    "In Heaven while reading this audiobook"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes if the person likes a good memoir and loved Julia Sugarbaker on Designing Women. I LOVE Dixie Carter and I am sorry she is gone but this is a must read for any fan of hers. I just sorry it wasn't an unabridged version.


    What other book might you compare Trying to Get to Heaven to and why?

    Delta Style: Eve wasn't a size 6 and neither am I by: Delta Burke,
    If I Knew Then What I Knew Now . . .So What? By: Estelle Getty,
    Jeannie Out of the Bottle By: Barbara Eden,
    I, Rhoda By: Valerie Harper


    What about Dixie Carter’s performance did you like?

    I LOVED the way she narrated the story it felt more like she was TELLING you the story then reading from a book. Also it felt like Dixie was talking to an old friend more that talking to a book listener.


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

    Yes I wasn't able to but I wanted to.


    Any additional comments?

    I am rereading this audio book again and probably will reread it again and again.

    "Where is Julia?"
    Any additional comments?

    Was expecting the sharped tongue feminist wit of Julia Sugarbaker for some reason? Instead just got a lot of self indulgent right wing rhetoric. Although it was sad to listen to her joking about taking hormones/estrogen,progestrin and maybe not being here 10 yr.s from now. Ironically Dixie Carter passed from a form of uterine cancer.
    Loved her character on Designing Women. Did not enjoy listening to her opinions on audio.
