    This novel also has one true fault, and the fault is that underneath all of the well-researched facts and trivia and all the information and precision found in this biography, the biographer is simply not a very good writer. Biographies are generally written in a semi-formal tone, and certainly not a conversational one. For the most part Harris stuck to one voice, but there were times when he would slip from formal into dead casual, or add in some turn of phrase that struck discordant and spoile This novel also has one true fault, and the fault is that underneath all of the well-researched facts and trivia and all the information and precision found in this biography, the biographer is simply not a very good writer.

But I did learn much about Audrey that I presume to be true, this book being the only one on the subject of her life I’ve ever read. The fact I finished it also says something for its lucidity, I suppose, as half-reading biographies is a bad habit of mine.

    If I had to list my favorite actresses of all time, Audrey Hepburn would be high on the list. Not because she made lots of movies because she really didn't. But she starred in several of my all-time favorite movies. My Fair Lady, Breakfast at Tiffany's, Sabrina, Wait Until Dark, Roman Holiday all make the list. I found this at the library and grabbed it. Although I will admit I would have preferred reading the book written by Audrey Hepburn's son.

Still, it was written in a good comprehensive manner.

    Okay, I must be honest that I "really enjoy" reading about anything about Audrey Hepburn. This biography felt a little further away from the biographies with up-close sources that I've read, like the one by her son, Sean Ferrer, but I still enjoyed it. Written in large-print format, I originally thought I was going to cruise through the book, but the paper-thin 400+ pages took me forever to get through. I appreciate Audrey's kind and gentle nature, her love of children and her desire to use her Okay, I must be honest that I "really enjoy" reading about anything about Audrey Hepburn.

    One of my favorite people of all time. So selfless + caring. The biography itself was not the most well written, but to be honest the content made up for it.

    This book was really amazing because she has alot of great life lessons quotes that can relate to me in way shape or form. This book talks about how her whole life was either if it was good or even bad at some points. Audrey was an amazing actress and a ballerina. Audrey had alot of goals and strived to conquer all of them a some point and time. She was a great person and will be remembered for her coreers.

    I enjoyed learning more about Audrey Hepburn. However, this book reads like the author simply read gossip columns and magazines of the time period, rather than a thoughtful biography of an amazing life. There appeared to be no first hand accounts or interviews. I would have given it a much higher rating had there been a personal touch to the book.

    A well researched account of Audrey's life. Harris seemed to focus a lot on her superficiality, I'd like to read another biography to confirm this and a few other things. It was well written and I enjoyed the book that I read it rather quickly.

    Ehh. It was alright. Not much info one couldn't get on Wikipedia. Talked about the movies she made, who she made them with. Very little insider info. One bit of interesting info was her relationship with Givenchy, and that he created the first celebrity fragrance, for her!

    A good over view of her life. Harris did not gloss over the negatives but did accentuate the positive side. The combination of writer and narrator makes the audiobook was almost like listening to a friend tell her life story.

    Completed via audio book. I love Audrey Hepburn and I did learn facts several things about her life I did not know. The tone of the book was not as compelling as I had expected.

    Very nice bio on a very special lady. Outlines her accomplishments outside of being a film star.
