    In 20 years of show business, Lucille Ball had only modest and sporadic success. Her TV program, I Love Lucy, was her last chance to fulfill the ambition that had sustained her through the frustrations of her professional life and the anguish of a failing marriage. The role of Lucy Ricardo revealed her true gifts, but it changed her life immeasurably. This definitive portrait of Lucille Ball is based on the recollections of fellow performers, her closest friends and family, and Lucille herself.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. It gave me an insight to who Lucille Ball was and her challeges and comedic genius.


    What other book might you compare Lucille to and why?

    The Life and Time of Charlie Chaplin.


    What about C. M. Hébert’s performance did you like?

    She was okay. It took me a while to get use to her sleepy style voice. But, the more I got into the book, the more I got into the story and not her voice.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Not really. It was nice to listen while I went for a run each day. It gave me something to look forward to instead of running


    Any additional comments?

    You need more books on comedian biography. I just downloaded an Abbott and Costello book, and was disappointed that it wasn't a story, but instead, it was their radio show, which I'm enjoying. But, I prefer a story. There are so many great comedians, like Red Skelton, Milton Berle, Laurel and Hardy, Fanny Brice, Mabel Normand (which in the Chaplin book, it was covered a little). Thank you.
