Kirja-arvosteluja

This aptly titled book contains snapshots of actual handwritten pages from Marilyn Monroe's notebooks as well as typewritten diary entries and letters written between the 1950s to her death. Photographs of Marilyn Monroe either reading or writing bookend each chapter.

Although a book of scribbling from an unknown writer or poet would never be published, Marilyn Monroe's mystique continues to captivate public attention. This volume of thoughts, impressions, images, and feelings is a bit voyeuristic, but it does satisfy the craving to know what exactly went on behind the pretty face.

A recommended read for anyone interested in Marilyn Monroe or the inner thoughts of a creative person.

This was a very interesting insight into Marilyn Monroe's life. Most of the chapters are pretty short, little tidbits of stories about her life growing up, how she broke into the business, her first loves etc. Its too bad she didn't continue writing it, because it ends a bit abruptly (not because of her death, it ends right after her marriage to Joe DiMagio). Definitely recommended to any Marilyn fan.

This was very interesting. Its mostly small journal entries, poems, notes Marilyn wrote to herself along with some letters. Reading this, she was much smarter than people seemed to give her credit for. And clearly lonely and with some self issues (who isn't?). I've always been very interested in Marilyn and for any fan of hers, this is a very cool (quick) read and gives some insight into how she thought. It was also very cool to see her handwriting and such!!

Just about the saddest memoir I've ever read.
