Stories of how it all began, great Hollywood friendships and moments... I only wish it were longer! What a wonderful, fascinating woman--and what a life!
What a character! Carol Burnett is a sweetie pie & doesn't hold back on her funny stories!
Anybody that is a fan of hers will not be disappointed!!!
this book is a book of Carol Burnett's laughter and reflections as it says in the title. I love Carol Burnett I love the sound of your voice and I couldn't be happier about reading this book. thank you Carol.
I enjoyed the audio as its read by its author and the one who experienced it all....
If you grew up watching this show it is a joyful revisitation to earlier times...
Heartfelt. Moving at times.
I listened all the way through "without putting it down"...
Christian, Texan, electrician, lover of reading-I lean towards Sci-fi/fantasy but enjoy the classics, history, and science titles also.
Yes, I would. This mini biography is narrated by Carol and I believe it gives the reader a good feel for who she is.
I might compare it to Tina Fey's book if Tina didn't try so hard to make you laugh and force political views down your throat. Carol just lays it out there and the humor comes through naturally.
I enjoyed all the aurhor's anecdotes but particularly when she met Jimmy Stewart and when she was caught by Ladybird Johnson pretending to smooch Julie Andrews.
I laughed aloud several times. I really enjoyed when she discussed her wooden leg.
I would love to meet this woman and give her a great big hug. She and her cohorts have been a family staple my entire life. She and I are friends, we just haven't met yet.
If you are a Carol Burnett fan then this is the book for you. It will enlighten you, make you laugh, and sometimes bring you to tears.
I grew up watching Carol Burnett and each week it felt like she invited us into her life. To know some of the behinds the scenes that went on, how Carol and her family lived outside of the show, and the people and animals she helped along the way is inspiring.
Listen to her tell her own story. Better than reading the book.
I liked the stories that Carol has to tell and many were laugh out loud and others were very sad. Like all lives, she has had her ups and downs and it was nice to re-experience them with her.
My biggest issue was with some of Carol's inflections. It is certainly her style of speak, but she often ends sentences with a question mark even if they don't warrant? It got a little too much? So I tried to just enjoy the story? You get the point...
No, I would not listen to another book written/narrated by Carol Burnett.
As she is a noted comedienne, I had expected a recollection with more warmth and/or humor. Found neither and became bored.
She narrated her life well.
If the book was made into a movie, I would not pay $ to see it. The book was a real turn-off.
