Most of my ideas about Errol Flynn are based on reports and hearsay. This book exploded all the myths about the man. I found the book entertaining, and in the final few pages thought provoking.Flynn comes across as an honest man about his weaknesses and the mistakes that he made in his life. The early part of his life in New Guinea, and his journey across the world to London and finally to Hollywood certainly uncover a facet of his life that is not well known. Flynn writes with candour and humour, and at the end I felt sorry for the man that had achieved so much in terms of fame,success and wealth, yet seemed so unhappy with his lot, and died at such an early age of 59.
A good read that certainly cast a different light on a iconic character of the early 20th century. Well worth reading.
