Book Review for MY DAYS HAPPY AND OTHERWISE by Marion Ross

Thank you to the wonderful people at Kensington Publishing for sending me an electronic copy of this book.

TITLE:                   My Days Happy and Otherwise

AUTHOR:              Marion Ross

GENRE:                 Memoir

RATING:                3 stars

I love reading memoirs written by celebrities.  The thing is....this book is kind of boring.  I think the best way to describe it is to call it vanilla.

Marion Ross has always been someone I enjoy watching on TV and what you see has Mrs. C. pretty well describes her book.  Perky, sweet, innocent and kind.  These are all wonderful qualities, except for the fact that when you are writing a memoir, I think you need to be honest and unless Ross' life has been exceptionally happy, this book is missing some huge chunks of reality.

Interestingly, she agreed to do the book only if each of her Happy Days co-stars would be included.  So, as part of her story, we get interviews with Ron Howard, Henry Winkler, etc describing Marion and how it was to work with her.  For those who bought this book to read all about Happy Days, you will be thrilled to hear that this is pretty much the focus of the book (although, don't expect any "dirt" as there isn't any).

Everyone is so kind and sweet and maybe I am jaded, but really?  

I didn't hate this book in the least, but I didn't love it either.
