This is not a novel, it is a memoir. I enjoyed it. When you see her on TV and in People magazine it is easy to think "she is beautiful and talented and lucky". But what you don't see is how hard she and her family worked, the risks they took, the sacrifices they made, and difficult decisions. I can't imagine working in Canada M-F then flying to India to shoot a movie for one day then flying back to Canada for Monday shooting for series- 15+ hour days. Amazing. Her work for UNICEF is remarkable, she seems really to want to help others, especially girls and women in India who are not valued in society or families. Now I want to watch some of her movies.

Priyanka Chopra's Unfinished is a detailed look into her rise to global fame, all the way from her first ever move to American in 3rd grade, up to around her wedding in 2018. She reveals the building blocks that made her into the movie star that she is today, and the lesser known obstacles that she faced on the way.
If you like Priyanka Chopra as a person and have enjoyed her work, I think you will enjoy this novel. It was definitely interesting to get to learn in great detail about her childhood and how that shaped her into the person she is today, along with what was going on behind the scenes of some of the most famous movies/tv shows she shot. Her story is one of a lot more depth and detail than anyone could have possibly known from the surface, and was worth the read. However, I didn't find this memoir to be extraordinary or mindblowing. Her writing style is very comparable to how she presents herself over the internet and in interviews; it leans towards the more formal side, but rather than eclipsing her personality, it enhances it. And while this is writing that is completely supposed to reflect Chopra's own voice, there were times when the formal writing was juxtaposed with more modern internet slang or abbreviations which didn't quite seem to fit the flow of the novel. Overall, this was an enjoyable book that I have very few complaints about, but it did not drastically alter my (already positive) opinion of her, or leave me particularly wowed.

I don't watch movies and I'm not into beauty Pageants. Yet, Priyanka Chopra's memoir held my interest. If all that she writes is true, she has indeed led a very colorful life and would make a great role model for other young women.
