Mixed feelings, ok read, she could have done better.
on November 8, 2012
I have always been a fan of Kirstie Alley and her irreverent personality, but I was disappointed in much of the book. It felt too scattered and frenetic. I enjoyed reading about her life in Kansas and her romantic encounters, also the glimpses into her family life, but I think she would have served herself and her story better if she had focused a bit more and tightened the scope of the book.
I really did not want to read about Scientology and skipped that entire chapter as she indicated one should do if you don't want to read about it. I also just skimmed through many parts where she pontificates about life, etc. I really just wanted to read about her and her life, and the men in it. I wanted to know what did happen with her and Patrick Swayze and John Travolta especially. I felt she left us hanging, though, (SPOILER ALERT) when she wrote that she and Patrick's wife Lisa Niemi are good friends today, but she isn't sure if Lisa knows about Kirstie and Patrick talking about running off together when they filmed North and South. I really hope she gave Lisa the head's up before the book went to press, otherwise that's not a very good friend.
