Challenge 27 - Reading someone else's story...

Challenge 27 - Read a biography.
I'm really storming on with the challenge list this month!  Or maybe I just happen to be doing things that work in with the list - summer seems to be the best time for getting out and about and getting things done I think.  Now this book says it's an autobiography, but a technicality that small can be overlooked right?  I really like Michael Caine as an actor and I've been wanting to read his book for a while.  I almost never read biography style books - I just prefer the style of fiction writing or learning interesting random info from the non fiction section, but I really enjoyed his story.  He's very opinionated and 'tells it like it is', and it was fun to hear about his early career - the best part of any famous person's story is hearing how and where it started, I always think.  I haven't read his first book (published in 1992) but he does point out that it covers some of the same ground, so I guess if you've read that there's not much here you couldn't learn from Wikepedia, but I'd recommend it for an easy, interesting read.

Has anyone else read it?  Share your thoughts!

  1. I haven't read this but I'd like to; I do have quite the soft spot for him.

  2. Love your list! I', about to start writing my 30 before 30 list, so this is inspiring! x
