Home: A Memoir of My Early Years - Julie Andrews Edwards

I Picked Up This Book Because: Saw it in the library and was curious.

The Story:

This depicts Julie’s life up until she heads to LA to film Mary Poppins. I must say I was disappointed not to get the details of her time on set of Mary Poppins and The Sound of Music as these were the two titles I was most familiar but I learned so much about her life prior that honestly there was no room for much more.

Julie was born with show business in her bones. I am not surprised at the amazing person she has become because she had an amazing, if difficult at times, start. I always enjoy listening to people tell their own story and Julie’s narration of her book was superb.

The Random Thoughts:



The Score Card:

The Iron Knight (Iron Fey, #4) - Julie Kagawa, MacLeod Andrews

While The Iron Queen wrapped up Meghan's story, The Iron Knight takes care of Ash. I was thrown by the change in narrator. I really enjoyed Khristine Hvam and had trouble adjusting. Granted it made more sense for the narrator of a male protaganist to also be male. But he had a very different voice for Grimalkin and Glitch, which I did not enjoy.

 

The storyline is still enjoyable and though I would have liked to see more of the Iron Kingdom and Megan but honestly as long as Grim is around I'm usually content.

 

I think I will pick up her companion series but probably not anytime soon.

The Garner Files: A Memoir
The Garner Files: A Memoir - James Garner,Jon Winokur,Julie Andrews Edwards If your a fan, you'll like it. If not, you won't. I'm fan and liked it. He tells a good story and keeps the book moving at a smooth pace and does reveal things about who he really is.

The narrator was so good at capturing what my imagination thinks of as the essence of who James Garner is I would often have to remind myself that it wasn't James Garner narrating the book himself. I know darn well months from now my memory will make me forget that it wasn't James Garner who narrated this book because the narrator does such a good job.

In addition to Garner fans, golfers and race car enthusiast will appreciate this book since they are both a large part of what made Garner's life complete.
