If you are a fan of Julie Andrews, you will love this book. She is the narrator which makes it come alive with reality and emotion. It's fascinating to hear about her life and how she ends up becoming a famous singer. Great for a long commute to pass the time listening to her lovely voice.
I highly recommend.

minutia about England. Tedious. Read by author. I couldn't "carry on" more than 10 minutes.

If you enjoy Julie Andrews' distinctive voice, you will love this memoir on CD - both written and narrated by her. In her clear and expressive British way, she reads her book about her childhood and early career. Her childhood was difficult and she is so candid about her growing up years. I loved her dad. Her mother is another story. She relates many interesting ancedotes about starring in My Fair Lady on Broadway and her relationship with her first husband. Not a typical tell-all, this is classy and very well-written. I looked forward to listening to this book every time I got into my car.
