I wasn't a big fan of Doris Roberts when I began this book, but I must say that it really held my attention. It's not written in the traditional way of a memoir, but rather she hops around different events in her life. She's funny and entertaining. An easy, light, siting on the beach read.
This is a really good book. It does mention quite a few things about "Everybody Loves Raymond" but the focus is on Doris Roberts's life and she's lived a colorful one! Anyone who likes Doris Roberts will like this book!
About the life and career of Doris Roberts.Doris is warm,she's real and she's funny.Every page of her book sparkles with her personality,her opinions,and her perspective on everything from ambition to auditions to aging.
I was interested in this book because I am a big fan of William Goyen's writing...he was her husband and died a few years ago. Her description of their relationship was touching (they fought a lot but always forgave each other..she tells funny stories). However, the rest of the book wasn't as compelling. I'm not a "Raymond" fan...maybe that's why. Some of the recipes look good...give it a shot!
I really like Doris Roberts so I got this one day after seeing it. Then I started worrying if I'd like the book. Just because I love her on t.v. doesn't mean I'll love her book.
The rating was harder than usual for me because it's not like this is the usual four star book for me. But it's interesting, my attention was held throughout and Roberts' humor is outstanding. I was amazed at her openness and honesty.
If you like to cook and try new recipes you'll probably love the ones included here. I don't cook - at all - so those meant nothing to me besides how they linked with certain anecdotes.
I'm also not into plays and theater like Roberts is but even those aspects, and there are a lot, really kept me reading.
It's worth a read if you really like her and I'm glad I found it. I'm thinking about reading [author:Patricia Heaton|133263]'s [book:Motherhood and Hollywood|9408508] soon now.
