NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • In this thoughtful and revealing memoir, readers will accompany one of the world’s most recognizable women on her journey of self-discovery. “I have always felt that life is a solitary journey, that we are each on a train, riding through our hours, our days, our years. We get on alone, we leave alone, and the decisions we make as we travel on the train are our responsibility alone. . . .” A remarkable life story rooted in two different worlds,  Unfinished  offers insights into Priyanka Chopra Jonas’s childhood in India; her formative teenage years in the United States; and her return to India, where against all odds as a newcomer to the pageant world, she won the national and international beauty competitions that launched her global acting career. Whether reflecting on her nomadic early years or the challenges she has faced as she has doggedly pursued her calling, Priyanka shares her challenges and triumphs with warmth and honesty. The result is a book that is philosophical, sassy, inspiring, bold, and rebellious. Just like the author herself. From her dual-continent twenty-year-long career as an actor and producer to her work as a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador, from losing her beloved father to cancer to marrying Nick Jonas, Priyanka Chopra Jonas’s story will inspire a generation around the world to gather their courage, embrace their ambition, and commit to the hard work of following their dreams.

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.
