    Reading the book felt like a rollercoaster ride. Louise Ford has magic in her words. It's as if she has delivered every prospect of what a biography should be like. Indeed Jamie Dornan had no massive malice that could represent him as negative nor Ford had to try for it. She ensembled his twist and turns in life so perfectly that at one point you will start to believe Dornan himself is performing his biographical drama on stage.

She ensembled his twist and turns in life so perfectly that at one point you will start to believe Dornan himself is performing his biographical drama on stage. The struggle for a breakthrough from an underwear model life to an actor is really heartfelt. I have read all the three of his biographical books but I found this the best. For his earnest fans, they may find the information known but still there is a lot going on in the book and in his the then life too. Lastly I had to say, today he can eclipse the doubt he had before that if he would make it to the starry Hollywood. His versatility is commendable.

    I truly enjoyed reading this book. I found it fascinating how down to earth he truly is, even with all of the fame surrounding him. I feel that the author {Louise Ford} told his story very well & didn’t try to cast Jamie Dornan {&/or his loved ones} in any sort of negative way. WTG!!!! I DEFINITELY recommend reading this & I personally would read this again!

    I love all of Jamies movies, even the ones where he is a killer. I read books every night before I go to sleep. I have been doing this all my life. My books are usually fiction. But when I read A Biography of Jamie Dornan. I was so impressed to hear what an actor went through to get to be and Actor, Singer, and Modal. Jamie you are an amazing Actor and you should do more comedy movies.

    Por acaso eu já tinha reparado nele na série Once Upon a Time, mas ainda não tive a oportunidade de ver a série The Fall mas já ouvi boas críticas em relação à serie, voltando ao livro. É uma biografia não autorizada do percurso Jamie Dornan desde modelo até ser o Christian Grey que toda a gente conhece. Fala também da sua vida amorosa, de alguns boatos que surgiram quando era conhecido como modelo até conhecer a sua actual mulher. É um livro interessante e fácil de ler. http://aviciadadoslivros.
