I loved this book. You get your money's worth because it's full length. The author, Adrienne Barbeau reads it beautifully. She tells some interesting stories, from her growing up years to working on Maude and more. I think you will like it!

Any additional comments?
I love memoirs and wanted to like this book. I did not get beyond the first hour because it is boring. Worse than boring though - it is actually annoying. Adrienne has been journaling since 5th grade and she quotes passages from her teenage journals as though she had some deep insight she must share if we REALLY wanted to know her. In addition, there are several passages where she name drops many authors and books as though to impress the reader. It happens too often and seems pretentious and unnecessary. I ended up returning the book.
A better editor would have helped her.
The best part of the audio book was the opening when she sang a bit of "There are Worse Things I Could Do." She had an impressive voice.
