I love the movie "The Way" that Emilio and Martin made together...this book is a wonderful inside view of that journey...but so much more! It is a sharing of a truly unique and loving family that has not only survived Hollywood...but gained great wisdom that has enabled them to thrive in so many ways. Very inspiring!
The Camino by Shirley MacLaine. She also courageously bares her soul and shares her transformative life experiences and wisdom.
No, but I will in the future.
The commitment that Martin Sheen and his life-long marriage partner Janet Templeton have sustained in the raising of their four children and in the inclusion of their children's ex-spouses to create a strong sense of family for all their grandchildren. The sign on the entrance to their home reads something like..."All are welcome...leave your conflicts at the door." Bravo!
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?
loved the movie and this just gave a lot of background as to why the movie worked.
Yes I would, it's not a great book, but it is interesting and entertaining. Emilio and Martin share rich stories of childhood and growth, and I have a greater appreciation for them as people than I did before.
I wanted to compare it to Rob Lowe's autobiography, but it's not quite as personal or gripping as his.
Love the story. Love the movie. Martin Sheen and Emilio Estevez are both some of my favorite actors.
I enjoyed the audio version especially given the narrators
By their narration they bring their personalities and emotion giving the story life
l enjoyed the story especially about the journey in Spain. I also enjoyed the contrasting view of father and son. I was fascinated upon finding that Martin took his family on location with him. At times I found the text slow moving. As an avid West Wing fan I would have enjoyed some insight into that part of his life.
No - I don't listen to any books more than once.
Emilio's voice. I LOVE his voice!
I am mostly impressed with Janet Sheen. What an amazing woman she is!
I enjoyed many of Emilio and Martin's recollections of things they went through together. It was interesting to hear each of their own perspectives.
I have a whole new respect for Martin and Janet and (in spite of some of the things Martin did) I am very impressed with how they started out so young, with so little, and still became successful and raised such a loving talented family.
Both of them seem so at peace. Congratulations to the Sheen/Estevez families.
No I didn't' know they had done any others.
Martin mentions something about doing a book with Charlie eventually...now THAT one should be interesting!
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
I don't do a lot of print versions, mostly audiobooks. However, in this case, I think the print version might be better. The sound is poor, as there is a lot of echoing, and Emelio talks too fast, for me to enjoy his portion.
I didn't know they were so close, so it was good to find out about how much they have done together; perhaps Charlie is jealous of this relationship, thus his behavior.
Emelio needs to speak slower.
No, as it is too long for me to listen to in one sitting.
Interesting adventures for a father and son, especially two who are so famous; lessons for other fathers and sons.
