Would you listen to The Secret Life of Marilyn Monroe again? Why?
No , once was enough
What was one of the most memorable moments of The Secret Life of Marilyn Monroe?
How she lived with her husbands, she truly was abused.
What does Robert Petkoff bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
He did a good job with his narration, but I think it would have been better if it was a female narrator.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
Marilyn, she really was not a dumb blonde

A well-performed, well-written biography of an icon. There is nothing startling in the book but it is a good all round account of the life of a Hollywood personality. Marilyn Monroe appears to be yet another personality used and abused by the system prevalent in Hollywood.
I cannot recall having heard the word "however" used more frequently by a writer. It became something of a distraction.

Very good! Obviously a bit sad as the subject is Marilyn, but it was fluently written, well reasearched and interesting. I do like Taraborelli bios although he's not for everyone. I've read quite a few books about her and think this is one of the better ones. I think it was well read and, yes, the narrator does make a funny "marilyn" voice, but after a while you just go with the flow and get used to it. Overall I thought it was very well read.

The book came across as well researched, it was engaging and well presented.
The only two points i didn't enjoy were how the narrator spoke when speaking in Marilyn's voice mainly because he was a man. At times i felt the author had less empathy than necessary for Monroe's difficulties.
