Loved it! ( )

I was disappointed that the Michelle Williams movie "My Week With Marilyn" treated Monroe so superficially (although to be fair, the movie was about the young guy, not Monroe)so I wanted to find a book that would be a psychological study of her and not a movie star bio. This was the wrong choice! Imagined dialogue, over the top conjecture, yuck. Didn't get past page 2. ( )

An immensely tragic story of a truly amazing woman. Mental illness is so real and can affect everyone, even Marilyn Monroe. ( )

This is one of the best biographies I have ever read (not that I have ready many), but I have no complaints. The author takes you on a journey through Marilyn’s life from beginning to after her death. He focuses on everything I wanted to know about: her mother, childhood, men in her life and the movies. I felt that I got a complete picture of Marilyn’s life and I found it absolutely fascinating!

I now fully understand the fascination with Marilyn Monroe! She went through so much heartache and setbacks in her life, and yet she is was one of the biggest movies stars of all time. The men in her life treated her like property, they tried to control her, and some even attributed to her paranoia. And yet she kept on trying, she kept on looking for love and I wish with my whole heart that she would have found it in time.

At the back of this book there are images of Marilyn and the people in her life – I found these very interesting and I loved seeing everyone that was talked about in the book.

I also found the writing thoughtful and the author presented the facts to me, so I could form my own opinion. The author also tried to be fair to everyone that affected Marilyn’s life and I came out feeling that this was a job well done!

I couldn’t help but completely falling under Marilyn’s spell while reading this novel – I even watched a few old movies and started Tumblr’ing. So count me among one of Marilyn Monroe’s fans and I will definitely be reading more about her. And even more biographies, I can only hope that they are as great as this one was! ( )

I've read several books on Marilyn Monroe and often come away feeling like I'm missing a lot. Not in this book. The research here is better done than any other book and the author documents everything instead of relying on gossip or "I know because so and so told so and so who told so and so". If he couldn't document the story he said it was out there but there was no proof. This was especially helpful with the tie-in with the Kennedy family. Some things are true but there is much more that is just guess, gossip or down-right lies. A lot of the lies came from Marilyn but she was a serious drug-addict with both manic-depression and paranoid-schizophrenia (documented if mostly ignored). Marilyn was much like her mother who lived almost all of her adult life in a sanitarium.

If you would like a chance to cut through a lot of the gossip and misconceptions on Marilyn this is the book for you. ( )

Though Taraborrelli is an indefatigable gossip hound, he's less good at analysing Marilyn's inflammatory appeal.
