    One thought on “Our Life on Ice: The Autobiography

    1. I m a huge fan of Torvill and Dean and was excited to read their autobiography While I enjoyed it for the information and background it gave me, I found it difficult to stay engaged in the book due to the style of the writing Most chapters concerned specific topics, such as fame and choreography, covering everything from that topic during their entire career in that chapter That meant the story jumped backwards and forwards in their career a lot Routines such as Mack and Mabel and Barnum weren t [...]


    2. 4.5 StarsBefore starting this book, my knowledge of Torvill and Dean was very limited, I remember as a child being forced to watch their 94 Olympics performance because they were good based on their Olympic gold my family s understatement, not mine and just not being interestedring in mind I couldn t have remembered the gold medal as I was only born 2 weeks after Of course I have seen them on Dancing on Ice, and even saw them live at a Dancing on Ice tour but I knew very little, but was in agree [...]




    3. I used to love Torvill and Dean in their prime and quite enjoyed Skating On Ice the television series They wrote an autobiography some years ago and this book is obviously an update but I found it really disappointing not to say boring It added nothing to my knowledge of either of them except to emphasise how arrogant Dean can be.


    4. Enjoyable read covering the rise of the two skaters who I fell in love with as a child and avidly followed their career from their Olympic win Really glad to see they came back to Dancing on Ice


    5. I was excited when I first heard about this book and couldn t wait to read it As I wasn t even born when Torvill Dean were at the height of their career, Dancing on Ice was the first time I heard about them I absolutely loved the show, and was gutted when it ended earlier this year 2014 Before DOI I wouldn t have thought of even watching ice skating, or dancing yet the show opened up for me and many people around the UK a whole new thing to watch, I m yet to actually go on the ice myself though, [...]


    6. Fascinating to look behind the glamour to the real hard work, discipline and determination it takes to be an elite athlete at such a challenging sport I learnt a lot and my admiration for the pair grew as I read about their lives Tey do not gloss over problems or difficulties making this real.I wonder if they wold have been successful with other skating partners We will never know


    7. As someone that took up ice skating at the age of 14 in 1979, having wanted to learn for a few years, I have been following Torvill and Dean and their careers since about 1978 This was a very interesting book for me because most of the events they write about, I actually witnessed or watched on TV and went to all their ice shows before Dancing On Ice The main thing to say is that it is really easy to read but sometimes doesn t go into detail For me, this doesn t matter as I read the other books [...]


    8. I loved this book as I am partial to ice skating I have watched this couple forever every time they have skated They won a gold medal in the 1984 in the Winter Olympics with a perfect score They then turned pro and skated with Dancing Life on Ice They have skated together for 40 years but are not a couple They have plans for the future to ice dance This was a very lovely book about a subject I love.


    9. This was a great book full of entertaining stories about two people who seem like great individuals I loved reading about their two Olympic experiences My one criticism is that occasionally there would be random references to them in third person in the midst of one or both of them speaking to us readers in first person but that doesn t really take away from the book s enjoyability, IMO I read it in one afternoon and would recommend it to any fan of TD or ice dance in general.


    10. I watched Torvill and Dean in every Olympics and they are the most beautiful ice dancers I have ever seen They deserve every medal they won.


    11. Despite my love of Dancing on Ice and my ice show addiction, i ve never been that bothered by Torvill and Dean, but this was an interesting look at their lives and partnership.
