And Furthermore

From the moment Judi Dench appeared as a teenager in the York Mystery Plays, it was clear that acting would be her career. Trained at London's Central School of Speech and Drama it was her performance in her twenties as Juliet in Franco Zeffirelli's memorable Old Vic production that turned her into a star. In the theatre since she has played every classic role from Titania (three times, most recently in 2010) to Cleopatra.

Publisher's Summary

From the moment Judi Dench appeared as a teenager in the York Mystery Plays it was clear that acting would be her career. Trained at London's Central School of Speech and Drama it was her performance in her 20s as Juliet in Franco Zeffirelli's memorable Old Vic production that turned her into a star. In the theatre since, she has played every classic role from Titania (three times, most recently in 2010) to Cleopatra.

She first became a household name via television, thanks initially to a sit-com, A Fine Romance, in which she played alongside the actor Michael Williams, whom she married in 1971.

She has since made eight series of another sit-com, As Time Goes By (with Geoffrey Palmer), as well as plays and classic serials, Middlemarch and Cranford.

In the cinema, her films have ranged from Ladies In Lavender, opposite Maggie Smith, through Notes on a Scandal with Cate Blanchett to Shakespeare in Love, in which she played Queen Elizabeth, a role that gained her a Hollywood Oscar. But it is her role as 'M' in six James Bond films, beginning with Goldeneye in 1995, that has gained her worldwide recognition. This book is, however, much more than a career record.

    "And Furthermore"

    Shame that the book is read by someone else. I would have preferred Judy's voice. Kristina

    "Disappointed"

    I didn't realise that the Book was read by someone other than the great Lady herself. It was a big shock, almost like taking a big bite out of a beautifully ripe strawberry and tasting pickled onion. I gave up after a very short time because I missed Judy Dench, her story lacked the silk of her voice, her nuances and timing. For me this proved to be a waste of money however I would consider buying the written version.

    "A must listen biography"

    I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this biography. Ideal for anyone who has an interest in the theatre and the greats who walk the boards not to mention a big dollop of Dame Judi's dry wit! Pure pleasure.

    "Poor show Judi !"

    Narration ? a good Dench impersonator, unintended? Hard to say.

    Content ? Initially I thought this a spoof ...it becomes cloying and annoying....ever so very Jolly Hockeysticks. Who in their 70s still refers to their parents as Mummy & Daddy? if you like listening to the imperious judgemental luvvie-nes of this artist, then this is the book for you. Amazed at what seems like fickle and hypocritical opinions ? e.g. I loathed Mr. X, then one day he helped me and we?ve simply been the best of friends since! We are told that Dench hates audiences knowing WHY she did a role, but she bores with useless info like what she drinks or does before a show. We WANT to know WHY you do a role! For an actor I am amazed at Dench?s limited vocabulary in describing experiences and people ? e.g. overuse of the words ?absolutely? and ?thrilling?.

    "CV?"
    Any additional comments?

    This book read like a CV, a chronology of roles through the years. It lacked any emotion or personality. I was very disappointed, as I admire Dame Judy Dench as a tremendous actor and expected to gain some insight into the person through this audio book.
