This review is from: The Secret Life of Marilyn Monroe (Paperback)
The author of this book is not a very coherent writer of the english language and there are plenty examples throughout the book of bad grammar and sentences that make no sense. What is most irritating though is the constant reference to 2nd hand 3rd hand and 4th hand sources. It gets to the point where it is ridiculous, what do i care what the daughter of a mental patient who stayed at the same hospital as marilyns mother thinks? Do i care what the friend of a son of a man who worked at the same studio as Marilyn for 2 weeks says she was like? Overall the sources lack credibility but the book does give a good idea of her drug dependency and insecurities but i cant say there is anything new or particularly interesting about this book.
