I hadn't known too much about Jane Fonda before reading this book. I had seen her on Oprah and thought that her story might be interesting since all I knew about her was that there had been controversy during the Vietnam war and of course the workout tapes. It is always amazing when reading biographies at the details people remember - I'm lucky if I can remember what happened yesterday! While she did lead a privileged life, it was not perfect and I enjoyed being a voyeur as she retold her history which has led her to where she is today in her life - truly living her life. Motivates me to do my own inward and reflective work on my journey so far.
I was hesitant to listen to this book - or at least to commit to all the hours. It took me a few chapters in to get really interested. I felt it had a slow start. But once things kicked in, I didn't want to stop listening! I would sit outside my office just to listen a little bit longer...same thing home in my driveway. Just when you thought you had all the characters figured out, Part 2 rolled around, I was completely unprepared! I have always been able to figure out plots within the first chapter or two - this book was the first exception in a long time. Absolutely great read/listen. I highly recommend!
Once I got past the narrator, I thought the story was ok. I'm in traffic for usually an hour to and from work, and this was a good distraction....It's fiction and takes you away from the ordinary drivel. Most of the time I found myself with a grin on my face. I'm in book 3 now and will miss the story of Christen and Ana when I'm finished.
