You know, I don't know that I've ever listened to an audio book more than once, but I would definitely considering listening to this one. Kristen's narration is wonderful and the story is heartbreaking.
I listen to audio books during my hour long commute in the mornings and afternoons and this morning I barely remember how I got to work.
I still have a few hours left of the book, but I was tearing up when she talked about the doctor who stopped to hold her hand when she was scared.
This book is really touching and interesting and funny. I'm a big reader, but I'm glad I got the audio book because Kristen's narration adds so much to this story. I got it on a whim with one of my credits and had no idea I would like it so much.
Brilliant. Raw. Candid.
Hard to compare with other audiobooks except maybe David Sedaris, who has the same ability to make you laugh while telling a heart-wrenching story.
That voice. That voice. That voice is MADE for audiobooks. Kristin is one of the rare performers who has the looks to match that mesmerizing voice.
Kristin Johnston transformed what could have been a grim story through her brilliant humor and delivery.
I really liked it. It's a little short but i think it's worth a credit. She doesn't pull any punches and takes ownership of her wild choices. Over all a good listen. caution; lots of talk about drug use.
A gadabout with no room for heavy books, so love the audio ones.
Every word of this book was entertaining. I haven't laughed and smiled that much listening to any other book. She didn't just read the book, she performed it, and I loved every minute. But it was too short.
Yes, definitely - loved the conversational style
It just kind of ended, a little on the "sell out" side, but okay.
No, this the the first one and I look forward to more
Didn't specifically inspire me, but I enjoyed her story and experience
Liked it, but wished it went a little a little deeper, perhaps I am shallow, but I kind of wanted more dirt. Worthwhile purchase though.
So I bought this book and read it but then I decided to buy the audio book cause I thought it would be great to hear Kristen read her own book. I didn't think it would be possible but I love it even more than when I read it myself. It made me laugh and love her even more!
Kristen of course.
Laugh and laugh and laugh and go, uh huh been there, done that. We have had similar experiences and I can totally relate to her and her story.
Kristen is amazing and has incredible talent as a writer as well as an actress.
I'm only assuming so because the book is read by the author. Nobody can do it like the author. And Kristen's voice is one of my favorites of all time.
Her childhood...being bullied...and sticking up for her brother, and it backfiring. Just one of those frustrating, seemingly no-win sort of childhoods.
Probably when she knew, over and over again, that she had a problem -- a terrible addiction -- but yet, she just couldn't seem to talk her mind into doing something about it. And her loneliness. It just made me sick.
Kristen Johston is an extremely talented actress and WRITER (with a great voice). She is so very intelligent -- I had no idea...I loved her as the funny girl! I missed her after 3rd Rock, and I always hoped that she was in a great place. Sadly she wasn't, which explained her appearance in Bride Wars. Kristen's stories are a bittersweet listen, and I loved every single minute. I love this book and I've recommended it to everyone.
Her honesty with humor and her narration
The fact that she is sharing this story to help others
When she got sober and clean at the end
This is an amazingly raw honest bio read by an amazing voice narrator. I was compelled to listen to it all in one sitting. And I want to listen to it again as I am sure I missed some funny subtle parts.
It is really eye opening for everyone dealing with their addictions or the addictions or loved ones and how to think about our lives.
Thank you so much Kristen! Please write more!
i hope Kristen Johnston writes and performs another book! I hope this book finds its way into the recovery community.
