Anmerkung des Herausgebers

Learn from a queer icon…

Get a behind-the-scenes tour of Jonathan Van Ness’s life before he stole the show on “Queer Eye.” Van Ness has always been so “Over the Top,” but his life hasn’t always been so gorgeous because of it: while growing up gay in the Midwest, he endured ridicule and abuse. Now, of course, he’s an icon for fashion and compassion, especially toward yourself. Revel in JVN’s story and advice.

Beschreibung

A laugh-and-cry-out-loud memoir from the beloved star of Netflix's Queer Eye, Jonathan Van Ness, sharing never before told, deeply personal stories of growing up gay, transforming pain into positivity, and embracing what makes you gorgeously different.

Who gave Jonathan Van Ness permission to be the radiant human he is today? No one, honey.

The truth is, it hasn't always been gorgeous for this beacon of positivity and joy.

Before he stole our hearts as the grooming and self-care expert on Netflix's hit show Queer Eye, Jonathan was growing up in a small Midwestern town that didn't understand why he was so . . . over the top. From choreographed carpet figure skating routines to the unavoidable fact that he was Just. So. Gay., Jonathan was an easy target and endured years of judgement, ridicule and trauma—yet none of it crushed his uniquely effervescent spirit.

Over the Top uncovers the pain and passion it took to end up becoming the model of self-love and acceptance that Jonathan is today. In this revelatory, raw, and rambunctious memoir, Jonathan shares never-before-told secrets and reveals sides of himself that the public has never seen. JVN fans may think they know the man behind the stiletto heels, the crop tops, and the iconic sayings, but there's much more to him than meets the Queer Eye.

You'll laugh, you'll cry, and you'll come away knowing that no matter how broken or lost you may be, you're a Kelly Clarkson song, you're strong, and you've got this.

    This made me love Jonathan so much more. His words about his past humanize him. He is an endless ball of sunshine but he is also so much more. I am glad I listened to his story. I highly recommend listening audiobook because he is the narrator!

    This book had a really interesting concept. It was an interesting exploration of jealousy in female friendships. I had a hard time connecting with the characters, though.

    Raw and beautiful. Jonathan shares deeply personal stories that he hopes will help LGTBQ+ young people. Every step of the way his humor and honesty shine a huge light on struggles that young people face and by the journey to self-love and self-care that are the essential antidotes. As a teacher, this book makes me know I've got to take my support for LGTBQ+ youth to a higher level and how massively important a caring community is.

    Sarahi:
    The reason why I read the book was because, at the start of the year, I set myself the goal to read all of the winners for the Goodreads 2019 Awards, this book was a part of them; knowing Queer Eye and loving Jonathan beforehand, (as well as a quarantine challenge), was the final reason for reading this book.
    I decided to listen to it when I found it in the app, and when I saw it was narrated by JVN I knew I had to put my hands on it.
    In my personal opinion, if you want to consume the book you should totally listen to the audiobook as you can literally hear JVN telling you his story, you can feel him more and makes it even more real. I am not going to rate this book since I have no right no rate his life, but I will say that telling his story to the world was something really brave, and I admire him for it.
    Reasons for reading this book:
    -May help you educate yourself about the LGBTQ+ community
    -Growing empathy
    -Getting to know that even famous people, are just people
    And as someone once great said: "Books cure the worst of human diseases: ignorance"
    PS: I gave it 5 stars since the app asks for rating the book so I can publish my review, but know that I still stand behind that I have absolutely no right to rate his story.

    This book was truly... OVER the top, but I suppose he was being true to himself. Hopefully, the early traumas he faced, are now only viewable from his rearview mirror.

  • (5/5)
    This book was so met ing I was looking forward to before really knowing what tipllopics and direction it was going to be going in. From the second I pressed play cause hunny I only read thru my ears these days I instantly felt such a connection, interest, and a safe place of hope. I know we all can't be Jonathan's but after the book I do had new outlook on how I ca be the BEST Anthony I can be!
