Our Time Together; Stories from an old friend....

As you read "This Time Together: Laughter and Reflection", it's as if Carol Burnett was sitting in your living room having a glass of wine or at the breakfast table sipping coffee with you and regaling you with funny, sweet and melancholy stories from her life.

Man...
As you read "This Time Together: Laughter and Reflection", it's as if Carol Burnett was sitting in your living room having a glass of wine or at the breakfast table sipping coffee with you and regaling you with funny, sweet and melancholy stories from her life.

Many of the stories in the book deal with her variety series, "The Carol Burnett Show", as well as showbiz friends and colleagues like Lucille Ball, Beverly Sills, Julie Andrews, Walter Matthau, Cary Grant, Jimmy Stewart and many others. Her family, her early career trials and tribulations in New York City, and her life after "The Carol Burnett Show" are featured as well in this wonderful collection. One story will have you literally laughing out loud (Ms. Burnett's quick retort to a prickly hostess at an upscale ice cream shop in NYC) while the next will bring tears to your eyes (how devoted Lucy was in sending Carol flowers every year on her birthday).

The book and its stories show the humor, talent, and heart of one of television's most iconic and real entertainers - the finest comedienne of our time. An idol of mine since childhood, my love for her and her work has grown even more with this reading.

"This Time Together: Laughter and Reflection" is a great gift for anyone who remembers her classic variety show with lovely stories of her, Harvey, Vicki and Tim! I finished this book in no time because I couldn't put it down and I thoroughly enjoyed my time together with Carol.

Too much verbatim from original Book which I enjoyed, not enough new material

Carol revisits, verbatim, sections from her first book, One More Time, which was a poignant,funny, sad and wonderful book. So, I was disappointed Carol did not have enough new anecdotal material for us to enjoy in this second book. She and her fellow comedians were so ...
Carol revisits, verbatim, sections from her first book, One More Time, which was a poignant,funny, sad and wonderful book. So, I was disappointed Carol did not have enough new anecdotal material for us to enjoy in this second book. She and her fellow comedians were so very funny and special that I would have enjoyed a book just about her first show. This new book also bounced around to different time frames which was kind of awkward. If I had not read the first book, I would have enjoyed this book more. I did enjoy very much the stories about Carol and Julie Andrews. Two real ladies of the theater. I wish I could have seen them live just one time.

    Very enjoyable reading

    Famous people memoirs are usually very interesting. Carol Burnett is interesting to start with so you know her book would be the same.

    it was.

    it would be good though if your "create a pen name" worked properly.
    It doesn't let you continue. with the name approved the buttom "use your pen name does not work.
