Debbie Reynolds is a true movie star with class to spare. She hardly led a charmed life because of her poor choice in men who used her and stole her money. But she worked hard and was a good mother to her children. Her long and successful career was not handed to her. I thought this was a wonderful book about a legendary Hollywood star who loves and appreciates her fans.

The first lady of stage and song has once again dazzled herfans with an insightful and indepth account of the last 30 years of her unbelievable life and career. Highly recommended memoir!

Debbie Reynolds has had a full life. This book tells of both the good times and the down times. It is a quality story and well worth reading.

I found this book rather boring in parts especially the part dealing with Debbie's fight to keep her "collection" together and find a place to house it. Other parts in the book about her movie career I found interesting and learned a few facts about her early life.

Read her first autobiography years ago, and kept looking for an update. Enjoyed her first one more, but was glad to read about the rest of her life. Interesting to read about her strength and being a dedicated mother, and yet be such a fool for the men in her life. Didn't seem to learn lessons from first two husbands to apply to number 3, the worst. Enjoyed reading it.

Great book easy reading Debbie had an interesting life but always kept her spirits up and has a good way dealing with her life.

Very informative book. Debbie tells it all and what a life! Eddie Fisher would have been very lucky if he had stayed with her and raised their children together. The only thingI didn't like at all was Debbie letting her 16 yr. old son go with an older woman in France. Debbie where were your morals!? Other than that she is a hard worker who never gives up. :)

Debbie Reynolds tells her story in a very endearing manner with "Unsinkable." The book focuses on the latter part of her career and life. It starts with Debbie marrying her third husband, Richard Hamlett. Debbie's kindhearted nature shines in this memoir. Her desire to create a museum to house her Hollywood memorabilia is genuine, but poor personal choices threaten to derail her. Debbie enjoys working and entertaining her fans. Throughout her challenges and disappointments, her children, Todd and Carrie, help to steady her. The writing is easy to read and engaging. The chapters are well organized, and I enjoyed reading about the movies she made. What touched my heart was how Debbie dealt with hardship. Her third husband proves deplorable and bankrupts her. Debbie looks adversity right in the face and picks herself back up with class. Nothing can sink Debbie's resolve to start new chapters in her life when she has to. I was motivated to learn more about her story after hearing of her tragedic death. I discovered Debbie Reynolds was a gifted entertainer, funny, charming, and kind-hearted. How she carried herself in the face of adversity is to be admired. I didn't want to put his book down. Even if you're not a fan of Debbie, her story is compelling and will touch your heart. She's truly "Unsinkable." I highly recommend this book.

Really liked end portion, where she broke down each film made and her anecdotes for each!

The book seemed too sugar coated and the storylines jumped all over the place. It looked like she was grasping at anything to use as filler. About two thirds of the book is just unorganized garbage.

I was looking for something different to read and came across this. There is nothing juicy in here. It was ok but painting herself as a good girl repeatedly and constantly bringing up the Eddie Fisher story got boring and seems to me she made money off it in her acts that she used to bail her out of bad decisions.

"Unsinkable" is an enjoyable romp through Debbie Reynold's career and personal life. Written with a sense of humor, the book never derails into gossip or bitterness, even in the midst of a painful situation such as the romance between Reynolds' then-husband Eddie Fisher and Liz Taylor. Debbie is a gracious and abundantly talented performer, and I'm glad she is still actively sharing her talents.
