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.
This book is so enjoyable, just like being with her. I like the way she describes all of her cast and friends. This is very much a re-reader!

Recommended to folks familiar with Carol's work and the other famous people of her time in entertainment.
Carol tells stories well and ends each one in such a way that I can hear the laugh each one evokes in the silence of my car as I listen. This book has many stories about her meeting and getting to know other famous entertainers. Interesting, but not really what I was looking for. I wish her first book, which I understand is more personal and about hear early life growing up, were available on audiobook. I have a feeling that would be more exactly the kind of story I most enjoy.
Carol is Carol. Very much a storyteller and effusive in her use of voice and intonation.
More of the personal aspects. Not so much of the famous-connections --- though those were interesting, they only took me so far.
Thank you, Carol, for sharing your love and talent with us in so many ways for so many years. Many continued blessings in this life.
I like to listen to just about anything that has some enjoyable content. I like to listen on my way to and from work, sitting under a tree, on my way to sleep. Imagination is my best friend when it comes to listening to a good book!
I almost ran off the highway laughing at Carol. The book is right about feeling that Carol is a friend. I watched every episode of the first airing of the show and if I need a laugh, I watch the reruns. I cried, laughed and all the human emotions at once. VERY GOOD!
Her conversation with Marlon Brando. I have been in the same situation. Thank God for cordless phones!
The death of Harvey Corman.
You just have to read this one!!! I am looking forward to her next one!
upbeat, funny, heartwarming
Hearing Carol's story in her own words and in her own voice.
The unique tone, inflection and humor of Carol Burnett, telling her story herself.
No, I broke it up but that was O.K. because the chapters were fairly short.
I watched Carol Burnett's show growing up and am still prone to mimic her drawned out "Dewayne" or one of her Mama's characters. I loved her first autobiography; it's one of my keepers. This book was good, but lacked some of the emotional depth of the last book, which was what was so endearing about it. Enjoyable listen nonetheless.
Hearing Carol Burnett speak is worth the listen alone.
I felt like I was sitting across the table from her, just chatting; comfortable, relaxed flow and tone. I love her work, particularly the variety show, so it was fun to hear the backend stories.
That said, I think I would have found it a bit boring if I was not a fan. Just not quite enough meat or depth. No huge life lessons here.
Not really applicable
Nothing, really. I liked hearing it in her own voice and how she "heard" it.
yes, but I would not listen to a second time-the benchmark I use for books to become favorites.
If you love Carol, worth the listen! If only sort of like her, look elsewhere.
Yes, very engaging
Hearing it told in her voice
She truly pulled you into her various stories
I would recommended it if they are a fan of Carol Burnett's
Her meeting of Jimmy Stewart, Beverly Sills
No. It is little snippets of memory. I would do it two or three sittings.
Yes I would definitely recommend this audiobook. The stories and anecdotes were simply wonderful. When she spoke of family members and friends you felt that you were actually meeting these people. I laughed so hard at the Julie Andrews story in the hotel and I cried just as hard when she spoke of her young friend dying shortly after their meeting. She presents the characters with all their flaws, including herself, and you love them in spite of their imperfections. Ms. Burnett is a great storyteller.
Rob Lowe's autobiography. He tell his story very well also.
Jimmy Stewart and Gram.
"I'm So Glad We Had This Time Together"
This is my first time actually writing a review after many years of reading. That's how strongly I feel about this audiobook.
