    1. Keith Chawgo on said:

      Dutch Girl documents the life of Audrey Hepburn during her years in the Netherlands which includes the torrent episodes of World War 2 At times the book comes across as a history book about the Netherlands and WWII and the story of a would be actress who would steal the hearts of the world in her adulthood.The novel does not really go into her films or life after she had become a star It does however document an important part of world history and the part she played in these events and her fa D [...]

      When my mother wanted to teach me a lesson about life she never used stories about her career She always told stories about the war The war was very, very important to her It made her who she was. Luca Dotti, youngest son of Audrey HepburnBreaking out at the height of the studio era, World War II indelibly impacted Hollywood s stars as much as it did the movie going public Author Robert Matzen has highlighted three dynamic instances of this in a WWII trilogy that began with Carole Lombar [...]

      If Audrey Hepburn was a puzzle, then there was a good one third that had always been lost to the outside world We may have seen a few pieces in biographies and a handful from her sons books and interviews, but there was still something wanting With Dutch Girl, we finally see just how much we had been missing.This is not a biography for a casual fan, or someone new to Hepburn fandom and looking to learn about her in general Granted, you learn so much about what made Audrey Hepburn who th I [...]

    4. Sue Parker on said:

      Definitely an autobiography rather than a novel I was fascinated to read about the life, especially early years of Audrey Hepburn, who I admire as an actress Lots of detail here but it is rather long winded and can be a dull read at times Cut it back by a third and have it written less like a history text book in places and it will be suitable for sale to the masses.

    5. Celia on said:

      People probably like this book will probably be interested in World War II than Audrey Hepburn Audrey Hepburn lived through and experienced major episodes of World War II which ended when she was fifteen However, the book needed to make a better connection Audrey Hepburn s childhood and her adult Also, the book has a information about Holland and World War II than is strictly needed for a book that is mainly about Audrey Hepburn.Audrey Hepburn lived through some of the major inciden People proba [...]

    6. Melissa Marie on said:

      This book has both nothing and everything to do with Audrey Hepburn The story is largely about the Nazi occupation in the Netherlands and all of the famine and violence that it brought There is so much to Audrey s demeanor that was never understood during her lifetime and this book sheds light on the trauma and devastation that she faced with her family There were some shocking moments to the book but I don t wish to provide spoilers If you aren t into war books, as I was, this book may at This [...]

    7. Corey Wignall-Holowaty on said:

      This book documents Aubrey Hepburn s Life in the Netherlands during WWII This is what seems to be a true historical account of her experiences and the life that lead to stardom I only wish that this book covered of Aubrey s life after she became famous it seems to talk about WWII than that of her life and experiences Definitely not a biography, but still a good read for those interested in history as I am.
