Recommended to folks familiar with Carol's work and the other famous people of her time in entertainment.
Carol tells stories well and ends each one in such a way that I can hear the laugh each one evokes in the silence of my car as I listen. This book has many stories about her meeting and getting to know other famous entertainers. Interesting, but not really what I was looking for. I wish her first book, which I understand is more personal and about hear early life growing up, were available on audiobook. I have a feeling that would be more exactly the kind of story I most enjoy.
Carol is Carol. Very much a storyteller and effusive in her use of voice and intonation.
More of the personal aspects. Not so much of the famous-connections --- though those were interesting, they only took me so far.
Thank you, Carol, for sharing your love and talent with us in so many ways for so many years. Many continued blessings in this life.
This book was very hard to follow as an audiobook. I think as a printed book, reading it visually, it would be somewhat easier to follow and understand his points. I also got the sense there were small but crucial diagrams in the printed book that were not available in the audio version. As a visual person, I found I really needed those. Perhaps later in the book this is not an issue .... I don't know as I wasn't able to get that far. It was impenetrable for me on audio.
Overly complicated and very repetitive!
Have a professional voice actor/audiobook performance artist do it. Some authors can read their own stuff great, others no so much.
I'm sure it does since this book was recommended to me by someone whose judgement and knowledge I trust and admire, but I couldn't get far enough into the audiobook personally to find them.
