In any event, the beauty of this sort of project is that if some bit, paragraph, snippet or short tale doesn't grab you, then another is coming right down the line after it. For what it's worth I had a real potato chip experience with this, and kept saying "Just one more" as I tried to move on. High praise indeed.
When I was offered the chance to review this book, there was no doubt that I wanted to read it. This book has a massive amount information about Hollywood from various eras (but mostly old Hollywood). It is organized in chapters/sections that make sense, and each story is no more than a page or two long. It is quick reading, and I am sure I will go back and review various sections.
I honestly have no criticisms for this book. The only "profanity" was so extremely mild, and anything that was more than what is acceptable on television was not even written. I cannot tell you how much I appreciate that. It was nice to read about some of these people that I only knew by name, and it was definitely a fun read. I also appreciate the fact that the author was/is a Hollywood tour guide, and he listed a long list of sources he consulted. This makes me feel that he researched his topics, and his only purpose is telling stories about Hollywood. He is not trying to "smear" anyone or hurt them. He told is as it was, and he did it an easy-to-read style. For the Hollywood movie buff, this is a definite must-read!
I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. I was not financially compensated, and all opinions are 100 percent mine.
I liked, but didn't luv this book. Enjoyed it mostly because I understand what a true treasure this guy is in the movie business and likely as a representative of England. Get this book if you can find it cheap.
The only quibble I have, and it is a very small one, is that Mr Schochet habitually includes the age of the celebrity. Bing Crosby may have been forty-eight when this event happened, but he isn't forty-eight now. For some reason, this bothers me - but I don't know why, and it is a very small thing anyway. Don't let it stop your enjoyment of this highly-recommended book.
