Stories I Only Tell My Friends by Rob Lowe

Stories I Only Tell My Friends audiobook Rob LoweWhat’s it about? In his memoir Stories I Only Tell My Friends, actor Rob Lowe shares the highs and lows of his personal and professional life. The memoir chronicles breaking into the ensemble of future stars in Francis Ford Coppola’s The Outsiders (1983), through his spotlight roles in St. Elmo’s Fire (1985) and About Last Night . . . (1986), and onto his later career revival as Sam Seaborn on The West Wing (1999-2003). He also discusses his parent’s divorce, his mother’s depression, overcoming his addiction to alcohol and the love he has for his wife and sons.

Is the narrator any good? I know I’m preaching to the converted, but why would you want to read these stories yourself when you can have Rob Lowe tell them to you by listening to this audio book. As you would expect from a Hollywood star the narration is top notch – I particularly enjoyed Rob’s voice impersonations of various celebrities.

The verdict? There is much to love about this audio book: cool Hollywood stories featuring a long list of who’s who in Hollywood (Francis Ford Coppola, Tom Cruise, Martin Sheen, Charlie Sheen, Demi Moore, etc), an inspiring story of personal transformation, and excellent narration from the author himself. In fact there was nothing I didn’t like about this audio book… it’s one of those special ones which you don’t want to end. Rob shows that he is more than a pretty face – he is also intelligent, worldly, witty, and political. Enjoy!
