Pity that Judi herself only gives us a welcome to the book which is read by one of her closest friends. Other than that, a delightful account of the life of one of our era's most talented--and honest--performers.
I bought this audiobook lured by the promise of a wonderful collection of Marple stories. While they are excellent, the reader is a total disappointment. The pace is totally boring and lulls you to sleep, plus she sometimes is almost incomprehensible. There is no spunk in terms of portraying the different characters and emotion is barely conveyed. I had to stop listening to it because the awful reading truly irritated me.
Good on the whole but falls short of expectations in some parts. As an homage to her mother, Ms Keaton does an admirable job. However, the narrative gets lots at points. Nevertheless, an enjoyable listen
Carrie is truly a survivor in every sense of the word. Her adaptation of the one-woman show by the same name of the book is truly sensational. I have to admit to many a moment of embarrassment as I burst out in laughter while listening to her on the subway. While her story has profoundly sad moments, her overall attitude to life, after everything she's gone through is a message of hope to many. Well done, Carrie! And thanks for sharing!
