Author: Robert Matzen
Format: Paperback (Uncorrected Proof)
Rating (out of 5): 📘📘📘📘
I've been a fan of Audrey Hepburn's work since I was very young. I remember growing up with her movies and loving her style. This book isn't the first I've read about her life, not even the first that's touched on her childhood. However, this book provides such a unique perspective.
Before reading this book, I was unaware of the experiences that she'd had during the war. Which made this book incredibly appealing to me.
The depth that this book goes into was incredible. It provides an interesting and honest look into the early life of one of the worlds most loved stars, and the inclusion of photographs adds a whole extra layer.
I found myself falling into this book, wanting to know more and more.
I've always had an interest in wartime experiences, which made this book even more compelling to me, and I was interested in the parallels between Audrey and Anne Frank.
This book gave a lot of information and was written in an interesting way, that kept me turning the pages.
I'd say, even if you've read other books about Audrey's life. This one is definitely worth a read as it goes into areas that a lot of other books hadn't touched.
