Since the film version dealt with the most salacious years of Ms. Barber's life, the rest of the autobiography was a bit of a disappointment, especially the ending which was cathartic for the author, but depressing for the listener. Of some interest were her years as a journalist with Penthouse Mag.

Good memoir, even if her memory is unreliable.
Good read start to finish. It is not so much about Lynn Barber's accomplishments, as it is about the human element. I cannot stand to consume a book through audio if the narration is poor. The voice of the Carolyn Seymour figured strongly into my choice for this read. I would recommend this audio book.
