I didn't read the print version. The performance was well done, so I tend to prefer a good audio performance in general to the voice in my head while reading. Plus, I won't crash my car when enjoying the book.
I enjoyed the complex, yet believable characters in this book. The situations were a little out there but many of the real-life facts help to keep the story grounded.
I have not listened to any other Kathleen Wilhoite performances to know how this one compares.
Absolutely. I had trouble hitting the pause button once I started listening.
I would like to hear more from this author. This book was very entertaining and well worth anyone's time to listen. I used this book as a breather from my usual long historical novels. Thanks for the oasis, Maria Semple!
Insightful, Fun, Remembrance
It was read by Carol herself, which made the back stories of her history all the sweeter to listen to.
Mrs. Whiggins, Starlett O'Hara (a tie)
Carol Burnett fans will enjoy hearing about how her career developed and how the supporting cast and special guests of her show all became part of her story. It really made me miss the TV programming of our country's past--clean, funny and family friendly!
