This was a fascinating portrait of the tragic life of heiress Christine Onassis.

This was a fascinating portrait of the tragic life of heiress Christine Onassis. The daughter of legendary shipping magnate Aristotle Onassis, she grew up with riches to spare, but lived a life that was ultimately sad, short, and unfulfilled. The author makes this tale extremely absorbing, and even those who have no interest in the intricacies of Greek business deals will find the story a fascinating one.

I noticed this book at some point when I worked in a library; probably attracted by the title, I briefly looked through it and became aware of Christina Onassis' unhappy life, but was not interested in reading about the life of some heiress. Recently, I decided to read it, because I thought I might possibly find some inspiration for a certain character in a novel I'm writing. Just because of the subject matter, I can't recommend this book.

by William Wright-1991. Tell me, Dler's, what do you remember hearing about Christina's life? I would love to find a book depicting the marriage to Ari Onassis from Jackie's point-of-view. Has anyone else read this? I've just about finished it. Towards the end of her short life, when I was in my early teens, I always read stories about her in magazines like Paris Match, Hello magazine, and the like. Those stories seemingly never even stratched the surface of her troubled life. Christina apparently never liked Jackie, but oddly enough, after Ari's death, Christina would supposedly always visit Jackie whenever she was visiting New York.

  • Exellent
Christina was born in my year, 1950; I've read everything available, concerning her & the Onassis family, as well as those covering the years Jackie Kennedy Onassis shared their lives. Such sad, tragic endings, especially for Christina & her brother; amazing read! Glad to have another copy, after losing mine from years ago.
  • Dobpota
A quixotic, misunderstood woman, borderline? Lonely tragic and sensual. Elusive to the end to the people who constantly snatched her from herself and forced her to wear the mask of a true greek tragedy: money power, dealings (she even dealt with Jackie) abortions, death, life. All so young, so soon. An Antigone an electra, but maybe not, just a life.

It didn't come with its dust jacket-otherwise its OK
  • Malalanim
The whole story was a sad life for poor CHristina Onanasis
  • Berenn
Sad story about a rich and lonely child who grew into a rich and lonely woman. A great read for voyeurs of the rich and famous. Money can make you comfortable and even a bit crazy but it never will make you happy. This was fascinating and cautionary tale at the same time. Christina never understood was real love was...love of yourself. She sought love from men and even bought friendships. Book is chocked full of juicy tidbits about her indulgences. Her death is still a mystery in some places. Her struggles with her weight and her obsessive need for cases of Coca-Cola...paints a tragic tale. Good read.
Smooth read. very intriguing. Expedited quickly, too!
