Very interesting story, but the book would have benefitted from better editing. It's repetitive and drags from time to time. Worth a read though.

This book reads like a novel but it tells the most accurate account of their love affair, from the private letters of Burton to Taylor and Burton's diary. It also portrays Burton as a genius actor, perhaps more so than Taylor, something that has been lost in translation in the American pop culture.

"The most recent book on Taylor, it grabbed headlines when it was published last July for its access to the couple’s intimate love letters. Author Nancy Schoenberger interviewed in the Globe & Mail, March 25 2011: "She called herself a broad. One time she said, “Richard’s a great actor; I’m just a broad.” I think that down-to-earth, self-deprecating warmth and humanness is why she stayed famous and beloved for so long.""
