    eBook Marlene ePUB ê à weplayit.co à marlene ebok, Marlene PDF/EPUBMarlene by CW Gortner is a 2016 William Morrow publication I will admit up front that I did not realize this was a work of fiction at first I was a little disappointed since I was hoping for a traditional biography but it was my own fault for not reading the synopsis carefully I had not experienced this type of biographical fiction until recently but I found it to be an intriguing way of telling a person’s life story This one though was not a factual as I would have liked with some suggestions being so incredible I had to do a Google search to see if it was true The information wasn’t necessarily outright false since there is no way to disprove or validate it so I suppose it’s up to the reader to decide what they want to believe or not I do understand this is a n

    eBook Marlene ePUB ê à weplayit.co à marlene ebok, Marlene PDF/EPUB35 stars if I could but rounded up to 4I can't say that I've ever seen any of her movies but that didn't diminish at all my interest in reading this biographical novel of Marlene Dietrich I do remember seeing clips seeing how beautiful she was and hearing that sultry voice The first person narration gives this novel an almost genuine autobiographical feel Yet when I read a fictionalized account of a famous person I always have that uestion lurking in my mind how does the author know that this is what the

    eBook Marlene ePUB ê à weplayit.co à marlene ebok, Marlene PDF/EPUBI've been a fan of CW Gortner's books long before I met and befriended him at a conference and Marlene Dietrich is perhaps my favorite of his heroines She comes to life on the page a swearing smoking bisexual goddess of sin From her early days as schoolgirl violinist to her sashay through the Berlin cabarets of the 30s all the way to her meteoric rise through golden age Hollywood she fasc

    eBook Marlene ePUB ê à weplayit.co à marlene ebok, Marlene PDF/EPUBBeware this book does not cover Marlene Dietrich's entire life She was born in 1901 and died in 1992 The book starts with her school years It abruptly ends after the Second World War It just stops I was so surprised I went back and checked if

    eBook Marlene ePUB ê à weplayit.co à marlene ebok, Marlene PDF/EPUBI won this book through Goodreads giveaway and thank you very muchBut very much a so so read A lot of 'tell vs show' and dialogue that often says too much People don't often speak the obvious not to close friends family members etc Anyhow when I read the dialogue aloud it sounded artificial in places soAs for the novel itself it purports to take the major events of Marlene Dietrich's life and expand on them I'd rather read a biography and I think when I entered the contest that's what I believed this was A good solid bio Though the words 'A Novel' should have been a major clue right? Hey I'm getting oldBut it's as if someone took a timeline and wrote

    eBook Marlene ePUB ê à weplayit.co à marlene ebok, Marlene PDF/EPUBMarlene Dietrich wasn't an icon for me until I saw her in Destry Rides Again and then I wanted to see all her movies I knew that she first had success in Weimar Germany My concept of Weimar Germany is based on The Berlin Stories The Last of Mr NorrisGoodbye to Berlin a short story collection by Christopher Isherwood which is best known for its musical adaptation Cabaret I imagined Marlene Dietrich within that environment which was so unconventional and so free This was the Marlene Dietrich that I expected to see in Marlene by C W Gortner and he met my expectations in spades I received my copy of Marlene from Edelweiss in return for this honest reviewAs I read CW Gortner's vision of Marlene Dietrich I felt that she represented Weimar Germany's zeitgeist a German word that means the spirit of the time and she never really became part of Hollywood Hollywood studios tried to dictate what sort of life she led but she carved out an existence for herself that was

    eBook Marlene ePUB ê à weplayit.co à marlene ebok, Marlene PDF/EPUBDNF not because it was not a good book because it was and the writing was fantastic but simply because of the subject matter I thought I would be fascinated by this amazing lady but not enough to put this book ahead of some other books I've been waiting to read during the summer Because I love this author and he is a personal friend of mine I will go back and read this book once I'm caught up with my highly anticipated thrillers and no doubt absolutely love it At that point a review will follow
