Customer Review

on 25 October 2012
Not only was Richard Burton's life varied and interesting -he wrote about it all beautifully. Clearly he missed his true vocation in life and sadly, he knew it. Acting for him was a means to an end but there seemed to be little real fulfilment for him. It's when he sits down to write that he is most content - that and his voracious reading habit kept him sane in a whirlwind life of travel, yachts, hotels and all the shallow people he met along the way in the movie world of make-believe.
Despite the many gaps in the diary - sometimes unexplained - it is an enjoyable book which leaves a feeling of a life not only tragically cut short but of a life unfulfilled.
