    PDF/EPUB famulantenaustausch.de È Platinum Doll ePUB ☆ platinum download, doll kindle, Platinum Doll eBookFind this and other reviews at first experience with author Anne Girard took place in 2014 when I read Madame Picasso The book impressed me and played a large part in prompting my interest in Platinum Doll I knew next to nothing about Jean Harlow when offered an advanced reader’s edition of the book but I love old Hollywood and knew I’d enjoyed Girard’s style of writing Long story short I accepted the offer and uickly lost myself in Girard’s interpretation of Jean’s story The narrative itself follows Jean’s life from 1927 to 1932 covering the course of her marriage to Charles Chuck McGrew and the rise of her professional career Girard emphasizes the tumultuous relationship of a young couple who don’t see eye to eye and a domineering mother who is hell bent on vicariously living her dreams through the success of her only child Historically I found the novel illuminating but I feel the strength of the narrative is in Girard’s illustration of these relationships and th

    PDF/EPUB famulantenaustausch.de È Platinum Doll ePUB ☆ platinum download, doll kindle, Platinum Doll eBookFind my full review at 's something fascinating to me about peaking behind the glamour and spectacle of the golden age of Hollywood and seeing the grit disappointment and sacrifice hidden beneath I haven't read a book yet or seen a movie set during this uniue time and place that doesn't highlight the hardships that come with the privileged life those that make it come to experience This can sometimes come across to me as poor me I'm so rich and sad but that isn't the case at all with Anne Girard's Platinum Doll In this lovely novel of the life of Jean Harlow the reader is thrust into the heart and mind of this complex and incredibly admirable woman and made to truly appreciate all she did to make her dreams come true Right off the bat I have to say that I absolutely LOVE Girard's depiction of Harlean aka Jean Harlow I didn't know very much about her before but from the very beginning I knew I was g
