I enjoyed this book so much being a fan of the family thinking I knew them, so much information, love, tragedy. I learned a lot and enjoyed the ride. Looking forward to seeing many of this films I have missed along the way.
Among other autobiographies I would rank this book in the top ten.
I liked the fact that they were honest about their story even when it might have been uncomfortable to do so.
Yes and I appreciated how they remembered things differently.
No, actually it is better to take it in pieces. You don't want to listen to your uncle tell you his entire life story in one sitting do you?
yes, because Martin Sheen and Emilio Estevez make good story tellers
Along the way is a good title, because it's stories along the way
This was such a beautiful and beautifully done story! I looked forward to listening yet tried to mete it out so that it would not be done too quickly. Unlike many celebrity books, it felt like a real life.
Being a teenager in the 80s, I've always been a big Amelio fan. And how can you not be a fan of Martin? I've read many biographies and makes me sad that this is the first one I've ever had to give a negative review for. The stories fail to give you the behind the scenes Hollywood stories you would expect. Amelio fails to bring in any interesting stories of his childhood growing up with Tom Cruise Rob Lowe the Penn Brothers. Instead what we get is the father and son focusing in on their Spanish heritage trying to make the world aware that they are proud of their origins with far too many stories of Martin's father of whom none of us would hold an interest. Then there is the father-son bond to which the book feels like each member is using the book to let the other party know how much they care and respect for each other. I find this book difficult to enjoy
This was such a beautiful story about the journey between a father and son and how it continues to this day. I loved how they narrated the tales from their recollections of the past and from working with each other on The Way which has become one of my favorite movies. This was a great read or in my case listen. I would highly recommend it to all. Loved it is the best way to describe it.
I really enjoyed learning about Martin Sheen. I was pleasantly surprised to learn about Emilio.
Yes, but was not able to do so.
Great story through the generations. Love to step into someone eles world for a day to experience what they have . Took me back to a differient time.
I'm not sure what I expected? What I got was a beautiful, loving, real life story of a father and son and the challenges they faced together. It's not a celebrity memoir, it's life.
the experiences of father and son told in parallel, revealed their individual and synergitic development
