    One thought on “Elizabeth Taylor: The Lady, the Lover, the Legend: 1932-2011: A New Biography”

    1. The worst biography I ve ever read Mistakes were obvious, there were errors in summaries of film plots and the worst of all I had the feeling, that the author has some sort homo phobia fetish Hard to say, cause he himself seems undecided The greatest pearl of all Liz s mother was lesbian, because she had short hair Geez Are we back in 1950 s All throughout nearly 300 pages I felt like I was reading a tabloid Of the worst kind There was so much spite in this, so much envy and jealousy and cynicis [...]

    2. Trashy but entertaining Bret doesn t seem overly concerned with backing up his version of events with any sort of proof, but I imagine the book might be less interesting if he had been He claims to be a fan, but is quite happy to assume the worst when it suits him Still, Liz s character manages to shine through I d recommend this for a holiday pool side read.

    3. If you want to read a book which is only full of the good stuff about an idol, this isn t the one for you Included are many stories and quotes from other actresses such as Joan Crawford and Marlene Dietrich that put Elizabeth in a negative light I didn t find this off putting however and it just made me like the personality of Elizabeth even she didn t care what she did or what people said about her I found the book extremely informative and it sounds quite honest and genuine too because of the [...]

    4. One long, catty gossip column seemed as if the real goal of this author was to let the readers in on Hollywood s fiercely guarded list of gay or bisexual actors A lot of the information was entertaining and interesting, and certainly did add depth to Elizabeth s bio, but the author seemed to carry a rather critical tone throughout the book Don t know if I would recommend this book.

    5. Super boring, just rattles off historical facts with no attention to the person behind the celebrity Irritating to find that every weekday was preceded by The, The Saturday, the Sunday, and his patent dislike for Elizabeth Taylor He stands on the morally high ground judging everyone in her life Just write the biography please I can make up my own mindez

    6. It was so trashy and poorly written, but because Miss Taylor was such a character, I couldn t put it down Only someone who is fascinated with Taylor should read it It should not be treated as a way to learn about the icon, but like a nearly 300 page gossip magazine dedicated to her.

    7. A fun trashy read you can finish in a few hours The narrative is mainly hearsay tabloid gossip but who cares, its entertainment great for reading at the beach
