Great, but why Courtney?
5 February 2006 | by IncalculacableSee all my reviews

This is a genuinely good biography, but I agree with the rest of them: why Courtney Love as the narrator? She moves away from the microphone sometimes and you can't really hear her voice. But why would you want to anyway - it's emotionless and boring. She is hardly an 'It' girl either, so not really an appropriate choice. I think someone with more 'energy' to their voice would have been so much better... it really distracts you from the biography. Although this is very accurate and interesting, it is not as thorough as David Stenn's biography, Clara Bow: Runnin' Wild (an essential for every Clara fan!). So if you want the COMPLETE low-down on Clara, read the book, because this only skims the surface.
