    He was the Golden Boy of the Golden Age. A prince of the silver screen. Dashing and debonair, Tony Curtis arrived on the scene in a blaze of bright lights and celluloid. His good looks, smooth charm, and natural talent earned him fame, women, and adulation - Elvis copied his look and the Beatles put him on their Sgt. Pepper album cover. But the Hollywood life of his dreams brought both invincible highs and debilitating lows.

    Chris says: "Interesting and colorful"
    "I enjoyed this book!"
    Overall

    Although I am not a big fan of Tony Curtis I did enjoy his book. I love the history of the old Hollywood and because I recognized every person he wrote about I really enjoyed that aspect of the book. Curtis certainly loves himself as this book shows but you can't help liking him in spite of himself. I thought the reader was excellent. You really felt it was Curtis himself who was doing the reading.

    On May 13, 1945, 24 American servicemen and WACs boarded a transport plane for a sightseeing trip over “Shangri-La,” a beautiful and mysterious valley deep within the jungle-covered mountains of Dutch New Guinea. Unlike the peaceful Tibetan monks of James Hilton’s best-selling novel Lost Horizon, this Shangri-La was home to spear-carrying tribesmen, warriors rumored to be cannibals. But the pleasure tour became an unforgettable battle for survival when the plane crashed. Miraculously, three passengers pulled through.

    For more than two years, Miep Gies and her husband helped hide the Franks from the Nazis. Like thousands of unsung heroes of the Holocaust, they risked their lives each day to bring food, news, and emotional support to the victims. From her own remarkable childhood as a World War I refugee to the moment she places a small, red-orange, checkered diary -- Anne's legacy -- in Otto Frank's hands, Miep Gies remembers her days with simple honesty and shattering clarity.

    Deidre says: "Thank you Miep Gies"

    It was fascinating to hear about the more detailed story of Anne and her family and the people who tried to save them.

    At a certain time in life, we all come to realize what is truly important to us and what just doesn’t matter. For Shirley MacLaine, that time is now. In this wise, witty, and fearless collection of small observations and big-picture questions, she shares with listeners all those things that she is over dealing with in life, in love, at home, and in the larger world… as well as the things she will never get over, no matter how long she lives.

    Daniel says: "Getting over all that"
    "Not that interesting. Shirley, she can do better!"

    Not that interesting. I am sure Shirley has much more interesting experiences in her life.
