Audible Editor Reviews

Editors Select, April 2014 - I’m not the type of person who typically reads celebrity biographies. To be honest, I’ve only read these types of books out of need on long flights. I willingly picked up Judy Greer’s I Don’t Know What You Know Me From: Confessions of a Co-Star because I happen to love the eclectic mix of television shows and movies in which she’s been. Her book is funny, interesting, and honest. She speaks of her childhood in Michigan, her college years in Chicago, and her time in L.A. The best part? It’s like listening to your best friend talk about her day. –Laura, Audible Editor

Publisher's Summary

Like Tina Fey, Chelsea Handler, and other (best-selling) co-stars, Judy Greer is taking pen to paper and in her honest, self-deprecating, and hilariously relatable way reminding us why she's not America's sweetheart but America's best friend.

You know Judy Greer, right? Wait, what was she in again? The Wedding Planner, 13 Going on 30, 27 Dresses, The Descendants. Yes, you totally recognize her. And, odds are, if you're like most women in America, you feel like she's already your friend. Thankfully, Greer has finally written a book of essays about all the moments, topics, observations, and confessions that you would hope to hear from your best friend. How a midnight shopping trip to CVS can cure all. What it's like to have stepchildren. And how she really feels about her mother. Yes, it's all in there. But Judy Greer isn't just a regular friend - she's a celebrity friend. Want to know which celebs she's peed next to? Or what the Oscars were actually like? Or which hot actor gave her father a Harley Davidson? Don't worry - that's included, too. Besides being laugh-out-loud funny, you'll love her because she makes us genuinely feel like she's one of us. Because even though she sometimes has a stylist and a make-up artist, she still wears (and hates!) Spanx. Because she starts her book like this: "This is who I am. This is what I think about things. This is stuff that happened to me, that could have just as easily have happened to you. I'm not that special, and we're probably not that different. I think I am really lucky to be where I am in life, but I've never really lost that feeling that I don't fit in, and if you have, will you please email me and tell me how you did it? I'm serious."

    "Yay!!! Another Audible Favorite!"

    This book was on par with my absolute, hands down favorite "BossyPants". Judy Greer's stories are touching, funny, interesting and well narrated. As another small town Michigan girl, her early essays on growing up outside Detroit during the "John Hughes" era made me feel like we were besties exchanging memories. Love this book!!!

    Story
    "Funniest book about Show Biz in A Long Time"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Bcause it's very funny.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The blind date with the man who would become her husband. Anyone who's been on a blind date can relate. She forgot what he looked like, after two hours of talking to him over dinner.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Getting to know her step children and her husband's ex.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Ashton Kutcher bought Judy's dad a serious Harley, just cause Ashton's a good guy.


    Any additional comments?

    I'd be surprised if she doesn't become a major comedy star,after this book. She's really funny and you can't help but wish her the best.

    Story
    "Love this actress but such a disappointment"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I wouldn't recommend this to anyone. The author is upbeat but it's one dull story after another. I loved other books in this group (Bossypants, Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?) but I didn't even finish this one.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    How to Be a Woman by Caitlin Moran


    Have you listened to any of Judy Greer’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I haven't listened to her other performances

    What did you love best about I Don't Know What You Know Me From?

    There is something endearing about Judy Greer that makes her almost instantly likable. There is nothing mind blowing about the book as far as content, except to say that it made me like her more. Listening to this book is like making a new friend: you get to hear all the past stories, thoughts, ideas, dreams, hopes, and gaffes. it's a one sided relationship at this point, but you know, she IS an actress (hee, hee). Very enjoyable listen.

    I love reading. For a long time, I snubbed audio books like so many others. How wrong and misguided I was.

    Story
    "Enjoyable essays from the life of an actress"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    She tends to complain more than necessary especially when you consider her occupation.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Yes. It may be more entertaining and less whiny as a movie

    Story
    "Needed More Stories!"
    What disappointed you about I Don't Know What You Know Me From?

    I think it was just too general - "I have a hard time with this, I really like that" … but lacking any specific details or stories to capture the listener's attention. (Aside from the motorcycle story, which was semi-interesting, but a little too gushy.) The entire chapter of reading emails about what a great friend she is was annoying. (Again, without specific stories or examples … just, "wow! you're really awesome!")


    Would you ever listen to anything by Judy Greer again?

    Probably not. I really enjoy Judy Greer as an actress, and because of the wide variety of characters she's played and people she's worked with, I was hoping to hear a collection of stories about her experiences. (Especially from Arrested Development! I would think that job alone would be full of interesting/funny tales!) Happily, she seems to have led a pretty charmed life - which is great - but makes for a bit of a tiresome read. Makes me really appreciate how difficult it is to be an engaging writer/storyteller. Not everyone can do it.

    Story
    "Funny lady, unfunny writing."
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I'm not sure who would enjoy this book. The stories were unmoving and rambling.


    What could Judy Greer have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    I bought this book because I thought that there would be better stories, insider scoop stuff. Instead I had to listen to her talk about how she hated La traffic for 10 minutes.


    Did Judy Greer do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    There were no other characters really.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    I was disappointed I spent $20 on this book.


    Any additional comments?

    Don't waste your money honey!

    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved her honest and openness about her life and what hollywood/television/movies/fame are like for her.


    Any additional comments?

    Judy is adorable. I've always liked her in all the movies and tv shows she's been on.. and theres been a lot! She's down to earth, funny, mellow, and it was fun to listen to her story.

    Story
    "???"

    I'm about halfway through and while there are some redeeming qualities such as mildly entertaining stories every few chapters, I keep expecting more.

    I tried hard to give this a chance but the words "insipid drivel" and "inane chatter" have popped into to mind. I'd like to be kinder but this a review so consider this my advice/warning. I've listened to nearly 50 audible books in the past 3 months and this is just plain boring. I keep asking myself what is the point of this so I'm quitting. On to the next....

    Bottom line: there's not nearly enough substance to make a book yet the author does not appear to know this. You know when you ask someone the question "so how was your day?" And they start of with...."welllll, I woke up at 5:25.. And then, and then, and then and then and then?????"

    It's pretty much just that the whole time.
