Dolly's vibrant personality and enthusiasm for life shines through in the audio version
, November 27, 2012
This review is from: Dream More: Celebrate the Dreamer in You (Audio CD)
Dolly Parton shares her philosophy on life in her new book based on a commencement speech that she gave to graduating students at the University of Tennessee in 2009. Now she expands on her beliefs and urges readers to dream more, learn more, care more, and be more.
Written in a conversational style with much humor and wit, Dolly offers her words of wisdom and advice gained over a lifetime of achievement. Her biggest wish is for people to dream more and stay true to those dreams. She tells us it's alright to be a dreamer. That's where great ideas start. She confesses she has always been a dreamer, still has dreams and will never stop working. She said it would be ok to drop dead on stage doing what she loves. Yes, she said that!
Using examples from her life beginning with her childhood and growing up poor, Dolly talks about her early dreams of going to Nashville to be a star, doesn't shy away from talking about her style of big hair, tight clothes and creating an appearance she was happy with. She is so open and forthcoming it's difficult not to like her.
I listened to the audiobook which was narrated by Dolly herself. Her vibrant personality and her enthusiasm for life shines through. As a bonus, she treats the listener to some of her music occasionally bursting into song on a few of the tracks. I highly recommend the audio version. You can't help feeling good when you are finished listening to this book.
