    Story
    (57)

    Roseanne Barr is a force of nature. Whether taking the sitcom world by storm, challenging accepted social norms, or battling the wild pigs inhabiting her nut farm in Hawaii, she is not to be trifled with. In this audiobook, Roseanne unleashes her razor-sharp observations on hypocrisy, hubris, and self-perpetuating institutions of questionable value - as well as menopause, pharmaceuticals, and her grandkids. And she's as controversial, original, and funny as ever.

    Amethyst says: "If "My Lives" left you wanting more......"
    "An Insightful Look into Roseanne's Life"

    Story
    Would you try another book from Roseanne Barr and/or Roseanne Barr?

    I would give another one of her books a try in the future. She's very interesting.


    What did you like best about this story?

    At the beginning of the book, Roseanne speaks of her childhood. It is a really good listen, because she rarely delves into that subject on television or otherwise. Also, the forward, which is read by her first husband, (Bill?) Pentland really gets into her life right before she got famous.


    What about Roseanne Barr’s performance did you like?

    Everyone associates Roseanne with that loud, screeching voice. However, she's very toned down here and easy to listen to.


    Do you think Roseannearchy needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    I would listen to another book, but do I think she needs to? No. I think she's said what she needs to say.

    Chronicling his embodiment of the American Dream, Total Recall covers Schwarzenegger's high-stakes journey to the United States, from creating the international bodybuilding industry out of the sands of Venice Beach, to breathing life into cinema's most iconic characters, and becoming one of the leading political figures of our time. Proud of his accomplishments and honest about his regrets, Schwarzenegger spares nothing in sharing his amazing story.

    Russell says: "Totally Worth It"
    "Boring and hard to understand"

  • The Help

    • UNABRIDGED (18 hrs and 19 mins)

    Why we think it’s a great listen: The most celebrated performance in all of Audible’s history, The Help has nearly 2,000 5-star reviews from your fellow listeners. We hear the print book’s not bad, either. In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women - mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends - view one another.

    Jan says: "What a great surprise!"
    "Simply magnificent"
    Overall

    If you purchase only one audio book, let it be this one. The characters ate brought to life in such a way that you can smell the fried chicken, see the steam coming up from the hot blacktop streets, and feel the hopeless fear in the voices.
