    Much better written than I expected.

    This is a unbiased biography. She is treated as though she was a person and not just a movie star. I expected a rehash of old scandals but I found the story of a complex woman who had some "warts" and some wonderful qualities as well as her well recognized looks.

    A juicy, vicious insight into a staggeringly beautiful and shallow woman

    This biography of the woman we are all curious about through the decades of her fame was well worth reading yet quite sad. Lurid on its detailed gossip, if I was Elizabeth I would squirm to have my life exposed like that. Despite her complete lack of insight and her repeated choice of poor and unsuitable mates, the cruelties of those husband(s) using her and abusing her is still hurtful. Their bisexual inclinations and the unmasking of many of Hollywood's other closet gays makes for interesting anecdotes. Here is a woman blessed with extrordinary looks, money, fame and power who couldn't get wean herself away from a bottle of booze or a bottle of pills. What a waste. I can't feel sorry for her -- she never tried to change the pathos of her life -- she just tried to justify it without ever taking any responsibility for her willful frailties. Elizabeth is not a particularly likeable woman here, although because of the melodrama she will always be a fascinating one.
