Julie Andrews is amazing

Julie Andrews has written a very interesting autobiography of her life. She started singing at a very young age on stage. She kept going because of her phenomenal voice and beauty. She had a great many leading men that were truly interesting. She's had a really nice life except for the operation on her throat which destroyed her wonderful voice. This was a nice read about a nice lady.

Julie Andrews enjoyed acting as well as singing, and she starred in movies and on the broadway stage. One of her regrets was not being selected to star in My Fair Lady, which she starred in on Broadway. But she was given a real break to her movie career by being chosen to be Mary Poppins, where she totally endeared herself to all her fans.

    meh

    while it is an intrresting story, it jumps around, as if from thought to thought without connection quite often.

    AND?

    What happened to her first marriage.?
    As we as Pop Etc?
    Much too much detail. Ended abruptly. Left you shaking yput head as to what just happened
    I had to push myself to finish it.
    Always loved Julie but discovered a little too needy side. Maybe, it's just the way all actors are.
    To me wasn't worth my reading. Sorry

    Left me hungry for much more...

    While somewhat interesting; though not a particularly "literary" style; it just plain stopped. I actually double checked to see if my Nook had skipped a dozen chapters or so. Her back story was new to me; but her long film career goes completely unexplored. Felt like I paid for a seven course meal; and was only served a canape.

    Sort of boring

    I found it sort of choppy, kind of boring, and it ended in a very abrupt manner. I was definitely disappointed.

    very disappointing

    i read the Helen Mirren book at the same time. I thought the Mirren would be a little grim but it was womderfull. It was just the opposite with the Julie Andrews book
