Reviews:
  • Kigul
Entertaining and fun but exactly how truthful it is certainly only Julia has the answers. How anyone could possibly know what is said and what goes on in intimate relationships between 2 people is nothing but gossip and guesswork. The author claims knowledge of intimate conversations between Julia and her beaus, family, and close friends. I doubt very much any or very few of these people actually talked with the author. So take it with a grain of salt and like the rag magazines read it for the entertainment like you would a novel.

I obviously hoped to find this book interesting but bought it mainly as a light read while traveling. In actual fact, I found it far more fascinating and fun to read than expected. I didn't know much about Julia's life outside seeing some of her films yet somehow wasn't too surprised to read of a combination of personality complexities and tough survival instincts! It was a disappointment though when the book ended before she settled with her husband, Danny, and had their family. I feel there might be so much more to her development that would be interesting to read.

Even though I have never been a fan this is easy read. It is over ten years old.

Love it.

This is a very good biography on Julia. Packed with tons of info and good pictures. If you're a fan of Roberts, this is the book for you. Definitely worth it!
  • OTANO
Good book. Not much incredibly new information, but still a good read and a good collectible for any Julia Roberts fan.

I was anxious to get started reading this book, as I, too, live in Smyrna and thought it would be cool to know more about Julia and the places she frequented while living here. Parts I could identify with, but overall, I felt it covered way too much on her parents (I wasn't interested in their history); and (2) it was hard to get by all the typos. Sorry, but I was disappointed in this book.
This book is highly enjoyable and a page turner if you are intrigued by Julia Roberts. It starts at the beginning growing up in a family separated with anger and distrust. It goes on to show her moving out of Georgia and living with her brother Eric and sister Lisa in New York. It talks of how she broke into acting and fame. It really gets into her relationships with men and her interactions with male co-stars. After reading this book I have a somewhat different view of the actor. I used to wish I had her life and envied her tremendously. It seems like she has difficulties with men, possibly falling in love with love and when it begins to get deep and intimacy is the next step forward, things start to get rough. It seems like anger and distrust keep coming up in her life and at least in her relationships with men. It does not really go into many female friendships, touching on Susan Sarandon and her sister Lisa. The author does a good job of tieing his research together to make a cohesive picture of Julia. He had a little bit of help, from private sources and her brother who send emails of info to him. It is interesting to me as to why she and her brother are still estranged. It seems as if something big must have happened to create such a chasm. It also seems as if Julia has followed her mothers and Eric's abandonment of each other on in her own life, I think this is sad. I see her as an open, say what's on your mind person, yet this may be because she is a hot commodity and can do this without as many repercussions as some of us have to contend with. If she was getting shunned for this behavior, and maybe she has, I don't know if it would be so quick to happen. It seems like an exciting life but with addiction of some kind having to be there is it really being enjoyed as completely. Is love being enjoyed completely if both partners can speak the truth without fear of some form of abandonment. Oh well, I had alot of thoughts come up from reading it and am grateful. I am glad I read the book. I do not feel the envy that I had once felt and see Julia as much more human, which I would think the author would want you to walk away with.
