Love Life serves up another delicious selection of intimate stories and observations from Rob Lowe's life, told with humor, warmth, and brutal honesty. After writing his acclaimed debut effort, Lowe felt he had more stories to share and many more friends to introduce. The result is a touching memoir about the business and craft of acting, the pitfalls of success, family, love, and much more.

Thoughtful, loving and compelling

What did you like best about this story?

Congratulations to Rob for yet another biography that is filled with warmth, humility and love. So many young actors are emotionally stunted by the endless attention their good looks and talent affords them at too young an age. Clearly Rob navigated his early years fairly deftly, with only a few self admitted bumps along the way. He found his footing early on, and putting one foot in front of the other, is leading the life he has worked so hard to achieve. The stories he shares of his journey thus far, reflect a maturity and determination that is both impressive and inspiring.

After a long and eventful life, Allan Karlsson ends up in a nursing home, believing it to be his last stop. The only problem is that he's still in good health, and in one day, he turns 100. A big celebration is in the works, but Allan really isn't interested (and he'd like a bit more control over his vodka consumption). So he decides to escape. He climbs out the window in his slippers and embarks on a hilarious and entirely unexpected journey, involving, among other surprises, a suitcase stuffed with cash.

Forest Gump-esque story.. The winding tale of the 100 year old mans life is filled with innocence and humor as his life unfolds before him, taking his to the most improbable places, meeting the most improbable people under improbable circumstances that results in this amazing, heartwarming tale. I can't wait to see the movie!!
