    “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.

    Story

    I love Diane Keaton and have seen every movie she has ever been in. She plays cute, gutsy, quirky women. I love her! But this is a tale of life that would be interesting only to immediately family members in my opinion. I listen to books while doing pottery and this one had my face falling into the pots I was pulling. I absolutely couldn't stay awake. This is the kind of personal history that everyone should write . . . just not necessarily publish.

    The story begins in 1962. On a rocky patch of the sun-drenched Italian coastline, a young innkeeper, chest-deep in daydreams, looks out over the incandescent waters of the Ligurian Sea and spies an apparition: a tall, thin woman, a vision in white, approaching him on a boat. She is an actress, he soon learns, an American starlet, and she is dying. And the story begins again today, half a world away, when an elderly Italian man shows up on a movie studio's back lot - searching for the mysterious woman he last saw at his hotel decades earlier.

    Story

    I tried four times and, even though I wasn't particularly sleepy, I zoned out. The story and the presentation just didn't catch me at all, though I'm not an action junky. Maybe I should just keep it as a sleep aid. I don't recommend it.
