Talking as Fast as I Can: From Gilmore Girls to Gilmore Girls (and Everything in Between) Reviews
I couldn't wait to get this audio!! *sniff, sniff, wail*
Recently I made what may have been a questionable parenting decision and starting watching Gilmore Girls on Netflix with my daughter. I was surprised to find it is not only a fabulous (and in our case, somewhat addictive) show with quirky characters and smart dialogue, but it opens many doors for age-appropriate conversations with my daughter about school, relationships of all kinds, community, etc. I love Lauren Graham in both Gilmore Girl ...more
This was so good. It kept me laughing out loud and I wanted hear more of her stories. I like her voice as a writer. She had a bit in there about Old Lady Jackson that was funny and she needs to turn this into a whole book. Wonderful character.
She takes us behind the scenes of Gilmore Girls and Parenthood to share her experiences. We also have stories of how she made it in the business of Show. This made me miss seeing her on TV weekly. I hope they bring the show back again.
I felt like I was sit ...more
Having been a fan of the Gilmore Girls TV series, this book was such a treat for me. It could have tooootally been an account of the life and times of Lorelai Gilmore. Well OK, a slightly AU-type of account.
It has tonnes of humorous and cringe-worthy situations in it. There's plenty of thoughtful advice to be found here as well, generally in the person of one Old Lady Jackson. And then there is the hilarious amount of procrastination, when it comes to writing a book. Now that is relatable... up ...more
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.
Lauren Graham is another one of my girl crushes. I am a fan of the show "Gilmore Girls," and was happy to hear she had published a journal she wrote while filming the revival episodes for Netflix.
This collection of essays is amusing and heartfelt, just as I expect Lauren is in real life. My favorite pieces were her stories about the filming of "Gilmore Girls," and also what she's learned about writing (tip: allow yourself one hour a day without interruption to focus on writing — no internet, no ...more
This was okay.
There were a lot of filler stories and she didn't start talking about Gilmore Girls until chapter 15.
I listened to the audiobook and Lauren sang way too much. Kinda irritated me.
There were a few cool behind the scenes info about her tv shows but nothing you can't find from interviews.
This was really good! Lauren Graham writes about her life on a funny (at times maybe a bit too funny) note and I loved it. Being a fan of Gilmore Girls, it was amazing to get a backstage view on what it was like doing that show, but it was equally as enthralling to read about Lauren’s childhood, young adulthood and about her journey to become an actress.
The last bonus chapter in this edition I read added something special, and the very last page almost teared me up - Lauren wraps e ...more
I'm a pretty solid fan of Gilmore Girls, but have previously felt disappointed in realizing that neither Lauren Graham nor Alexis Bledel are the characters they play in that show. Not quite as intelligent, and definitely not as well-read. I know, Gilmore Girls is a rapid-talking idealized landscape, but one I think I prefer to escape to without the grounding in reality.
So I was uncertain as to whether I would want to listen to this memoir, but having just watched the four "Year in the Life" epis ...more
