    “Mom loved adages, quotes, slogans. There were always little reminders pasted on the kitchen wall. For example, the word THINK. I found THINK thumbtacked on a bulletin board in her darkroom. I saw it Scotch-taped on a pencil box she’d collaged. I even found a pamphlet titled THINK on her bedside table. Mom liked to THINK.” So begins Diane Keaton’s unforgettable memoir about her mother and herself. In it you will meet the woman known to tens of millions as Annie Hall, but you will also meet, and fall in love with, her mother, the loving, complicated, always thinking Dorothy Hall.

    ronald says: "Wonderful. Sad. Hopeful."

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

    Yes. She did a very good job writing it, and a great job reading it.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Diane's reading of her own words -- genuine emotions as punctuation.


    What about Diane Keaton???s performance did you like?

    It was fantastic -- as though she was reading the book to me.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I laughed with her and cried with her.


    Any additional comments?

    Don't be snobby about the fact that it's Diane Keaton and therefore not highbrow. Just read it.

  • What Remains: A Memoir of Fate, Friendship, and Love

    What Remains begins with loss and returns to loss. A small plane plunges into the ocean, carrying John Kennedy, Anthony's cousin, and Carolyn Bessette Kennedy, Carole's closest friend. Three weeks later Anthony dies of cancer. The summer of the plane crash, the four friends were meant to be cherishing Anthony's last days. Instead, Carole and Anthony mourned John and Carolyn, even as Carole planned her husband's memorial.

    Story

    I read this book because I couldn't understand why a woman with a brain and an interesting life would want to participate in a Real Housewives series. (Still don't have that answer.) The book is surprisingly well written, and Carole does an excellent job of reading it. For some reason, the portrait of her friendship with Carolyn Bessette-Kennedy is fuller and richer than that of her too-brief relationship with her husband, whose illness and death she bravely chronicles.
