There could have been more here, like I said, but overall this was an engaging story. In the introduction, Lucille Ball's daughter says that this book (written by Ball herself) sounds like her mother. Even though I, of course, never knew Ball personally, I believe it. The storytelling has a very personable quality to it.
Lucy and Desi each packed three lifetimes into one. This is a fun, engaging read that gives just the right amount of detail without becoming ponderous. Beyond the superficial, however, Lucy and Desi's stories are also very inspiring. Neither of them was an overnight success. Both had major roadblocks in their lives, but took what they could get and turned small opportunities and some misfortune into tremendous professional accomplishments.
Lucy seemed to be earnestly attempting to be even-handed in her accounting of she and Desi's lives. Her love for Desi shines through despite their marital problems and she takes her share of the blame.
In her writing Lucy just expresses an indefatigably positive attitude toward life that rubbed off on me a bit and just might rub off on you too.
SHE LOVES THIS BOOK! She said it is interesting and amusing and the fact this is the only autobiography by Lucy really brings it alive.
If you are a fan of Lucille Ball, or know someone who is, I think it would be hard to go wrong with this book.
