Loved it!!!! Debbie Reynolds' life has been full of high highs and some very low lows and she pulls no punches in describing these .... but always with humour. Her delicious Texan accent, not heard in many of her movies, is slight but it's there and it adds to the charm of this book. I totally loved this book and would recommend it to anyone who is interested in Hollywood and wonderful woman who truly is "unsinkable"!!
There is no 'story' here, just Debbie Reynolds whining about her past divorces and how the world had dumped on her. She made very poor choices in men and finances, yet she takes no responsibility for it. Therefore the book is just a 'woe is me' diatribe.
Not really, I love biographies and autobiographies.
Everything! While I admire Ms Reynold's age and applaud her for being a survivor, the narration of this book is painful as she struggles to finish each sentence and then have the breath for the next.
I better not answer this :)
Don't waste your money on this.
Yes, it was well written and the narrator made it more interesting...she helped you feel like she was speaking directly to you
none, there is only one Debbie Reynolds
all were good
I loved this autobiography and it was an extra bonus that it was narrated by the author. She is witty, self-deprecating, and full of great stories from Hollywood and her adventurous life. If you are looking for a good celebrity read, this is a great choice.
Love & Light and Blessings so Bright!
I Love Debbie
Debbie because she's the best
I laughed and wept she is an amazing lady
Debbie baby you rock, Kudos and Kisses
I am very sorry to criticise such a wonderful star but her narrating is just woeful. It sounds like she has had a stroke; her pauses are all in the wrong place. She pauses like there's a full stop and then she continues on with that sentence. Pretty poor. I haven't been able to finish the book it's that bad.
Debbie re-hashes the same old stories. Nothing new here.
Although I like Reynolds, she's not good at narrating her own story. It sounded like she was reading it, complete with pauses as she turned the page.
Maybe choosing another narrator.
Everything she already put in her previous book.
Debbie, we've heard the story. Stop writing books like this.
This book doesn't have a story. It's just a bunch of random stuff about her business dealings, divorces, financial tribulations, debts, etc. I'm not really sure why she wrote this book.
The detail from Debbie and the inside scoop of famous actors
Where she is at the auction of all her memorabilia from MGM days
How I fought and finally won
This book is tough to put down. Debbie is such a fine person and she had bad luck, but came through..........truly UNSINKABLE !
Same place as most celebrity memoirs. Fun to listen to.
Debbie seems like such a spunky woman with a great sense of humor. I also love Todd for having been there for her through everything.
This was the first one.
What happened behind the scenes of one of the longest running "America's Sweethearts".
Ya gotta love Debbie Reynolds. A trooper, a survivor, an eternal optimist. And cute as a button even at 80 years old!
