Love the book and learned a few things that I did not know. Also made me miss GL a lot have to go watch some for all the soap fans especially the Reva Shayne fans get the book. Best read.
Packed With Photos??
The description says this book is "packed with photos". Maybe the print edition is, but this version has none. And I wish I'd known because I never would have downloaded it.
As far as the book goes, it's a decent look at Zimmer's years on Guiding Light,but I think she's less than honest and a little confused a few times. She writes as if she was working with Ron Raines in storylines before Raines joined the show as Alan Spaulding. Daniel Pilon played him during some of the stories she mentions. She is less than forthcoming about the cause of Chris Bernau's death.
