Quite a sad melancholic book from a lady known to be a comedian, but a real insight into struggling with long term illness.
"Such a funny lady gives us an insight to her life."
The shame of this wonderful comedian is having been taken too soon from life. This book gives an insight to Ms. Radner's impressions of life in general. If only to be able to hear her voice again, this book is worthy of ownership.
"Audio book just did not hold up .."
I have read the book years ago. I highly recommend reading the book. It's a heartbreaking story as told by Gilda with all the honesty and her own humor seeing her through. She tells her story and its hilarious!
The audio book sort of fails this story. Some of the best parts are missing.
"Sad and funny"
This story was one I was interested in since I had a friend who died from the same Cancer a year later, and Gene Wilder was actually a support to the husband- so it was of personal interest.
This is a great book narrated by Gilda Radner. I had no idea that she had such a rough time with her cancer. She was a brave woman and glad she wrote it all down and was able to record the audio book before she passed away. I feel bad this happened to her. She discusses being active in her treatment and I think this is the way people handle things today. When you listen to her read this book you will feel like you are having a chat with her.
I liked that Gilda narrated her own story. It is a sad story but a moving one. It makes you appreciate your own life and not to worry about the small things in life.
This book made me appreciate her even more. She was lucky to have Gene Wilder with her. He sounds like he was pretty strong for her despite it being so difficult This must have taken a huge toll on him also.
"Gilda - Timeless"
Gilda Radner wrote this book as she was dying of a disease that could have been cured if caught early.
She tells of her joys and depression, of wanting a family and losing a child.
I normally don't like autobiographies, but this one is touching and brings us into her life.
"Gilda, we miss you"
This was a heartbreak and listening to her own voice, a story you will not forget. The true story with all the pain and hope is unforgettable. thanks Gilda and family for sharing it.
I will listen to it again someday.
"The something is from the heart"
A story about Gilda's life, love and her struggle for that. She is an inspiration.
I liked how she told it; where she came from, what she did and how she fought cancer, her life with Gene and his support.
"Thank you Gilda!"
Thank you Gilda for leaving us this wonderful gift; a glimpse into your world, read by you. It's precious and meaningful and reminds us all of how fragile life really is. Cherish each day. A must read for anyone who's been affected by cancer or touched by Gilda.
"Worth the price to hear Gilda again"
I read this book many years ago just after Gilda Radner died and was affected by it. I saw this on audible read by the author and couldn't resist. It was worth the price just to hear Gilda tell her own story. She was a beautiful, funny, talented and intellegent woman who lost one hell of a fight against cancer. The story was told a month before she died and she was full of hope for survival. She fought the good fight.
"Gilda reads her story"
I've read so many stories of cancer and death. For me if I am diagnosed it will be stories like this that help me to see that medicine just doesn't have the answers. Medicine sees the cancer patient as a way and means to collect money. I would never use chemo or radiation .
Gilda wasn't meant to grow old. We will all remember her as young. God is ultimately in control of when we all will die.
