From reading this book, i get the feeling they sugar coated the movie. Much better than the movie. wonderful read.

Like the person below me said, the movie was definitely sugar coated. It is tame compared to the story in this book and it doesn't do the book justice. This is one of most moving and heartbreaking books I have read. I actually cried while reading this, which is rather rare.
If I could give it more than 5 stars, I would.

A quick read and short glimpse into the twisted world of hollywood families. I enjoyed the movie more, but the book really shows Christina Crawford's struggle to find herself in a life and world so thoroughly manipulated by her adopted mother, Joan Crawford.

Most certainly an interesting and worthwhile read, particularly if you are fascinated by celebrity (which I am!) If you can keep yourself from feeling sorry for the author, the scandal and true story of Joan Crawford is pretty delicious.
