Wonderfully chatty and self effacing
What made the experience of listening to Starmaker the most enjoyable?
Loved the honest and gossipy presentation of Jays perspective... The highs and lows and his numerous hiring and firings...
Who was your favorite character and why?
Jay Bernstein is doesn't seem to hold much back or pull any punches. He calls it as he sees it, showing himself to be a hero at times and a schmuck at other times. He was a funny guy and an interesting character. Half way through the book, I googled him to see some pictures of him with some of the celebrities he worked with that I wasn't familiar with, since we don't get a photo section with an audible book and was shocked to find out that he had died a number of years ago and the book was released after his death. The book was so chatty and well read, that I felt like I lost a new friend that had been sharing their life stories, victories and embarrassing failures with me.
Have you listened to any of Arthur Morey’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
No, but I really enjoyed it.
