Description

From Lauren Graham, the beloved star of Gilmore Girls and Parenthood, comes a witty, charming, and hilariously relatable debut novel about a struggling young actress trying to get ahead - and keep it together - in New York City. 

It’s January 1995, and Franny Banks has just six months left of the three-year deadline she set for herself when she came to New York, dreaming of Broadway and doing "important" work. But all she has to show for her efforts so far is a part in an ad for ugly Christmas sweaters, and a gig waiting tables at a comedy club. Her roommates - her best friend, Jane; and Dan, an aspiring sci-fi writer - are supportive, yet Franny knows a two-person fan club doesn’t exactly count as success. Everyone tells her she needs a backup plan, and though she can almost picture moving back home and settling down with her perfectly nice ex-boyfriend, she’s not ready to give up on her goal of having a career like her idols, Diane Keaton and Meryl Streep. Not just yet. 

But while she dreams of filling their shoes, in the meantime, she’d happily settle for a speaking part in almost anything - and finding a hair product combination that works. 

Everything is riding on the upcoming showcase for her acting class, where she’ll finally have a chance to perform for people who could actually hire her. And she can’t let herself be distracted by James Franklin, a notorious flirt and the most successful actor in her class, even though he’s suddenly started paying attention. Meanwhile, her bank account is rapidly dwindling, her father wants her to come home, and her agent doesn’t return her calls. But for some reason, she keeps believing that she just might get what she came for. 

Someday, Someday, Maybe is a story about hopes and dreams, being young in a city, and wanting something deeply, madly, desperately. It’s about finding love, finding yourself, and perhaps most difficult of all in New York City, finding an acting job. 

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

A Fun read

Any additional comments?

I was doing one of my random selection of books to read when I bought this. I had no idea what to expect frankly, but this turned out to be quite a fun and light read. The plot and the story itself isn't that deep, but there are sever quite hilarious scenes. However, there w3re some times when I wasn't quite sure where one person finished speaking and the next began, though I think it's more due to the format of the book than the narrater. The narrator suits this read. She's funny and could capture the way the MC speaks and I thought her sound affects all adds to the listening experience.

Should you read this? Well, if you are looking for a book to have a laugh and are purely wanting for some entertainment, then yes. It's a fun book to relax with, but lack any hardcore plot twists and developments like in the authors I usually like reading.

More Please!

A long time fan of Lauren Graham, I was a little nervous that her writing wouldn't live up to my hopes... but the fear was unwarranted. Although there are some portions of the ending that were pretty easy to see coming, the road to them was very entertaining.

I feel sorry of folks reading this book in print - Lauren's voice is the only voice that should read these words. She is a serious actress who you know doesn't take herself too seriously.

I hope for more books, either continuing the story of Fannie, or introducing us to new characters. Be prepared while listening with your ear buds firmly in place, if you're in public you may embarrass yourself by laughing out loud.

Love the performance!

What did you love best about Someday, Someday, Maybe?

I love Lauren Graham's reading of her book. I'm not sure I would like this as much to read myself, but I love listening to it. She is an excellent performer and I am thoroughly enjoying the book--I only have a tiny bit left and I just downloaded it yesterday. Definitely recommend it!

Who was your favorite character and why?

Franny is my favorite character because you see her struggle, you see her insecurities, yet you see her strength too. I love that she can laugh at herself, because who of us doesn't do that, or at least need to do that? She's someone I would love to be friends with.

Missing Lorelei

Certainly not the greatest of literature, but what can I say, I love Lauren Graham. It was so nice to hear the Lorelei voice of the Gilmore Girls come through as opposed to her character on Parenthood. This was a sweet, entertaining story about a young actress trying to get that big break. I would love to know how much of it was autobiographical and how much was made up. I will miss Graham's voice on my IPhone now that the story is over!

Who doesn't love Lauren Graham?

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Is it a perfect work of literary art? No, but nothing ever is, and it's hard not to be charmed by the author and her engaging style. It kept me entertained during my long LA commute, and I found myself listening to it outside of the car, because I couldn't wait to hear the rest of the story. My only complaint is that it went by too fast and left me wanting more. (Lauren, I hope you're writing a sequel - we need to see what comes next for Franny!)

Didn't disappoint

What did you like best about this story?

I enjoyed the fact that the story takes place in the 1990s - there are so many quirky problems that having a smartphone clears up and I think it would have been a shame if the 'easy fix' of technology was present in this story.

What does Lauren Graham bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I don't think I would have caught everything I caught without Graham's narration. This is her story and she knows better than anyone what to emphasize.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Franny's interactions with her father were sweet, funny and moving.

Any additional comments?

I hope she continues with Franny's story. There's definitely more to be said.

How can you not love a book by Lauren Graham?

Loved this book.
My daughter and I are die hard Lauren Graham fans. We love her in every tv show, movie, or guest appearances. When I saw that she both wrote and read this book, I had to give it a try. It's a great story and the performance was awesome. I hated to see the book end.

So good!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would recommend this book and already have given it away as a gift. I plan to give it out more! It's heartwarming, smart & funny all at once.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I laughed AND teared up at various parts of the book. Graham does an awesome voice-over, and has written lovable characters, realistic situations and fun, engaging dialogue.

Unbedingt auf Englisch kaufen

Wer überlegt, ob er sich das deutsche oder englische Hörbuch kaufen soll: Unbedingt die englische Version nehmen! Lauren Graham liest super und gut verständlich und viele Witze kommen in der deutsche Übersetzung einfach nicht rüber. Die negativen Kritiken der deutschen Version schiebe ich leider auch ein wenig auf die Übersetzung,schon der deutsche Titel entspricht einfach null der Handlung und der Geschichte. Diese ist im Englischen oft amüsant, oft traurig und findet immer die richtige Balance. Vier Sterne nur deshalb, weil ich das Ende etwas sehr abrupt finde und mir einen schönere Schlussszene gewünscht hätte. Klare Kaufempfehlung für die Englische Version:)

eher langweilig

Die Sprecherin ist gut. Ich mag Lauren Graham und ihren Humor grundsätzlich. Aber diese Geschichte fand ich persönlich einfach langweilig und voller Stereotypen. War nicht meins...

Ganz nett

Stellenweise sehr witzig. Etwas chaotische und leicht naive und nervige Protagonistin. Lauren Graham sollte noch etwas besser lesen üben, denn man hört, dass es nicht ihr Metier ist.
