Talking as Fast as I Can: From Gilmore Girls to Gilmore Girls, and Everything in Between

3.4
In Watchin as Fast as I Could, 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 ctress, and, years later, sitting in her trailer on the Parenthood set and asking herself, “ Did you, um, make it? ” She opens up about the complexitie of being single in Hollywood ( “ Strangers were worried about me; that ’ s how long I was single! ”), the time she was invited to audition her butt for a role, and her experience being a judge on Project Runway ( “ It ’ s like I ad a fashion-induced blackout ”).

In “ What It Was Like, Part One, ” Graham sits down for an epic Gilmore Girls marathon and reflects on being cast as the fast-talking Lorelai Gilmore. The boo “ What It Was Like, Part Two ” reveals how it felt to pick up the role again nine years later, and what doing so has meant to her.

Some more things you will learn about Lauren: She once hope 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 third time after three hours of hair, makeup, and styling, you ’ ve already set the bar oo high ”), and she ’ s a card-carrying REI shopper ( “ My bungee cords now earn points! ”).

Including photos and excerpts from the diary Graham kept during the filming of the recent Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life, a ook 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.

In true Rory Gilmore style, I am oing to review his book as a pros and cons list.

I appreciated the addition of the phone conversation with her mother in “ Fast Forward ”- something I had alway come across before in any of the essay I have read.

• Old Lady Jackson, period – nothing else to add here, I eed more of her! • Gilmore Girls: I like the way “ What It Was Like, Part One ” was set out.

For those of you who haven ’ t read it, she expresses her opinion about each season in terms of the setting, fashion/hair and what she loved.

I have decided that I am lookin to live up to my name by leaving a quote that sticks out for me in every one of the books that I read.

Lauren is so successful in many hemispheres of her life, but all of the ssays she wrote were just plain vapid, specifically her chapters about LA diets and dating.

If you liked Gilmore Girls or Parenthood, consider picking this up on audiobook like I did.

* sniff, sniff, wail* Recently I made what may have been a questionable parenting decision and starting watching Gilmore Girls on Netflix with my grandfather.

I love Lauren Graham in both Gilmore Girls and Parenthood but unfortunately, I found his audio just okay.

I still iked the show “ Parenthood ”- much better than “ The Gilmore Show ”, where Lauren Graham was part of the ensemble cast.

Lauren Graham speaks ‘ consistently ’ soooo fast during the entire audiobook- it becomes draining.

Unless a person is a die-hard Lauren Graham fan — and she an do no wrong in your eyes- then I wouldn ’ t o out of my way to read or listen to his ook.

Yes I am being biased because I love Lauren Graham and Gilmore Girls ( which is more than just a show to me, it 's a religion, a ay of life -- I think thi sounds crazy but I 've been too obsessed for too long, its unhealthy ... just ignore me).

Lauren basically is real-life Lorelai Gilmore.
