A well-written memoir can take the reader on an incredible and personal journey. When it is transformed into an audiobook, the sound of a voice makes for an even more intimate connection between the listener and the story, especially if it is the distinctive voice of Anne Murray reading the words of her memoir, All of Me.
In this revealing audiobook, Murray narrates her astonishing 40-year career in show business. An unflinching self-portrait of Canada’s iconic female recording artist, All of Me documents her life from humble origins in the tragedy-plagued coal-mining town of Springhill, Nova Scotia, to her arrival on the world stage.
Murray recounts the battles with her record company over singles and albums; the struggle with drug- and alcohol-ridden band members; the terrible guilt and loneliness of being away from her two young children; her divorce from the man who helped launch her career, Bill Langstroth; and the deaths of two of her closest confidantes.
"Reading my book aloud proved to be much more of a challenge than I had anticipated," remarks Murray. "I found that after reading for three hours, I became bleary-eyed and tongue-tied! However, I was determined to do the full book, not just an edited version of it. So, eight days, 24 hours of reading…[and] it was done!" This a must-listen to package that will be cherished for years.

If I am not reading I am listening to a story sometimes both.
I did not read the print version but loved listening to Anne read her own book.
I am the same age as Anne so I could really relate to all the history of her life time.
Hey she sounds like her songs so if you are a fan what could be better plus there are a few bits of them throughout the book.
I would not make a movie of this book since she is alive and well and there is no actress that can be her....not even her daughter who is her own person.
I grew up listening to Anne Murray and others of her ilk. I found this book a great "read", but Anne drops names at every opportunity. In addition, she keeps speaking of her struggle with "low self esteem", but many of the passages come across as bragging. Anne seems somewhat out of touch with the fact that she has ALWAYS been an adult contemporary/country artist. She often refers to her forays into rock music. This is akin to David Cassidy referring to his years playing in punk bands. She is very candid and portrays her love of her family very well. This isn't a book with a bunch of hateful mud-slinging that you often find in musician bios. All in all the book gives great insight into the very private life of one of Canada's best exports. Murray fans(AKA Snowbirds) need to hold their flames and take this post as one person's OPINION.
"Anne Murray's book All of Me."
This book was fantastic and Anne read it brilliantly. Well worth the read. I couldn't put it down. Anne documents her life here with true proffessionalism and frank observation and has proved herself very articulate.
