Book is Good but Audio is Better
This Time Together: Laughter and Reflection - Carol Burnett

I grew up watching Carol Burnett, I saw her in a few movies and as a guest star. She is a phenomenal talent. Reading this book and listening to her telling (audio) of the book allowed a new insight into her life and career. Moments that were filled with laughter, moments where you appreciated how hard she worked to get to her dream and one moment where you heard all the emotion as she read her daughter's obituary. Yes, I actually cried at hearing the emotion in her voice describing her daughter's death. The reading was good, but hearing her tell the story was even better.

quote 2018-02-20 18:42

“Well, my friend over there said there was no way you’d find me good-lookin’. I told him there’s no way you’d be able to resist my Southern charm and undeniably sexy abs, so since we can’t seem to agree, I figured I’d come right to the source and ask myself.” He stares intently at me for a moment, licking his lower lip before he sucks it in briefly as I remain dumbfounded. “So whaddaya think? Is he right?” He gives me one of those smug, I-think-I’m-God’s-gift-to-women winks before showing a slight preview of the abs he felt so inclined to mention.

Rare Glimpse into Zoo Life
We Bought A Zoo - Benjamin Mee
I have seen the ending of the movie several times and have laughed at some of the things said in the movie, so I was curious about the book. I borrowed the book in audio and Kindle format (listening while in the car, reading when sitting somewhere quiet, like a library). I enjoyed the book very much and noticed that while I thought (based on the bits of the movie I saw) that it was in the USA, not Great Britain, as the book shows. I thought the wife was deceased before they bought the zoo, but she died during the fixing the zoo. 

On the whole, the book was a very good story showing how much goes into making the zoo and getting it so that it would open. I truly enjoyed the look into zoo life and felt sorry for the family when they lost their Catherine, but laughed at the moments where it was made funny, like the lion and trying to stand his ground when the lion attacked and roared. Rare glimpses of life in a zoo. I do recommend the book.
