    " A *3.5* I was a bit reluctant to read this book. I tend to shy away from "tell all" memoirs.Sachi Parker is the daughter of Shirley MacLaine. this is Sachi's memoir of her life growing up with a famous Movie star for a mother. I imagine her whole life she must have been told " how lucky she is to have a movie star for a mother' This memoir of Sachi's life and her lonely life as a child, she writes that she was sent to Japan at two years old to live with her father.Steve Parker. and only saw her mother summers, and for very short stints. Her father called his daughter "idiot" and Sachi had to deal with a woman named Miki her father's mistress who treated her badly. she spent her teen years at boarding school and during one summer break, no one came to pick her up and she had to depend on strangers to help her for five weeks. according to Sachi her mother Shirley Maclaine put her career first and saw little of her daughter growing up.She said that she discovered her father was a con artist bilking Shirley M.out of millions of dollars by convincing Maclaine with "out of this world" claims. Her adult years trying to survive on her own had it's difficulties. she took jobs as waitresses and a stewardess.both parents could be pretty selfish according to this memoir. Sachi does write good things about her mother such as rescuing her from a bad relationship and some fun times they had together.She also writes of many betrayals her mother {supposedly} did to her such as blocking Sachi from getting roles in movies.One account she gives that i find kind of sketchy is her mother encouraged her to audition for a role in a movie along side her mother. the role is supposed to be a woman of 26.Sachi was 50 at the time.{come on no 50 year old can pass for 26}Sachi was convinced she had the role but found out later her mother blocked her from getting the role. according to Sachi her mother was protective of her own career. I read this book with the belief that this is Sachi Parkers view of her life. Guess we all have our own memoir and those who know you, may not agree. or have their own version of what happened. I read that Shirley Maclaine said she would give this book a "0" star and she was heartbroken and called this book "fiction" In all fairness to Sachi Parker. she writes well. I got the feeling when I read this book that Sachi comes off as the victim each time. never taking blame for herself. I would be curious to see what Shirley Maclaine would say in defense for herself. I have read a few of Ms. Maclaines books. she can be quite eccentric in her beliefs. this was pretty good for the most part. I just keep in mind that this is Sachi Parkers. recall of her life. "

    " I enjoyed reading about Sachi's crazy childhood. I was a huge fan of Shirley MacLaine before reading this, and I'm sorry to say that this has tainted my opinion of her a bit. I will continue to admire her as a female dancer/fab actress. "

    " Sad story about a sad childhood. "

    " A heartbreaking story. After reading this, I doubt if I will ever see a Shirley MacLaine movie again. Talk about child abuse! "

    " Very good read. This is NOT a "Mommy Dearest" book but makes one wonder how Sachi Parker managed to become the woman she is with the life she lived basically without her Mom or her Dad. "

    " I found this tale as fantastical as Shirley MacLaine's books on UFOs and reincarnation. "

    " At first I thought the writing was a little juvenile, but I either got use to it or the writer got a clue. I found the story of interest and it just adds to the fact that the people we think are so great just because they are famous and just like any one else, only stranger. "

    " Sachi Parker had 2 very dysfunctional "parents!" "

    " Even when I put this book down I spent a lot of time thinking about it. Sachi had a very sad childhood. As for her paternity... she does not look at all like Steve Parker and I think she may be right about Yves Montand. "

    " I really looked forward reading about thing's from Sachi's perspective. "

    " Always knew Shirley MacLaine was a little off, but didn't realize she was total batshit crazy! Interesting book and kudos to her daughter for turning out better than both her nutso parents. "

    " Some crazy stories (absent mother, cloning...?) but I found the author very difficult to like, as written. An interesting book if you have any perception of her famous mother, but there doesn't seem to be any real resolution. In the end feels like a money grab by a Hollywood kid. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amy | 4/5/2009

    " Although not quite in Joan Crawford's league, Shirley MacClaine comes across as a self-absorbed person who left her daughter to be raised in the care of others. Interesting and quick read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kimberly Mcglohon | 12/1/2008

    " This autobiography makes me happy to have an ordinary life! It's unbelievable the stories she has to tell. When you think it couldn't get more bizarre, just turn the page! "
