In Pieces Reviews
You're only as sick as the secrets that you keep.
Wow! I actually read this engaging, honest and illuminating memoir in one sitting. The brutal honesty and objectivity that Ms Field displays in openly discovering and relating her life-long battle with self-esteem and why she's the person that she is is refreshing and helped me to see some of the same traps I've also fallen into in my own life. I highly recommend this book to anyone who has come from a family that hides it's secrets or where abuse ...more
I like Sally Field. I really like her.
Unfortunately, I did not like her memoir. I found it slow moving and dull. Ultimately, it was the story of her relationship with her mother through the years. And it felt like it took years to read about it. Sorry Sal.
In Pieces by Sally Field is an intimate look behind the scenes of her life and career. I'm a huge fan and loved reading about her life. From an absent father, an alcoholic mother and an abusive stepfather through her adult relationships with the men in her life to her career and realizing her worth as an actor, woman and mother. I loved the writing and heard her voice in my head as I was reading. A must read!
I love her as an actress but there seems to be big chunks of her life here she could have focused more on. There was only a passing mention of Steel Magnolias, Mrs. Doubtfire and Forrest Gump.
Raw and gritty, this is an insider's look to a dysfunctional Hollywood family. Not what I was expecting, Sally Field draws back a curtain and vividly exposes her hard-scrabble childhood with an abusive step-father and an emotionally absent (perhaps drunk) mother. Through the carnage, she stumbles into her acting career in a haze of drugs and emotional eating, marries her childhood sweetheart and survives by enabling gross bad behavior from everyone she knows except perhaps her brother. (who seem ...more
Sally Field is a brilliant actress so naturally I was curious about her memoir. It was not quite what I expected. The trauma-filled childhood still lit by love is the foundation of the book. But it is her professional years that caught my attention. Her move from Gidget and the Flying Nun to Sybil: from as lightweight as imaginable to searingly dramatic.
Field details her work with the Actors Studio. She shares her deep commitment to acting as an art as well as a craft and her determination to bu ...more
Quite a different autobiography. Really enjoyed the read, for it is clear the lady can write.
Whilst many autobiographies are very externally driven - telling the reader about the acts and deeds of their life - this is far more introspective. Sally is trying to understand the "why" questions surrounding her actions, and thus this feels much more personal than many in this genre.
Sally's early life is covered in more detail than the latter years, and the title refers to her looking at her life in ...more
I have been a huge fan of Sally field for a number of reasons: Versatile as an actress, as a kind individual and the roles she played has sparked a great interest in me. My favorite movie is Ms Doubtfire,she plays the dutiful wife that is stuck in a marriage that is not going anywhere..Then she hires a 'nanny' to care of her life but there is more to the story that I don't want to spoil for the people who have not watched it. It is something about her as a person that inspires me, and reading th ...more
