It was one of the most famous romances of the 20th century - Europe's most eligible bachelor, Prince Rainier of Monaco, and America's most beautiful movie star, the Academy Award-winning actress Grace Kelly, fell in love against the backdrop of the closest thing the modern world has to a magical kingdom, the French Riviera's Principality of Monaco.
Told with affection and humor, and with the unprecedented cooperation of Prince Rainier III and his children, Prince Albert, Princess Caroline, and Princess Stephanie, Grace of Monaco takes listeners beneath the surface glitz and the glamour of Monte Carlo for a never-to-be-forgotten portrait of the House of Grimaldi.
Would you try another book from Jeffrey Robinson and/or Jeffrey Robinson?
Probably not, this one was such a huge deception for me.
Would you ever listen to anything by Jeffrey Robinson again?
I don't think I'll take another chance, or at least I would make sure to read all the reviews before buying it.
What didn’t you like about Jeffrey Robinson’s performance?
Half the book is not even about Grace Kelly. I was expecting a real bio but I got the history of european politicians, the complete history of Monaco, the story of Aristote Onasis, an interview with prince Rainier... The title of the book is Grace Kelly : The true story. It should have been :The story of Monaco and its people and a few things about princess Grace.
You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?
The author is well informed, he seems credible.
