I would have really enjoyed the book whether I read it or listened to it, but choosing the audio book version was definitely a bonus because Rob Lowe does such a good job impersonating the voices of so many famous people that you know who his anecdotes are about even before he says their names.
My first audiobook and what a way to start. You see the evolution from public image we all thought we knew to pretty cool person so clearly. A great book to have your adolescent kids read/listen to and enjoy as mine did.
Suprisingly, I found this story of a boy becoming a good man, quite charming. Rob Lowe narrating his life's journey was humble, real & humorous. In the end it was we were friends and he was telling stories to me. I look forward to "catching up" again in the future when he writes again.
I really enjoyed this book. Yes, Rob Lowe is ridiculously good looking. But suprise! He's a real person too. A person who has had struggles and pain in his life and has come through it all to find success in a very difficult and competitive business. I especially enjoyed that he narrated it.
Some people chuckle when I tell them how much I enjoyed this book....as if Rob Lowe is someone we shouldn't take seriously. I don't get it. The guy experienced more by his 21st birthday than most experience in a lifetime. The stories are moving, funny and fascinating especially for an actor like myself. The high point? The way Mr. Lowe goes into tremendous detail to explain his Outsiders experience...
Awesome story, interesting stuff about his life I would have never guessed. Couldn't wait to listen to more every time I got in my car. Rob is an excellent narrator AND does amazing impressions! Loved it.
I have new respect for Rob Lowe. I'm this book he proves to be a intelligent writer and story teller who has grown deeper with all of his life's ups and downs. Glad I listened!
