If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?
I was very disappointed as this book is about Diane Keaton's mothers slide into dementia. This is a sad event that many families suffer. However I bought the book wanting to read about Diane Keaton as she is an interesting personality and actress. She says very little about her own life and only a few lines about her relationships other than with her two children.
What could Diane Keaton have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?
Written a memoir with more about her acting life and her relationships.
Which character – as performed by Diane Keaton – was your favourite?
I didn't have one
You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?
Yes some refreshing honesty but overall quite a gloomy story of her mothers depressive illness and dementia and death
Any additional comments?
Most people will have bought this book expecting to learn more about Diane Keaton. I know everything about her mother's life but nothing about her own life.
Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
Yes, I liked finding out about Diane's family especially her mother and her struggle with the forgetting disease.
Would you be willing to try another book from Diane Keaton? Why or why not?
Sure, big fan.
What aspect of Diane Keaton’s performance might you have changed?
Nothing really I don't think.
Did Then Again inspire you to do anything?
To keep joirnaling and maybe attempt colllaging
Such a heartfelt biography I have never previously had the pleasure to listen to. Diane Keaton comes across as a beautiful caring soul, as does her mother, who suffered from depression (as well as many of life's frustration as a woman of her era. ) Diane's story is interwoven with her mother's story from both of their many journals. This is not a name dropping type of book, but a book of much introspection, both on Diane's part, and her mother's own struggles to find her "voice" Diane Keaton doesn't hold herself back, and one realizes, that however famous one is, or not, life's struggles, heartaches, and passions remain the same for all.

I really looked forward to listening to Diane's book. She is a wonderful actress and I've really enjoyed watching her in films, but her writing and reading did not inspire me to stay with the audio book.
