I wanted to listen to a funny, interesting, emotional biographic take and that's exactly what I got. I wish it had been a little longer and had delved more into the after-effects of becoming sober, but overall this was a great book with an outstanding performance.
This was a good story but there was very little time spent on how she got sober and stays that way. I felt like the book was cut short in missing those details. Performance was good and so was the story.
Have always loved books and I find that as I have gotten older I find this way more enjoyable then listening to the radio.
this is a fantastic book I would tell everyone if you want a fabulous read this is for u
the Way she broke down the different types of addiction and how people who suffer from addiction are creative and brilliant but by the same token the always means there the sneekiest people around.
when she had her hair washed and how humbling it was to ask for help
Guts is a perfect title however a secound one would be, Can u see me
This is so well done, and added to that Kristen reading the story lets you have an insight into the sheer dept and the crazyness you can have as an addict. This is a book to learn from and to grow from and even better enjoy.
Filmmaker and artist in Los Angeles.
Guts is funny and brutally honest through the eyes of Kristen Johnston. I enjoy her perspective on everything going on and the comedic way she was able to describe some of the most horrible situations.
The bottom line is tell the truth. Be honest with yourself but lets face it, that's hard to do and she makes this clear.
I am also thrilled the author read her book. She has a lot of energy in the way she reads and to me it comes off exactly how she would be thinking it in her head which brings so much life into it.
Great story teller..funny but so honest..listened more than once, you laugh and cry at the same time!
My daughter and I are big 3rd Rock from the Sun fans, so I was really excited to hear this book. Johnston was amazingly funny and real in this book. Her story of her addiction was inspiring and very "real".
Wow, who knew? I loved it. I think it took guts just to put it out there. I love it and I love hearing it from her.
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!
