I'm a huge - I mean a tremendous - fan of Angelina Jolie's, and I'm writing to say that this biography made Angelina Jolie simply come alive for me. Adding to the biography's impact was that I'd read it fresh from having read David Alexander's international thriller Chain Reaction in which the sexy yet lethal heroine somehow made me match Angelina Jolie to the character in the novel. I'd be thrilled if Chain Reaction were made into a movie with Angelina Jolie playing that part. It's custom-made for Angelina Jolie in my opinion. But, anyway, this biography's a great read. Highly recommended.
