Living Like Audrey is a short book with numerous pictures, many I had not seen before. My favorite parts of the book were the wonderful photos and the quotes both by and about Audrey. The e-book was formatted oddly at times so the pictures were occasionally split across pages. I would recommend buying a physical copy of the book instead of a digital copy; it will make a beautiful coffee table book and conversation piece too. This book was a nice change of pace for me, and I was very happy that I read it.
I enjoyed a brief look at Audrey Hepburn's life. I have only seen several of her movies but she stood out in all. Perky, cute, funny and able to hold her own with the leading men of her time. She seems to have taken pride in the fact that she was not the classic beauty of her time but that she could embrace herself and be satisfied and happy none-the-less. And in that acceptance, others found her beauty. She would have been a wonderful role model for today. As I read this book, I felt happy and will surely see some more of her movies. The quotes from the characters she played and from friends were great at having me feel as I know Audrey a little bit. Black and white photos added a lot to the book.
14 different stories from all branches of the military and the bonds they have with their pets; whether they are linked together on or off the battlefield for service/companion/therapy. These pets give both their owners and trainers a sense of empowering, protection, discipline, closeness, teamwork, support, and creating/maintaining a routine and schedule in civilian life.
This book is a blend of info about Audrey and advice on how to be a little more like her. At times I felt like the author may have been putting others down or putting Audrey on an unreachable pedestal. Of course she was an amazing woman, but based on what I read it started to become difficult to imagine her ever losing her temper or having a cross thought. None of us are perfect, though she was certainly admirable for many reasons, especially her philanthropy. I do wish the book has touched on that one a little bit more.
A very quick and pleasant read filled with photos and quotes not only from Audrey, but by those who loved her. I learned a few new things about a woman I've greatly admired for years and quite enjoyed myself. It was a nice light break between my usual darker reads.
I received an ARC of this book from Net Galley and Rowman & Littlefield, thank you! My review is honest and unbiased.
