When it comes to bios, by the time I am about half way done and I am still interested, it's a good sign!
This book was not a boring collection of dry names and dates.
This is an audiobook narrated by Julie Andrews herself and I think its making all the difference. I could listen to her read the phone book - her voice is so melodious and appealing!
It’s an autobiography of her early years, which is interesting, but I have to hope that she writes a followup of her later years because I don’t want to start from scratch again to hear the rest.
My only complaint is the haphazard musical interludes between chapters – it’s so sporadic! What’s up with that?
I enjoy this type of Anecdotal Celebrity Biography, it feels more personal than the typical bio format of: born here, went to school here, caught a break, got married, had 3 kids, had dinner with my celebrity friends, The End.
First hand anecdotes and recollections are much more enjoyable to read.
Overall, the book reminded me a lot of Betty White’s book “If You Ask Me”, and my feeling on this book are the same: If you are a fan you’ll love it, if you are not then don’t bother.
