I did not read this, it was given to me but I just couldn't waste my time trying to get through a 700+ page about someone that I don't really care about. Beatty was never a favorite of mine and I never gave him much thought, he had very few movies and didn't pursue that career and stayed out of the limelight, now only in public's eye because of his wife.
I found this book to be written in a very confusing manner-
Who cares about three generations of the Beatty family, when you can't keep track of who's who? Too many names and unnecessary details.
She also relied on too many memories and thoughts of people- the book dragged on and on!
Huge book, too many words.
