    1. This is truly one of the funniest books I have ever read Like one of the top TWO funniest books I ve ever read Bill Bryson s NEITHER HERE NOR THERE is up there Quinn s essays on life, love, childhood stardom, and family pets are nothing short of hilarious I am dying for her to come out with a new one Meanwhile I follow her blog, qcreport


    2. I remember a little bit about Quinn Cummings career as a youth actor her Academy Award nominated role in the movie The Goodbye Girl, her joining the cast of the TV drama Family but she s been kind of a whatever happened to for quite a long time She stepped out of the limelight about 20 years ago, and grew up to be an entrepreneur, a mom and a blogger who has achieved the blogger s dream a book I didn t know about her blog until I heard about the book, but it s a long established one with archive [...]



    3. Quinn s book qcreport 2008 11 Have to admit that I m biased I ve been reading the QC Report for years, and she never fails to make me snort with laughter or tear up, often in the same post So when I heard about the book, I was both excited and leery, since I ve been disappointed by other blog to book experiments before see Quiet, Please for one painful example.But Quinn rules Even stories that were familiar to me from the blog were still compelling and delightful to read.She wisely front loads a [...]


    4. Tired jokes about her kid eventually needing therapy boring tales about how she s so helpful, yet nobody is asking her for help and it always seems to end badly essays about the many expensive activities her child is part of yawn Plus, she uses the same uncommon words within a single paragraph she needs a better proofreader , making for a read that is anything but seamless On a personal note, her next to last story involving the stray dog left an incredibly sour taste in my mouth Honestly, I did [...]


    5. I love Quinn Cummings writing style She s snarky and funny and sarcastic Her metaphors and use of language are beautiful I hope to publish something this good someday And I m not just saying that because I interviewed her for my blog nannygoatsinpanties 20 I really enjoyed this memoir In case you don t already know, Quinn Cummings played the daughter, Lucy McFadden, in The Goodbye Girl and was nominated for an Academy Award So we get to read about Los Angeles, how she s trying to be a good Mom, [...]


    6. I picked this up on a whim at the airport and ended up reading it twice It s a pleasurable, easy read that will keep you laughing out loud however, there s a depth to her writing that s not often found in other similar books Writers who churn out collections of witty recounts of uncomfortable situations are a dime a dozen right now But Cummings was able to weave together stories from her life to create an interesting, touching and humorous account that leaves the reader longing to read .


    7. Funny and touching essays from the Little Girl from The Goodbye Girl grin She s left that life behind though and the stories are very relatable Hey I m clumsy, too Hey I like to rescue animals, too


    8. I REALLY loved this book Quinn s writing is hysterically funny, as well as touching Her life is just everything you would never expect from a former child star which is quite refreshing A great book for any Mom to read


    9. This was a great book It s been a long time since I laughed out loud while reading a book Each chapter is a delightful experience Hope you enjoy it as much I did Ms Cummings knows how to write and to entertain.



    10. This book was O.K I think Quinn Cummings has the makings to be a very witty author I look forward to future books as she polishes her writing I do want to check out her blog.



    11. I ve been reading the author s blog since it began The book is just as good one of the few writers who regularly makes me laugh out loud.




    12. Hilarious and frank, Quinn Cummings does a fantastic job of recounting tales from her life in a manner that make the reader laugh out loud She owns up to her own quirkiness and laughs at herself I thoroughly enjoyed this one and was pleasantly surprised.



    13. another book from the school of goofy funny memoirs think laurie notaro, then refresh your memory of my distaste for her shtick she s like a modern day female dave barry not too funny cummings s writing is a touch sophisticated than notaro s, but not by a lot i mean, i guess i knew what i was getting into it s not like anything about the book tricked me into thinking i was picking up great literature or pithy insight on a david sedaris type level i wanted something fun light hearted that might [...]


    14. I grew up watching Quinn Cummings in films and was always interested in her I loved The Goodbye Girl and have probably seen it over a dozen times It was so like my life, my single mom always falling for losers and me the smart ass cynical kid so much like Quinn Cummings character So, because of this I was excited to read her collection of humorous essays based on her life.I m glad I did It was mostly enjoyable and she is very funny and would often say things that were unexpected and I liked that [...]


    15. Quinn Cummings is a former child star living a quiet life in Los Angeles Mother to a pre teen daughter, lover of pets, and witness to the crazy lifestyles of La La Land, Quinn shares humorous stories about her experience as a former child actor, her family life, and the unexpected surprises her pets bring her If you could tell from my lackluster description of the book above, I wasn t very jazzed about this memoir I read a lot of books like this, and to be honest, they all sort of blend together [...]


    16. Raising a child and a significant other is not easy Raising a child and a significant other while under the influence of being a former child star is still not easy, only funnier Braving the actor infested streets of LA, a mouth that has a mind of its own, painful clumsiness, and summer camp mania, this Golden Globe nominee triumphs over her awkward and lovely life with wisdom and humor.Quinn Cummings 15 minutes of fame are her childhood roles in the movie The Goodbye Girl 1977 and the TV show F [...]


    17. In retrospect, rather reminds me of the way Erma Bombeck writes, but with a contemporary flair I am, after all, still in the under 30 crowd, so Bombeck is still a bit dated for me I might even go so far as to compare her writing to David Sedaris, which is to say, it s a nice diversion, but nothing to write home about EDIT I see Erma Bombeck is mentioned in the description here on Ha The writing was fairly funny, but it ultimately wasn t enough to keep me reading I read about half the book in on [...]


    18. This book is 3 1 2 starsokay, maybe like 3 3 4 It was a recommendation from based on something else I had read and I bought it because someone likened Quinn Cummings to Erma Bombeck I find Erma Bombeck hilarious and if that makes me a nerd than I embrace my inner nerd Apparently Quinn Cummings is a former child actor from the 70 s and I had never heard of her, which makes it strange that I would be interested in her life in the first place Again, I was wanting some Bombeck like humor At first [...]


    19. Okay, memory quiz, for those of you willing to admit you go back this far Remember the character of the little girl in the 80 s TV series Family Or, how about the character of the daughter in The Goodbye Girl Both of those were played by Quinn Cummings, who, as it turns out, has grown up to be a very entertaining writer and blogger This book was just chance pickup at the Friends of the Library book store, but it has been a fun companion in the car, perfect for reading for fifteen minutes at a ti [...]


    20. Given my recent grumbling about everyone with a blog does NOT deserve a book contract, you might be surprised to see I m reading this I will totally admit that I would have avoided this book without a second thought if it hadn t been written by Quinn Cummings, who was the raspy voiced, wise beyond her years kid in The Goodbye Girl, a movie I love.The good news is that this book is a collection of humorous essays fleshed out from blog posts, I m guessing than yet another perils of motherhood mem [...]


    21. I rather liked this The author, apparently, was a child actor but I don t know what she acted in and never bothered to Google her to find out and it doesn t come up often in the book It is pretty much a collection of amusing stories from a pretty average life, which is something I have found I usually enjoy quite a lot She falls back on some stories about her daughter which normally I m not interested in, but she is an amusing author and I found myself entertained, almost in spite of myself The [...]


    22. I always loved Quinn Cummings growing up We were the same age and I admired her precociousness in every role she played Well, Quinn is still adorably precocious and now I can admire the way she is raising her daughter she never got into drugs, alcohol and rehab at a young age instead, she was working an AIDS hotline when she was 18 She is also hysterically funnyevery page had me laughing out loud.well, except for a chapter towards the end, that had me crying But no spoilersI highly recommend thi [...]


    23. I m not sure why this book just didn t do it for me The writing was surprisingly smart and funny, and the topic of her life as a former child star living in Hollywood was fairly interesting I guess, after 50 pages or so, I just wanted to say, Okay, I get it You are the exception You are smart and funny, and you survived Hollywood, unlike all your friends and acquaintances Can I go now I read enough pithy blogs every day When I read a book, I want it to be different from the off the cuff stuff I [...]


    24. I loved her on the show, Familye was spunky and funny and just a bit twisted She grew up to be even funnier, spunkier and than a bit twisted I LOVE that in a person Love this book PS the date above is for a re read loved the book the first time, loved it the second I don t often re read books, but, when I do, it s because they were extremely entertaining I hope Quinn has a second and third and fourth and books in her, because, I like her style You will too, if you like funny, snarky and just [...]
