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
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.
I saw her live about 5 years ago at a Q & A session that preceded the showing of one of her old movies. She had a wonderful, earthy sense of humor as she answered questions and seamlessly wove in hilarious anecdotes that invariably involved another famous person. And while I realize that hearing someone read their memoir is not the same experience as a live Q & A I was not prepared for how incredibly stilted this book would sound. Her inflection was by turns breathless and brassy as she constantly wanders off on namedropping tangents with no real payoff. If you drank a shot every time you heard "my dear, dear friend" (insert celebrity name here) you would be dead of alcohol poisoning before you were halfway through the book. While the woman is undeniably a survivor and one of the few remaining links to old Hollywood this book would have benefitted from sharper (or any, for that manner) editing.
A fabulous trip down Hollywood Memory Lane by one of the finest and funniest artists. Debbie 's a great listen!
She really tells it like it was and is for her. Honest and fun story. Takes you through some bad times, good times, and shares her love for life and movies and performing.
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.
