Katherine Hepburn is probably my most favorite actress ever.
The book jumps around a little but lots of interesting stories of her life.

I have always love autobiograpghies/biographies, and have recently taken an interest in Katharine Hepburn. This book is written as if it were flashbackes/memories in her words. Although it sometimes means that areas are choppy and hard to follow, it is definitly an interesting read. I recommend it to anyone who has any interest in "old hollywood".

Very intimate, but often rambling (but the woman was in her 80's)book. A lot of detail on things that make you think this book may be wasting your time. If you are a Hepburn fan, you'll love it. If you aren't, you might be a little bored. I think the editors could have done a better job. But her insights are interesting nestled between a lot of uninteresting things.

Hepburns voice comes through loud and clear. While she was undoubtedly a demanding diva in her time, at the same time she was insecure and vulnerable. Terrific reading!

My complaint about this book is that is seems like she just sat down one day and wrote it all down. I guess I like either reading a biography from an outsider's view... all facts with little fiction to cloud the story... or an autobiography where the author lets you in as if you are one of her best girlfriends and you are kind of dishing. This is neither. It's almost too cold at times and then sometimes too much detail about how nervous she was about a certain audition.

Autobiography, and interesting recap of Katharine Hepburn's life, loves and her work. Sometimes difficult to follow because she follows a train of thought right in the middle of a different train of thought; which makes it seem as though she's there talking to you.

I'm not sure what it is that makes all of these famous people think that we want to know the color of the dress they were wearing that time when they were 12. Seriously. I love Katherine Hepburn as an actress and really wanted to hear how she came to be the character she was, strong and quirky, someone to admire. I got 1/2 way through, and just can't take any more. The single most significant thing I learned is that she did not consider herself attractive, and she says that pretty convincingly. Otherwise, another privileged society girl who remembers (and recounts) way too many details of every last outfit, encounter, relationship. Zzzzzz....

This was an interesting read. I learned alot about Katharine Hepburn. She wrote a very good story about herself and her life. It did leave me wondering about relationships in her life, though.

The late Katherine Hepburn reflects on the events, people and places that had shaped her life. Illustrated with 165 photographs, many of which have never been published before. A beautiful book!

"Admired and beloved by movie audiences for over sixty years, four-time Academy Award winner Katherine Hepburn is an American classic, and an extraordinary, enduring presence on the international cultural scene. Yet her private life has been obscured by mystery. Now Miss Hepburn breaks her long-kept silence in this absorbing and provacative memoir"

This is a rambling account of the life of Katharine Hepburn that clearly reflects her privileged upbringing and her rather narcissist personality. Too disjointed and hard to follow.
