Rayman’s Book of the Month, “I, Rhoda” [REVIEW]

(Photo Kool 1017)

Over the weekend, I read “I, Rhoda” the life story of Valerie Harper. I didn’t really no what to expect when I got the book, but being a huge fan of the days when Valerie Harper was on “The Mary Tyler Moore” show and her spin off “Rhoda”, I had to give it a go.

I should first point out the book gives a very detailed look into her early life, her struggles landing a full time job, the countless friends she made while working her way up and so forth. The same details are lacking however when it come to her role on the Mary Tyler Moore Show, and Rhoda as well. I for one, would have liked to see more details about those two shows, rather than concentrating heavily on her early life.

The book also is greatly detailed with her life after the Rhoda series. The problems she went through, how she dealt with them, her many awards, and her ups and downs. Especially interesting to me was her earlier bout with lung cancer. She made no mention of the diagnosis of terminal brain cancer however.

All in all I’m glad I read the book. It did give me some insight into the life of Valerie Harper, although it left me wanting for more personal and professional details. I must admit however, once I started the book, I could not put it down as it flows nicely, and is an easy read. If you are a die hard fan of Rhoda Morgenstern, this book belongs on your bookshelf. It’s a keeper.
