HOW could anyone not fall in love, feel love, or wish wish wish they had the love of Carole King? This memoir is an incredible body of art. The warmth of her writing comes thru with every story she shares here. Perhaps a more appropriate title would have been "A Beautiful Woman." Maybe even "A Phenomenal Woman." What a classy lady, and what a wonderful book. Thank you, Ms. King

Could Not Put It Down

on 5/11/2012

I was expecting the worst, especially as Carole did not employ a ghostwriter. I read "Girls Like Us" and figured that Carole would never be as truthful and forthcoming as that account of her life was. Boy, was I wrong. Carole is an amazing and truthful writer. Carole was quite elaborate about her marriages and her highs and lows. I was particularly impressed with her technical elaboration regarding the recording of "Tapestry". It was like "Recording 101". This great book filled in so many blanks of this lifelong fan.
