    Very slow read

    I do like this actor, however this book moves so slow I could barely get through it. If I hadn't bought it, doubtful I would bother to finish. Sissy goes into great detail of everyday life during her childhood. Nothing terribly interesting to anyone unless you know her personally or are a huge fan. She wanders off into stories about various relatives. Again, not interesting.
    Writing style of this book seems to wander all over the place. It could have used some organization.
    I'm sorry to say I thought this was a very boring book. Very disappointed.

    Spacek book

    "My Ordinary Extraordinary Life" really was a pleasure to read. The ordinariness of a loving & active childhood... a solid marriage ... all these facets ... were refreshing to say the least . The down to earth-ness that is unthinkable as to most super stars was so prevalent thru out the book. I've been a fan which led me to the book but what kept me was the incredibly well written narratives and the honest emotion.

    Highly Recommend!!!

    Sissy is a wonderful author and also a brilliant actress. I love all ehr movies and was so glad that she wrote her autobiography. I have recently moved to Quitman, Texas and I can see how she really loved it here. Great Book, hope to see more from her in the future. I have already red ti three times. HA!!!!!

    good read, hard to put it down!

    She tells it like it is. Surprising how much this Jersey girl has in common with a Texas lass. Have always been a fan, now I know I like the real person, too.

    Reminds me of happier, simpler times in my life.

    I have not finished the book totally because of real life. BUT this is an easy, fast read. Love the ability to take me back to the happiest times in my life that she has and I did not grow up in Texas. This is a must read.
