5.0 out of 5 stars I did NAAAHT expect it to be so amazing, 4 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As if that movie couldn't get funnier, hearing Sestero's anecdotes on the nightmare shoot add a context that make scenes even more ridiculous. The book's narrative has two sections that it switches back and forth to: Sestero's life before, during and after meeting and sharing an apartment with Tommy Wiseau AND the story of the Room's production. The pace is brilliant. You won't want to put it down. The book gives insight into the enigma that is Tommy Wiseau, where he (possibly) came from and how he lives his life (which is even more insane than you'd think. For one thing he thinks he's a vampire.) The surprising thing about this book is that even with it's (frequent) laugh out loud moments, by the end it becomes very moving. I did not expect to tear up reading the final page, but I did. One of the best books I've read. And no I am not Tommy Wiseau don't even ask.
