The Meaning of Mariah Carey Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
It took me a lifetime to have the courage and the clarity to write my memoir. I want to tell the story of the moments - the ups and downs, the triumphs and traumas, the debacles and the dreams - that contributed to the person I am today. Though there have been countless stories about me throughout my career and very public personal life, it’s been impossible to communicate the complexities and depths of my experience in any single magazine article or a 10-minute television interview. And even then, my words were filtered through someone else’s lens, largely satisfying someone else’s assignment to define me.
This book is composed of my memories, my mishaps, my struggles, my survival, and my songs. Unfiltered. I went deep into my childhood and gave the scared little girl inside of me a big voice. I let the abandoned and ambitious adolescent have her say, and the betrayed and triumphant woman I became tell her side.
Writing this memoir was incredibly hard, humbling and healing. My sincere hope is that you are moved to a new understanding, not only about me, but also about the resilience of the human spirit.

It's so poorly written and constructed, I can only convey how frustrating a read this is, by saying (spoiler) Mariah reveals that, at age 12, she narrowly escaped being sold into prostitution. That's a harrowing chapter. Next chapter, her biggest problem is no-one ever styled her hair.
To Mariah's credit, the preface states time jumps will occur. The problem is, it comes at the cost of a cohesive narrative structure.
Save your money and read her Wiki pages. This is a huge let down. If the book improves, this opening quarter gives no indication that will occur.

This is unique to all other autobiographies, in that Ms Carey has a beautiful, illustrative penchant for writing— something almost all “celebrities” do not have. This memoir is unlike any other "celebrity autobiography". It is a beautiful, poignant, illustrious piece of literary art, delving into the complexities of society and being human. Mariah Carey, being the greatest songwriter of all time, is by no surprise an excellent storyteller – she exhibits an effortless literary prowess. Her writing and literary artistry, are gorgeously and gloriously enchanting. Her words are lyrical, flowing effortlessly yet meticulously beautiful, smooth like butter, melodic, poignant, illustrious. It’s autobiographical non-fiction but written so picturesquely, savouring, deconstructing, and animating moments from the past. I laughed and cried whilst reading this book. I feel empowered. I am in awe of Ms Carey’s strength. I feel her power.
Thank you, Mariah, for this incredible piece of literature and for sharing your talent with the world. This is an important and extraordinary memoir that everyone should read.
