Enjoyable account but whatever happened to proof reading?
on 7 November 2013
This is an enjoyable enough account of the life of one of Britain's increasingly iconic TV actresses but is spoiled by some glaring inaccuracies. Sue obviously regards herself as something of a long established fan of Liverpool FC but somehow believes the dreadful Hillsborough tragedy, which she seeks to speak of with some authority, to have taken place at a league match between Sheffield Wednesday and Liverpool rather than an FA Cup semi final between Liverpool and Nottingham Forest. Hard to believe that any football supporter, let alone a self proclaimed Liverpool fan, could make such a mistake. A few pages later, when she refers to Sean Bean as a 'passionate Sheffield Wednesday fan' one really does have to wonder about the veracity of some of her accounts, as referring to die-hard 'Blades' fan Bean as a 'Wednesdayite' is almost on a par with discussing George Best's career at Manchester City! There also don't actually appear to be that many things she 'couldn't tell her mother' but otherwise it's okay although it has to be said that she's a much better actress than a writer.
