liked most -- the refreshing perspective of one that has had a rough life, but doesn't wallow in "poor me";it was worth price.
liked least -- almost fell over dead when the recording started, with the "audible kids"
screeching out - startling everyone in the room! didn't realize it was intended for kids.
frankly, i don't remember the ending - now that's sad.
it was ok, take it or leave it.
yep, and the price was good too.
I was glad the author narrated the book.
I was surprised by her feisty personality -and
teenage antics. In the age of reality TV and "too much info" , I gained a new respect for her by listening to her tell her story without commercials.
I appreciated hearing the author narrate her own book. it is to her credit that she was able to transcend the challenges her personal life threw her way-and come out on the other side, insightful and whole.
what a generous gift the author gives the reader--this is a remarkable read that I will not forget.
I don't know why I chose this book, I guess I expected some salacious tales from one of the brat pack. I was really humbled to learn my critical assumptions about the author were unfair. Hearing his story told, in his own words and own voice helped me appreciate him as a person. I really enjoyed this book.
I am so glad that Gilbert chose to narrate the audio version of this crazy book. it was fabulously entertaining, and heartwarming.
as a card carrying fan of wwhl, i awaited the release of this book. i was so disappointed to find the book filled with things you already knew if you watched his show, and that the surprises were empty, because he revealed them when interviewed about his big anniversary. It was boring after awhile-and I never thought I would say that about Andy cohen!
so happy I had the chance to listen to this while Joan was still with us-it helped me appreciate the dynamic talent & human being she was. I like listen to it again, time to time as her stories never grow old. she was one of a kind-a first class diva!
a must read for anyone who has been party to a diabolical divorce-an opportunity to look thru a mirror and see someone else's eyes, reflecting ones own "stuff". wow.
the intro and closing - "we hope you've enjoyed, ....."
the first time he told it like it was -- uttering the unspeakable, but much thought phrase....
it went on too long -- it was tiresome, and almost dumb in the end. would've carried a heavier punch by losing a few stanzas. clever though!
got to be a bit predictable, and far fetched after awhile, so i would get to the point sooner, or else add some dimension to the characters
nah - too far out of the realm of the real world we live in
it was ok
it doesn't surprise me that this would be a hollywood consideration - but i wouldn't go farther than the lifetime movie network. the fact that this question is posed, actually reinforces for me, the negative reaction i had to the story - it cheapens the delight that was dangled here and there in the book, when it stuck to clever, and away from cutesy. this seems the type of movie for a washed up sitcom type to relaunch their career -- someone left behind in the 70's or 80's - or one of those real housewives of beverly hills. ugh.
