Publisher's Summary

When actress Claudia Christian flees a troubled childhood and moves to Hollywood at age 17, she steps through the looking glass into another world.
From the set of Dallas to her starring role on the sci-fi series Babylon 5, Claudia's affairs with billionaires, supermodels, rock stars, and celebrities are mixed with shootings, stalking, heartbreak, and betrayal. On set and off, drama follows Claudia - an alcohol-fueled coke run and makeout session with a bridesmaid on her wedding day; her tempestuous, love-hate relationship with actor Angus Macfadyen; the conspiracy theories surrounding her ex-husband's death; and a 20-year on-and-off relationship with billionaire Dodi Fayed before he dated Princess Diana. Hollywood life takes its toll on Claudia as she descends into alcohol addiction and a desperate battle to reclaim her life.
Rehab, alternative treatments, and even hypnotism can't break the cycle of alcohol abuse that threatens to destroy Claudia. Close to despair she discovers The Sinclair Method, a treatment that saves her life.
Sometimes shocking, often humorous, always captivating Babylon Confidential is a story of hope that will inspire and enlighten you.

An Enlightening Listen

Babylon Confidential exposes Claudia Christian's life, loves and troubles in the raw. I found it interesting as a fan of Claudia's work to see the path she has taken through her career and the challenges both professional and self imposed she has lived through. Part Hollywood kiss and tell, part honest memoir but all from the heart it showed me life's path never really runs smooth and being rich and famous can have serious consequences too.
Overall I enjoyed it and recommend it if you like Hollywood autobiography, science fiction or Claudia's work in general.

The Voice of a hero.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes.
This is a story of how Fate can spin us around, if we want it or not.
The story has to levels, the outer Hollywood jetset line, and the inner self reproaching level.


What was one of the most memorable moments of Babylon Confidential?

Reading the story about her brother Patrick was actually hard.
Hearing Claudia actually reading it, was almost devastating.
I can't believe she made it, even if I know she had to stop several times.


Which character – as performed by Claudia Christian – was your favourite?

Herself


Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Yes, many.
She told her story to ME.
I work with these things as a councellor, and her case could easily landed in my in-tray. Very honest, very brave.


Any additional comments?

I really recommend this book, and specially the audiobook to everyone.
Hearing her own words narrated by herself is just impressive.
