5.0 out of 5 stars astonishing revelation, 2 Jan. 2011
This review is from: Dream Lovers: The Magnificent Shattered Lives of Bobby Darin and Sandra Dee (Hardcover)
I am reading the book 'Dream Lovers' (a Christmas Present) and I am finding it amazing! I have been a Darin fan since 1959 when I aquired a copy of 'Darin at the Copa' and in recent years, thanks to the internet I can watch clips of him in action. I have a copy of the DVD 'Seeing is Believing' and I thought what a terrible title! But when I had watched it I couldn't believe the man's talent. The revelations in the book make his talent more unbeleiveable,it seems like everything was stacked up against him and everthing he summounted to achieve world fame and respect among his peers. The strange relationship between him and Sandra Dee is brought alive by his son Dodd. Here was a match of a terrifically talented all round entretainer and a mediocre (albeit successful for a time), engineered film star. On the balance of it no wonder the relationship failed. But no spoilers... I suggest every Darin fan reads the book,and decide for themselves. Excellent - 5 stars!
