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.
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!
From the beginning to the end, Debbie Reynolds keeps the listener engaged. She took me into her world of friendships, disappointments, marriages and MGM.
The auction in which Marilyn Monroe's white dress from " The Seven Year Itch" was sold to the highest bidder.
Debbie Reynold's detailed account of the making of the movie Mother.
The title Unsinkable. I don't like the question. Kinda stupid.
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.
This is the first audio book I've actually read through completely, so this question would be hard to answer for me. From what I have heard listening to others, while checking to see what would interest me, is the reading by Ms. Reynolds was my only complaint. It was a little distracting. I know it was her story and her right to read it, but she didn't read it like it was.
I was really taken back by how badly she was treated by the men in her life. It really makes you understand how hard it is for someone who makes a lot of money to find someone honest and caring. It makes it clear why someone like Debbie can't find personal happiness. If you marry someone successful in the same business there's competition with egos. If you marry outside it's hard to find someone who isn't a shyster.
I read her first book, but most of it was already things I've already known from following her career over the last 60 years and the news This book got down to the nitty gritty and filled in areas that weren't covered before. I was enlightened about many questions I had been curious about.
I think I was surprised at how much she was taken advantage of. I'd heard from her interviews and first book about Eddie Fisher and Harry Karl, but her last husband was new information, for sure. That marriage wasn't news. I knew she remarried a third husband, but most things about that marriage wasn't known. I don't know how she managed to survive so much. You would think there would be a law to protect people from fraudulence like this. They have stupid laws for everything else. This man should be in prison.
The only other thing that I would add that's worth mentioning, I guess, is to thank Ms. Reynolds for clearing up all the bad information that is out there, and for so many years of good entertainment. I had the pleasure of seeing one of her shows, back in the 80's at Harrah's in Reno. I became aware of her when I was about 11 watching "Tammy" No matter how old she will get, she will always be a beautiful Debbie. She never changes!
As a fan for over 60 years, I was pleased to hear of the ups and downs with success at the end of Debbie's life.
