I was so looking forward to reading this book. How could such a boring /uninteresting book be written about such a wonderful woman? It is less about Judi than about the contributors and about performances in which she has appeared. What a huge disappointment.

I am a fan of Dame Judi Dench which is why I bought the book. Although enjoyable it was disappointing in that it was different actors/directors opinions of Judi. It would have been of more interest to me to learn more personal anecdotes rather than all the references to her acting ability.As a fan I can see that for myself. The insights in to Judi's sense of humour with her practical jokes and 'running' gags between fellow actors (even in the middle of a performance) were more of the type of thing I expected. I look forward to the day she writes her own story in her own words.

Haven't been over impressed by this writer who like me adores Judi Dench. Didn't feel he delivered anything information that was not already available in the media. All the same, I still read anything I find on Judi although not necessarily anything written by Miller.

HASH(0x95a88a80) out of 5 stars A light but lovely read. 12 Mar. 2005
By S. Hebbron - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Essentially a collection of tributes from a wide ranging slice of the actresses peer group, all of whom adore her and admire her skill terribly. I really enjoyed learning a little more about Dame Judi, as famous as her face is, she is afterall still somewhat enigmatic. The writing is varied because of it's shared authorship but as such makes the book more challenging.

This is not a celebratory style that would work for anyone famous, the very fact it focuses on Dame Judi makes it more than tolerable. Had it been other stars it may not have been so easy to take nor to read. But it is lovely, like a few days in the company of Lionel and Jean (As time goes by).

HASH(0x95a88ad4) out of 5 stars In praise of Judi 7 Dec. 2006
By Beverley Strong - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This is a charming collection of tiny essays or vignettes, singing the praises of Dame Judi Dench, by her fellow actors, directors and producers. Her co workers have nothing but love and admiration for this lady who apparently is, as she has always appeared to me, a warm friendly, lovable and superbly talented woman. These snippets tell of her love of practical jokes and of upholding certain theatre traditions, some of her own devising, but also of her kindness and lack of "side" to younger and less famous actors. The stories span many years and show that her genuine warmth and humanity has not changed as her fame grew. I love this Dame and am sure that others would love to read this collection of tales as much as I did.

HASH(0x95b5a9a4) out of 5 stars A Celebration of Judi's Acting Career. 13 May 2007
By Barry Howell - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Those of us who enjoy reading about Judi's life will be a little disappointed,for this book deals mainly with her acting career.Her many friends in the profession have written amusing stories of their contact with her during various stage and film roles,which are quite entertaining and highlight their view of her as an individual.Judi Dench fans will,no doubt,find it quite an enjoyable read and well worth the price.

HASH(0x95a88d5c) out of 5 stars If you love Judi, you will love this book 3 Feb. 2010
By Capital One - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Anyone who has enjoyed Dame Judi Dench's work over the 40+ years will surely enjoy reading this book. In this book, many of Judi's co-workers, directors, and friends write their own personal views on Judi and what makes her so special. Read it, enjoy it, and get another glimpse into this remarkable artist's life and work.

By Dee - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Having been a great fan of Dame Judi Dench through her part in "As Time Goes By", I was most anxious to learn more about this lovely lady. The book I purchased ("Darling Judi: A Celebration of Judi Dench") arrived in excellent shape. The book arrived within the projected time frame and I am thrilled to have it for my book collection. Thank you to Amazon and to the seller for this marvelous book.
