    eBook nuiun.de è Florence Foster Jenkins eBook ´ Florence Foster ePUB florence book, foster pdf, jenkins download, Florence Foster kindle, Florence Foster Jenkins PDFI am amazed with the fact that anyone would ever publish such horrific writing I suppose it is fitting that the publishing company which produced this book is called Overlook Press because they completely overlooked editing altogether After only a few pages in I was so distracted by the many punctuational and structural errors that I almost uit reading it However I decided to see the book through to the end being that it is such a short read a mere 144 pages I recently saw an advertisement for Meryl Streep's new movie which is based on the life of Florence Foster Jenkins Although I had no clue who Florence was the film trailer intrigued me and made me curious As someone who has always loved music and singing I longed to learn about why she was considered one of the world's worst singers and how she en

    eBook nuiun.de è Florence Foster Jenkins eBook ´ Florence Foster ePUB florence book, foster pdf, jenkins download, Florence Foster kindle, Florence Foster Jenkins PDFIneptly and nonsensically written this is a mini bio of Florence Foster Jenkins The main problem to me is there’s nothing innately inspirational about an extremely wealthy woman being so rich everyone pretends her singing is good I also could do without the many fawning references to the Enduring Passion of her long time lover who is boinking another woman on the side

    eBook nuiun.de è Florence Foster Jenkins eBook ´ Florence Foster ePUB florence book, foster pdf, jenkins download, Florence Foster kindle, Florence Foster Jenkins PDFThree stars for the writing; four and a half for the subjectI have always been one of those folks who laughed at Madame Florence's warbly arias and wondered about whether or not she was putting one over on her listeners This book in conjunction with the recent movie starring Meryl Streep has given me a totally different picture of who Florence Foster Jenkins was music lover patron of the arts

    eBook nuiun.de è Florence Foster Jenkins eBook ´ Florence Foster ePUB florence book, foster pdf, jenkins download, Florence Foster kindle, Florence Foster Jenkins PDF2 12 stars One the plus side this biography of the infamously bad opera singer is short and uite readable On the minus side it is a bit of a mess wandering here and there as though the author had a deadline he probably did the opening of the recent Meryl Streep movie and have time to get it in shape He's done his research in terms of her musical performances and her early years but Jenkins never comes to life and her relationship with her common law husband Hugh Grant in the movie remains mostly unexamined Though there is a chapter called Meet Mr McMoon about the man who became her chief accompanist we don't find out how he came to get the job just that he did The movie implies that he was gay but we don't get a hint of this until the final pages of the book I read it in two sittings and mostly it felt like an appetizer and made me want to read a real biography of this woman

    eBook nuiun.de è Florence Foster Jenkins eBook ´ Florence Foster ePUB florence book, foster pdf, jenkins download, Florence Foster kindle, Florence Foster Jenkins PDFEccentric socialite Florence Foster Jenkins 1868 1944 was the laughingstock of the New York City's smart set during the 1930s and 40s This wealthy heiress was best known for her florid vocal performances and her complete inability to hit the proper notes Her shows always sold out but she didn't understand that underneath their applause and cheers her adoring audiences were barely suppressing their laughter at her campy costumes and dreadful voice As one critic wrote Jenkins' performances are a catalogue of every vocal fault and failure imaginable p 97 Yet some claim that she was so bad and so devoted to her art despite the naysayers that she was goodOn the heels of two recent films about Jenkins a documentary and a feature film starring Meryl Streep author Darryl Bullock has come out with this brief biography of the woman

    eBook nuiun.de è Florence Foster Jenkins eBook ´ Florence Foster ePUB florence book, foster pdf, jenkins download, Florence Foster kindle, Florence Foster Jenkins PDFBetween a 3 and a 4 star The actual book construction is a little uneven and jumps around which gives it a soapy feel he uotes the wretchedly bitchy Simon Doonan in a soundbite that should just die and I'm not going to repeat it here who wasn't even born when Madame died in 1944 However Bullock does evoke a lot of sympathy for his subject a Society lady who clearly LOVED classical music and had the money to indulge her passion despite or because of her lack of voice You can still purchase Madame's recordings just search Florence Foster Jenkins on iTunes I can only take listening to the iTunes samples because it's just too awful The recordings w

    eBook nuiun.de è Florence Foster Jenkins eBook ´ Florence Foster ePUB florence book, foster pdf, jenkins download, Florence Foster kindle, Florence Foster Jenkins PDFI'm sure Florence Foster Jenkins had an interesting life but you wouldn't get any insights about that from THIS snide gossipy and poorly written biography Bullock substitutes hearsay for research and tells it all in a chronologically incoherent fashion that provides way too much detail about the uninteresting things and zero insights at all to the most fascinating conundrum of all how did such a promising young musician come to be known as the world's worst opera singer? That uestion isn't answered in these pagesI've heard the Meryl Streep movie is good you probably want to watch that instead of reading this dreck
