The name of this book should be Remembering the Sweet Inspirations and the career of Cissy Houston. It finally gets to Whitney, but only after many chapters about how Cissy's career started and how poor her had to give it up for her children. She was the one supporting everyone you know, no one would have made it without her.
Remembering Whitney was excellent. The story narrated by Robin Miles who I have admired as Ms Whitney"s business manager. The performance and the overall narration of Ms Miles was enjoyable. As for the story written by Ms Houston, it was excellent and informative. The entire book was remarkable.
I WOULD MOST CERTAINLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK TO ANYONE. IT WAS SO MUCH MORE THAN I THOUGHT IT WOULD BE, I TOTALLY ENJOYED IT.
THE WAY MS. CISSY WROTE, SHE WAS HONEST, FUNNY, WITTY AND LOVING.
ROBIN READ BEAUTIFULLY, I COULD IMAGINE MS. CISSY SPEAKING THOSE VERY WORDS. EXCELLENT NARRATION.
IT MADE ME DO BOTH, I'M A HUGE FAN OF WHITNEY HOUSTON SO IT TOOK A WHILE FOR ME TO READ THIS BOOK, I HAD TO PREPARE MYSELF FOR WHATEVER I MIGHT READ. I'M SO GLAD I READ IT WHEN I DID IT WAS RIGHT ON TIME, LEARNED SOME NEW THINGS AND ABOUT WHITNEY HOUSTON AND REMEMBERED OLD MEMORIES AND PERFORMANCES. SUPERB BOOK!!!
THIS BOOK WAS NOT JUST ABOUT WHITNEY HOUSTON'S LIFE BUT HER MOTHER, HER BROTHERS, HER FATHER AND FRIENDS AND CLOSE RELATIVES, IT GIVES A DEEPER INSIGHT ON THE HOUSTON FAMILY AND I'M GRATEFUL FOR THAT.
married, mother of 1 daughter, and grandson. Love to cook, sew, music buff, hard worker.
The truth, coming from her mother.
Cissy Houston, talking about her daughter with as much honesty as a mother can give up!
Not particularly, I found the entire book to be moving, emotional, truthworthy.
If you read nothing else about Whitney Houston, read/listen to this book!
I am a huge Whitney fan and it was so insightful to hear from her mother what she was truly like.
The only problem I had with this selection, is that Cisssy Houston spent a fair amount of time talking about her own life. I really did think that this would be exclusively about Whitney.
Oh wow! I couldn't help but cry while listening to this book. I am really struggling to review this personal story of a mother's love and tragic loss! This is truly a beautiful story even though it breaks my heart.
Amazing, courrageous mother!
Ms. Cissy Houston, of course! As a mother of 5 and grandmother of 8, i totally understand what she went through, the pain, the worries, the sleepless nights, the love to her children. The love and worries doesn't end with our children, it continues when we start having grandchildren. It's like starting all over.
Ms. Robin Miles is the lady who read the book, huh? Well, let me tell you. She read that book as if she was Ms. Cissy. She represented Ms. Cissy so well it's just amazing. Ms. Miles should be reading your books if the authors cannot read them. She puts her heart into the story and keeps your interest. There has been books that i buy and then don't read when i hear the booring voice of the reader. Even some authors read so horribly you want to stop reading, example: andy williams. i love his singing voice, but his reading voice is just a no no!
Yes, when her son called her to inform her that Whitney was dead. I cried so much at that moment.
I love Ms. Cissy and Ms. Miles. Two amazing ladies.
I didn't have to read it.
It was just a good enjoyable book. It's a book you want to keep listening to.
Wow, Robin Miles did a great job. She had me thinking for a minute that she was Cissy Houston.
Never thought of that.
Love the book!!!
I would like to listen to this book again because I am sure I will pick up things I did not hear the first time. Also this book is very nice to relax and listen to!
This Audio Book was just very well done, what more can I say!
I did not listen to this book all at once but I did fine it hard to put down.
You will enjoy this book even it you were not a big Whitney fan.
The book, reading and story was AWESOME! I felt like I was sitting with Cissy and wanted to just give her a hug. I LOVED IT!
Made me teary.
