Hearing Kristin tell the stories in her own voice, just made this book tops!
I would for her Kristin's comic one liners and sense of humour. Her beautiful voice is wonderful as narrator.
The ending was more or less like the rest of the book. A solid story about her life in showbiz from her pageant days, and ballet classes right up until she was on our TV screens.
I have only ever watched her on TV in Pushing Daisies ,and Four Christmases and Deck The Halls. I think she is a lovely actress !!
Yes there was a few moments that were emotional. When she talked about her birth mother, and her adopted family , and when there was a death in the family, and she was on a plane when she got the news..I just wanted to give her a hug!!!
Kristin has just about the worst luck when she is flying .. I liked how she explained her treatment by staff on her flight. You never think it could happen to a celebrity. Her love for her adopted family is also worth a mention. It was very touching to listen to.
This got off to a rough start for me, since the first chapter mainly consisted of her complaining about air travel (not interesting) and talking about her big Southern family and how close they all are (I also have a big Southern family and I do not like it one bit, so I just could not connect). But once she started talking about her career, I was hooked. There were a few other chapters that felt a little weak, but for the most part, this was funny and very entertaining, and I looked forward to getting in the car everyday before and after work to listen to it, and am a little sad that it's over. This is my second celebrity autobiography in the last couple months, and I have surprisingly reeeeeally been enjoying them. Who knew? On to Julie Andrews!
Thank you Kristin Chenoweth for this amazing gift. She tells the story in a way that is all her own, her voice is soft, yet not at all boring, her wit is great, not overwhelming. If you are in doubt, think no more. This book was one of the best books I've heard from audible. Congratulations Kristin for writing it and reading it so marvelously!!!
I bought this in the hopes that it would be good listening for a few long drives. I couldn't wait to listen to it all! This is one of those books that is better presented as an audio. You are delivered the one liners with perfect timing. I have never watched Ms. Chenoweth do anything significant, only cameo work, but had a sense that she was a character. It's like she is sitting next to you in the car recounting her life thus far. Wonderul experience!
This was written to entertain... And it succeeds... It goes way too fast... Suddenly, sadly it's over... This talented lady has presented her life so far (with its ups and downs) so you smile often and feel the passion all the way through... Truly meant to entertain and enlighten... Thank you Miss Chenoweth... Please continue...
This book is wonderfully written and narrated. Prior to this I had only seen several of Ms. Chenoweth's on TV performances, but her wit and narration, as well as her interesting story, will prompt me to see more. Her story keeps you listening and will keep you entertained. I loved listening to her narration, I hope she narrates more books in the future. A must read.
Oh my Gosh, I had no Idea what a funny talented southern Belle Kristin is. I Absolutely LOVED this book. I dont EVER read stuff that is light or lithy, but this book is light and sweet and serious and interesting. I could have listened to another ten hours of her stories. Many many people will identify with her humor and dry wit. I absolutely recommend reading this book.
I've just finished listening to Kristin Chenoweth reading her book--Kristin's reading style is breezy and feels like a "just us girls" gossip session with your best friend. I enjoyed hearing stories of her early life and career moves and laughed out loud many times. I disagree with one of the other reviews because I loved the story of her hair extensions--after all, who hasn't had a bad hair day?
Even if you don't know Kristin's stage or screen work, her book is so much fun you'll still enjoy it. If you are already a fan as I am, you'll love it even more
This was great easy listening. Kristin is fun and interesting, spawning just enough sarcasm to keep her grounded. Her writing reminds me of Tori Spelling's books. Just fun.
