Review: Talking as Fast as I Can – Lauren Graham

With 2016 winding down I am picking up every short book that I can in order to read as much as possible.

But if you know me at all, or read this blog, you know that I decided to read Lauren Graham’s Taking as Fast as I Can because I am crazy about all thing Gilmore Girls.

Easily one of my most anticipated releases of the year, Talking as Fast as I Can is Graham’s memoir that spans childhood, Gilmore Girls, Parenthood, and the revival.

Did Graham’s life make for an entertaining read? Keep on reading to find out my thoughts and opinions.

The Book

In her first work of nonfiction, the beloved star of Gilmore Girls and Parenthood recount her experiences on Gilmore Girls—the first and second time—and shares stories about life, love, and working in Hollywood. This collection of essays is written in the intimate, hilarious, and down-to-earth voice that made her novel, Someday Someday Maybe, a New York Times bestseller.

 

The Review

Lauren Graham is quite the character. An insane, weird, wonderful woman who I could read about for days.

And yet, just like the Gilmore Girls revival that I waited oh so long for, I couldn’t savour this over the corse of a few days.

It literally took me four hours to plow through the pages, and by the end of it I had a deeper appreciation for both Graham and Gilmore Girls.

Some of the hilarity that ensues in the aptly named chapters includes Betty White, paper towels, house boats, and the 70s. What more could you want in a memoir?

I guess the only other thing I have to say, something that was stressed to the nth degree by Graham herself, the Gilmore Girls ending, just like the ending of this book is “really more of a cliffhanger…Hmmmm….”

Overall Rating: 5 out of 5 stars.
