Poor narration

I wanted to love this and Burt has some great stories to tell but the whole thing is marred by abysmal narration.

Maybe I'm just spoiled by some amazing narrators I've listened to in recent times but Burt Reynolds alternates between inarticulate to almost sounding drunk for most of this book, some chapters are better than others but overall very difficult to listen to.

I liked this book

It's true that Mr Reynolds has a quiet slightly raspy voice but Its not an unpleasant voice, after ten minutes or so I got used to it and it did get stronger as the book progressed. There is an honesty about Burt Reynolds that wouldn't have come across if it had been read by someone else. He talks a lot about the people/actors he knows. It's made me want to go and watch his films again through new eyes !

Should've used a narrator...

Burt Reynolds and his peers arrived on the scene at a very interesting time for the motion picture industry; The established stars of the 40s & 50s were feeling their popularity wane as a new stable of faces began taking all the parts and, as a result, put their mark on a whole new era of films. And Burt was right there; friends with Spencer Tracey and Bette Davis and also colleagues with Jon Voight and Paul Newman. This book promised to be an interesting read.

But why oh why did they let Burt read it himself? Please understand there's nothing wrong with his voice and the man can tell a good story. But how do I put this politely; you can tell the recordings they did in the morning (where his voice is bright and animated) against those done "after lunch", where Burt sadly slurs and mumbles his way through the text, sometimes almost incoherently.

The recording is also very lazy, with lots of mistakes and generally poor sound quality, and you're left with the impression that there was a "That'll Do" attitude towards the whole project.

Shame really, because some of the stories Burt tells are interesting, entertaining and a fascinating glimpse into the movie industry of the early 1970s. It just needs to be re-recorded...
