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.
Years ago at the very worst time in my life I happened to catch on TV an old episode of the Carol Burnett Show. Wow, laughter is truly healing. So when I think of Carol Burnett I think of laughter. What a wonderful legacy to leave the world, what a wonderful book, what an absolutely wonderful woman!
Hearing Carols words...so comforting...what stories!!
Carol is so down to earth...and hearing the Lawrence Olivier story...LOL!
Every scene...how could you choose just one?
The story of Cathy...the story of Carrie - heartbreaking, tearjerking
I've grown up w/Carol Burnett...she surely doesn't disappoint. I learned a lot about her life & of course respect & LOVE her even more.
funny, classy well written book, you get to know Carol Burnett on a different level. very refreshing very good read.
hearing about the carol burnett show days, and what happened behind the scene stuff you dont know about.
very professional,very clearly spoken, easy to understand, keeps you very interested in the book, you dont want to put it down.
made me laugh alot.
looking forward to her next book...Thanks carol
Yes, if the friend wanted to listen to a light book. I like Carol Burnett, and enjoyed her performances on T.V., but the book is not a deep one.
I would recommend it to my friends, depending on their reading preferences.
I enjoy her voice and her acting ability makes the stories better.
No...I have been listening to this slowly..in airports, on planes, etc.
I love audible to listen to my books while commuting in the SF Bay Area. It makes the time go by so fast and keeps me engrossed.
Her story is perfect for this type of book and she lets us into the backstage info and fun from her great TV show.
Loved watching her on TV and it was interesting to hear how she started and how the other members of her cast came to the show.
Always loved Carol and wished they had shows like this on TV today
Carol did just as she does in all of her shows and just talks like she would to a friend. I loved her way of expression and her stories. Whether about herself or another, funny or serious. All of her stories were enjoyable.
The plus being that she read the book, yet it didn't feel like a read, but more as her just talking, which since it was her book as told by her, was just talking.
Throughout Carol's life I have watched her on TV and movies and have adored her and have always believed she was a "Real" person. After reading this book I find I have been right all along. Thank you Carol for sharing yourself with us.
