Description

In her first work of nonfiction, the beloved star of Gilmore Girls and Parenthood recounts her experiences on Gilmore Girls - the first and second times - and shares stories about life, love, and working in Hollywood. This collection of essays is written in the intimate, hilarious, and down-to-earth voice that made her novel, Someday, Someday, Maybe, a New York Times best seller. 

"This book contains some stories from my life: the awkward growing up years, the confusing dating years, the fulfilling working years, and what it was like to be asked to play one of my favorite characters again. You probably think I'm talking about my incredible achievement as Dolly in Hello, Dolly! as a Langley High School junior, a performance my dad called 'you're so much taller than the other kids.' But no! I'm talking about Lorelai Gilmore, who, back in 2008, I wasn't sure I'd ever see again. Also included: tales of living on a houseboat, meeting guys at awards shows, and that time I was asked to be a butt model. A hint: all three made me seasick." (Lauren Graham)

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

I wanted to hear Lorelai’s voice once again... but I got so much more!

Lauren is such an amazing storyteller, full of sparkling humor and wit. She manages to be inspirational (let’s talk about lifting each other up, girls!), wise, and hilarious and when the last words were spoken I felt like I just put down the phone after a long chat with my best friend.
And yes, Lauren, the last 4 words seem a cliffhanger to me too!

I smell treasure.

Lauren Graham is a gem. Going back to Stars Hollow was such a delight. And getting the chance to know her personal journey is tremendous. I absolutely loved it.

Talking as Fast as I Can

I never have finished a book in one sitting until now, yep about 4 and a half hours and funny it didn't seem that long. I say book because on top of the audio version I just finished listening to I followed along with the book, your welcome Ms. Graham! I Laughed some and said atta girl in others for choices she made. Either version or both you can't go wrong.

I AM CRYING!!

As much as I love her and look to her as a mother figure, I didn't know her other than as her GG persona. But she's exactly as you would expect. She is the real life Gilmore girl. Thank you Lauren for giving me the closure (or is it?) that I needed in order to move on with my life knowing that Lorelai Gilmore really does exist.

Lauren Graham is a treasure

This audiobook is one of the best I've heard.
Not only was the book itself absolutely amazing, but having Lauren read it made it a million times better. I need like ten more of these books girl!

Tearjerkingly Real

I am not one to give books or in this case audiobooks stunning reviews with every aspect earning 5 of 5 stars. I will not pretend I came upon this book by accident or because it was in my recommendations but entirely because I am both a Lauren Graham and Gilmore Girls fan. Although I am a fan, I was more focused on the stories she had to share and words she chose to write them with rather than the fact that this was a peek in to her life. I will be honest, I almost never read celebrity memoirs but this book made me feel a range of emotions, and the combination of Graham's written words and her voice reading it, made every line feel wonderfully genuine. It does not need to be compared and contrasted to other books because this is her unique story. She is very intelligent, and witty, and she sprinkled this book with many valuable pieces of advice that I believe anyone from eight to eighty years old could use. It was a pleasure to listen to and quite inspiring. The non linear story line also helps to emphasize the purpose of every chapter. I hope to one day be able to publish a book of my own and the advice from one of her mentors that she shares with us towards the end of her book has really stressed the importance of writing everyday and learning to make it less of a dreaded task and more so something necessary and enjoyable. Thank you Lauren for sharing these quirky anecdotes and invaluable peices of advice with us.

Everything you expect from Lauren Graham!

Talking As Fast As I Can was everything and more! You feel like you sitting down with Lauren and laughing along with her! So much wit. And it was fantastic to hear/read her thoughts of her career & see her entries of the revival! Makes you heart swell! I definitely have some tear stains near the end of my book. Can't wait for whats to come with her new book in the future!

Great but where are the photos?

Great book and to Lauren, herself, is great. How can audible listeners see the referenced photos?

Even hard-core fans can skip

Nothing worthwhile here. Unless you're an absolute Superfan there isn't much more information here then you can get in the standard cast interview.

I couldn't get past the beginning of this book.

I struggled to get past the first few chapters in this book. I love Lauren Graham and have watched her in many t.v. shows. For some reason her quirky antics and voice didn't translate well for me on audiobook.

Emotional, lustig, einfach fantastisch!

Als würde man Lauren Graham beim Geschichtenerzählen zuhören, ein fantastisches Buch mit Weisheiten, lustigen Anekdoten und einer tollen Sprecherin!

Es soll noch nicht aufhören!

Das ist auch schon so ziemlich die einzige Kritik, die ich habe: Das Hörbuch ist zu kurz.
Ansonsten ist es alles, was man von Lauren Graham erwartet: Schnell, witzig, ehrlich und so nah dran an Lorelai, dass es einfach nur schön ist. Für mich, die nach den neusten Folgen etwas enttäuscht war, der perfekte Abschied von den Gilmore Girls. Alle Nicht-Gilmore-Girls-Gucker werden aber sicher auch ihren Spaß dran haben.

Loved it!

It really is the role of the life time and Lauren Graham does a fantastic job in giving you the feeling that she’s actually talking to you (and that you are her best friend). It’s like listening to Lorelai, or even better because Lauren Graham is not fictional. It was such an easy listen and I enjoyed it so much and it makes me like „Gilmore Girls - A year in a life“ so much more. I’m not sure if it’s as enjoyable if you’re not a fan, but i would recommend it to every Gilmore Girls follower.

Ein Muss für alle Gilmore Girls Fans

Vorne weg: Ich würde mich selbst als einen der größten GG-Fans aller Zeiten bezeichnen. Ich kann nicht sagen, wie oft ich die Serie genau gesehen hab, aber die DVDs zeigen schon erhebliche Abnuzungserscheinungen ;-)

Für alle, die sich in diesem Statement wiedererkennen, kann ich das Hörbuch nur wärmstens empfehlen. Es geht nicht nur um GG, aber zu einem sehr großen Teil und man erfährt interessante und lustige Hintergrundinfos zur ursprünglichen Serie, sowie zur Fortsetzung.

Wer die Serie nicht gesehen hat (worauf wartet ihr??), kann trotzdem seinen Gefallen an dem Hörbuch finden, da Lauren Graham auch von ihrem Leben vor und nach GG erzählt - und das auf eine sehr unterhaltsame und doch nachdenkliche Art und Weise.

Für Lauren Graham oder echte Gilmore Girls Fans

Ich mag Lauren Graham und fand es recht schön geschrieben. Kurzweilig und leichte Kost. Es handelt sich um eine Teil-Biografie mit unterhaltsamen Anekdoten.
