A good read,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Wish I Was There - I Was the Golden Girl of British Cinema…Then My Life Fell to Pieces. This is My Story (Kindle Edition)
I enjoyed this book and would recommend it. It gives a good account of Emily's life.
I only have two niggles.
1. The overuse of the word malaise. I understand that the book was centered around Emilys illness but I felt the word was used far more than was necessary and was the wrong word for what is a serious mental illness.
2. When Emily tells of leading men, male friends, acquaintances and the like, she writes that virtually everyone 'took a shine to her'. It was hard to believe that she noticed all the men fawning over her, yet hadn't realised Brad Pitt had asked her out. Twice. I'm not sure if this was her self confidence talking or because she was looking back on difficult times through rose tinted spectacles, but it meant that as I was reading I knew what was coming.
