Over the Top: A Raw Journey to Self-Love

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Jonathan Van Ness

Narrated By: Jonathan Van Ness

Publisher: HarperAudio

Date: September 2019

Duration: 5 hours 51 minutes

Summary:

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.

    What a bold, honest, authentic and inspirational story and related by the author. I felt like he was a friend sitting on my sofa telling me his story. My heart was touched by so many of his life events happy and sad. I’m so glad this book spoke to me and I chose to make it my first audio book! Wishing Jonathan nothing but continued success and for him to keep inspiring others. I’d love to see his standup!

    I loved this audiobook. JVN reads it himself which makes me think all the folks who just read the book themselves will really be missing out. His narration brings verve to the book to say the least. The book is great. I laughed full blown out loud many times and cried a bit too but life has tragedies as well as triumphs. All in all, it’s a fantastic book. I give it 5 stars for sure. And it’s so heart warming to see JVN achieve such success! He certainly deserves it.

    Funny, inspiring and heart-warming. This book takes you through a journey and helps you to understand how to love yourself and get on with life. Some points of the book get very dark, but written with true honesty. Having Jonathan narrate the book as well gives this title a 5-star rating.

    An honest listen that can truly be raw at times and yet thanks to JVN's mix of humour and unique storytelling style makes it easy to absorb and digest. His honest accounts, peppered with his humourous asides and passion, makes this a very interesting and uplifting listening experience I am glad I had.
