While I am sure this is a great book, I just cannot get into it. It jumps around from childhood to recent past and to be honest, i am not that interested in his childhood. I bought this book hoping to really get the 'goods' on hollywood. Maybe i should have bought the 'abridged' model?????
This book is abolutely brilliant. I loved all three and am looking forward to the 4th. I was glued to each page and couldnt get enouhg, i was very happy to find out there were sequals. No, this isnt the next great american novel, and i am glad! its nice to read a fun book every now and again. Becky is my hero!!!!!
I was happily surprised by this book. I had anticipated a fact filled, boring account of her experience, and yes, i'll admit, i bought it because she was narrating it! But i am glad to say, it was full of emotion, it was entertaining, it was tearjerking, a lot of the time funny, and yes, it had some good information as well about her cancer experience. I was very happy with it, and i listened to it all the way through without skipping around or veering off towards another book....... I wish more authors narrated their own books, it really makes a difference. I felt like i was sharing her experience with her.
Loved it. Made me think a lot about all the waste that goes on in America, among other things. Very honest and downright nitty gritty! Made me open my eyes, not hide under the covers. I enjoyed his wit and I enjoyed the fact the author did the narrating. I think Bill Mahr has a lot to say, and I hope to hear more.
I thought i would try this as a change from my usual choice. Boy was I disappointed! i was so bored that i nearly fell asleep. I thought this was going to be an involved show but instead, its just susie bright discussing issues and a main topic and she sounds totally out of the loop. I was embarrassed at how unpolished it sounded. Its totally unrehearsed and half the time she sounded like she didnt know what she was talking about. If you have insomnia, this might be your cure!
