I really wanted to like this a lot more than I did. I saw that a "sequel" of sorts had come out and I thought I'd read this first. It was fairly informative, but had the feeling of a list rather than a flow of one's life story. I enjoyed the anecdotes from the people who had worked with her, but overall it was rather tedious and I suspect the author had a lot less access (or chose to filter out quite a bit) that gave it a rather pared down feeling.

Certainly for fans it's worth a read, but I'd strongly recommend you borrow it from the library or find a good bargain on eBay. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0752848941, Paperback)

Whether it is her sunny temperament, her gift of laughter, her wide-ranging abilities, or all three, Judi Dench is without doubt a star. Shortlisted for a 1998 Oscar for her performance as Queen Victoria in MRS BROWN, she then won one for her role as Queen Elizabeth in SHAKESPEARE IN LOVE. Judi Dench is widely loved, and not only among the theatrical profession. Her long-running appearance opposite Geoffrey Palmer in the TV situation comedy AS TIME GOES BY has run to four series and gained her a TV TIMES readers' award as 'the actress we most wish see more often on television'. She juggles the National Theatre (a sell-out season in Sondheim's A LITTLE NIGHT MUSIC and David Hare's AMY'S VIEW) with TV and films (she is now established as 'M' in the latest James Bond series). Since the paperback edition was published, John Miller has written a new chapter, bringing what is fast becoming a classic biography completely up-to-date.
