REVIEW BY DOUGLAS J. ALLEN (Lecturer in Social Sciences, Motherwell College, Scotland)

Thomas Christie's pioneering account of Liv Tyler's film career to date is a truly impressive product, combining a wide-ranging knowledge of the film world with a strong, readable narrative style. His meticulous approach has resulted in a work that is factually informative, while his judgements and opinions are scrupulously fair and even-handed. For anyone looking for an authoritative account of Liv Tyler's film career, drawn from an impressively wide-ranging selection of international sources, moving easily between the worlds of high art and popular culture, this volume can be thoroughly recommended.

FROM THE INTRODUCTION

It seems difficult today to imagine a time when the name Liv Tyler (1977-) could be met with a lack of recognition. Yet scarcely a decade ago, it would have been difficult for anyone to have anticipated the sheer scale of her meteoric rise to worldwide fame in the film world. As we will see over the course of this book, Liv Tyler's acting career has been remarkably diverse, encompassing a wide variety of different genres - prominent roles in seventeen films throughout the course of just over ten years. Thanks to her prolific and meticulously crafted body of work, she has clearly illustrated an increasingly versatile range of acting skills through her acute emotional observation and constant eagerness to experiment.

Her good humour, decisively down-to-earth attitude and apparent willingness never to take herself too seriously have made her not only one of the most popular young actresses in America, but arguably one of the most universally well-liked public figures of her generation. Yet in parallel to her oft-attributed reputation as one of the most straight-thinking and unpretentious performers working in the film industry today, it is significant to note that Liv Tyler has constantly expressed a desire in press interviews to keep her personal life private and as separate as possible from her well-publicised appearances in films.

    At last a proper examination of Liv Tyler the actress by someone who has taken the time to view her work and give sensible opinions of what she has achieved rather than what you read on don't read in the tabloids. The author has spent a long time looking at all her work and anylysing it. A good introduction to her work and recommended for those with an interest in all things hollywood and acting. I would suggest of use to students studying media/film/acting. Its Print on demand but they were quick with my copy and quality is good.
