    1. This book is a giant omnibus of Dolly Parton interviews from the beginning when she started off with Porter Wagoner all the way to present. The publications she did interviews with range from big time magazines to small indie 'zines. There are moments of repetition over the various interviews where Dolly repeats the same rhetoric over and over, such as the story of her upbringing. But overall this is a highly entertaining collection of interviews, because we get Dolly in all her wit and vulnerab [...]

    2. This book was interesting to a point. It's just a collection of interviews with Dolly in print. The 1979 Playboy interview was quite interesting. But after a while, 300+ pages of just interviews just got to be too much to want to keep slogging through.

    3. This book was ok, a lot of information on Dolly Parton from past interviews, but it got to be very repetitive as the same material was used over and over. Since I had read several of the magazine articles over the years it was like I had already read the book.

    4. I've always loved Dolly. She's smart and sassy and very successful, and she truly uses her money to help others. I picked this up on a whim in my local public library, and I am glad I did. Oh, there is repetition - of course! - after all, facts are facts.

    5. Dolly is an amazing person. The compiled interviews revealed her constant evolution to a mature woman. I respect her so much as a person for it. I recommend this book for Dolly fans.

    7. Dolly Parton goes by many names Dolly Rebecca, The Book Lady, The Iron Butterfly. This book of interviews shows more of her mystique and appeal. She is one smart cookie!

    8. At first I really liked reading the interviews, but very soon it was SO repetitive, I can only hear that she is the 4th of 12 children and met Carl on her first day in Nashville, so many times! This would be a good book if you had to do research on her for some reason, but by the 4th interview I was skimming the rest of the book.Read for Beatles Challenge: “Kansas City/Hey, Hey, Hey, Hey” - Read a book with a repeat word in the title
