I've listened to a couple memoirs read by the author now and I have come to the realization that I would prefer them to just tell us the story rather than to be reading the book... I guess that's my own problem - I should probably avoid the memoirs :) Although the passage about the death of her daughter was heartrending and her emotionality did add to the experience.
Thoroughly enjoyed listening to this lovely lady. There are so many good books out there, that it is hard to find the time to re-read anything. This one is so good and short enough, that I am sure I will return to it often. I only wish other books by her and read by her were on Audible!
I am not a huge Carol Burnett fan, but I have always enjoyed her wit and creativity. She reveals what a normal person she is and shares many lovely inside stories and personal life experiences.
I like to laugh!
Carol still has me laughing.... she sweetly tells of her start in the business and the subsequent 40 some years... with anecdotes and confessions .... if you need a mood boost this is a good one to try.
Truly Inspirational...Carol Burnett is my hero. I enjoyed every single minute of this book. I laughed and cried along with her. I feel that she is my friend.
Thank you Mrs. Burnett.
Very charming and lovely book reflective of Carol's personality. You will not be disappointed if you like Carol Burnett.
Loved hearing Carol's voice because no one else could have made it work. Would have liked to hear more about her personal life.
This is a wonderful audiobook and the fact that Carol Burnett reads it, is just icing on the cake! I enjoyed every single word and every story! Best audiobook I've listed to this year!!
Carol Burnett gives a splendid performance reading this audiobook, award-worthy, in my opinion. The stories range from hilarious to heart-breaking. To hear them in her voice is to savor her talent, but what I appreciated most is her courage, kindness, and gratitude.
