There is honestly no way to truly "rate" this compilation. Because that's what it is: a compilation, not a "book" or a "memoir" or an "autobiography/biography". If you are a fan of Marilyn Monroe and wish to know more about her--in her own words--then this is a must-read. But it's not an easy read. In fact, it's downright difficult. Difficult to see how truly sad this amazing woman was, and difficult because these are mostly random thoughts and therefore do not have the best grammar. I'm not harping on Marilyn's grammar by any means - this is just a warning that some of the notes are a bit tough to wade through.
I rate this compilation 4/5 stars, my qualm with it being that I just can't help but think that Marilyn Monroe would have wanted many of these notes published.
