One of the best books I've ever listened to, but I don't recommend listening while driving though. I laughed and cried so hard it was hard to pay attention to what I was doing. GREAT BOOK!

Dear Audible Reader,
Please read this book! You will agree, I'm sure, that it was completely worth it. Carol IS comedy. The things they do in comedy skits, she did in real life. What a joy to hear her read this herself. I wish it were longer, the time just flew by! What a wonderful woman, comedian and mother. Thank you Carol, for giving us this book...what a wonderful gift!

What did you like best about This Time Together? What did you like least?
Wanted to hear about the great stories from a comic great, but could not get past the first few chapters, talking about her media whore of a nanny, belching her way through burbank.
What could Carol Burnett have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?
write about people we know, its a poor reflection on a great comedy actress who was surrounded by very funny people, Harvey Lembeck, Tim etc.
What three words best describe Carol Burnett’s performance?
enthusiastic, warm and strong
If this book were a film would you go see it?
Any additional comments?
Almost partridgeques in the tag lines, needless to say I had the last laugh etc, talking about her dog choking ???? her Nanny who seemed to me to be a pain in the rear end, lots of "i saw daddy to tell him i'm off to broadway, i wish i could be there he says , dies within a few months ", who needs it.,
I have no interest in most recently published biographies, autobiographies or memoirs. Most are written by or about two-bit entertainers or overpaid sportsmen and women (some of whom are so young they have little of interest to report!).
Carol Burnett's 'This Time Together' does not fall in to this category. It helps that I spent the years of her 'heyday' in the USA so am familiar with her TV programme, but her recollections of the stars with whom she worked are wonderfully detailed and would be of interest to anyone interested in the old-time stars of Hollywood.
And the personal aspects of her life are described well and more than once moved me to tears. But sometimes too I was moved to tears of laughter - and thanks to the Internet was able to find some of the clips of her comedy show that were riotously described. And I cried with laugher again.
I can't recommend this audiobook highly enough. It is particularly good because it is read by the author who has an excellent 'speaking' voice that is easy to understand. I could not help but be moved by the emotion in her voice. It won't be long before I listen again.
It made my heart happy to hear Mrs. Burnett telling me the stories of her life.
She is a truly spectacular human.
I recommend this to anyone and everyone!
It will make you laugh out loud, smile and cry.
You'll certainly be a fan and feel like a friend after listening. Now on to her next audio book!
