  • The Elephant to Hollywood

    Story
    (276)

    Charming, engaging, and surprisingly forthright, Michael Caine gives us his insider's view of Hollywood and the story of his brilliant second act. When he was in his late 50s, Michael Caine believed his Hollywood career had come to an end. The scripts being sent his way were worse and worse. Salvation came in the unlikely form of his old friend Jack Nicholson, who convinced him to give acting one more shot. What followed was one of the most radical comebacks in film history.

    What made the experience of listening to The Elephant to Hollywood the most enjoyable?

    A great peek inside his life -not just breaking into Hollywood but relationships, growing up, etc.. And I love when he would make himself laugh throughout.


    What other book might you compare The Elephant to Hollywood to and why?

    Rob Lowe's autobiography - both were intriguing and entertaining and it makes it better when the author reads their own work.


    What does Michael Caine bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Hearing him share his story is so much better than reading it.

    Highly recommend this!

    Why is it that women, who are so competent in all other areas of their lives, cannot find the same competence when it comes to matters of money? Suze Orman investigates the complicated, dysfunctional relationship women have with money in this groundbreaking new audiobook. With her signature mix of insight, compassion, and soul-deep recognition, she equips women with the financial knowledge and emotional awareness to overcome the blocks that have kept them from making more out of the money they make.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Not sure - some of the info is good basic stuff to know (after you get thru the first several chapters) but the vo was horrid


    What didn’t you like about Susan Denaker’s performance?

    it felt flat - the book would have been much better if the author had read it


    What insight do you think you’ll apply from Women & Money?

    there are a few good basics in there


    Any additional comments?

    the book constantly refers you to various websites, but a lot of those are not quite up to date and/or the information has changed

    A teen idol at 15, an international icon and founder of the Brat Pack at 20, and one of Hollywood's top stars to this day, Rob Lowe chronicles his experiences. Never mean-spirited or salacious, Lowe delivers unexpected glimpses into his successes, disappointments, relationships, and one-of-a-kind encounters with people who shaped our world over the last 25 years. These stories are as entertaining as they are unforgettable.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Definitely - the book was a great insight into how a young aspiring actor worked his way up in the industry


    Have you listened to any of Rob Lowe’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have not but he did an incredible job with the VO read - it was great to hear it straight from the author


    Any additional comments?

    Great book and I loved that the author read the VO - it made it more authentic and entertaining

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    teenagers


    What didn’t you like about Becca Battoe’s performance?

    it wasn't believable - also it would have been better if they had a male and female vo rather than the female reading both parts


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    disappointment - I had heard a lot of hype about it, but found it to be boring and more suited toward teenagers than adults.
