I got restless waiting to get to The Pretenders. Most of this book is Chrissie's story before The Pretenders, and then when we finally get to The Pretenders they only get a couple of chapters and the story ends with the deaths of Pete and Jimmy. There was no mention of everything that followed, which I was really interested in. Also, Rosanna Arquette has a really squeaky, grating voice and she reads this book as if she's reading a children's book in front of a class of 10 year olds. She overacts throughout her entire performance. Why didn't Chrissie read it herself? I had just finished Pete Townshend's and Patti Smith's autobiographies which were both beautifully written, so maybe I'm a little spoiled, but this could have been a lot better.

What did you like best about Reckless? What did you like least?
Her rawness of becoming a female rock n roll star!
What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?
Her honesty about her parents.
Would you listen to another book narrated by Rosanna Arquette and Chrissie Hynde ?
Determined by content by story.
Was Reckless worth the listening time?
I wish she went on past her bandmates deaths. I wanted to know more about the development and songs beyond the first two albums. She is so much more.
Any additional comments?
I would like to more in depth of a women in the harsh world of rock n' roll. I felt this was written with kindness and not just harsh reality with respect.
