I've always appreciated Lauren Graham's sense of humour as it's very similar to my own. She's the master of a long, ramble-y story that ends up being so funny you forget you were even waiting for the punch-line at the end; but then, when she get's to it, you laugh even harder. More than once I found myself laughing as I went back to re-read something on the previous page because the sly comment she'd snuck in had only just registered in my brain.
I think this book is entertaining regardless of whether or not you're a big fan of Gilmore Girls, but being a fan definitely made it even more enjoyable. I loved revisiting the original series from her perspective and reading her thoughts on returning to Lorelai so many years later. It was interesting to read that a lot of the simple moments that had me choked up watching "A Year in the Life" were also moments she found difficult to get through without becoming too emotional; in a way, it makes the return to Stars Hollow even more special.
I've always enjoyed memoirs that read like a conversation; they feel very personal...and I find it impossible to put them down once I start reading. I inhaled this book, was completely absorbed, and wished it was about 200 pages longer when I reached the end.
