Talking as Fast as I Can: From Gilmore Girls to Gilmore Girls (and Everything in Between) Reviews
Lauren Graham writes as she speaks (as if I really know). What I'm saying is, I can clearly hear her voice while I read her words on the page. Her personality is evident. Maybe it's the voice of Lorelei Gilmore I'm hearing, but hey since she created the character, then I think it's at least a resemblance of Lauren in real life. The book is full of self deprecating, “don't take me too seriously because I wouldn't do that myself” humor. Behind that perky witticism, I see a very intelligent person, ...more
**Before reading the book:
This is being released on my birthday! And 4 days after the revival premieres! This is already the best birthday ever :D
**Upon finishing the book:
This gets 5 stars. Yes I am being biased because I love Lauren Graham and Gilmore Girls (which is more than just a show to me, it's a religion, a way of life -- I know that sounds crazy but I've been too obsessed for too long, its unhealthy...just ignore me). But I genuinely enjoyed this. It was a fun, quick read, made even mo ...more
Awwwwww this was so sweet. There were some parts where I found myself skim reading or skipping altogether (the fashion chapter coz BORING) but I really, really enjoyed this and I love Lauren's voice and sense of humour!
I love Gilmore Girls and I love Lauren Graham! Some chapters from this book were a little boring and I just skimmed them but especially the chapters about filming Gilmore Girls and about how she became an actress were super interesting and so much fun to read :)
This was so fun to read! I'm a huge Gilmore Girls fan and have been for about 12 years now. From the 4 years spent watching reruns of Seasons 1-7 every morning on ABC Family from 10am-noon to the binge watching A Year in the Life on Netflix I couldn't get enough of the show, so this inside look told from one of my favorite characters was perfect. First off I'd like to point out how much this felt like Lorelai. Honestly Lauren Graham was born for this role, I couldn't imagine any other actress, a ...more
My one-sentence summary: Lauren Graham’s personality shines through a lot here, and that’s delightful, but she doesn’t really explore much of anything with any real depth, and that’s disappointing.
I came to Gilmore Girls late, even though I’m in the exact age bracket to have grown up with it. My parents didn’t have cable so I couldn’t watch the WB and by the time I got to college, where many of my friends loved the show, I found it a little off-putting. Part of that was because it wasn’t really ...more
Lauren Graham narrating the audiobook was every bit of the awesomeness that I'd hoped for and expected.
So Lauren Graham basically IS Lorelai Gilmore :)
It was so much fun to read her short diary-type entries of the experience of filming the revival and to hear other bits of Gilmore Girls history. I wasn't as into some of the other parts of the book, but her writing was consistently upbeat and hilarious! It really sounded like Lorelai was just telling you about her day in a casual yet super caffeinated conversation.
