I highly recommend "Lady Blue Eyes" as it kept me mesmerized hour after hour. Great anedotes about all the Hollywood celebs and pals, the antics of Sinatra and the deep love he had for Barbara. Lorna Raver did an outstanding job of narrating and there was never a dull moment. I have the greatest urge to play my entire Sinatra Reprise Collection on my iPod tonight.

Barbara Sinatra tells her funny, heartwarming story of life with Zeppo Marx, Frank Sinatra and many other movie stars who were friends in their crowd. She tells about Judy Garland, Kirk Douglas, Prince Rainier, Princess Grace and others. She knew how to navigate life married to an entitled rich person namely Frank Sinatra, knowing what to do when they showed up for a dinner party in his honor and he decided not to go at the last minute. It makes for an interesting story, one that keeps the listener hooked to the very last chapter. The narration is excellent.
Frank was a smart guy, loathed his own company, surrounded himself with amusements and knew his limitations. Barbara comes across as greedy, self seeking and calculating. As Frank drew toward old age, they appear to have met in the middle and I cant fault her devotion in his final stages. Very slow starting, too much of her early life, many missed opportunities to entertain us and delight with insights into great people. Lots of names, superficial stories. Franks children are noticeable by their absence. This book creates more questions than it answers. Barbara remembers every compliment and gift and conveniently forgets every insult or detail of an argument. A glimpse into Frank's life through a dense filter!
