i love judy dench, a fabulous actor and quite witty. she has many stories to tell. i don't think i would read it again, but glad to have read it.
What a life!
So many humorous anecdotes!
The laughter wasn't extreme; it was very natural and a lot of it.
Say something about yourself!
While it's not read by Dame Judy, the voice is close enough and the feel is quite first person. Charming stories, told with the expected dignity, giving some insight into the inevitable neurotic side we all have.
Witty, informative, engaging.
I don't usually read memoirs.
Samantha Bond sounds so much like Judi Dench, that you forget it isn't Judi reading to you.
Wonderfully laugh-out-loud funny in places,and also very generous with emotion and appreciation for her friends and family.
It transports you into the world ot theater and film, with Judi Dench as your guide. Who better? I came away wanting to see much more theater, and more of Ms. Dench. It isn't gossipy, so if that's what you are seeking, look elsewhere. A class act.
