I stumbled across The Movies of My Life on the way out of the fiction section of my library. I’m not exactly a movie-buff — though I recognized Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory and Earthquake! — but the premise sounded interesting and added it to my stack. The Movies of My Life started off with some intrigue as you get to know the main character and begin to wonder how he got so intense, lonely, and estranged from his family.

But the intrigue is quickly dissipates, and the story loss any momentum it once had. The story didn’t really head anywhere, and I grew impatient with the meandering storyline. In addition, the connection between the movies, earthquakes and the character’s upbringing are nonexistence.
