This review is from: Home: A Memoir of My Early Years (Hardcover)
'Home' is a brilliantly written memoir with many touching and powerful moments. Not necessarily something general audiences would expect of Julie Andrews. Her mannerism, her aura and beauty often make people think she's got an actual high class background which is far from the truth.
The book is very inspiring, it tells the story of a little girl with enormous talent who made it really big -- a success that was well deserved. Her journey from poverty to stardom had many difficult moments and if it's possible, it evokes even more admiration for the Dame.
Especially classy is the way she refuses to put anybody down and treats everyone with respect, however she remains honest all along which does convey the hurt some people and events managed to inflict on her. It's a great read and I highly recommend it to everyone.
