A Prairie Tale review

Prairie Tale: A Memoir Prairie Tale: A Memoir by Melissa Gilbert

My rating: 2 of 5 stars
If I hadn't been such a big fan of Little House on the Prairie when I was young, I probably wouldn't have finished the book. But I did finish it. My biggest problem with the book was that there seemed to be a lot of name dropping. Sometimes to me names were used that didn't really matter if they were there or not. I know Melissa knew lots of famous people, but do we really need to know every person her parents or grandparents hung out with or every person who attended the same party that she did? Now I did find myself surprised at some of the actors (older) that tried to hit on her while she was underage considering Melissa was young looking for her age. I also don't think that the book really showed why Melissa felt that she had alcohol or substance problems. They seemed to be glanced over as yes I have a problem so this is what happened after.
