I love hearing William Shatner telling his own story but the producer needed to fix the audio. Bill kept lowering and raising his voice to where I had to keep my hand on the volume knob to constantly turn the sound up and down. He would almost whisper some of the parts. I understand it was for the drama factor but then you can't hear him. That part is very disappointing. But the writing and the book itself is wonderful Very much enjoyed the book.
Trying out this new audiobooks bizo. It's kinda cool.
I really like the concept of stars telling us what it was like growing up but a good part of this story was really depressing. Shatner divorced his first wife, second wife dies & he doesn't really delve into the third woman & their happiness together. I wouldn't listen to this again. The priceline stuff, the relationship he had with costars like Leonard Nimoy and the Star Trek info takes up most of the book... and ya can't forget the horses. Shatner's best friends.
I don't think there is a book like it.
I would listen to Shatner narrating something else, but not another autobiography.
If the book moved away from Star Trek, Priceline and his wives then maybe a follow up book would be worth it.
At times Shatner talks really fast, mumbles and speaks really low so it can be very difficult to keep up with him or understand what he is saying.
For me, Shatner will always only be Captain Kirk, and yet the rest of the book worked, very well actually. The most poignant chapter was his very heartfelt accounting of the tragedy of his third marriage, very sad but told in a way that others can benefit. I did not know Nimoy had that problem to beat as well. I'll never read this one again, but glad I did it once. By the way, I have found celebrities reading their own books generally problematic and not entertaining for reasons unknown. Shatner's narration however was superb!
Only read books, this was my first audiobook and it was fantastic. I chose the autobiography of William Shatner because I love the sound of his voice. I was not disappointed.
It was an autobiography of William Shatner. Mr. Shatner brought his wit and humor to this book and hearing rather than reading it brought it to life.
His entire life "up till now"
The Real William Shatner - No Holds Bar
I would hear his story in the quiet of night. Closing my eyes and listening, it was as if Mr. Shatner was there with me talking about his life.
I love audible to listen to my books while commuting in the SF Bay Area. It makes the time go by so fast and keeps me engrossed.
William Shatner lets you into his life in a way few celebrities do. His read makes it even more interesting giving you an insight to his storied life within the celebrity of his long career. His honesty and love for his career comes across in such a wonderful way that I haven't heard from other celebrities. A great Listen.
The narrator mumble so bad that that i missed half of the story ,
I have over 300 books and have many of shatner work this is not his best by far
William does well in other books and this is his life store but SPEAK UP
I dont think it would make it as a move
