David Niven was not always a star. He had to go away and learn his trade in "B" movies before being allowed to enter the big...

2.0 out of 5 stars A Kindle Balloon
This, as widely described, is a very engaging, very human biography. The book is fully reviewed elsewhere. This is a review of the Kindle version, and how disappointing that the publishers are prepared to put forward an edition for which they would be disowned by their mothers, had it been published on paper. The proof reading is terrible, inexcusable. Footnotes appear at...

This review is from: The Moon's a Balloon (Paperback)
I really enjoyed this book and have to say that in a few places I laughed out loud! The golden age of the movies brought to life with humour. The realisation also that David Niven could so easily have turned out a 'right wrong un' if his childhood was anything to go by! I can see why he was a bit of a lad in Hollywood with some of the hellraisers.

This review is from: The Moon's a Balloon (Kindle Edition)
A good read with some comic moments, giving an insight to life before and after WW2 though from a rather middle class perspective, some of the words used now have a totally different meaning to what they did when the book was written which one has to keep reminding oneself of. If you like autobiographies then this one will not disappoint.
