Boring Droning Voice

Perhaps I learned a little bit more about the subject than I had previously, but it was a great price to pay for slogging through this boring account of every dollar she spent, every person she is or was mad at, or every luxury item she has purchased for her friends. The author's own narration was awful.

I'll save you a lot of time. She might have had sex for money when she was 13. She has a lot of neer do well relatives, some of whom are religious fanatics who feel they haven't bled her enough. She likes luxurious things and she holds a grudge if somebody shows her disrespect. OK, that is all you need to know about Oprah.

WOW! The Big O

What a great book, the true side of Oprah! I do remember reading and hearing Oprah say many of the things that reviewed in the book, however it is easy to she that like all Actors Oprah is on stage playing to her audience, A big thank you to her aunt/cousin that came forward, her aunt/cousin is a hoot!
