The Book Review ~ How to be Lovely

Read: 17th August 2013

I have been reading this book on the side for a few weeks now. I love anything Audrey Hepburn, and have read a great number of books on her. This has to be one of my favorites. The Hellstern doesn’t fill it in with her opinions of Audrey and what she thinks Audrey thought- instead she uses Audrey’s own words, and the words of her friends and family. In fact the majority of the book is in Audrey’s own words.

Each chapter uncovers a bit about her, and looks at what everyday people knew of Audrey. Then Hellstern backs it up this with evidence in regards to what Audrey herself said, and what friends said about her.

The images are fantastic. The information is great – it doesn’t just reuse what everyone else has said. The author really has focused on new information about Audrey that is not really generally known or popular about her. It is an easy and light read. Well worth checking out.
