Listener Opinions

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jeannie | 2/20/2014

    " I really wanted to like this book, but it just kept getting worse and worse the further in I went. She is one scatter brained woman, starts one topic and then off on another, it was an irritating read and a total waste of time for me! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cher | 2/16/2014

    " This book is excellent in that the author tells her story as she experienced it, not with too much hindsight cluttering it up. However, one gets the feeling that she is very much craving approval & it made me sad for her that she lacked the self-assurance of 1/3 of a Marcia Brady. That tone could be her ghostwriter's fault, though. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jen | 2/16/2014

    " Well written autobiography tell-all. Down to earth. She's had quite an interesting life. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Macjest | 1/23/2014

    " Yes, I grew up watching the Brady Bunch, so this book caught my attention. Is it just me, or does it seem like very few celebrity children have much of a normal life? It was very sad reading her story. Her grandmother and mother both suffered from syphilis and mental problems. When Maureen heard about the mental issues, she was sure she would go insane. It turns out she ended up on Prozac for depression. Before that she went through a major cocaine binge. Reading her story, I'm surprised she has turned out as well as she has and that she was able to have a normal baby. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Katy | 1/19/2014

    " This book is awesome(ly) bad, but of course quite the page turner. I decided hey, it's the end of the semester lets read something really entertaining. Maureen uses such terms as "socute" and "hot and heavy" throughout the book. Fun fact: Maureen believes she was "knocked over" by Jesus midafternoon while shopping in Westwood. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sandi | 1/9/2014

    " I loved the Brady Bunch back in the day. I was intrigued by this book her Maureen McCorkicks life story. I enjoyed it but wow what she has gone thourhg in her life. I had no idea. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lindsey Anderson | 12/27/2013

    " Just had to know if she really had a crush on Greg... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Krysia | 12/12/2013

    " Marcia Marcia Marcia did not have an idyllic life; such drug abuse. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Becky Shetler | 10/23/2013

    " This woman is lucky to be alive! Stories of addiction and struggle always intrigue me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tanya | 10/21/2013

    " Definately learning some new things about the girl/woman that played Marcia Brady "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mine | 9/21/2013

    " It's exactly what you think it is, only not as juicy and filled with lines that truly are groan inducing. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Hanson | 3/26/2013

    " Not great literature but it does clear some things up. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kathleen Fischer | 1/28/2013

    " I never thought that I would feel sorry for Marcia Brady. And I still don't. But poor Maureen! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Smschade | 3/24/2012

    " I didn't finish this book. I got really turned off somewhere around her second or third abortion. I was happy to return it to the library. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rhonda | 7/31/2011

    " It was a little dry in places. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dede Herrick | 6/6/2011

    " We think we know so much about someone because they are "famous" and then you read a book like this. It was an interesting read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Deborah | 12/21/2010

    " While not well-written, for a Brady fanatic like myself, it's worthwhile. Maureen battles with her own demons as do we all, and it was particularly interesting for me to read about a seemingly 'perfect' girl on the outside struggling on the inside and learn how she dealt with it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carina | 5/9/2010

    " It was a really good book. Very interesting. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Melissa Johnson | 6/8/2009

    " Boring...same old same old fallen hollywood movie star book. "I was really famous, got into drugs, lost everything and now I'm writing a book." I'm trying to feel sorry for her but I just don't. "
