Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

Few television stars of the 1970s were as high-profile as Melissa Anderson of Little House on the Prairie. Melissa's career began when she was only 9. Because she had asthma, her doctor recommended that she strengthen her lungs with activities such as ice skating and dance. A dance instructor, impressed by her talent, urged her parents to find an agent for her, and Melissa was soon appearing on television commercials for Mattel Toys and French's Mustard. Her big break came when her agent landed her an audition for “a pioneer western” that turned out to be Michael Landon's Little House on the Prairie.

From more than two hundred young actresses who auditioned for the roles of the sisters, she was selected to play Mary Ingalls. The only requirements were that she lose five pounds, and that she sign a seven-year contract. She agreed, and at age 11, became one of television's most beloved characters in one of the most watched shows in the history of television. It is still syndicated in practically every country in the world. Michael Landon selected her to play his first girlfriend in The Loneliest Runner, the 1976 television movie based on his life.

After her contract expired in 1981, Melissa chose to leave the series and continued acting in television shows, such as Alfred Hitchcock Presents, Murder, She Wrote, Aaron Spelling's Dark Mansions, An Innocent Love, First Affair, and in a recurring role as Edward Woodward's daughter in The Equalizer. Her feature films include Dead Men Don't Die and the horror classic, Happy Birthday to Me.

Melissa was the associate producer for Where Pigeons Go to Die (1990), one of the last two TV projects Michael Landon made before his death. She and her husband, Equalizer creator Michael Sloan, whom she met when she appeared on Alfred Hitchcock Presents, have two children.

AN EXCERPT
I spotted Mike across the stage and headed in his direction. My heart was racing, and my stomach was tied up in a huge knot.
“Um . . . Uh . . . Hey, Mike?”
He turned, saw me, and smiled. “Hey, darlin', how ya doing?”
“Uh, well, good . . . I guess.” I was now having trouble looking him in the eye.
“Something on your mind, Missy?”
And then, out it came. “Is it true? Are you really going to make me go blind next season?” I waited for what seemed forever for my answer.
“Yes, Missy, you will be going blind next season.”
My heart sank. I felt sick. The tears sprung up and out before I even had time to digest this news. I couldn't hold them back. I madly tried to think of something, anything else, so I would stop crying and not humiliate myself any further.
Just about the time I almost really lost it, Mike said, “Don't worry, Missy. It's going to be great. You'll see.” He gave me a big hug.
“R-r-really?” I sobbed. “You're not going to write me out?”
“Of course not,” he said. . . .“You have a great future ahead.”
I knew he wasn't just saying it to make me feel better; he wasn't that kind of guy. He went on to explain what would happen to Mary, and the show, and how he knew this would be a great opportunity for me. I trusted Mike and chose to accept the wonderful feeling of relief that had come over me.

There are too many chapters describing whole episodes on LHOP, that every fan would have watched many times anyway. That's one way to fill a book, but I expected more background information. I was disappointed and after reading it once, I resold it.

Das Buch hat mir nicht gut gefallen, da man zu wenig über die persönlichen Erfahrungen der Schauspielerin erfahren hat. Viele Folgen der Serie wurden Wort für Wort wieder gegeben.

Unsere kleine Farm war meine absolute Lieblingssendung. Ich wollte irgendwie mal wieder etwas neues erfahren, mich wieder damit befassen, und bin auf dieses Buch gestoßen. "Mary" war schon immer mein Lieblingscharakter in der Sendung (und nicht "Laura", Melissa Gilbert) und ich war hocherfreut, ein Buch von ihr zu finden! Ich lese gerne englisch und das Buch hat eine sehr einfache verständliche Sprache, es kann auch "ungeübt" gut gelesen werden. Ich hätte mir manchmal noch etwas mehr Einblicke gewünscht, so richtig abtauchen in Melissas Welt konnte ich nicht, aber es ist auf jeden Fall eine Bereicherung für jeden Fan der Serie. Ich muss dazu sagen, dass ich "Nellies" (Alison Arngrim) Buch danach gelesen habe, was ja Jahre vorher auf den Markt kam, und ziemlich enttäuscht war wie Melissa Anderson dort dargestellt wird. Ich konnte mir das von meiner "Mary" nicht vorstellen und in ihrem Buch gibt sie dazu keinerlei Hinweise. Interessant sind die Details über Melissas dargestellte Blindheit der Mary Ingalls und ebenso die Bilder in der Mitte des Buches. Auf jeden Fall lesenswert!

HASH(0x918bf744) von 5 Sternen Now I've read the 'other Melissa's' book...... 28. April 2010
Von Movie Maven - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
I've always been a fan of the show "Little House On The Prairie" and grew up watching the show. A few months back, I read Melissa Gilbert's book "Prairie Tale." In Ms. Gilbert's book, she briefly speaks about Melissa Sue Anderson, who played her older sister Mary on "Little House." But the few things Ms. Gilbert did say about Ms. Anderson, while not critical, were also not very fair and I hoped that Ms. Anderson would write her own book to provide her point of view about the show, Michael Landon, and Melissa Gilbert. I must say that I was a bit disappointed in Ms. Anderson's book as it seemed to be more of a re-telling of each "Little House" episode that she had more involvement with than any new or different revelations about herself or the show. And, in many of the chapters of her book, Ms. Anderson has exerpts from "Little House" scripts or has part of the chapter itself written in this script format. Ms. Anderson has, since her 1990 marriage to Michael Sloan, opted to distance herself from show business in order to devote herself full time to raising their two children. So, she's quite understandably protective of her privacy and the privacy of her family. That protection of privacy is evident as she wrote her book because Ms. Anderson does not go into how, as a child, she became interested in acting, about meeting her husband, there's not even much about her interaction with other "Little House" cast members including Michael Landon. While I'm not a fan of 'tell-all books', this one tells little or nothing. Also, while I very much like Ms. Anderson, while I was reading her book, I was scratching my head about WHY she decided to write this book in the first place.

There are a few interesting tidbits here in Anderson's book but for the most part this 200 plus page tome devotes, on average, 80% of each chapter to long plot descriptions of various Little House episodes. This info can all be found online, for free. A book to glance through... nothing more.

HASH(0x918bfbd0) von 5 Sternen If the title is "The Way I See It," no wonder she was blind!!!! 27. Juli 2010

For starters, I am a huge Little House fan. I love the good, the bad and everything in the middle! I read Melissa Gilbert's book and though I found it a bit self indulgent, at least she shared some fun Little House memories and trivia mixed with her own personal life.

Melissa Sue Anderson's book is a wreck! I can't believe someone published it (not to mention, edited it!). The entire book is a simple rehashing of her favorite episodes. Melissa--we have seen the show, that is why we are reading the book--we KNOW the storylines!

Not only does she tell us the plot of the episodes she is featured in, but she procedes to weave odd stories (which no one cares about) in a screen-play format! I'm not kidding

"Melissa takes control of the radio. Punches the FM button and turns the dial to 102.7.

MELISSA
There, KISS FM. Good.

RADIO ANNOUNCER
Hey, there. This is Rick Dees, and just in case you didn't know or couldn't guess...."

Then she writes out the lyrics to Debby Boone's "You Light Up My Life". This is horrifying and not at all literary!

Basically, you learn that she did not like the wide-brimmed hat she had to wear and that she could have been a superstar had she not had children.

Thank goodness I saved CONFESSIONS OF A PRAIRIE B*ITCH until after I read The Way I See It.

PLEASE DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THIS, if you write to me I will gladly send you my copy! Actually, I want to send it to Melissa Sue Anderson with some rewrites and an invoice for the crappy book. UGH!

Von Pacey1927 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

Really Melissa Andersen? Really? I will never forget you as Mary Ingalls on Little House, and YES, some of your starring episodes were amoung the best in the series history. But did you have to write an entire book about how wonderful you were? If you mentioned your Emmy nod (and later an Emmy win) once in this book, you mentioned it fifty times.

I read this book after reading Alison Angrims wondefully funny bio "Tales of a Prairie Bit**" and Melissa Gilbert's entertaining "Prairie Tale". Both women mentioned that it was hard to get to know Melissa Sue Anderson and they implied that she was snooty. My mind sort of found that interesting but really didn't believe it one hundred percent until I rad "The Way I See It".

I hoped this book would be like the other two, with benind the scenes antidotes about what it was like on the Little House set and maybe it would explain a little about Melissa Anderson as a young girl growing upDiRienzo on the set. Unfortunately this book is about 70% recaps of the tv episodes, sometimes word by word. As others have mentioned we probably wouldn't be reading this autobiography if we hadn't already seen these shows.

The book also disappoints as she doesn't really tell about her private life at all. There is nearly nothing mentioned about her parents or growing up. She mentions in great detail run ins she had with Frank Sinatra and Steven Speilberg. She name drops like mad but doesn't give us any kind of information that isn't general knowledge.

And yes, she repeats over and over how Little House top episodes always were the ones she was in. Only she was ever nominated from the Little House cast. She talks about 'how pretty' she was then or how 'cute' this picture of her is. I mean you really have to read it for yourself to believe this... She claims one minute to have loved Michael Landon and in the next she dogs him. That is about the only thing really to have an actual ring of truth to it...because I have heard time and again that he was almost like two different people.

Her relationships with ANYONE from the Little House cast aren't mentioned. Melissa Gilbert and her other co-stars are barely mentioned. She does seem to have some fond memories of a couple of boys she worked with and mentions some are still her friends today but we never get a feel for these relationships either. I get that she is a private person and I do really respect that. I also respect how much she seems to genuinely love her children...but she doesn't come across as much more than a snotty girl who became a stuck up woman.

Lesson learned for me: listen to the reviews! This book is horrible. Maybe because I read it last, after Melissa Gilberts and Allison Arngrims, both great, especially Arngrims, who is a truly talented, humorous writer. Melissa Gilberts is a hollywood tell-all, man, that girl knew, or came into contact with EVERYone! interesting! Confessions of a Prairie Bitch is mostly about Nellie's Little House experience, and a lot about Allisons personal life, extremely entertaining. Melissa Sue Andersons is truly like the reviews say, she LITERALLY goes and recites the episodes, it reads like, "Then I say, then Laura says....." that was where I said, she can't be serious!!! Is this the book?? She comes across, banal, cold, robotic and completely without wit. I was embarrassed for her the way she kept mentioning how great she was, how pretty everyone thought she was. Jeez!! I honestly think this was one of the worst, if not the worst book I have ever read. Don't do it!!
