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.
Absolutely. I did't know much about the band of Paul and was very impressed with his ability to tell his story candidly and in a fun, interesting way
My favorite books are those written and read by the authors and this one did not disappoint. Others that are good include Ann & Nancy Wilson (of Heart) and Rosie Perez
I liked understanding about his childhood and the challenges he faced
Very well done book and I am quite impressed with Paul Stanley. He has learned a lot about himself (both positives and negatives) and taken steps to improve himself and focus on the people/things that are important. He has so many varied interests and is MUCH deeper that what you might think is on the surface.
Fun and interesting
Tough to say, in that is autobiographical, but not a linear memoir (it's a collection of stories and experiences that are related, but don't flow in order). Once you get the hang of it though, it's very good. IUt's not all fun and games though - there are tough subjects discussed (which are handled honestly and very well).
No, this is the first one and I would definitely listen to more
His conversation with one of high school teachers (during a tough time in Sam's life). What an inspiration - the situation could have gone so many (negative) ways
Give this one a try - it's an unusual arrangement, but made me think and reflect on things.
Super sad, but a truthful account of Rosie's story, as written and told by her
Her wonderful, emotional performance throughout the book
The feeling and emotion in her voice, the great accent, her impression of how Lydia, Thea, and her Dad spoke - just great I especially liked how she imitated her Aunt's cackling laugh
I would get rid of the book title. It sounds kind of trivial compared to all the harrowing experiences she had
Wow, what a great book and stunning performance by Rosie. If you like autobiographies as much as I do (especially those read by the author), definitely buy this one!
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!
