Best Book I Have Heard In A Long Time!!!
What did you love best about Mr. & Mrs. Hollywood?
I loved how well Kathleen Sharp kept the book interesting by weaving back and forth among the decades while telling stories from different angles and how well narrator Tavia Gilbert did in performing this immense amount of text.
With their mix of talents, this book could have been twice as long and I still would have craved for more. It truly was an addiction to listen to, and that is a credit to not only the topic, but the writing and performance.
I loved the book so much that I found a first edition on Ebay to give to my mom, as I knew she would love it as well. But nothing can beat having the book read to you so masterfully!!!!! 5 stars in all catergories!!!!!!! 6 if I could give that many!!!
What was one of the most memorable moments of Mr. & Mrs. Hollywood?
Finding out the stories behind the Hollywood we know. How deals came together, power came to be, and how some of our favorite movies came to be.
Which scene was your favorite?
There are truly too many great and enjoyable stories to count but the first to come to mind is the realization of how activities at MCA would one day be replicated in the political world. Iran Contra was not the first time Ronnie relied on not being able to remember!!!
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
YES!! While I believe it was over 25 hours, I hated when I had to turn it off. I listen to my books during housework, while driving to and from work, etc. I found reasons to listen to this book!!
Any additional comments?
With the 25 hour run time and the sample that was provided, I was afraid this may be dry material. I can assure you that the sample provided is the slowest part of the book and that once it takes off with mergers and management, if you have an interest in Hollywood and power brokering, you will love this book! I cannot say enough good about Mr. & Mrs. Hollywood!!!! Thank you to the author and narrator for a fantastic experience.
