I feel truly fortunate for being allowed to hear the stories of Rob Lowe. I went into listening to his biography with some trepidation. I didn't know much of his past, hadn't watched much of him in The West Wing. In fact I know him best from his times on Parks and Recreation. "Ann Perkins!"
Regardless Rob chronicles his life in such a way that you feel your sitting in a room just having a conversation. It doesn't hurt that Rob has some incredible stories to tell from his times with the young Sheen's to his time visiting the President in the oval office.
I immensely enjoyed my time listening to Stories I Only Tell My Friends and think anyone with any interest in Rob or the trials and tribulations of actors will enjoy this as well.
I started paying attention to Lowe during Parks and Rec. A little late for a star that has been known for decades.
I was drawn into this book. I found his voice soothing and story enticing. His narration rings true. I believe him. No regrets buying it.
His struggles are easy to relate to and a good lesson in chasing your dreams.
Because I was reluctant to read yet another celebrity biography, I was reluctant to get this book.
I read all the reviews and decided to give it a go.
I wasn't disappointed.
It gives a new face to Rob Lowe. I would definitely recommend.
The stories that he tells kept me quite entertained; the fact that he narrates them himself makes this audiobook really stand out!
The Art of Racing in the Rain
Excellent audiobook! Thoroughly enjoyed it! Definitely recommend it to others!
My husband and I listened to this book together... we laughed, we felt some sadness and remembered the people and the stories. Rob... not only are you a great actor, you are a fabulous writer and an entertaining narrator!
The honesty... Rob's opinion, I have a lot of respect for him.
Hearing his voice was exciting, reading his own story was fabulous. In addition, he immitated some of the characters very well... enjoyable!
I love the title!
As someone who grew up with Rob Lowe and watched his career with interest, I found this book very well written and informative.
I loved his insights into Hollywood and how things are run.
He nailed Tom Cruise. FUNNY!
Great read/listen! If you grew up in the 80s you can appreciate this entire book!
It was a fantastic telling of real stories... Love how it interconnected all of Hollywood as made it so real.
Entertaining, Enjoyable, Engaging
I have not listened to Rob Lowe before, but I felt like I became a friend of his and could just invite him over if he comes to my area.
From the heart.
I really feel like I got to know Rob Lowe from this performance and really enjoyed the story.
I always love back story.
Lowe kept on pushing. Found a responsible way to parent by using his experiences and partnership of his friend/wife.
the understanding that he could not change his mom's illness and just kept living his life.
I think a lot of Rob Lowe's performances were overlooked and overshadowed by media marketing and other nonsense.
Rob Lowe's voice and his way of telling the stories. It was like you were sitting with him in his living room.
His honesty and transparency.
He had inflections in his voice, which many readers don't bother with. And his imitations of other actors.
I was moved. And it was hilarious, I would be driving along and laughing outloud.
