Roger Moore µ ebook

One of the most recognizable big screen stars of the past half century Sir Roger Moore played the role of James Bond longer than any other actor Beginning with the classic Live and Let Die running through Moonraker and A View to a Kill Moore brought his finely honed wit and wry charm to one of Hollywood's most beloved and long lasting characters Still James Bond was only one in a lifetime of roles stretching back to Hollywood's studio era and encompassing stardom in theater and television on both sides of the Atlantic From The Saint to Maveri This book is exactly like Roger Moore's onscreen persona kind gentle witty naughtyand just a tad bitchy at times well forthright if you prefer It reads like he dictated the whole thing to someone a ghost writer uite likely and then later went over and edited and rewrote bits And it's all the better for it Because this is not one of those star biographies posing as the 'real truth' about so and so or claiming to be a serious piece of non fiction It's his story in his words in his 'voice' as it were and that's half the pleasure and delight of it The story is a wonderful one filled within incident and starry name dropping and endless anecdotes and asides that still manage to string together as a coherent chronological 'life' Many of the famous names are from before my time or half heard names vaguely recalled Some of course are contemporary or still around It makes no difference Moore has a knack for picking just the right story to tell and giving it just the right amount of coverage He makes no bones about his own faults even as he takes the opportunity to set the record straight on a number of minor and major points and takes any number of digs at himself as well as others It's all terribly good fun in a very British sense of humor and style and I loved it to bits I actually slowed down because I wanted to savor all the stories and took my time finishing it A lovely charming entertainment from a charming and lovely entertainer A real treat
