Well what I thought this was going to be and what it ended up being were two very different things. It turned out to be a very short, very boring account of the life of Jamie Dornan. I think I fell asleep half way through it. It starts out with him being born (even gives a time line in the back) then goes on to leading up to him being cast for the 50 Shades movie.
I really love biographies, but this one is just meh. I really think that the only reason this was even published was because of the movie. If he wouldn't have gotten the role this bio book wouldn't even exist. So many people have put so much into this franchise, trying to make a buck wherever they can. And this book is just one more push to make an additional few bucks.
Shades of Jamie Dornan is an in-depth account on everything from past relationships, to unknown roles that he has had (other than 50 and Once Upon a Time). For the Once Upon a Time one I didn’t even know it was him lol. So in the end this is a take it or leave it title for me!
