Let me start by saying that I love Lauren Graham. I’m currently watching her on Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist and loving every minute of it. Lauren is amazing. In everything she does.
That means that I needed to read this book that I heard about a long time ago and never really got around to reading. So, I did what I always do when I am impatient after ordering a book on Amazon, I downloaded the Audiobook. I was bummed that it was only 28 minutes long. I thought that there must be some mistake. No way could this book be so short.
After some research, and the canceling of my Amazon order, I realized that the reason why it’s so short. It is an expansion of her 2017 commencement speech that she gave at her hometown high school. Oh. Yeah. Not what I signed up for. But, I used my Audible book credit so I was listening.
I still adore Lauren Graham. She is still funny. I still would read another book she published. However, I have to admit I did not enjoy this as much as I enjoyed her last book. I wouldn’t read it again, but it would make a good gift for a graduate.
I wish I could say nicer things about this book. I wanted to love it. It just did not live up to my expectations. That is probably my fault for not looking at the description before I purchased it. Oh well, you live and learn.
Not that she will ever see this. But Lauren, if you are reading this: I still love you. You are still amazing. Please write another book.
