Bob Johansson has just sold his software company and is looking forward to a life of leisure. There are places to go, books to read, and movies to watch. So it's a little unfair when he gets himself killed crossing the street. Bob wakes up a century later to find that corpsicles have been declared to be without rights, and he is now the property of the state. He has been uploaded into computer hardware and is slated to be the controlling AI in an interstellar probe looking for habitable planets.

  • The Disaster Artist

  • My Life inside 'The Room', the Greatest Bad Movie Ever Made

Nineteen-year-old Greg Sestero met Tommy Wiseau at an acting school in San Francisco. Wiseau's scenes were rivetingly wrong, yet Sestero, hypnotized by such uninhibited acting, thought, "I have to do a scene with this guy." That impulse changed both of their lives. The Disaster Artist is Greg Sestero's laugh-out-loud funny account of how Tommy Wiseau defied every law of artistry, business, and friendship to make "the Citizen Kane of bad movies" ( Entertainment Weekly), which is now an international phenomenon.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

This is a great book for any young actor thinking about moving to LA. Being well beyond young or new to LA these tales ring true based on the anecdotal stories of friends and colleagues - none of which were involved with this film.

What didn’t you like about Greg Sestero’s performance?

Greg's performance is a bit inconsistent at the top of certain chapters his resonance changes. It feels like he's not warmed up or has gone back to re - record. Overall this is an very good first audiobook performance from the actor.
