I bought this book to find out more about my crazy coworkers, but learned so much about my family instead! This book isn't so much about hard-core mental illness, but about the little personality traits that you find in most people. Extremely interesting listen. I listened to it several times and jotted down notes.
Ali's humor has always intrigued me. She is very funny and revealing in this book. It was like hanging with a funny friend for a few hours.
Definitely, it was hard to put down.
I'd like to hear more from her, not so much about her life, but just her funny observations.
This book has all the elements of a good mystery. It's shocking in places. Would have liked to have learned a little more history of what was going on in the country at that time.
I watched Carol Burnett's show growing up and am still prone to mimic her drawned out "Dewayne" or one of her Mama's characters. I loved her first autobiography; it's one of my keepers. This book was good, but lacked some of the emotional depth of the last book, which was what was so endearing about it. Enjoyable listen nonetheless.
Hearing Carol Burnett speak is worth the listen alone.
The history of Hawaii is interesting and I enjoyed the reader's pronunciation of Hawaiian words, but the author makes anything bad that could happen to this girl happen. The unabridged version (17 hours!!) just drags out the depressing story even longer. I listened to it through the end, but my fellow Metro riders probably wondered why I had tears in my eyes most mornings.
I thought she did a good job and I enjoyed her Hawaiian accent.
I have always wanted to go to Moloka'i because it is still relatively untouched (primarily because it was a leper colony) and that's still a goal.
