Recensione

The widow of Frank Sinatra delivers the goods in this intimate memoir of their years tiogether... Probing Sinatra's personality, she contrasts his polite manners and loyalty to friends with his feuds and booze-induced rants. Yet in the end, as she sees it, 'Frank was the most romantic man I ever met,' and that feeling permeates the pages throughout. (Publishers' Weekly)

An engaging read (Mail on Sunday)

Barbara Sinatra, the singer's final - and longest-serving - wife, has written a revealing memoir of their fiery days and nights (Telegraph)

At its heart, this autobiography is a simple story of an enduring love affair, and the unprecedented glimpse is less about the man who has already been dissected in dozens of books, and more about a woman whom the reader quickly discovers is quite interesting in her own right . . . Frank Sinatra lived 82 years, dying in Barbara's arms more than a decade ago. After reading this book, it's easy to conclude that he was the lucky one for finding such a strong, wise and fun-loving soul mate. (Denver Post)

Barbara Sinatra has turned in a genuine love story about the man with whom she shared a life. (Chicago Sun Times)

Descrizione del libro

Barbara Sinatra tells how a gangly kid in pigtails from Bosworth, Missouri became the fourth Mrs Frank Sinatra - a marriage that lasted more than 20 years

2.0 su 5 stelle Lost respect for Barbara Sinatra, although the read is quite interesting. 14 febbraio 2016
Di Jean Sasson - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
I like to read all sides of a story, so I read an outsider's book about Frank, his children's book about him, and his last wife's book -- This book was very interesting to a point, but I felt it was very self-serving and got the distinct feeling that Barbara Sinatra did all she could to drive a wedge between her husband and his children. She writes a book about her husband and barely mentions his children. I really don't like that in any person. If you marry a man or woman with children, you marry those children, too, and every effort should be made to make certain they are in their parent's life, not try to keep them out of it.

3.0 su 5 stelle She Knew How to Be the Good Wife 6 aprile 2016
Di Mariane Matera - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina rigida Acquisto verificato
She's a namedropper like you wouldn't believe. Every page is a list of people she has encountered, but you have to give it to her, she knew how to be the perfect and enduring wife to someone who lives in the spotlight. The first wife Nancy was too plain. Ava needed a spotlight of her own, and Mia committed the unforgivable sin of putting herself first in choosing what movie to do next. Barbara learned from all of them, and from her three husbands leading up to Sinatra. She learned to be strong and steady with the weak husbands, and she learned to cater to an older man and be the dutiful Palm Springs wife with the third husband. She learned tennis and golf and how to plan a party. So when it came time to trade up to the ultimate prize, she was fully prepared. She was never plain and simple. She never needed the spotlight for herself unless her husband was also in it. She traveled everywhere with him as often as possible so she is always there for him, unlike Mia. She may have annoyed his children, but she knew how to play the ultimate role of Hollywood wife. You fold your life into his and be what he needs. Simple as that.

2.0 su 5 stelle I love memoirs and I must admit I enjoyed reading it 7 aprile 2016
Di Kathy Sue - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
I was snowed by her for a while...then it just got more and more ridiculous. I love memoirs and I must admit I enjoyed reading it, but I don't believe her for one minute. Where is her humanity? Yes, she wrangles in wealthy people to support her noble causes, and the chapter on her beloved one is the longest chapter in the book, all about who donated the most money to her namesake charity. She had to be convinced to help abused children by her friend, because she didn't have anyone in her life that was abused to relate to.
What was missing was any mention of his children or grandchildren...she wrote them out of his life in this book as I imagined she tried to do in real life. I followed this book up with Tina Sinatra's book, and saw her from the eyes of her children for who she really is. I feel cheated that I wasted my time and my money on a book full of lies by Barbara Sinatra. She fabricated a love story out of a complicated union.

2.0 su 5 stelle Lady Blue Eyes Tells It "Her Way" 7 settembre 2015
Di Jill M. Whittaker - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
Self-serving rewritten history of her life and times. Would like to read critiques/reviews/responses by Frank Sinatra's friends, kids and previous wives.

Despite being on the outskirts of show business, she insists her introduction to "the boys" didn't occur until, once married, the mob wanted to meet Mrs Frank Sinatra.

Interesting view of Frank Sinatra's less charming quirks and warts. His temper tantrums were "exciting."

So telling that she wrote "Frank wanted me to go out..keep up with our friends." so she was out to dinner with friends when the housekeeper had to call for an ambulance to rush Frank to the hospital for the last time.

1.0 su 5 stelle Barbara Who? 11 novembre 2011
Di Mary C. Miller - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina rigida Acquisto verificato
If you want to waste your money on a book that tells you absolutely nothing new nor of any interest about Frank Sinatra then this is your book. If, however, you want to hear about all the famous people Barbara Sinatra met, only through her association with him, on every single page, or how much influence she had over him, how much he loved her more than anybody else and how fabulous she thinks she is, then go at it. Take special notice that she wants a Rolls Royce for her birthday and a close friend chose a charitable gift for theirs. It told me everything about this weightless human being.

The only thing I can hope is that Frank wasn't as shallow and without substance as this vapid woman is and would have, if he had been younger when he met her, have had his fun and moved on. Ava may have been a lot of self-destructive things, but she at least had a personality unlike no other. Not only that, but it's the last thing on earth that Frank would've wanted - to have anyone be BORED, which I was. What a disappointing book from a disappointing woman. Wasteful, really, when you think of the massive opportunity she had to be interesting. Pearls before swine, I suppose.
