She died mysteriously before she was forty  . What can I say after finishing Amelia Earhart: A Biography? It is a mighty fine book. This biography is intelligently written and perfectly paced. It is very linear, it doesn't go back and forth but follows the story of Amelia's life quite evenly. You get the feeling that every period of Amelia's life was of an interest to the biographer, and that seems to me a good thing.

I didn't finish it, which is unusual for me. It just didn't bring the people alive for me.

I've seen movies and read articles on Amelia Earhart and expected the book to cover similar ground on her life.
Surprised to find a legend who deserved by all measures of her character to be a heroine. Male biographers might have emphasized her flying skills and love of adventure. Doris Rich covered her social and emotional life in more detail than her flying feats. Too many heros are flawed people, she wasn't. I respect Amelia for her choices that benefitted her family, friends and country more than her own. She respected her fans and supporters with tireless public contact to be the best aviation spokesman in 1930's. This author tries to cover a complex persons life and gets the human side about right. Other books may detail the flying adventures better.

Well, so much for Amelia Earhart as a romantic figure, from a romantic moment in history. Gave me the details i wanted about her life though.

GREAT LADY.

Excellent story of Amelia Earhart's life. Seems well researched and grounded in fact. This book touches only briefly on theories about her disappearance, more focused on her life.
