Ghostbuster's Daughter: Life with My Dad, Harold Ramis Reviews

  • Diana Brown

    Violet Stiel loves her Daddy. She knows many of us love him too. And now that he has died, she'd like two things:

    1. To keep him as alive as she can through memories and affectionate tribute

    2. For you to know the man she knew, and love him as she did.

    This book is not a biography of Ramis or his daughter. Rather, it's a memoir - a glimpse into each of their lives, following the thread of where those two lives intersected. It is the story of Violet's rare relationship with an uncommon man, and how

    Couldn’t put it down and read the entire book in one day. Here was my adolescence through adulthood juxtaposed with one of my favorite actors and screenwriters life story. The brave memoir of Harold Ramis’ daughter is honest, eye-opening, and beautifully told with candid photos and countless interesting anecdotes. Ramis is someone I would love to have as a girlfriend, next door neighbor or fellow colleague. Who would have had such a rare glimpse into a Hollywood success story? Not only did she l ...more

    I absolutely loved this book. Egon was my favorite Ghostbuster. It was great to read about some of his work outside of acting. I read this on the heels of Caddyshack. It was also great to see the relationships of his co-workers through his daughter. They truly had an inspirational bond. I highly recommended this book!

    I will say it is in fact, impossible to put down. Finished it in a single day. Harold Ramis was a big part of my childhood, mainly through GHostbusters 1 and 2 playing repeatedly and overtime Stripes, Caddyshack, Vacation and Animal house. He very well a major part of what my comedy through his writing and occasionally acting. His daughter is equally as cool as him, maybe more so. This book was a joy to read. Violet Ramis Stiel wrote a loving book about her and her dad. It is all not airs and gr ...more
