One thought on “Some Sunny Day

  1. Jordan

    I thank Captain America The First Avenger for my love of WWII era music, and there are very few musicians of the time that I love than the lovely Vera Lynn As Vera mentions in Some Sunny Day, there was something about her voice and the changing times that made her popular, and whether it s those reasons or some sense of nostalgia for times when people truly looked out for and helped their neighbors, I found myself falling in love with Vera s music the first time I heard it I made sure to listen [...]

    Ok, my nan gave me this book to pass to my godmother However I thought I might read it before passing it on This type of book didn t appeal to me at first but, I shocked myself as I read the first couple of pages I was hooked and struggled to put it down as it was so good Ok for some of you are probably wondering who Dame Vera Lynn is like I did, Well she used to sing to the army and this is an extrodinary autobiography The story takes us through the changing popular music scene in Britain in th [...]

    What a history Dame Vera was a brave woman who saw a lot, experienced a lot, and contributed a lot to history I love her music, and I loved reading her story.

  4. Anna Ciddor

    Listened on very well read audio A bit self congratulatory but pleasant, interesting and enjoyable autobiography

  5. Becky

    Currently reading Vera is one of my favourite singers, so I HAD to get this book and know her story I m not at all interested in the war, just want to know her story I really like her as a person and in her 90 s she is a very happy, friendly and outgoing person I m astounded I m a little concerned about what I may read I may find disturbing or if I will get through this and still be interested, as in only 19, not 70 So I hope I can get through it alright

  6. PastAllReason

    Dame Vera Lynn s autobiography is interesting in her description of her childhood, growing up as a child performer in a working class family It is moving in her description of her war time tour travelling through Gibraltar, Egypt, and then on eastward through Iraq and Burma as she performed for the troops What is somewhat puzzling to me is her notable hard to miss failure to address the War s end.

  7. Nina

    This book really didnt match my expectations In places I was bored, especially in the post war period.I also had to roll my eyes when she kept saying its not like nowadays or not like children today etc etc I really didnt enjoy reading her stereotyped and presumptuous attitude to this group of people.

  8. Penny Linsenmayer

    The post WWII section dragged, mainly I suppose because her career never took off after those Golden Years I enjoyed the WWII section the most, but I also was not aware of her special relationship with the Queen Mum I also thought she had some poignant thoughts back on her life and accomplishments in the last chapter.

  9. Joy

    Sometimes it s the little things that counts and when you look back they were big things to the people you have come across with That s what this woman did during the war She made a difference through her music It wasn t easy during her time but she did it anyway What an inspiring woman

  10. Nicki

    I did enjoy reading about Vera Lynn All I really new about her was that she was the forces sweetheart during WW2 this a fascinating account of her life before and after the war.

  11. Robin Fox

    It s certainly worth a read, and Dame Vera certainly has a story to tell, but this is a book which will appeal far to the mature reader
