    1. They may have thought us terribly naughty, but we didn't mind.It sort of sums up Lady Annabel. Bad behavior and serial adultery are the name of the game in this book. And believe me, it's the glossed-over version. Lady Annabel is fascinating, in a train-wreck-I-can't-believe-I'm-staring kind of way. Almost unimaginably rich, pregnant by her lover while still married to her husband, very proud of her bosom and her tan; just an absolute hot mess. You will come away from this book somewhat stunned, [...]

    2. Good read. Annabel's sense of humour bubbles all the way through. Her life was not without tragedy. An interesting picture of life in society in England.

    3. I did like this book because it took me into a glamorous world far removed from mine. It was quite confusing in parts, it jumped around a bit and she made the assumption that the reader knew who she was talking about, lots of titles, double barrelled names. Being a matter of fact person myself I liked Annabel because she came across as the same with a stoic stiff upper lip. It has not all been roses and champagne for her, she has faced heartbreak - the early deaths of her parents, her badly inju [...]

    4. I skimmed the rest--not much thereDown to 2 starse thinks her kid comendeering a busy hospital elevator is "cute" and writes appreciatively of other horrible behavior. Reminds me of the Kennedys. Don't think I'll waste time finishing this.Down-graded this to 3 stars. I always get bored after their debutante season! Now I just have to wait for Mick Jagger to show up later on. That might perk it back up a star or two.I love to read anything about the British Aristocracyey have more in common with [...]

    5. I did find this an interesting read, though I hadn't sought it out. It was given to me by a friend who is interested in local history. Wynyard Hall, one of Annabel's homes, is not far from where I live and I attended a sumptuous wedding there a couple of years ago. It's very much about "how the other half live", though Annabel comes across as a very likeable person.

    6. Memoirs of Lady Annabel Goldsmith. If you don’t know who she is, you won’t care. Her first husband named the nightclub Annabel’s in London after her. She’s not that unconventional, it’s just that she openly had an affair with the man who became her second husband and then tolerated his mistresses when they got married. Oh well, it was entertaining.

    7. This was better than I thought it would be -- Goldsmith is a good storyteller. She doesn't gloss over difficult topics including death of her son, illness, but then doesn't over-share either. Opening chapter is not good for anyone afraid of flying (!).

    8. Unconventional, but also heavily sanitized. Read `The Last Curtsy' to find out what she doesn't tell you about her sister-in-law. Read anything on Jimmy Goldsmith to find out what she doesn't tell you about him. What other unsavory characters is she glossing over?

    9. Great easy read. simple yet something you can get lost in. I love to read about other peoples lives especially when they are so different from my own.

    10. Rereading one of my favorite memoirs from Lady Annabel Goldsmith, a goddess in London in the 60's and beyond. Fabulous.
