Descrizione del libro

A funny, intimate memoir by the beloved star Gilmore Girls, published for the revival of the series on Netflix.

Dalla quarta di copertina

In Talking as Fast as I Can, Lauren Graham hits pause for a moment and looks back on her life, sharing laugh-out-loud stories about growing up, starting out as an actress, and years later, sitting in her trailer on theParenthood set and asking herself, 'Did you, um, make it?' She opens up about the challenges of being single in Hollywood ('Strangers were worried about me; that's how long I was single!'), the time she was asked to audition her butt for a role, and her experience being a judge on Project Runway ('It's like I had a fashion-induced blackout.')

In 'What It Was Like, Part One', for the first time Graham settles in for an epic Gilmore Girls marathon and reflects on being cast as the fast-talking Lorelai Gilmore. The essay 'What It Was Like, Part Two' reveals how it felt to pick up the role again nine years later, and what doing so meant to her.

Some more things you will learn about Lauren: She once tried to go vegan just to bond with Ellen DeGeneres, she's aware that meeting guys at awards shows has its pitfalls ('If you're meeting someone for the first time after three hours of hair, makeup, and styling, you've already set the bar too high.'), and she's a card-carrying REI shopper ('My bungee cords now earn points!').

Complete with photos and excerpts from the diary Graham kept during the filming of the recent Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life, this book is like a cozy night in, catching up with your best friend, laughing and swapping stories, and - of course - talking as fast as you can.

La scrittura di Lauren Graham è sempre molto piacevole e, per la fortuna dei fans di Gilmore Girls, c'è anche molto di Lorelai Gilmore, ed è bello pensare che tra persona e personaggio non ci sia poi un grande divario. Detto questo, da fan sfegatata di Gilmore Girls, devo dire che questo libro ha soddisfatto le mie aspettative a metà. Chi ama lo show, credo sia normale che aspetti sempre qualcosa di più: sono raccontati molti dettagli e l'ultimo capitolo è una sorta di diario sul set del revival, ma non so, c'è qualcosa che manca, ma credo di attribuirlo alla mia fame di dettagli che non verrà mai del tutto soddisfatta. Per quanto riguarda la scelta narrativa, in questo caso autobiografica, direi che è sicuramente "entertaining": leggera, scherzosa, anche introspettiva quando si parla dei suoi rapporti interpersonali, amorosi e non. Tuttavia, avendo letto anche il suo romanzo poco prima,"Someday,someday maybe", dovendo mettere a confronto i due, sceglierei senz'altro il romanzo. La Lauren Graham scrittrice, a mio parere,esce fuori molto meglio in questa versione che in un'autobiografia dove, anche per necessità di marketing, si ha il bisogno di consegnare al pubblico quello di cui ha bisogno, in vista del concomitante revival. Per questo, a volte, risulta come un elenco di cose successe nella sua vita lanciate così, senza nesso con le cose precedenti, ma comunque rimane un'autobiografia molto confidenziale, e questo mi è piaciuto. Concludendo, lo consiglio per i fan, per il lettori, consiglio il romanzo!

5.0 su 5 stelle I smell snow... 1 dicembre 2016
Di Emily - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina rigida
I wasn't originally going to review this book. The reasons being, to quote Chandler Bing, "are threefold": a. I love, love, love Lauren Graham; b. the book has some weird tangents that I can't in good conscience avoid mentioning c. I would never be able to bring myself to publicly critique this woman, who is an absolute genius, if I had truly negative things to say about the book (after all, I could never compromise my "reviewer's integrity").

Talking as Fast as I Can starts off extremely strongly, particularly if you listen to the audio (which highlights her acting abilities, including her added treat). The story begins as a memoir, discussing her upbringing and her jaunt into the wonderful world of acting. So far, so good. Lauren is self-deprecatingly hilarious and an extremely talented all-around artist, which includes a strong aptitude for writing. (Say what you will about the subject matter of the book, but Graham can write). Through the first section, about her early days as an actress in graduate school and then in a theater troupe, I was pleasantly engaged, with two thumbs up.

At that point, one of my thumbs started to waiver. The book, admittedly, takes some unexpected turns in the content department as it teeters between advice column, anecdotal essays, and personal stories, mostly out of chronological order. While it's fine to jump around in time - and it's fine to have a mixture of styles - the combination of styles and time periods is somewhat chaotic here. While I found the writing interesting and fun to hear, I was leaning towards not reviewing the book at this point... lest I not be able to give my girl, Lorelai, five well-earned stars.

Where Lauren starts to draw me back in is around the section that she discusses the importance of women lifting each other up and goes into a tale that focuses on giving advice to a younger generation. I will admit that, again, I wished I was reading more of a memoir, but her authenticity in this portion of the book is palpable. Lauren was twice a guest in the final season of "The Rosie O'Donnell Show," and she struck me then, in 2002 - as she did Rosie and later Ellen - as a true, down-to-earth, funny, kick-butt kind of gal (or something that sounds cooler than that but equally awesome). From those days forward (though I didn't get into Gilmore Girls and obviously Parenthood until much later), I knew I was a fan of Graham. Towards the back-half of the book, I started to recall that feeling: that she was my pal, decoupaging in the craft corner with Rosie.

When I knew, definitively, that I could give this book five stars (and mean it) is in the final section when Lauren discusses the Gilmore Girls revival. She is such a "real" person, and her account is so personal and touching. For fans of the show, this section alone makes Talking as Fast as I Can a must-have. Lauren is gracious and humble with an unbelievable work ethic and a positive attitude. Her stories might be slightly disjointed, but they're uplifting; they're positive; they're the kinds of life affirmations that so many of us need right now. Lauren is confident, self-aware, and legitimately nice... with a large dose of humor thrown in... and she's exactly the kind of role model - a person focused on the work before the glitz, glamour, fame, or fortune - that we should all be looking to for advice in today's world... a world filled with reality shows and Caviar dreams.

Sure, maybe her book is a little quirky. I like quirky. Quirky is a good thing.

So thank you Lauren for giving us a slice of your life and for pouring your heart into your characters that have touched so many of us over so many years. Thank you for being appreciative of your audience and for offering us guidance, taking us under your wing through this writing in a way that only you can.

Love, love, love this!!! From the moment I started reading I am laughing out loud. I adore the fact that Lauren writes the way that she comes across in interviews. Someone who is funny, sharp and willing to make fun of herself. I loved the analysis of the golf ball that fell out of her car and the way that she tries to protect her personal life. Or the character that she develops to hide her old lady tendencies. Lauren Graham is an amazing writer and she is now on my list of people I would love to share a coffee and lunch with.

4.0 su 5 stelle it was funny and thoroughly enjoyable 14 marzo 2017
Di Living Life With Joy - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina rigida Acquisto verificato
As soon as I knew that Gilmore Girls was creating a Year in the Life on Netflix, I slowly began to make my way through watching all 7 seasons from start to finish to have the full series fresh in my mind. I wanted to complete all 7 seasons prior to watching the new shows, and although it took a long time, it was well worth the wait!

After watching the new Year in the Life episodes, it was time to read Lauren’s book Talking as Fast as I Can. Her novel reads in such a way that you feel as though you are spending time hanging out with Lauren and that she is telling you the story in person. Needless to say, it was funny and thoroughly enjoyable, though it was a quick read and I was sad it was over so soon.

After reading her book, I realized that I’d been living under a rock because I had never heard of the show she was on after Gilmore Girls called Parenthood. I started watching that show and again am thoroughly being entertained by Lauren and her new cast of family members. I’m almost through season 2 and thankful that there’s quite a few more.

I digress, this started off as a review for her book, didn’t it? The only thing you need to know about it, is that you should read it, and that you’re guaranteed to enjoy it. The end.

Once I picked this book up, I could not put it down. I've been a Lauren Graham fan since her first line was spoken on Gilmore Girls (the first series). I anxiously awaited Parenthood simply because that was her next project - though it was a good series, without her I might not have seen it. When the Netflix Gilmore Girl movies were announced, I was among the adoring fans waiting for my beloved girls to return to my living room. Talking as Fast as I Can brings back to me the voice of LG in her series', and the happiness she always exuded on screen. I laughed out loud many times while devouring this book, and it will be worthy of rereads in my eyes.

Lauren Graham brings us her memoirs in the form of essays that span portions of her life. Truly she covers much more than I expected her to here, giving us a synopsis of her childhood, then walking us through her education and struggling actress days, before launching into stories from the sets of Gilmore Girls (both times) and Parenthood. My favorite part, if I could name one because I loved the whole book, was her sit down with the first 7 years of Gilmore Girls, calling out what she remembers of herself from that time, what she thought of her character arc, and how times have changed. That's the trick with a show that depends so heavily on pop culture, it's quite obviously dated (Rory's use of a Filofax date planner, Lorelai and her VCR), and yet so much fun to revisit. As a huge Lauren Graham and Gilmore Girls fan, this book is like dark chocolate - a decadent treat.

Lauren Graham has a breezy writing style that pokes fun at herself and the world in the most gentle way possible. Her writing style is so natural that you feel like you are eavesdropping on a conversation - and what a conversation it is. Her wit and pacing are reminiscent of any script of Gilmore Girls ever, which tells me that no one else could have ever played Lorelai Gilmore quite like she did. She knows all the right stories to tell, so there's never a dull moment in the book.

3.0 su 5 stelle Meandering Stream of Consciousness in Need of Editing 26 marzo 2017
Di artbuilders - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina rigida Acquisto verificato
Really enjoy Lauren Graham the actress but not Lauren Graham the book. It's a meandering stream of consciousness wandering aimlessness from cover to cover. She writes like her character on Lorelai Gilmore talks only, without a script to constrain her, doesn't seem to ever advance the story. One chapter is tongue-in-cheek diet advice. In another, she watches each episode of Gilmore Girls and offers such insightful commentary as to the t-shirt she was wearing or whether she straightened her hair. By the end, you learn little about her and even less about those she worked with. The impression I got was that she agreed to write this book but procrastinated and was forced to fill the pages with something. With that said, it hasn't made me like her any less as an actor and maybe even a little more as a person as she seems very down-to-earth, which is why I added and extra star.
