Melissa C. (creamdog) reviewed Lucille: The Life of Lucille Ball on + 9 more book reviews
Starting from the beginning, this gave a very descriptive look into Lucille Ball's life. It discusses her rise to stardom and how she was a regular in movies, but did not become a household name until the I Love Lucy show debuted. Her life with Desi was spoke of - their romance, their torrid fights, how she dealt with her husband's infidelities, drinking and gambling. In the end, there was no denying that they loved each other til the end. While it examined the ups and downs of her life, it was done in a tasteful manner, which any Lucy fan would appreciate! I learned a lot and enjoyed a concise, easy read about the world's favorite red head.
