Review: Goddess: The Secret Lives of Marilyn Monroe

User Review  - Thomas Flannery - Goodreads

This book is pretty intensive w/ the amount of factual information it gives, but remains a page turner, that's not easy to do. Summers doesn't rush to any judgments, he presents all the information available and lets the truth shine through. Read full review

Review: Goddess: The Secret Lives of Marilyn Monroe

User Review  - Pat Lampe - Goodreads

I remember the day Marilyn Monroe died. Everyone was sad and unbelieving. The overdose seemed to be a real result from taking barbiturates. I was 19 and naive but I don't remember there being rumors other than was it accidental or suicide. Certainly nothing about the Kennedy's. What pigs. Read full review
