When I sat down to read Talking As Fast As I Can, I felt like I was sitting down talking to Lauren Graham. Her personality shines through and you feel like you're laughing along with her. She writes very much like how she speaks, and that familiarity wraps around the reader. Graham discusses her upbringing, being raised by her Father, her college years and her struggles with trying to "make it" in show business. She offers her advice and encourages readers to follow their dreams. She comes across as a very positive person, and someone who truly loves what she does.
This collection of essays was published at the same time as the revival was released on Netflix. I watched A Year In The Life and had some hit and misses with the show. Reading these essays, I had a new appreciation for the revival, and it made me want to watch it again. Gilmore Girls was a huge part of my life, and will always be a favorite show of mine. I really enjoyed the insight that Graham brought to the book.
This collection of essays reads very quickly and if you're a Lauren Graham fan or Gilmore Girl/Parenthood fan you will want to read this. I really appreciated the essays that Graham wrote, and I will continue to read any new releases that she put out there for us to read.
