1.0 out of 5 stars What a disappointment!, 3 Oct. 2007
This review is from: True Grace: The Life and Times of an American Princess (Hardcover)
Being a big fan of Grace Kelly, I pre-ordered this book and waited expectantly for its arrival.

The book itself is very elegant with a lovely typeface and, erm.....

Well, if you've never read another book on Grace, this book will be very interesting.

If you know something about her already or if you have read any of the other books written about her, this book will be a big disappointment.

We all know she felt hemmed-in in her marriage to Rainier and dreamt of going back to acting. This book talks to a couple of extra people and doesn't give any further real news.

We all know she had romances with her co-stars before her marriage. This book does give a bit of detail of one or two that I wasn't sure of/didn't know about, including after her marriage. (I won't spoil it for you here - it's the only new information in the whole book).

Instead, it seems a re-hash of all the other books, with constant quotes from Robert Lacey's excellent 'Grace' and Gwen Robyns' 'Princess Grace', among others.

For a better read, I would heartily recommend either the afore-mentioned book by Robert Lacey, or J Randy Tamborelli's 'Once Upon a Time...'

After reading all the blurb on this book before it was published, I can't help but feel let down..
