    Turner Tanks with Bio

    I really thought I would enjoy this book. What I know of Kathleen Turner's life has been anything but boring so how this book manages to become such a snooze is beyond me. KT's ego is overwhelming. She seems to spend all her time trying to make herself look good and guess what--it doesn't work! One of the worst books I have ever read!

    Poor Writing

    Perhaps Turner's story is worth telling, but the book is written so poorly that I had to put it down. I just couldn't go on.

    A reviewer

    Ok, so as a Bookseller I often get advanced reader copies of soon to be released books, and I'm sorry to say that I was very disappointed by Kathleen Turner's book, 'Send Yourself Roses'. I enjoy Kathleen's talent, a lot of her movies, and her sense of comedy. However, this one was so self-centered and self-congratulatory that I barely made it through the first couple of chapters. And, I consider myself a fan. Everyone in her life is an extra, including her former husband and child, and it just reads as very mechanical and cold. I'm not sure if I'll be able to finish this one, but it's made it's way into 'the library' in my house 'i.e., the bathroom', and we'll see if I make any further progress on it or if it gets tossed after a couple of months. For now, I'm not impressed and wish I were. She's an amazing talent but apparently a very shallow human being 'and, this is an auto-biography, so it's not like it's someone else's take on her life so far'.
