    I read this book in the Library, and it was wonderful! It told about all the shows she did, her movies, her husband, Desi, her children, Lucie and Desi Jr., and told about her life. It was a sensational book, and ment a lot to me. I love Lucille Ball! In Fact, If I could, I would make it be that ciggarettes weren’t invented, because if they hadn’t been, maybe she would still be alive!. This book is the basic “learn all in a few minutes” book! It’s very short, and sweet!

    THE REAL LUCY: Her Life, Love, and Legacy, August 5, 2000

    This review is from: Lucille Ball: Pioneer of Comedy (Paperback)

    On screen, Lucy Ball was one of the funniest women America had ever seen–but off screen, life wasn’t always a comedy. This biography is enough to tell you that, and tells about some perticularlly important I LOVE LUCY episodes. But the text is dry and not lively and detialed. While it is a nice book to read for beginning readers who love the Recardos, it is not detialed, and focuses more on Lucy’s acting career than her personal life. If you want a good biography, try “Love Lucy”, Lucy’s autobiography. While it was written a few years before her death, it won’t have close-to-end-of-life information, but it will be a whole lot more detialed.

    I joined the I Love Lucy Fan Club and this book was recommended. I liked how this book was short, and easy to read, but had a lot of good information about Lucys life. Her life wasn’t always easy, but she made the best of it and really made a splash on television.I admire her a lot and I liked this book.
