I learned about Valerie and her famous Rhoda from Kathy Griffin's book (which is so good!). I had never seen Mary Tyler's show or Rhoda. I loved Valerie's story. It's very interesting and inspiring. Unlike Kathy's book, this book is not packed with jokes, it's just interesting to hear about someone trying so hard to get what they wanted. Her perseverance and her extremely positive attitude towards everything in her life are very admirable. It did make me regret not knowing abut her when she performed in so many wonderful plays. I would have loved to watch her in "Looped" or "The Tale of the Allergist's wife"
When she gets the part for Rhoda
Too many to mention
Just get it
The premise of the story is interesting. Unfortunately, the author waists a lot of time with detailed descriptions and repeating the same things over and over. It makes for a lengthy book that's not very interesting since very little actually happens.
No. It's not very entertaining
Yes, the narrator did a good job. I wouldn't call it an amazing job like other books I've heard but not bad.
Go back to listening other series such as Morganville Vampires
It was entertaining enough
The book wasn't bad. It did feel kinda short. It was unclear who the main character was and it was hard to follow at times. It's not really a biography. It's a weird book. Not bad, not great. I'd be inclined to read some of her other books, though.
It's not likely that I would listen again since I'll probably remember the story for a long time. It was very interesting and moving.
The different relationships felt very real. The twist at the end was very unexpected.
This is my only one and it was very impressive. Noah is extremely talented and can really make you believe a different character is speaking.
I don't want to give it away.
Very good listen
I would have wanted to hear more details about her career. More about her experiences working on so many movies and interactions with different stars.
No. They would find it very boring after the first part.
The first part of the book is good. Goldie describes her childhood and all the way to the beginning of her career. After that it goes into a self-indulgent description of her love of India and her charity work. A couple of movie projects barely get a mention in passing. Most don't at all. I would have wanted to hear all about her movies with Steve Martin and so many other wonderful films (e.g. First Wives Clubs).
The other stuff could have been placed in between like so many other stars have done. I, Rhoda is a great example.
