    Story
    (101)

    A wryly funny and moving account of an extraordinary life lived almost entirely in the public eye.

    Teen idol at 15, 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 as a painfully misunderstood child actor in Ohio uprooted to the wild counterculture of mid-1970s Malibu, where he embarked on his unrelenting pursuit of a career in Hollywood.

    Björn says: "A surprisingly brilliant book"
    "LOVED IT!!!! Want to press replay."

    Story
    Would you listen to Stories I Only Tell My Friends again? Why?

    Yes, even the moment I'd just finished listening I wanted to replay.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It wasn't a story of one person, it was a story about a range of characters that I could relate to. Rob Lowe was not arrogant at all, as I sometimes find in memoirs. I felt he was 'factually telling a story'.


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

    As its a memoir, when I hear 'I' or 'my', I believe it. Also his character voices that he put on were able to assist me understand the different layers of people who we come across in life.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Made me look at actors and other members of the film industry as humans, people and artists. I'll be getting the movies that he refers to in the book and watching from a different perspective.


    Any additional comments?

    Good on you Rob. I thought nothing of you before. Nothing positive, nothing negative. I now have a new found respect. Its warming.
