Extraordinary subject matter, meshing show business and politics, told by the man who lived the story.
Not really applicable here, though the focus of the book is on Dalton Trumbo, who was quite a character in real life.
He is the son of the author, clearly caring about the book's message, and his father's commitment to that message.
Direct. Educational. Dry.
Manhunt. Same subject matter, told in a more engaging manner.
His pronunciation of the word "cavalry" as "cal-vary," throughout, was incredibly distracting. Might one of the sound technicians mentioned this to him?
No. A bit at a time was fine.
Certainly worth reading or listening to. Just not earth-shattering.
I wouldn't listen again because it's a book and there are so many other books to read and listen to!
Perhaps the chapter on Rex Harrison.
I have not.
"Be careful what you say to Frank Langella."
I found the book fascinating, but, then, I am in the business and recognized pertty much all of the "characters." So I gave it five stars across the board. I can see, though, how some listeners/readers might find Langella as pompous and arrogant as some of the people about whom he writes. Still, I enjoyed listening very much.
