl? A nazi memorabilia collection? Seriously, how much of this behavior is all done in a pathetic effort to retain his Addams Family "I'm so unique" stage image? This book certainly has its moments, and when it does, they're always incredibly well-written and include everything from humor to deep seriousness. But after about a hundred-some pages of ranting and raving about a pervert grandfather and a religious school, it gets a little old.
Jan 24, Olga rated it really liked it. Manson is the man and I've been listening to him for the good half of my life. Don't know if it makes me sound young or old.
After reading this book, many "burning" questions were satisfied with needed knowledge. So, all the rumors about Manson's relationship with his band mates or changing his skeletal anatomy to perform specific acts are well, just rumors. Along with numerous public "affidavits" of his "immoral" behavior.
Of course, there were moments that made me cringe and not everything he Manson is the man and I've been listening to him for the good half of my life.
Of course, there were moments that made me cringe and not everything he did I fully support, but in the end, he's a performer and most of his "disgusting" moves were done just to make the public feel all their flaws and imperfections. Writing is decent yet very simple, looks like Srauss did some heavy editing to sell another product.
While listening to Manson speaking, you can feel how much he means by his unspoken word, and the book erases that feeling, for most of the time. There are interviews, documents, pictures and Manson's dreams in some chapters, and those are my personal favorites. The book was published in , and logically, it covers only a period of his life till then. Manson changed a lot since then.
His lyrics, social image and the stage behavior. He's always been somewhat a media-diva, unlike other "true-metal" stars, but he never actually claimed to perform metal.. Still, he dreamed to be a big rock star and he's confident that goal has been achieved. May 24, Trisha rated it did not like it Shelves: The book does not lend itself to either of those things. The material was initially eccentric enough to be interesting but as my senses dulled the book became increasingly boring.
Manson is never able to overcome the powerful angst that he feels as a youth. Instead of trying to develop his character, he fuels his angst with drugs and acts of shock.
He continually brings up his religious and philosophical studies but unfortunately elaborates much more on his dark nightmares, psychedelic trips, and backstage drug-addled experiences. Throughout the book he identifies and attempts to humiliate individuals by relating subjective stories about their personalities and their situations.
I was disappointed to find his account filled with contempt, revenge, and misanthropy rather than a discussion around radical individualism think Ayn Rand. Jun 04, Stephen rated it liked it Shelves: Chances are, regardless if you've heard his music or not, you've at least heard of Marilyn Manson.
Though he's lost some of his notoriety over the years, he was Public Enemy 1 for religious leaders and politicians in the mid to late 90's. Now, whereas I don't consider myself a fan of his music, I've always been fascinated by Brian Warner, the man behind the alter-ego of Marilyn Manson. In interviews, Manson has always come across as intelligent and articulate, so I was curious to see the man be Chances are, regardless if you've heard his music or not, you've at least heard of Marilyn Manson.
In interviews, Manson has always come across as intelligent and articulate, so I was curious to see the man behind the makeup. The biggest impression I walked away from was that Brian Warner doesn't want to be Marilyn Manson, but in a way he feels like he has to. In most of the book, he laments the sex, drugs and rock and roll lifestyle, but then goes on to go into detail about some of his backstage escapades. The thing is, he does so without the usual "rock star gusto" you would expect from Gene Simmons or Tommy Lee.
Rather, Warner seems almost resentful about his behavior, as if he doesn't want to do these things, but feels he must for some obscure dedication to being a rock star. That's not to say that the book isn't entertaining, but it doesn't reveal as much as I'd like. I really wanted to learn more about him, but instead it feels like a fluff piece for a Rolling Stone article. And indeed, the book was co-written by a Rolling Stone author.
If you're a fan of Manson, I recommended this book. It won't shed any new light about him, merely just reinforce all the things you like about him. However, for those on the outside such as myself who wants to know the man behind Manson, I don't suggest reading this book. Jan 17, Zuky the BookBum marked it as to-read. Aug 06, Anna rated it really liked it.
This is a great insight into Mariyn's messed up brain.
It's a funny, twisted read. I hadn't realised how sensitive he was underneath how seemingly heartless he seemed at times. The depression and anger Manson feels in which he writes about can only come from his experiences in life - the hypocracy he was surrounded by from childhood I'm talking about Ms Price, his Grandfather, his school.
It makes you think. It makes you realize the reason why a lot of people hate him or protest against him holding concerts claiming that he is 'Evil' is because they are not ready to see the world for what it is yet or are just judging him by his appearance. It's one of the best autobiographies because he doesn't mess around, he actually has things worth saying. The extracts from Manson's writings as a journalist - , his submissions to a fucked up horror magazine, some of his own stories and tortured poetry that were put in the book are perfect.
He pisses all over the boundaries of what is acceptable and I love it though that shop one.. I skipped it mostly. I recommend this, if you like Manson's music or don't understand him at all. But, I don't recommend this if you get easily disgusted or if you have a weak stomach, ok.
Oct 01, Myss-Syckness rated it it was amazing. I think this is the first biography I ever fully read. I read it two or three times actually. I hate when people critisize or ridicule Manson because he actually is a very intellegent person. I love this book so much, it gives you a real in depth look at his life from childhood to where he is today Some of it is serious, some of it is I think this is the first biography I ever fully read.
Some of it is serious, some of it is pretty funny.. He's met a lot of people, even the writer of the Satanic bible. Oh and there's actualy pages dedicated to rumours and myths about him and whether they're true or not. So, if any hater out there actually took the time to read this which they probably wouldn't due to ignorance they would learn that Manson does not do half of the things he has been accused of, and they would learn and understand why he is, the way he is.
My favourite part is when he describes an acid trip haha. Also, there are some pages of really good photos.. All in all, this is my all time favourite autobiography, or book about any musician. Apr 21, Ashley Ford rated it it was ok. If you want to read something that could be summed up in less than thousands of words as "I had lots of depraved sex, and did lots of cocaine," then this is the book for you! However, if you were expecting something scintillating, or that Marilyn Manson is more behind the man on stage, you will be disappointed.
I always found him as an intellectual, however, watching a deaf girl being rammed while covered in lunch meat isn't exactly intellectually stimulating. In fact, this book made If you want to read something that could be summed up in less than thousands of words as "I had lots of depraved sex, and did lots of cocaine," then this is the book for you!
In fact, this book made me look at Marilyn Manson as less of an intellectual, and more of some weird kid who happened to get famous, get really fucked up on drugs after having really weird family encounters, and then proceeded to have sex that most people would view as strange. I don't personally care what anyone does in the bedroom, but When there's nothing more to you than which person you put your male parts in, while on which drug, it makes you seem really, really boring.
Was it disgusting? Could I not put it down? Of course not, the absolute grotesqueness of it all left me curious for the next page. It simply didn't give me what I was looking for. There was a page or two here and there that had some philosophical wisdom, but for the most part, this book made my brain sad. Sep 09, Hanaa rated it it was amazing Shelves: I've already read this and I've been wanting to reread it since the first time I read it a few years back.
I love music memoir and reading about the excess and hedonism is addictive; I can never get enough. I'm teetering between 4 and 5 stars for this one.
