I had reservations about listening to Jerry's perspective on the events that happened to his and Dean's relationship. I find Jerry's kind of humor grating after awhile so I couldn't understand how Dean put up with Jerry for 10 years. But Jerry draws you into the heart of their story and you gain a much clearer insight of their electrifying chemistry and love for each other. I now have a new found respect for Jerry and his genius and can see him now as a gifted flawed unique being. The narrator is amazing, seamlessly capturing Dean's soft sexy tone and Jerry's voice in all it's crazy nuances. This is one book I think is better to listen to than read as the narrator brings layers that I don't think I would have picked up from reading the book.
I have always had doubts about the official version of events we were given surrounding Natalie's death and I was never convinced that Robert Wagner was totally innocent. I was a big fan of Natalie Woods and I remember so clearly in her interviews how afraid she was of the water so it just didn't make sense that she would put herself at risk taking the dingy out late at night by herself.
Listening to Dennis Davern's story I at first was suspicious of his motives but as the book unfolds He and Marti Ruli present a much more convincing explanation of the events than the one we have been fed for so many years.
It starts out slow but then I was hooked and couldn't stop listening.
