As an author myself, dyslexic, and ADD, I need something that grabs me. Non-fiction on things of interest to me, educates, & titillates.
The father and son
honest and written well
it was all good
If there was a bit more editing, the story would have moved along a bit faster. It did drag in parts but the book was very good.
No because it was hard to listen to. The story didn't really keep my attention.
Emilio is a pretty good nararator but this is the second book that I've gotten with Martin Sheen reading and he is an awful nararator. I can't stand the way he reads and his emotions seem impersonal.
No the story was decent but I can't see myself listening to a follow-up even if they wrote it.
Hate to read but have enjoyed listening to books.
It was just okay, some parts were a little boring to me.
Interesting story and gave some good insights.
Yes. But you have to get over the cliches. Every sentence is over-written and made me cringe. But I just kept in my mind that these are not book authors. I just wish that their memoirist would have guarded them against dramatizing each and every sentence. I just wanted to learn more about them. But I felt many times that I was reading an over-written play.
Oh goodness no. If it was a movie, imagine the dramatic rises and swells in the music, for every sentence. Every utterance was dramatic and important. Gads.
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!
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.
