Listened to the audiobook read by Selma Blair. Wow she did such a good job.
Couldn‘t put it down after I started. Beautiful, moving and unexpected. Just wow.
Listened to the audiobook read by her, she did an amazing job.
Overall interesting and I‘ve always loved her but it seemed to get pretty slow at times.
A good amount of stories were a little longer than needed maybe.
If anyone‘s a fan then it‘s a definite listen, it‘s just not as good as other memoirs I‘ve heard the last year.
Amazing book and movie. Recommend both.
Loved the movie but never read the book until now. Just blown away. The entire book was like one epic heart breaking poem. Definitely will read again.
I will absolutely buy every single thing she ever releases! It gave me chills, made me cry and helped give me courage in a really bad time. She‘s amazing and it‘s my favorite birthday gift this year!!!
Enlightening and well written. It‘s interesting to hear from someone who grew up a bit like I did and came out the other side. Funny and moving.
At first it seemed boring and too many characters but as soon as it jumped off it stayed good. My only issue was two things: 1. Constantly calling one character fat the entire book! She was a whole 30 lbs overweight 🙄. 2. Having a horrible brat of a teenager run her mouth with no repercussions the whole time 🤬. I recommend skimming the Frances parts. Still it was a lot of fun like desperate housewives kinda, without the murder and nonsense.
Quick and fun read. I was always a fan of hers but reading about her rescue doggie and how much love and care she gave this big sweet guy made me cry like a baby.
Beautiful book! Amazing pictures, old magazine and newspaper clips and of course epic love stories. Marilyn Monroe & Arthur Miller, Elizabeth Taylor & Richard Burton and Clark Gable & Carol Lombard are just a couple of my favorites. Colorful, captivating and re-readable.
Completely insane plot. I couldn‘t stop till I found out what happened that night. Heart breaking and not expected at all! Great mystery book.
Finished this awesome book while sharing my bed with two cats and three dogs (these two just happen to always be closest). Great book! Her writing really blew me away And had me and my husband talking. She has so many interesting points of view. I love her writing. I highlighted like 30 parts. Quick and easy read.
Completely engrossed by every story but the last one I hated. The stories keep running through my head, they are haunting. It‘s like esops fables mixed with Grimm fairy tales. I love her writing so much, she is now one of my favorite authors of all time and I will read everything she writes.
Read this so quickly I was disappointed I didn‘t make it last longer. Her writing blew me away.
Love her and loved this book. I love to hear people who fought for what they have, she earned it that‘s for sure.
Her narration was like just talking to her. It surprised me when she broke down and cried over her fathers death, having lost my father younger it hit me hard. Definitely a quick and fun read/listen.
I listened to this one quick. I loved hearing it in the authors voice. She is extremely witty and smart. I loved every second and I laughed often. I share pretty much all her beliefs so of course that helps. If you lean more liberal this is the book for you.
Didn‘t love it as much as hot & heavy or things no one tells fat girls. This was more about her past than about her quitting dieting or body issues. I didn‘t care for her narration, often it was like listening to a teenager. It was at times shallow and immature. It didn‘t really get much deeper than the surface of the subject. Still inspiring overall.
Nerding out hard core! It was really cool hearing the story from most of the actors themselves. Funny, not too long or shot and an easy listen.
What an amazing writer. I was completely blown away. I‘ve never read anything like this. Her writing is her own style. I loved every chapter except the last, I thought it was boring and went on too long. Also hard to relate to being with someone when they have a significant other. I felt no sympathy or connection to that part of the book.
This book was way better. Still weird and shocking but at least in this one people are sex slaves by choice and want that life. The first three made me uneasy how they were forced into it and then grew to love it like Stockholm syndrome! Really good end though I have to say.
Loving this book! So intelligently written. Can‘t stop reading.
Really interesting. Definitely different and pretty eye opening. Great narration. I know I give way too many f‘s about a lot of things. Hopefully I can take something form this book and give a little less.
I kind of hate read this lol. I was completely shocked by the outright rape and torture being completely excepted and even sought after. That people wanted to be “pleasure slaves” is insane. I kept reading cause I had to see what happened and if any of it would make sense. I‘ve never ever read anything like it that‘s for sure. I must say it‘s really fun to read with your significant other ☺️.
