Publisher's Summary

Award-winning actress Drew Barrymore shares funny, insightful, and profound stories from her past and present told from the place of happiness she's achieved today.

Wildflower is a portrait of Drew's life in stories as she looks back on the adventures, challenges, and incredible experiences of her earlier years. It includes tales of living on her own at 14 (and how laundry may have saved her life), getting stuck in a gas station overhang on a cross-country road trip, saying good-bye to her father in a way only he could have understood, and many more adventures and lessons that have led her to the successful, happy, and healthy place she is today. It is the first book Drew has written about her life since the age of 14.

    "Stop the Screaming!"

    Intriguing snippets from Drew's life. She has blossomed into a beautiful person inside and out. This audio has way too much screaming. It ruined the audio experience.

    "Hold the shrieking !"

    This probably would have been enjoyable without the many unexpected screams, which I found unsettling. My listening is usually at bedtime. Not a relaxing addition, although the story is well told.

    "I could live without all the screaming"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I would not, Drew is very fond of screaming and does it A L-O-T. It may well put you off finishing the book at all. Also the books jumps time periods making its a little scatterbrained and hard to follow.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Drew


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Constant, infuriating screams. I wish I had read this instead of suffering through the screaming.


    What else would you have wanted to know about Drew Barrymore’s life?

    No really


    Any additional comments?

    Someone needs to edit this and REMOVE the screaming. It is NOT funny, it is NOT charming and it adds NOTHING to the book.

    "Narration was excruciating . . ."

    I love Drew Barrymore, but this was awful. The screaming and ranting was unbearable. She should never narrate another book. Sorry Drew.

    "Endearing!!"

    I have always loved drew barrymore and I have always felt, without, knowing her or meeting her, that we were kindred spirits. This book was such an endearing insight to her life and inspiration. I Love that this wasn't just an autobiography but she really did give lessons that she learned throughout her hard life. After hearing this book it's inspired me to go ahead and pursue all the things that I wanted to in life. Time to take some risks !

    Story
    "Couldn't get past the shrieking"
    Would you try another book from Drew Barrymore and/or Drew Barrymore?

    Only if she didn't narrate the book herself.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Drew Barrymore’s performances?

    No.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I really wanted to love this book. The stories were pretty interesting, but I had to stop listening because of Drew's narration. I found myself wincing in the car at 6:00am...this is not how I want to start my day.


    Any additional comments?

    I will probably get the Kindle version of the book so I can finish the stories. But listening to the rest of it is out of the question.

    "Life Changing"

    OMW absolutely brilliant! Couldn't stop listening. Fell in love With Drew and so many moments I could relate too. Laughed hard and cried hard! Having Drew narrate made it even more special. So animated in her ways and the elaborate descriptions of each moment made me feel like I was right there experiencing it with her. Heartbroken when my book came to an end...
