Avid reader turned listener.
Lowe's deep self-reflection and honesty with his readers
Lowe's experiences in auditions and on set, in addition to stories about his upbringing in Ohio and California.
His voice, impersonations of others and in general his candor.
I did laugh at a few points. It wasn't particularly emotion-rendering but it was very good.
mom of 3 boys!
I was able to revisit the movies and the idols I enjoyed in my teens! Being just 4 years younger than Rob I had a great time listening to his story. I plan to buy a copy for my dear friend from my teen years! I wish I had known that my idols were just as insecure and uncertain about life as I was at that age. That common experience is reassuring even to learn about years later.
I really liked this autobiography. Lowe conveys a wit and honesty that I find rare in Hollywood celebrities - a great listen all around.
Part time artist - Like to listen to audiobooks when I am working and creating.
I don't like writing. I like reading and listening so for me to make an effort to write a review is a big deal. I thought it was really well written & performed. Gave you the feeling he was talking to you as if you were a close friend. I would recommend to anyone whether they are a fan of Rob Lowe or not.
Yes. It has a wide appeal
There were several stories throughout the book as the title alludes. Some are funny, some shocking and many sincerely touching. Having the author read it made it even better
The book made me laugh out loud several times
A great listen. Rob Lowe keeps you laughing and then has you thinking deeply about life right after. He has lots of great stories about his life in general, classic movies, celebrities, old Hollywood, new Hollywood and its well put together in a chronological tale about him coming to figure out who he is and what he really wants.
The performance is fantastic, I wish Rob Lowe could read all of my audiobooks to me. He does perfect impressions of famous celebrities, even a Walken! He always puts a great distinctive voice to every character in the book. The narration is smooth & comforting.
An insider's look inside Hollywood seen through the eyes of sensitive and witty Rob Lowe. He's charming and funny. A very nice book to listen to!
I never knew anything about Rob Lowe, so I was not sure if i should even spend the time and money on it..Glad I did,!!! Great story, I never once had a second thought that i should of not purchased it. Well written and well told and very much kept me engaged in the entire story. I hope he writes again, for he has a talent not many of us have.
The fact that Rob Lowe narrates this book really makes it extra enjoyable.
It feels like Rob is actually sitting down and telling you about himself. It gives a good complete life story without bragging.
When Cheryl breaks up with him, and he realizes he has hit rock bottom. I got a little choked up.
I really enjoyed this book. I loved how Rob impersonates voices of the other characters--he is really good at this. I also see Rob in a whole new light.
