An excellent book and look into the life of one of the most memorable onscreen killers. This read had me laughing, wincing, and near crying at points. Kane Hodder is an in your face truth kinda guy which is refreshing change from other biographies I've read which tend to be more formal in their telling. I actually felt as though this was a one on one with one of the most talented stuntmen/actors ever to grace Hollywood. So if you are a fan of the latter Friday the 13th movies or Kane himself you owe it to yourself to get this book.
While this isn't great literature Kane who also narrates this just hits his marks and tells the truth . Knew little about him aside from behind a horror icon and working stunt man . Was surprised to see he is a very dedicated and caring guy towards what he loves but if not then get out of his way .
This goes into very humiliating times in his life and how he is his best ally and worst enemy .
This story is funny and tragic and a great take for blue collars like me who want to still believe hard work pays off .
Thanks Kane !
this was, by far, one of the best books to cross my path in a very long time. I have been a fan of Kane Hodder since I was a teenager but this book made me fall in love with him all over again and in a completely different way. I don't mean that in any other way but with the upmost respect. his story and journey are such an inspiration. outside of my own father and husband, i cant think of a better example of a real and true man!!! kudos to you Kane! keep kicking ass and taking names later!
To Hodder means to never stop fighting. As a massive fan of Kane, this Audible is smashing. I read this before but to listen to the Man himself giving us his story is incredibly moving. Michael Aloisi has
given us fans a real treat and my thanks to him and Kane Hodder for letting us in.
Was a heart wrenching story lots of ups and downs for Mr Hodder . The only thing that buged me was jumpring around in his time frame of storys he was telling it be talking about his adult hood then kid then back to adult. But over all the book was great give me a new view and love for Kane Hodder . I wanted to know more was sad when it was over . Can not wait to get to a convention to meet him one day
"amazing book. im gonna have to listen to it again."
amazing book. im gonna have to listen to it again. kane hodder is one of the nicest men ive ever met
"Fascinating look at the life (so far!) of Kane"
It was a nice balance of family history, stories, details and anecdotes that never dragged.
The horrific yet fascinating detail of Kane's accident was grueling to listen to, I can't even imagine what it was like to go through for real! Yet it never felt as if it were shocking for shock's sake. It was very well put across.
It's always great to hear an author read his own story, and despite some fleeting moments where it felt like he was reading (which of course, he was), most of the time it felt like Kane was just talking to you. I like that.
Having Adam Green read his own introduction was a nice touch. All in all it was a great look at Kane's life and profession, I'd listen to him again for sure.
