I prefer personal memoirs read by the author - thinking this was also read by its writer.
HOWEVER - only the introduction is read by Kris Jenner - the rest of the book is by someone else - they are fine - but it's not at all the same or as "advertised".
Please change the "Narrated by" to reflect the actual reader of this audiobook - it is NOT Kris Jenner, and I would not have purchased it under these circumstances. Kris has a flair and a way of speaking that I wanted to hear - it is unfortunate that she could not have read the whole book. Introduction just left me wanting more of that same pizzaz - that lacked in the rest of her story.

Where does Kris Jenner...and All Things Kardashian rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
Not at the top, but in the top levels
What was one of the most memorable moments of Kris Jenner...and All Things Kardashian?
I appreciated getting an insiders look at the OJ - Nicole tragedy. And I was happy to know that even someone as close to them as the Kardashian's could see through all the BS and see the true psychopath OJ is.
What about Marcia Strassman and Kris Jenner (introduction) ’s performance did you like?
I like Kris' voice in the intro. I wish she would have narrated the whole book. With all due respect for Ms. Strassman, I don't think her voice fit well with Kris' words. I was distracted by her raspier voice with Kris' face in my mind. Seemed like a mismatch.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
Robert Kardashian's letter to her after the OJ trial. This book made me really admire Robert Kardashian. What an amazing man he was. And also, learning about Bruce Jenner. He sounds like a great guy too. I don't watch their show, so I enjoyed learning about them through Kris' perspective.Also, her talking about the loss of her Dads and Robert. That stirred up my personal experiences of my own losses. So those parts had me in tears.
Any additional comments?
I enjoyed the book, but I cringed every time Kris talks about a vehicle. "I drove up in my Range Rover"."I rented a Mercedes Bus." "We got in the BMW Limo." We get it Kris - you have money. My friends and I either do, or have driven high end cars also, but none of us refer to them by the brand. That's so annoying and pompous.
On another topic, with so many personal things she reveals in the book about herself and her family and also friends, I'm surprised there was no mention of Kim's sextape - unless I missed that. Urban Legend is that is what got the Kardashian's on the map and their show and began their fame. As a Mom myself, I wouldn't want to discuss things like that about my daughters either, but with all that WAS revealed in the book, it surprised me that was not.
Bottom line is, Kris has had some awesome opportunities which she very wisely acted on and ultimately became the person she is today. Yeah - a little hiccup with Ryan, but so what. She is a brilliant business woman with six gorgeous children and a great family. She's lucky and she's blessed.

Kris reminds us that no matter what family are key to our lives and health and happiness. sure we all make mistakes but it's how we tackle them that is key. laughter love and family are key to us living long happy prosperous lives. would like to meet Kris one day. I can only dream xxx
Life changing, thank you Kris for your honesty and wisdom! What a treat this was to listen to.
Half of this book covers the O J Simpson trial, if that's what interests you. Otherwise a good insight into life before children, life with Robert Kardashian and a genuine honesty from Kris.
I loved this book as a young mum in love although I have a lot of struggles I feel like I have a bright future and motivation to always be better
