BOOK CLUB BOOK: This book had brief moments where I found a nugget of wisdom or humor (so it probably deserves 1.5 stars) but I mostly found the narrator prideful, irritating, and so self-absorbed that I just didn't care about what happened to him next. I didn't get the sense that this "memoir" was really all that truthful either, so I didn't find it captivating or believable. The gimmick - reflecting on his life through films he watched (or acted in) at various ages - was a weak unifying theme in my opinion. This seems like an indulgent stunt-type project from a guy that, I hope, is a better actor, than writer.
