About this author

Charity Bishop is funny, quirky, analytical, a little sentimental, and occasionally forgetful, with an offbeat sense of humor, a tendency to like sci-fi, and a storehouse of knowledge about “useless trivia.” She gets fixated on learning things, and obsesses over them until she knows everything there is to know about them, then looks for something new to learn. She gets bored with “same-ness,” but is good at impartiality and seeing both sides in an argument. In fact, she’s likely to argue both sides for the sheer fun of it.

I'm a bit torn on how I feel about this autobiography, which only covers about twenty years of Julie Andrews' life and ends just as the most interesting aspect of her film career is about to begin. She has a straightforward way of writing -- not much...more

This book covers a relatively short period of Julie Andrews' life, basically her childhood through her late/mid twenties with a pretty lengthily look at her ancestry (I think she starts with her maternal great-grandmother!) That means no dancing o... " Read more of this review »

Terry Pratchett
“And then Jack chopped down what was the world's last beanstalk, adding murder and ecological terrorism to the theft, enticement, and trespass charges already mentioned, and all the giant's children didn't have a daddy anymore. But he got away with it and lived happily ever after, without so much as a guilty twinge about what he had done...which proves that you can be excused for just about anything if you are a hero, because no one asks inconvenient questions.”
