PostSubject: Alison Arngrim's book   Fri Jun 18, 2010 8:44 pm

I was curious who bought it. If you did, have you read it? I received mine yesterday and I've already read it. Would read it again if I didn't have 70 or more books to review. I love her writing style--even more conversational than MSA's, similiar to what I've read in MG's book. She did use cuss words, but I didn't feel they were used for shock value, unlike MG's book where they just seemed out of place and awkward. Maybe I just assume Nellie Oleson would swear like a sailor. Laughing

Well, the title does give a bit of an indication that she might not be above using such language. batEyes

I haven't read it. And wow! You have a lot of books to review!

There's partially a reason behind the foul language that she mentions in the book. It's definitely her shtick.

I always have tons of books to review. At this point I have a lot of writing friends. They tell me I write wonderful reviews. There must be some truth to it because I'm turning people away so I can catch up.

I feel I'm behind of all of you in my "Little House" readings! To order these e books from USA's should ve too much expensive for me for devaluation. But I must not complain, since I have good friends here who could write down in this little place what those books are about. greenS HeeHee Alison's one must be great!!! She uses to be such a wacko!

I haven't read any of the Little House actors' tell-all books, either, Vanesa - so you aren't alone.

MSA's book really isn't a tell-all, not compared to the other two. She shares some stuff that might surprise you, but overall it's just her life during her years on LHOP.

Did anyone see A.A. on TV this morning talking about her book? I can't remember which morning show it was on, but it was one of the main tv networks.

I bought Alison's book this week and am about halfway through it. I hesitated to buy the book due to the title. I have never in my life uttered that word and never will but I decided to get the book anyway. I had a very difficult time reading MG's book because of the language in it, she was throwing out cuss words left right and centre where they weren't needed at all.
I met Alison in Keystone last Sept and asked her directly if her book would be as vulgar. She laughed and told me that there would be some in it but not to the degree that her friend had used them.
So, I went and bought the book and am enjoying it. The cuss words don't seem out of place, she writes as she talks.

I've ordered the book together with Melissa Andersons one. But it hasn't arrived yet. I hope I will have it soon.

How many pages does it have?

That's how I felt about it too. In Melissa's book they just seemed dropped for shock value. While Alison uses them, and the F-word even makes an appearance, they don't stand out as much.

[b]To be honest! IAm Not really Sure if i wanna buy this book or not. I seem to just read the books once. I did read MG's one and like i said before i was really shocked and what i read & what she said. I mean i learned stuff i did't know..Sometimes all the "Tell All books" Sound or seem the same to me. I know nobody's life perfect.I think the ladies are very bravey for sharing there stories tho.[b]

I'm sure the larger bookstores will carry them: Borders and Barnes and Noble. Alison had a signing in some of these so I'm sure you'll find them. Bookstores can also order books if they don't have them in stock.

I haven't been on the computer much lately, so I forgot about Alison's book coming out. What a pleasant surprise I had when at Border's today! My husband said I looked like a kid in a candy shop, but I started the book and wish I had time to read more tonight. I purposely skipped most of this thread to avoid spoilers but I'll be back on once I've read some more grinsmiley
