    One thought on “Colin Firth: The Biography”

    1. Interesting. I found out a lot that I didn’t already know. That said, it's a bit like reading a very long magazine article, with much summarizing and quoting. I actually kind of appreciated that, in a way, though, because while I wanted to know more about Mr. Firth, I don't want or need to know every little detail about him and his personal life, so it was nice to find out just enough to satisfy my curiosity without feeling like I'd been prying where I had no business. That's a difficult balan [...]

    2. I haven't finished reading this book yet but for the most part, am enjoying it. I'm a little skeptical about everything I am reading though.e of some geography factsI don't know the exact location of the five acres where Meg Tilly's Canadian log cabin wasyou know the one in the cold remote BC wildernessbut I do know that it was somewhere around the city of Maple Ridge, which is less than an hour from the city of Vancouver, BC. And while five acres of treed property in this area could be rustic w [...]

    3. As a Colin Firth fan I was really looking forward to this. The book basically consist of any and every quote that Colin Firth, his wife, fellow cast , etc have ever made. If you Googled I'm sure you would have found all the info in the book. There was nothing extra or insteresting that cannot be found on the web. I have to say I was rather dissapointed.

    4. 186 - 2015Meskipun boleh dibilang sebagian besar isi buku ini berupa kompilasi kutipan dari wawancara Colin Firth dan pihak-pihak yang mengenalnya dari berbagai sumber, aku mendapatkan gambaran yang sangat jelas mengenai bagaimana karakter aslinya.Dan karena aku malah jadi semakin jatuh cinta pada sang aktor di luar persona para karakter yang pernah diperankannya BINTANG LIMA simply for Colin Firth.Review agak panjang kutaruh di sini yareezstacks/2015

    5. I liked reading about his career, but like other reviews think the author relied too much on published interviews to really make it a truly compelling biography.

    6. Good information about the famous actor however the writing style indicates this is extracted from numerous media interviews done in the past.

    7. The topic was interesting for me but the writing style was irritating and well let's face it; actors are forced to do interviews and sometimes they run out of intelligent things to say and talk rubbish. I don't think they should then be quoted in books.

    8. I really enjoyed reading the book and learned a lot about an actor I really enjoy watching. I didn't mind the language, writing style. I just assumed the writer is British and that's how the writing came across. I had no idea he's done SOOO many movies! Many I've seen; some ill choose not to. He is pretty versatile and seems like a very down to earth sort of guy. I'm sure I'll refer back to the book many times. It's not a biography like John Adams or Harry Truman, but you're reading about an act [...]

    9. I love Colin Firth, I mean LOVE Colin Firth. When I saw this book I just had to have a copy so I ordered it and had it shipped to me from England. However, Allison Maloney is the worst writer I have attempted to read in years. Her style of writing is basically a bunch of quotes from other media outlets. It was difficult to read, no original thought and it was just drab. She ruined the his biography experience for me. I did not finish this book!!!!!

    10. I bought this book mainly to get an overview of Colin's Firth life and career, which the book does provide. The author is clearly a fan of Colin Firth and paints a very positive picture of him, but as I wasn't looking for juicy gossip or negative stories, I don't find this a problem. My major gripe with the book is the language, which is quite clumsy and would have benefited from more editing. It reads more like a fan blog than a published biography.

    11. Great read! Colin is one of my favorite actors, and I was looking forward to reading his biography. This book is well written, with a lot of detail about Colin's numerous acting roles. I enjoyed reading about his co-star's impressions as well. After reading this book, I have an admiration for Colin's dedication to his children and wife. If you are a fan of Colin Firth, I recommend this biography!

    12. As much as I adore him as an actor and a person, this book was lacking in anything new. Especially concerning was, her stating he and Meg lived in the wilderness close to the Arctic Circle. If they were 3 hours out of Vancouver, they were in the wilderness, but not close to the Arctic Circle. Wondering how she did her research. I couldn't finish it, I had other more interesting books to read.

    13. Ooh birthday present today - can't wait to read it!I've really enjoyed reading this book. It has given a great insight into his acting life.

    14. I enjoyed reading this as I have a love for Colin Firth. However, the book was poorly written and wrought with typos. Colin would have been better off writing his own!

    15. I really have enjoyed seeing Colin Firth. My favorite role he played was the harried dad on Nanny McPhee.
