I always thought Diane Keaton must have an incredibly interesting life story...and she does...but the young starving actress in NYC (with an eating disorder) is relatively cliched. I found myself getting bored with her early years. The idea of interweaving her and her mother's life together and telling the stories side by side is also not well executed. It is not until the story of her later years, on the set of Something's Gotta Give, and when she adopts her children, that I began to get really into her story. Her investment decision to buy, restore and sell houses is also fun to read about but it is clear that Keaton doesn't really come into her own until her much later years. She sounds like a lovely woman but this book is surprisingly uninteresting for someone who seems to have led such a full life.
