    "What an Amazing Life!"
    Where does I, Rhoda rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    One of the most interesting and comprehensive memoirs that I've come across in my many readings.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Quite a behind-the-scenes look at the Rhoda era and the many successes beyond her initial hit show.


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

    Wonderful, warm and genuine performance.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    My Friend, Rhoda


    Any additional comments?

    The latest medical news surrounding Valarie Harper broke just as I was finishing this audiobook. As I listened, enjoying every moment, I was amazed by the depth of her career and her love and affection for many friends and family. Her show "Rhoda" was a TV sensation, but she has done so much more since then, including a life filled with passion and care for those less fortunate. The depth of her sharing goes way beyond most bios. Her anecdotes made me laugh and her honesty and emotional stories renewed my love for the woman we knew as Rhoda. Bless you Valarie!

    "Enjoyable"

    This audio book was very enjoyable. I had no idea that Miss Harper was in the chorus of many Broadway shows. The behind the scenes at the Mary Tyler Moore Show from audition to end was fascinating too. I recommend this book.

    "Just wonderful"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I learned about Valerie and her famous Rhoda from Kathy Griffin's book (which is so good!). I had never seen Mary Tyler's show or Rhoda. I loved Valerie's story. It's very interesting and inspiring. Unlike Kathy's book, this book is not packed with jokes, it's just interesting to hear about someone trying so hard to get what they wanted. Her perseverance and her extremely positive attitude towards everything in her life are very admirable. It did make me regret not knowing abut her when she performed in so many wonderful plays. I would have loved to watch her in "Looped" or "The Tale of the Allergist's wife"


    What was one of the most memorable moments of I, Rhoda?

    When she gets the part for Rhoda


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Too many to mention


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    Just get it

    This was a great book to listen to. Valerie was so engaging and her story was entertaining from start to finish. Learned so much about such an iconic person. This is an audio book that I look forward to listening to again.

    Fun and easy to listen to, the book is interesting and well written. The author narrates it well. I enjoyed listening to it. I highly recommend it. Very poignant story of how she adopted her daughter, among other tales of her career. Loved it!
