Knowing little to nothing about Howard Hughes, I picked up this book which had been sitting on the counter of the tiny bookshop I had been visiting. In my innocence, I thought it would be a biography about Mr. Hughes since it is an 800+ page tome. Silly, silly me.

What this huge book is really about is the sex life of Howard Hughes and his various partners. It claims he was intimate with both men and women and starts with a detailed account of his mother, a bowl, and...well, you really don't want

Not as well written as should have been, as if the author had been in a big rush to get it on the shelves. I can understand that! More of an "National Enquirer" recap with all the quirky tendencies of Howard Hughes (especially sexualky).

Not exactly what I was looking to glean from a book about Howard Hughes! Not for the faint of heart or closed of mind, it is an incredibly salacious work that delves deeply into his sexual relationships with Hollywood's leading men and women.

If you were looking to learn about Hughes the inventor and b ...more

So sordid, it makes Charles Higham read like Doris Kearns Goodwin.

Beyond the standard goal of adding another notch to my Hughes stable, I was inspired to grab this after reading Porter's Sinatra book for Blood Moon. It was in line with what I was expecting.

I hate to play the too-long card, but it is too long - at first I was not sure as this was my first ever Kindle book, but the dead tree version is in fact 800+ pages.

So for a really, really long and trashy read, you can grab this.

Was a good book, very very long and I doubt everything is actually true.
