    • I had very mixed emotions regarding this book. I was looking for more insight regarding Sharon Tate's life prior to all the scandalous rumors, that circulated after her death. After reading this book it had me thinking, "Oh, boy, here we go another conspiracy theory". When I was just about ready to give up, something interesting would pop up and keep me reading on. Mr. Sander's did enlighten me on Roman Polansky childhood which wasn't pleasant. He had me quite confused in several places when he [...]

    • I tried to like the book Sharon Tate by Ed Sanders. Unfortunately I did not like this book as the book was light on substance and far longer than it needed to be. The two-thirds of the book was mainly fluff and read like a Hollywood tabloid.The remaining one-third of the book had a bit more substance as it dealt with the Manson Family's murder of Tate and the killings of several other people.Recommend with caveats given.Review written after downloading a galley from Edelweiss.

    • I'm just going to discard this one. It was a two for one deal with the other Manson book, Helter Skelter. I took a quick glance at some reviews, and I'm just going to pass this one along. lol

    • Thank you to Da Capo Press, Perseus Books Group and NetGalley for the ARC in exchange for an honest review. Much appreciated!One of the most upsetting things I have ever read is the recounting of the murder of Sharon Tate, with her killers sharing that she begged to stay alive long enough to have her baby (due to be born in just two short weeks), offering herself as a hostage, and crying “Mother, Mother…” as she was stabbed to death. Could anything be more horrifying? Could anything be mor [...]

    • Sharon Tate: The Biography by Ed Sanders is a free NetGalley ebook that I read in an early morning in late November. Having watched both Valley of the Dolls and Roman Polanski: Wanted and Desired somewhat recently, I had really looked forward to this book filling out the missing pieces.Sanders' writing is scattered with uneven, sour tones and dotted with mantras (i.e. 'uh oh' and 'quicksand'). Sharon Tate's life seems almost like that of a silver shimmering trout, fighting to swim upstream in a [...]

    • I received this book from NetGalley and it was my very first review for them. I have been waiting to read this book for months and what a total disappointment. I know that it was unedited but it was a jumbled, repetitive mess. The title is definitely wrong. Yes, Sharon Tate is a focus but he just rambles on about so many other things from the 1960's. If anyone has read even one well written book about her or the family including the authors other book about Manson then this will pretty much be n [...]

    • I received a free copy of this ebook from netgalley. This book is filled with information that I didn't know about Sharon Tate and Roman Polanski. I found the information about Doris Tate and her stage mother tendencies interesting. Some of the other facts of Roman Polanski's early life were fascinating as well. The book switches back and forth between Roman and Sharon. I found the story hard to follow. Later parts I was already familiar with since I've read about the Manson murders. There was n [...]

    • was given this by netgalley for a honest review.e subject material was very interesting and detailed and researched but however found the writing style was not to my tastes i realise this is very subjective

    • Misleading title. One third of the book is a timeline breakdown of the Manson murders. Nothing new to see here. Move along.

    • I had to read this after falling down a hole of books and podcasts about Charles Manson (don't worry guys, I'm doing just fine). It was perfect for picking up and putting down now and then, but not as gripping as other stuff I've read. I suppose it's hard to know a ton about Sharon Tate as a person since she died so young. Instead, Sanders tells us how her life and her tragic death intertwined with other major events in politics, Hollywood, and the cultural shifts of the late 60s. As he would sa [...]

    • Thought it would be gossipy like People magazine, but the stories and relationships associated with the Manson cult and murders were fascinating. The author was thorough and the stories were detailed. The book was much more like an extended feature story by a serious author in a newspaper or magazine like the Wall Street Journal or the New Yorker than a story in a popular magazine. If you remember the Manson murders, or your curiosity is piqued, I'd give the book a try. I was quickly hooked.

    • A tragic biographyEd Sanders writes a biography of the beautiful actress who died a cruel death at the hands of the Manson cult. Sanders expands his research digging for the truth of the reason Tate died at such a young age. Was it because she overheard something that Sirhan Sirhan did ? Did a English Satanic cult order and pay for the hit? Sanders continually to valiantly find the truth.

    • I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.Admittedly, there is already a fair amount of writing about the short life of this talented, beautiful woman. With a lot of background information included, especially about the early life of Roman Polanski, there was quite a lot of new material which was appreciated. I cannot help but mention that the formatting and writing in the book was a little disjointed and somewhat superfluous in many places. Only my opinion.

    • I picked this up in the True Crime section at B&N. Given the subject, that was to be expected. What wasn't to be expected was the devolution into conspiracy theories about "satanic cults" and several pages on the assassination of Robert Kennedy which read like it was taken straight out of the pages of "The Manchurian Candidate".

    • Pretty good book, I really didn't learn anything knew about the times/murders or Sharon, but it was a nice focus on her as a person and not just as a victim. The drawings of her and scenes was a little putt-offish, as opposed to actual photos, which made it feel like it was not a 'genuine' book but all-in-all It was an enjoyable read.

    • This is as much a history of Sanders' investigations of the Tate murder as it is biography. But for someone who can never get enough (possibly) new details of the Manson family, it is must reading. There is nothing outstanding about the writing.

    • not a well-written book, I'm afraid, though I will admit that I did not finish this one. Either way, reading some 20% is enough to ascertain that the writing style was not for me. Even Polanski's early life sounded uniteresting

    • A well inspired biography about the lovely Sharon Tate and her tragic death.She will be loved by millions forever.
