    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.

    N. Belle says: "Great Book and Great Story"
    "Good fun!"
    Overall

    I loved this book so much more than I thought I would! I listened to the audible audio book, which Lowe reads himself. I heard about the book after watching Rob on Oprah. I saw how sweet and loving he was with his wife and I thought, heck I want to hear his story.

    Stories, is a funny, insightful and honest look into one of the Brat Pack - which is totally my generation. I loved every minute of this stories and all his spot on voices of the actors he met with. Nothing felt gossipy. Nothing felt preachy. It was just like meeting a new friend.

    I might listen to it again!

    Story
    (52)

    Carl Webster, the hot kid of the marshals service, is polite, respects his elders, and can shoot a man driving away in an Essex at 400 yards. Carl works out of the Tulsa, Oklahoma, federal courthouse during the 1930s, the period of America's most notorious bank robbers: Dillinger, Baby Face Nelson...those guys.

    Shawnna says: "A great book, an even better listen"
    "Leonard does it again!"
    Overall

    It is a little bit western and a whole lot crime novel.

    I think the narrator did a fair job doing a ton of male southern accents! Sure, they are similar, but I could tell by the inflection of his voice who was speaking. I thought he was a great reader.

    The characters are Leonard's interesting blend of good & bad all in one. The Oklahoma landscape makes a hot, dusty backdrop that adds to the story's overall feel. Its a great crime story that feels one part western (Carl seemed a little cowboy quick draw to me) and one part crime spree.

    Its a winner!

    One Thousand White Women is the story of May Dodd and a colorful assembly of pioneer women who travel to the Western prairies in 1875 to intermarry among the Cheyenne Indians.

    Cynthia says: "Good story, well read, you know how it ends"
    "An enjoyable listen"
    Overall

    I have recently started a long commute and decided to start listening to audio books to help with long drives. My friend had recommended this book, as she had just finished reading it. She had told me it was a non-fiction account of a white woman who was sold to Indians. OK, so that description is more than a little off! Still I enjoyed the entirely fictional account of a group of white women (and one black) and their touching and often heartbreaking venture into the Cheyenne Indian culture as part of the Indian Bride program.

    The voice actor that voiced the book was amazing - giving each character a distinct sound. She truly brought life to the words and made the book an enjoyable listen. I couldn't wait to turn it on.

    I hesitate to give it 5 stars, just because it is often violent and has a less than upbeat ending, but I did love it!
