WONDERFUL STORY! BAD NARRATOR!
What made the experience of listening to Fred MacMurray the most enjoyable?
Having grown up watching MY THREE SONS (1959-1972), I found the story of Fred MacMurray quite enlightening. It was endearing to find out that the man I enjoyed as a homey father figure was also a down home person. McMurray was never one to let fame to go to his head. I also admired the fact that he stood by his first wife all the way to her deathbed (not many people do that any more
What other book might you compare Fred MacMurray to and why?
Another wonderful comparison would be the book MY LUCKY LIFE IN AND OUT OF SHOW BUSINESS (Dick Van Dyke, 2012). Though the Van Dyke book is an autobiography, it paints both people in real colors (not studio-created images).
What didn’t you like about Patrick Ross’s performance?
Patrick Ross reads the book in monotone, almost sounding like a computer voice. Had he put emotions (at least some), it would have been much more interesting.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
It's a very charming book, but, at ten hours, a little too long for one sitting.
Any additional comments?
If you are a baby boomer, this is a MUST READ!
