I really enjoyed this book. It gave a wonderful characterization of Christie, describing her residences, her likes and dislikes, and how she felt about her books and things in general. To my amazement I found that she was a very shy and modest person, which lasted throughout her life even in death.
This book is a must for any Christie fan!!
This book, however, does a fairly good, though I don't believe, comprehensive, job of putting Loretta Young's very long and successful career into perspective. He goes off track about other actors and their films, more than the focus on Loretta. You don't get much on the personal either. So its okay, but if your looking for alot information you won't find it here.
This book is based on interviews with Laura Bush's friends. It reveals friendships that are full of caring, insight, wit, loyalty and sincerity. Laura is an authentic, thoughtful and loving friend as you will learn. She has remained close to her childhood friends throughout her life and no matter what.
In reading this book, your also learn that Laura Bush, loves to clean. I found that we share a love for Clorox and Windex. As another reviewer wrote, "Now, when something around here needs cleaning, I think of Laura's enthusiasm. I find that it is much easier and more fun to tackle cleaning with enthusiasm than to go through it with a dismal attitude."
I liked Laura Bush before I read this book, we share several similarities: we are both only children and we both love to read. This book was an insightful read about a "lovely, witty and gracious" First Lady. She truly is a First Class, First Lady.
This book was such a good read. I really didn't know what to expect, you actually feel quite sorry for Ponzi in the end. He had such good intentions, but you know what they say about "good intentions".
From start to finish I just couldn't put this book down.
Michael Deaver takes us to the heart and soul of Nancy Reagan. He takes us back to the beginning when she met her "Ronnie" to facing his cruel fate of Alzheimer's, learning all the way about how she possibly felt, looked and handled or didn't handle events and situations. But all the while serving as grand protector of her "Ronnie".
If your looking for a down to earth approach to learning about the woman behind the man then this is the book for you.
