  1. This further confirms how much I would love to be her friend It s like reading a brilliantly witty and self deprecating conversation with a good friend who has a lot of fascinating knowledge, humour, and life experience.


  2. Fairly interesting Even though I hadn t read her first book, which this is supposed to be a follow up of Oh, well, maybe I ll pick it up yet That s what I did with David Crosby, read his second book, obtained the first book and stuck it on a shelf.Too much drugs here, although that s probably what her body was telling her Hard to believe that at one time she was homeless, living on a brick wall and being a junkie A friend got her straight This is the story of her life since then A lot of touring [...]


  3. I seem to possess the uncanny knack of reading a persons published works backwards, i.e the most recently released, first The result here being that I ve missed out on Faithfull s 1994 biography and selected this 2007 addition of memories, dreams reflections Both these books have been written with the help of David Dalton.Such is the casual conversational style of the text here that I get the impression that Marianne simply poured her memories, dreams and reflections into Mr Dalton s recording e [...]


  4. Icon Marrianne Raithfull s first memoir is a Rock n Roll classic, and this one is very much like the promised second album that doesn t fully deliver It s a book without a purpose, but even with that it does have moments of interest but then there is a lot of dead space.Unlike the first book, this is basically a series of snapshots that really doesn t hold up by themselves Faithfull lives in a fascinating world of really interesting people, yet by reading this book, I don t get the feeling that [...]


  5. Clearly, Marianne deliberately chose a book title that is almost the same as Carl Jung s autobiographical Memories, Dreams, Reflections Perhaps a trifle grandiose considering Jung s intellectual stature but she did at least use all lower case letters in the title, perhaps in deference I read this on my laptop by borrowing a copy from the OPEN LIBRARY link openlibrary books OL26334 It s free, you just sign up and borrow whatever you like if it s available The loan period is two weeks This book I [...]


  6. A moderately good read, I would have preferred if she had stuck to show biz tales, Mick ,Keith and Brian get a couple of fleeting mentions She concentrates on the beats and philosophers of the 50 s and 60 s.Her taste in greatness is quite esoteric Juliette Greco, Gregory Corso, William Burroughs and Alan Ginsberg.She appears to be very friendly, honest and talented person I liked it.She ends the book by discussing contracting cancer and her remission Glad to say, ten years after the book was p [...]


  7. Some part of it just rumbles on too much, and cliches about celebrity and 60s inevitably came out but nevertheless like her previous autobiography it s worth reading One can almost hear the voice of this fascinating lady talking about her experiences, her memory of people and an age, the madness and the decadence as well as some heart warming tales It s much than a tell all kind of celebrity memoir, with all it s understanding and sympathy towards the characters who made their appearance


  8. Ah, Marianne You never really disappoint You are still one of a kind and I always enjoy hearing from you When I was a young girl I wanted to be you That lovely blond hair and those Carnaby Street clothes The London Scene So trippy and hip We are of an age, and life didn t turn out the way I thought it would I guess you feel the same way, judging by this book You are older and wiser and who knew you we would live this long A blessing or not, here we are Did I say I am glad I enjoyed these musings [...]


  9. Follow up to Marianne s original classic autobiography this is a rather sketchier affair, very conversational in tone and that is part of its charm but also its weakness You certainly hear Marianne s voice and it is great to read about her most recent records and some of the unknown characters she has known Caroline Blackwood and Henrietta Moraes but sometimes it does not feel very thought through not far off a Hello celebrity chat Was the book sponsored by Christian Louboutin by the way God, h [...]


  10. Not quite as cohesive as her first memoir, but every bit as engaging For fans of Faithfull both the book and its author , this is a charming little companion piece filled with miscellaneous memories that either didn t find their way into her proper autobiography, or else the stories are updates from the years since the publication of her first book For those unacquainted with Ms Faithfull, read Faithfull first, then come back to this one This doesn t quite stand on its own as a memoir, but it s [...]


  11. This book reads much like diary remembrances of friends and events, as though Ms Faithfull is reconstructing the puzzle of her life She holds nothing back neither the joys of her relationships nor the guilt she seems to carry, observing what can only be seen in clearly in the mirror of hindsight She writes as though she is telling her story for posterity, a letter to her inner child, One hopes that writing this book has been cathartic, as Ms Faithfull writes honestly, facing her imperfect humani [...]


  12. This isn t an autobiography in the traditional sense Faithfull already wrote one of those, back in the 90s This book is a series of vignettes about her friends, her music, and anything else that strikes her fancy Her voice is funny, self deprecating, and original, and this is an enjoyable read It s probably most appropriate for the devoted fan If you re interested in a linear approach to Faithfull s fascinating life, her autobiography Faithfull is absolutely worth a look.


  13. Liked the very casual way this book was written like you were sat over a table having coffee and listening to her talk Felt there was a lot of name dropping in the beginning and wanted to know about Marianne but then realised that these people were a huge influence on her life and were important players in her story.Enjoyed the later chapters much .


  14. I read this book before her first memoir simply because I don t own her first book I have yet to read the first one but this was a great memoir, even for someone who only knows the basics about Marianne Faithfull.


  15. not as cohesive as faithfull almost seemed like she was just writing things as they occured to her over a period of time every chapter seems like an aside while reading her first book but some good gossip and funny, of course.


  16. Kind of fragmentary, but also conversational An easy read Heavy on the name dropping, but that s what you would expect from someone who has lived the life she has lived Some great stuff about the rock and roll royalty that she is part of Great suggestions for further reading too.


  17. A nice read, but not as good as her first memoir Hops and dances around topics a lot, she dwells mostly on her dead friends Rehashes a lot of the material from her first book, while hardly writing about the musicians she has collaborated on Plenty of good bits still, though



  18. Not as compelling as the first book but but still fascinating Marianne has lived a divinely decadent life and has no trouble relating all the sordid and fabulous details.


  19. i love marianne i love the era in which she livedi love her truthi just wish anita would write her story


  20. a collection of stories and recollections of the amazing Marianne Faithfull A perfect companion to her previous autobiography.



  21. I am finding this book very difficult to get into, actually it is boring I shall persevere, however as I do love this woman.
