First of all I would like to take this opportunity to thank Brenna at Plexus Publishing for sending us a copy of Being Benedict Cumberbatch in exchange for an honest review.
Now I’m not a huge Benedict Cumberbatch fangirl but I do love Sherlock and I know a few Cumberbitches….. so there was a few people very interested in this new biography and I was keen to check it out.
Being Benedict is illustrated with lots of pictures of the new star which I’m sure some of the girls out there will enjoy greatly. The book covers Benedicts life from the back story of his parents, his early childhood, school days through to his early career and more recent rise to fame, with lots of little facts and trivia bits thrown in for good measure.
Its a real quick, easy read and to be honest I doubt there’s much in the book that will surprise those hard core fans, but none the less its an enjoyable book and written in true fan girl style.. if your a hardcore Cumberbitch or just got a little crush you’ll probably want to check it out.
I am fairly new to the world of Benedict, but after seeing various blogger friends swooning over Mr B and Sherlock, I found myself compelled to find out more. I was instantly hooked by Sherlock and found myself instantly becoming a huge fan of Benedict, so this book had huge appeal.
Being Benedict is full to the brim with photographs of every occasion and gives a fabulous insight to the life of Benedict. I loved the lay out and formatting of this book, it was appealing to the eye and made the book a quick and east read. Being Benedict is full of trivia and fascinating facts which I thoroughly enjoyed devouring, enabling me to learn more about this highly praised and admired actor.
As Amy said before, this is a book to check out if you have even the slightest crush on Mr B… It is well worth the read!
