The best part of Alice I Have Been was the performance. Samantha Eggar added depth where there wasn't much to begin with. Her performance was probably the only reason I finished this book.
I had wanted to listen to Melanie Benjamin's other book, but I'm hesitant now. She took such a good idea with Alice I Have Been and really flailed with it. I don't think I'll spend any money on another of her books.
Alice I Have Been reads like a Wikipedia entry told in the first person. There is little to no depth here. A follow up book would probably be more of the same. I'd say to skip it.
I was very disappointing by this book. I had been looking forward to it for a long time and was sorely let down.
