Growing Up Fisher: Musings, Memories, and Misadventures Reviews

    Way too scattered for me. There was no rhyme or reason to the progression of chapters/section/musings and I ended up reading bits and pieces. And I'm really sorry as I've been looking forward to this since I heard about it last summer. Guess I prefer my memoirs to a little more linear. ...

    She's no Carrie, that's for sure. You can tell she tries to be a clever wordsmith like her sister but it comes off as phony at times...trying to hard and just not authentic. Her politics are annoying and she's just like all those other Hollywood types...nothing original about her. I mean nothing. I ...

    Found the book interesting in learning more about Connie Stevens. However , Joely isn't Carrie and she tries awfully hard to be in this book. Starting a book out with f'ing this and that to me is not a quality author. She constantly is writing about being broke and needing money. I believe this book...

    It was okay. There’s some interesting family history here, and she does have a fascinating family, but the writing is pretty scattered and unorganized. One moment she’s sharing a memory from when she was 5 years old and the next she’s talking about something that happened last week an...
