The book itself is really interesting, and just as juicy as I expected. I have been a Barbra fan since I was a young girl--and to hear about her amazing success (at such a young age, too!) is incredible. I take issue with the narration. Ellen Archer has a pleasant reading voice, but there are so many glaring errors in pronunciation of the names of very famous movie stars, with a bonus of different wrong pronunciations of the same name, that I think it detracts mightily from the listening experience. "Ellen Burstyn" becomes "Ellen Bernstein" twice. "Vivian Leigh" is "Vivian Lay" and "Leigh Taylor Young" vascillates between "Lay Taylor Young" and "Lee Taylor Young." She even has problems with actual words, like "vestige" and "bicuspids." I do not know if it was a rush job, but come on. It is annoying.
