This illustrated collection of humorous essays and fun extras makes the case for one of our most iconic celebrities, from Bill and Ted to John Wick.

For an actor who’s been in so many mega-hits and equally mega misses, it can be tough to track Keanu Reeves's accomplishments. But true fans know that Keanu is so much more than his Bill and Ted persona, both onscreen and off.

This was a quick, fun read with some great insights into Keanu's career and how he has affected and been affected by racism and toxic masculinity.

Who would benefit in this Keanu-fest? Fans of course, who wouldn’t mind reading all about how lovely and kind this Keanu person is and hopefully would-be Keanu fans who scratch their heads and think, why the fuss? So the style of writing is consistent with Quirk - funny, conversational, and sassy. There are some nice illustrations peppered throughout, although the cover is not nearly as cool as the one for The Rock (I dunno, maybe every fan has their favorite Keanu look and the cover does not do ...more

Yeah...no. The book is all stuff one can find on the internet. For that matter, most interviews can be found there, too. I've been a fan since the 80's. I have yet to find a very informative book on the man. He's pretty ordinary, like most of us, and just wants to live his life. I can't imagine any book about him being very revealing or concise unless the guy writes his memoirs. That could be interesting, maybe, kind of in the way ours would be if we could continue living our everyday lives with ...more

I love Larissa and Kitty’s humor, and this did not disappoint. I went from being a “yeah I like what I’ve seen him in” Keanu Fan to a “I need to watch his whole catalogue from the beginning” Keanu Fan. I never thought I’d fall down the Keanu Reeves rabbit hole, so I appreciate Larissa and Kitty doing it for me and presenting such great information in such a funny way. I came away from this thinking “wow he’s way fucking cooler than I knew”.

Am I supposed to say I got this for free from NetGalley?

He is the one, he is the only, he is the legend.
The angel without wings, the dedicated actor, the embodiment of the "good".
The internet phenomenon, who is loved by everyone: Mr. Keanu Reeves!

"He wears blood like a fine suit. He wears a fine suit beneath blood. His brutal form is wrung and well-written: the lines of his face cut light and kiss shadow; the bow of his broad shoulders braces for the inevitable; his eyes flicker with pain. He's had the shit kicked out of him. He looks like he's kick

Zageris and Curran share their love of Keanu with their book of essays unravelling the mythos behind the star and his pick of films. Written with tongue firmly in the cheek, it does make you look at Keanu beyond the smouldering good looks.

The book is basically a study about Keanu’s film career and the curious choices he makes with each film. It does dip into his charity work and shows what a caring and extraordinary person he is. It runs the gambit from his early days to where he is now in his

This book made me laugh out loud at times. There are a lot of running themes and in-jokes, so it's worth it to read all the way through. Keanu is a private person, so there isn't a lot of new or personal info; rather, the focus is on Keanu's interesting career choices. Not just a pretty face and not a dumb surfer dude at all, the authors affirm, Keanu is a hardworking, well-read actor and a genuinely nice person who doesn't take himself too seriously. My least favorite part was the fanfiction, b ...more

Very light and quick read that would be situated to people that rather liked the actor but wouldn't necessarily call themselves unabashed fans. For followers of Keanu's career over the last few decades, there's no new information or insights here at all, but it is still very readable and entertaining enough in many places throughout.

There were plenty of times when reading For Your Consideration, it felt like an E! Keanu Reeves Special in a book format., not necessarily a bad thing at all, but no
