Filled with wit, wisdom, and backstage insight, A Little Bit Wicked is an essential read for Kristin's legions of fans and an uplifting story for anyone seeking to follow their dreams - over the rainbow and beyond.
I'm a huge fan of Kristin Chenoweth. I bought the hardback book for the wife to read and looked forward to listening to the audio book version. As soon as I could, I downloaded it here . . . Only to discover it was condensed into a single 7-hour track?! Sure, I can fit it onto my iPod, but how's a guy supposed to read it in chunks? Am I really expected to listen to it in a single, seven hour sitting? Or am I supposed to keep track of what time marks I finish each "reading" at? C'mon, Apple (or whoever). Give us some individual tracks.
My main reason for reading this book was because I'm a big fan of Kristin Chenoweth and I would like to travel down the same career path, so I knew I would like the book since that is where my interests lie, but I never imagined it would be so funny, heartfelt, and memorable. I found myself laughing out loud in the middle of class, because it was so humorous. I also enjoyed it, because Kristin makes it very easy to identify with her and you really feel that connection. Even if you are not an aspiring Broadway star, or singer, or even if you don't even know who Kristin Chenoweth is, you will still enjoy this entertaining and real gem of a book.
hilarious, honest, and faith-filled
i was first introduced to kristin and her immense talent when my dad brought home the remake of "the music man". although i wasn't impressed with the remake as a whole, i became a fan of hers the moment she opened her mouth and sang "goodnight, my someone". i've been an avid fan ever since, and happily bought this at barnes and noble. i couldn't put it down! kristin is very honest about her life, the issues she's had balancing faith and fame, and certainly is not afraid to laugh at herself. this book is filled with hilarious backstage stories from plays like "wicked" and "the apple tree", advice for young actors, and even a few easy dessert recipes! it's a great read and offers insight into some of the controversy that has surrounded her. by the time i finished this, i had a brand new respect for this talented lady. buy it!
