Definitely the narration/performance by Ross Matthews. I listened to the entire book on a flight yesterday and I'm sure my fellow passengers were wondering what I was listening to - such a fun time!
Hearing about his great childhood. What a strong foundation for him
Loved his stories about meeting Madonna and other celebs. He also performed the book in his great signature voice and rapid-fire speaking style - really funny and full of pep
Loved it and look forward to more books/stories by Ross.
It would have been nice if Gwyneth and Chelsea would have read their parts themselves, but Ross did a fine job with their portions.
No, this is her life and she recounts it as she saw fit. At times, it sounded like she was a little "sick of it all," (kind of sighing at the beginning of each chapter), but hey, that's how life is and we all feel that way at times. There are a lot of other reviews that focus on the more "racy" parts of her life, but I was not put off my it at all. I appreciated her candor, honesty, and willingness to share that part of herself.
I really liked learning about her childhood and early years and would have liked to hear more about this period
Hard to say - liked the whole thing
No, this is good as is.
That Tori wrote and read it herself. Boy, you have to admit that she has one crazy life, but it's admirable that she shares it so openly with all of us.
Getting more background how how/why things have happened to her, her relationships, her professional life, etc
Yes, we think we know all about her (and we know a lot since her life is so public), but this book puts it all into perspective
When she talks about her parents. I also liked how she really, REALLY takes a good hard look at herself and decides how to change (what's important, etc)
Good book overall. It took a little while for me to really get into it, but I enjoyed her story and narration. I had no idea about all the medical issues she has encountered - yikes! There are a few really funny parts that literally cracked me up (as I listened on a flight), which made it fun too.
No, once was enough (and I really liked it), but got all I needed after 1 listen.
I enjoyed how they alternated chapters and commentary - very well done
No and their narratives MADE the book - it was great and James' accent cracked me up
Hearing their perspectives on 9/11 and Katrina
Really fast listen and fun!
That Tracey wrote and narrated it
That it wasn't a gossip-fest or tell-all, but a genuine description of what it was like for her to become a musician. If you like books like this, a GREAT one is Ann & Nancy Wilson's book - give it a try!
Yes, of course I knew her work, but had not seen any interviews, etc. I didn't really understand the title of the book though
I wished Tracey would have described her relationship with Ben in more detail (I am a romantic and think it's great they are still together after all these years!). I also liked how there were a few snips of music in the book
My favorite books are autobiographies read by the author and this does not disappoint. Loved Corey's performance, emotions, and accents throughout the book
All were great (for different reasons) - his parents, Corey Haim, industry folks like Donner and Spielberg, and of course - Michael Jackson (for whom Feldman has great respect)
I am amazed with his tenacity throughout the difficult times in his life and his relentless pursuit of a positive attitude
I didn't know too much about Feldman and was impressed that he shared his story and experiences. Great audio performance - heartfelt and genuine. Give it a try, it does not disappoint!
Stefanie's diction and performance of the book are excellent
I would have liked a more conventional (timeline-wise) recounting of her life experience. The book jumped around a lot (both in dates and subjects). However, listening to her speak made it all worthwhile
Anything with an accent
Nope, fine as is
William Hope's narration is fantastic - so much fun to listen to and I love how he speaks for Ava - very campy (in the best, most flattering way) - cracks me up!
Wow, tough to say, since it is written from the writer's perspective (which is unusual).
No, this is my first exposure to William Hope and he is great. I will definitely seek other works by him
I am only halfway through the book, so I will have to wait and see
Having lots of fun listening to this. The audio quality is excellent too - give it a try!
Very good. Penny's performance was excellent and fun to listen to.
Tough to compare. I was amazed with the long lasting (and wide-ranging) friendships she has cultivated and maintained through the years. The title of the book is not really reflective of the content.
She made it sound as if she was talking directly to you (it wasn't "performed" at all).
No extreme reactions - just an overall good feeling that I got from learning more about her as a something more than just Laverne & Shirley
Overall, a fun experience and I am glad I listened to this one. Give it a shot!!
Yes, I am actually on my second listen and really enjoy it. Ann and Nancy do a fantastic job recounting their lives and it's great to hear in in their own voices.
Love them both. I especially liked how they explained how the Beatles inspired them. They sure sounded like interesting, focused kids and I admire their commitment to the music, their family, and themselves.
I enjoyed so much, it's hard to decide. That's part of the reason I am listening to it all over again - it's THAT good!
Yes, definitely. It might have also been nice if the intro and conclusion music would have been a Heart tune instead of something else
My only complaint is that i HATED how a narrator introduced each voice with each chapter. One can quickly/easily distinguish between Ann & Nancy's voices, so this "intrusion" is unnecessary and kind of disruptive.
