Talking as Fast as I Can (with many cups of coffee)
I spent my entire teens feeding my cafe addiction and watching the episodes of Gilmore Girls. I grew up inspired by the Gilmore girls, who faced the dilemmas of life with humor, style, books and lots of coffee. I could not be more excited when I heard of the revival debut in last November and the launch of “Talking as Fast as I Can: from Gilmore Girls to Gilmore Girls (and everything in between)” by Lauren Graham, famous actress for playing the role of Lorelai Gilmore in the series.
Even with all this excitement, I was a bit suspicious before reading the book. There is always this fear of knowing your idol and of being disappointed. But when I started the first few pages, I knew this was not going to happen. The book compiles several stories from the life of the actress. Lauren talks about her early career, the difficulties in love and how it was to play the role of Lorelai Gilmore and then return to the series.
I’m sure you’ll laugh along with Lauren when she tells you the story of when she was a butt model. You will learn a lot from the actress, for example, when you know the infallible method of not procrastinating if you’re writing a book (also a very good technique for other types of projects), and you will be sure of the importance of having principles in career development. Finally, you will also agree and ask yourself the same thing that Lauren talked to Amy Palladino (creator of the Gilmore Girls series) about the last episode of the revival: do those last four words really indicate an ending? Or does it look like an open ending?
And after you finish the book, you will feel like Lauren was a great friend. And you’ll be eager to read her first book, the “Someday, Someday, Maybe” novel. At least it was how I felt.
