This is a fully entertaining book -- and the personality of Keaton comes through; he seems like an honest, genuine fellow who admits his flaws and wants you to have a good time -- and I enjoyed spending the time with him.
Jan 26, Zohla rated it really liked it This is not a personal read, I had to read this for work but it was a wonderful surprise. Biographies are not particularly my style. Not to say I dont read them but I just dont go look for them. The most recent one Ive read was Born a Crime by Trevor Noah and if you check, youll see I really loved it and would highly recommand.
Buster Keaton really was a genius, anyone who sees his films will know, but it was even better to find out where all this genius comes from. This man had an incredible childhood and life in general. He has so many stories to tell that this book is never boring. There is a spirit of exaggeration and tall-tale that runs through it and the reader should be especially cautious about accepting the factual details of his telling.
However, his praise of DW Griffiths without any.
