I haven't listened to too many biographies, so this is one of my first. I became interested in Shannon & Gene from watching their TV show Family Jewels, so to hear a bit of background about how she became who she is today was really interesting to me. The fact she also narrated her own book was a plus for me. I also loved the foreword by Gene Simmons himself and I was laughing out loud at my work at some of the things he was saying. These people are very real and love to laugh and that brings laughter to my life. It's nice to get to know Shannon better because I really didn't know much about her.

Shannon Tweed makes me laugh, cry , and want to be her friend. Entertaining and thought-provoking. Fantastic.

What did you like most about Kiss and Tell?
Shannon's descriptions of growing up in Canada, her sense of humour - she often laughs at herself
What did you like best about this story?
I enjoyed the 80s section - Shannon's burgeoning career in Hollywood and her lack of pretension about it. I liked her respect for Hugh Hefner but also respected how she never took the Playboy mansion seriously.
What does Shannon Tweed bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?
Her reveries - small moments where she is reading and seems to recall the event at the same time. It comes out in her reading.
Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
I laughed often. It isn't a particular emotional book - Shannon never really plays for sympathy though there are poignant memories.
Any additional comments?
It won't be for everyone. Shannon is not particularly famous but her story was interesting from beginning to end.
