remains somewhat elusive So no earth shattering revelations here I m afraid, but a nice read available in paperback and on Kindle This was an interesting perspective taken by a book about Marilyn Monroe in that it features a year in her life when she was only 20 and still very much Norma Jeane I really enjoyed it and learned quite a lotabout her strange familial dynamics and about those she was closest to during that period She certainly never had a massive amount of support or encouragement from her mum but she also had her demons and I liked that Marilyn would never, ever slate her because she also knew how hard This was an interesting perspective taken by a book about Marilyn Monroe in that it features a year in her life when she was only 20 and still very much Norma Jeane I

actually spoken with some of the people he s written about and hasn t just made it all up after reading a few articles, too.It s quite intriguing too in that both candles in the wind died aged only 36.Certainly a comprehensive look at the last year she was Norma Jeane [ Pdf ] ⚆ Casting Norma Jeane: A Starlet is Transformed Into Marilyn Monroe ♲ She started out with less than any girl I ever knew

recommend this book to anyone It was a very good read This is a very interesting idea for a book but there was something lacking I just could not get into it, most of the information is old and has been out there for ever Marilyn was a very young woman that really never grew up Being this way she was hurt in so ways and this book does not even begin to tell that side of it I think that everyone knew that except the author I wish I could give this a higher rating but I don t feel that it s there. This is a concise accounting of Marilyn s beginnings It s an interesting part of the legend s life Unfortunately, it seemed like Marilyn became a bit player in her own life story when almost half of the short book s attention was shifted to a rather extensive retelling of her mother s life In these passages, Marilyn Norma Jean even isn t mentioned If anything, this made me want to go out and find aextensive biography.
