Summary

Kris Jenner executive produces and stars as matriarch on the hit reality show Keeping Up with the Kardashians on E!, now in its fifth smash season. Here, this ambitious businesswoman who has catapulted her family into the public consciousness reveals what it’s like living under the celebrity spotlight and touches on themes of love, loss, marriage, divorce, and motherhood.

Now the mother of six children - Kourtney, Kim, Khloe, Robert Jr., Kendall, and Kylie (and the grandmother of Mason) - opens up about her first marriage to Robert Kardashian (widely known as one of O.J. Simpson’s defense attorneys); her current marriage to Olympic decathlon Bruce Jenner; her often controversial parenting style; O.J. Simpson (she was Nicole Simpson’s best friend); her work in television (she is currently the executive producer of all four hit Kardashian shows - Keeping Up with the Kardashians, Kourtney and Khloe Take Miami, Kourtney and Kim Take New York, Khloe & Lamar); and more. A media and marketing powerhouse, Kris and her family collectively earned more in 2010 than Angelina Jolie, Sandra Bullock, and Tom Cruise combined. This inside look will appeal to more than just other multitasking moms, but also anyone interested in what it’s like to be the head of such a famous family!

Not what I expected but actually better

I was expecting something a bit more focused on the era of the kardashians being famous but actually it was really interesting looking at the younger side of them.
And with a lot more information about the OJ Simpson murder case than I thought there would be, but this was actually fascinating.
The difference between the prologue voice and the actual narrator was a bit jarring but after a chapter I couldn't notice the difference as much.
It is a bit slow at the start but is worth it to get into it.
I wouldn't say the book has aged well though as the final chapters talk about Khloe and Lamar being together forever as well as kourtney and Scott, a tad cringeworthy if you watch KUWTK.

A lesson in how to make the most of your life.

This is a story about embracing every opportunity, appreciating others and not being afraid of change.
I've been recovering from suspected Covid 19 for over two months now. This book has been an unexpected source of strength and appreciation of life and it's opportunities. Its made me reassess my life in light of my recent experiences and made me remember when I used to feel like this about life and what changed over the last few years.

Interesting

I've become quite interested in the book after learning more about the Kardashians while in lockdown. I needed something to take my mind of the situation we were living and decided I needed something quite trivial to take my mind away. I ended up watching "Keeping up with the Kardashians" from serie 1 to the current. Therefore, readind/listening to this book made sence to me.
I enjoyed the book as it tells about Kris life in a quite detailed way. She also offers an insight on her friend's Nicole Brown Simpson's life and the end of it. Very interesting to see the difference perception of someone's personality through different people's yes, for instance her ex husband and here her best friend.
The reader was so enthusiastic that eventually I forgot was not Kris reading it. She sounded just like Kris.
I can say it's a great autobiography which takes the reader in a truly emotional emotional rollercoaster through someone's life. Very well read!

loved it

I really enjoyed this as it takes you tight back to Kris's early life, you learn more about her mother MJ and the OJ simpson chapters were also fascinating. although the last few chapters are about Kuwtk and I knew most of the content all ready, it was definitely worth a listen.

I found it very interesting, although she’s suffered many losses in her life, I’m impressed by her determination and her obvious love for her 6 children. I didn’t think it was my type if book but actually I really enjoyed it

Not narrated by author

I prefer personal memoirs read by the author - thinking this was also read by its writer.

HOWEVER - only the introduction is read by Kris Jenner - the rest of the book is by someone else - they are fine - but it's not at all the same or as "advertised".

Please change the "Narrated by" to reflect the actual reader of this audiobook - it is NOT Kris Jenner, and I would not have purchased it under these circumstances. Kris has a flair and a way of speaking that I wanted to hear - it is unfortunate that she could not have read the whole book. Introduction just left me wanting more of that same pizzaz - that lacked in the rest of her story.

Mixed feelings but mostly good

Where does Kris Jenner...and All Things Kardashian rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Not at the top, but in the top levels

What was one of the most memorable moments of Kris Jenner...and All Things Kardashian?

I appreciated getting an insiders look at the OJ - Nicole tragedy. And I was happy to know that even someone as close to them as the Kardashian's could see through all the BS and see the true psychopath OJ is.

What about Marcia Strassman and Kris Jenner (introduction) ’s performance did you like?

I like Kris' voice in the intro. I wish she would have narrated the whole book. With all due respect for Ms. Strassman, I don't think her voice fit well with Kris' words. I was distracted by her raspier voice with Kris' face in my mind. Seemed like a mismatch.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Robert Kardashian's letter to her after the OJ trial. This book made me really admire Robert Kardashian. What an amazing man he was. And also, learning about Bruce Jenner. He sounds like a great guy too. I don't watch their show, so I enjoyed learning about them through Kris' perspective.Also, her talking about the loss of her Dads and Robert. That stirred up my personal experiences of my own losses. So those parts had me in tears.

Any additional comments?

I enjoyed the book, but I cringed every time Kris talks about a vehicle. "I drove up in my Range Rover"."I rented a Mercedes Bus." "We got in the BMW Limo." We get it Kris - you have money. My friends and I either do, or have driven high end cars also, but none of us refer to them by the brand. That's so annoying and pompous.

On another topic, with so many personal things she reveals in the book about herself and her family and also friends, I'm surprised there was no mention of Kim's sextape - unless I missed that. Urban Legend is that is what got the Kardashian's on the map and their show and began their fame. As a Mom myself, I wouldn't want to discuss things like that about my daughters either, but with all that WAS revealed in the book, it surprised me that was not.

Bottom line is, Kris has had some awesome opportunities which she very wisely acted on and ultimately became the person she is today. Yeah - a little hiccup with Ryan, but so what. She is a brilliant business woman with six gorgeous children and a great family. She's lucky and she's blessed.

A very real look into the life of Kris Kardashian Jenner

I thought this was a fantastic read (listen). Kris gives a very real look into her life beginning as a child, to her meeting and marriage to Robert Kardashian, the birth of their children, her affair, the murder and trial of her best friend, and finally meeting Bruce Jenner and her way to fame and fortune. This was a very honest bio, better than most others I have read. The only downside, it would have been better if Kris narrated the entire book herself. Overall, I recommend.

Diary of an attention whoring parasite

Kris Jenner is a master marketer and does have some work ethic, but really has little else to offer. Her entire fortune comes from riding the coat tails of others. She totally screwed over her first husband who gave her any/everything, she used her second husband's accomplishments to build a business on, whored out her entire family to a reality tv show and now is selling a book largely based upon her friend's murder.

Very drawn out - the book could have been much shorter. I also really tired of all the name dropping and vacuous descriptions of everything as either "amazing" or "fabulous".

The narrator did a good job.

Recommend getting from the library if you can instead of lining her pockets.

Surprisingly interesting

I really enjoyed this book ... Surprisingly. The story starts off a little slow, but picks up and really gives some great insight into Kris's life experiences. If you're looking for juicy info regarding the Kardashians this might not be the book for you. This mainly focuses on Kris and important life lessons she has.

The main issue I had while reading is some of the wording was very repetitive.

Changed my opinion on them..

Where does Kris Jenner...and All Things Kardashian rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

The narrator did an excellent job in the narration of the book. Not only is her voice similar to Kris's but she does a great job in keepin you captivated at all times. Her voice is very clear and does a great job in communicating the message.

Ever since the Kardashian's show started I watched. I enjoyed the show because of the dynamic of the family. I liked Kris from the beginning because not only is she physically beautiful but she apeared to be a great mom. I gotta say the last few seasons I lost interest because of Kim's shallowness adn drama. I think she's an ugly person regardless of her physical beauty and I just can't understand how she could be Kris's daughter and even worse, how Kris can compare herself so much to Kim and say they are exactly alike!?!

This book elaborates on Kris's parenting skills and her love for her family. She pours out her heart to you and is blunt and honest about everything in her life, including her mistakes. She lets you see how human she is and a side of Kris that iss very nurturing, loving, and strong. It's portrays someone you didn't imagine could be simply just because of the bad persona her daughter Kim has ended up being.

If you liked this family but then kinda lost interest because of their drama, this book will allow you to simply appreciate the best Kardashian/Jenner out of all, Kris!

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The best part is when they read to you the letter Kris wrote to Robert Kardashian apologizing and letting him know how thankful she was for all he did for her. She really depicts this man as a wonderful person.
