Book Description

The most ambitious and personal account ever written about Hollywood's most gracious star-Audrey Hepburn by Barry Paris is a "moving portrayal" (The New York Times Book Review) that truly captures the woman who captured our hearts...

With the insights of family and friends who never before spoke to a Hepburn biographer-and never-before-published photographs-Paris has created an in-depth portrait of the actress, from her childhood in Nazi-occupied Europe, through her legendary career, and into her UN ambassadorship.

4.0 out of 5 stars An exceptional introduction to Audrey 22 Jan. 2005
By Sarah
I ordered this book from Amazon as way of introduction to Audrey, not knowing much about the woman whose style is continually referenced to in magazines and whose films are frequently shown on television. With a growing interest in Audrey, both in her acting career and her personal life, I found this book an engrossing way to discover more about this fascinating woman's life. Paris covers all aspects of Audrey's childhood, film career and relationshps, from her life-shaping experience of the Second World War, to her two divorces, children and admirable work for UNICEF. While doing so with great respect for a woman who was the epitome of grace and elegance, he doesn't fail to provide the true stories from behind the scenes of the movies and her own personal difficulties. This book is not just an overview of her career, but also an exploration into what made her character. If you want a comprehensive and honest account of Audrey's life, that will equip you with all the knowledge necesssary to become another Audrey buff, then buy this book!

3.0 out of 5 stars Quite recommendable 8 Mar. 2004
By A Customer
I am sure all Audrey Hepburn fans will like this biography since it tells her life from the very beginning to the tragic end. However, I feel it is not a too original biography. Mostly it merely lists up dates and quotes from other people, instead of trying to analyse or understand the complex person of Audrey Hepburn better.
Still, I do recommend it for everyone who likes Audrey Hepburn and would like to get to know a little bit more about her and learn some funny "back stage" stories.

4.0 out of 5 stars A fanatic's Impression 30 Sept. 2003
I recieved this book as a gift, and was thrilled, being a Hepburn fan. The author goes into huge detail about everything, her childhood, her parents, the war, and her eventual move into showbiz, almost down to what she ate for breakfast every morning. While being very entertaining, I did feel that there was too much embellishment. There is only so much one can remember without having to go back and forth throughout the course of reading to find out who is who. If you have a lot of time on your hands, I seriously recomend it, but you must percevere. It is worth the read, but only for those worthy.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Have! 26 Mar. 2002
I've searched over and over for the best AH's biography and i've come to the conclusion that this is it. this book was even better than a novel. i couldn't let it go till i finished it.
it contains every part of her life (well it actually starts when AH is fifteen years old).
It describes everything! From this book you can understand how AH thought and behaved and what the people that surrounded her thought.
The pictures are all in black and white and are great.
It contains her filmography with many details.
My point is that if you get this book you would have had all the knowledge you needed in order to understand and love even more Audrey Hepburn.

4.0 out of 5 stars Worthy work 8 Aug. 2008
By M. J. Saxton VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The huge amount of detail in this book can make it heavy going. The early chapters on Audrey Hepburn's childhood, war experiences and early training are real page turners and the latter chapters on her work for UNICEF are totally gripping. Somewhat sad to say, but the chapters about her film career require real wading through, the tone of them being so similar - and everyone is always so nice which is not really what a reader wants from a biography. A little more structured analysis of her technique would be useful.

However, the book is more than worth reading for the section about her life after movies and her UNICEF trips, when it becomes truly moving and shows what a wonderful and committed person Audrey Hepburn was.
