While in the forum's younger and less active days this used to be the one and only forum for "reviews and discussions about specific books", this is now just the subforum "other fiction" in a more well-organized "reviews and discussions about specific books" section with subforums for each genre. Check it out! :) Remember, the forums in the reviews section (including this forum) are for posting about a single book or series in topic, and the topic title should include the book's title. If you are creating a new topic, please try to post it in one of the other genres rather than posting it here in the "other fiction" section. This is only for books that do not fit in any of the other genre categories we have listed.

This fictional account of a set of interviews between Barbara Streisand and her psychoanalyst are interesting. At first I could not imagine Barbara with the voice the author had given her. As I went further I put that behind and just got into the story. It is interesting, sad and inspirational at the same time. Despite her childhood and lack of motherly love, she has become an accomplished singer, director and movie star.

I enjoyed the in-depth review of this book, especially with the challenge of having to read a copy that was not well edited.

For most people in the spotlight, their real lives a mystery. I would have never known this aspect of Barbara Streisand's life if not for this book. Given my own interest in Counselling psychology, I am intrigued to find her journey with Dr. Dale. This is a good review.
