Good Read

I gave this book four instead of five stars for one reason: lacked pathos. While the writing is solid and clear, there was too much telling and not enough showing. I didn't feel the emotional "oomph" that I would have liked to have connected to. It was more a chronicle ...
I gave this book four instead of five stars for one reason: lacked pathos. While the writing is solid and clear, there was too much telling and not enough showing. I didn't feel the emotional "oomph" that I would have liked to have connected to. It was more a chronicle of her life, which is fine because she is one of the best comedic actresses to date and who in the heck doesn't want to know about Jane Lynch's professional career and private life? But there again, I missed the serious depth that could have come with her struggles growing up and finding her way around alcoholism, life in general. As a gay woman I applaud Jane for stepping into the light and living her life with class and determination. Hats off to Lara and Haden for stepping up to the plate as well. Jane, like Carol Burnett, will go down in the history of women who made us laugh, made us think, and gave us hope.

BEWARE THE 'ENHANCED' EBOOK!!!

At this time, the enhanced content does not work on the Color Nook and it will not download on my other devices at all. So don't waste the extra 5 bucks just to have tech support tell you to wait until they get it figured out.

    Truthful.

    Interesting memoir if you can relate to her story. I would recommend if you are a fan of hers.

    Funny and endearing

    I am a big Jane Lynch fan. I gobbled up her witty, endearing excerpts of her life. This was a well balanced memoir that gave us a good look Jane's more private world. Well done!

    Love Jane Lynch...Loved her book...

    Jane Lynch is great and her book is written as though she was chatting with you over a cup of coffee and telling some stories about her life. She doesn't seem to hold back on the less than proud moments which makes her even more lovable. Funny and quirky stories about how she got from there to here and a quick read.

    Great book. Jane is truly inspiring

    Jane tells her story so well and with humor that you cant stop reading. She keeps you wondering where her life will take her in the next chapter. She also brings to life how it isnt instant fame overnight for most actors.
