This review is from: The Moon's a Balloon (Paperback)
This was more interesting than I expected, as I didn't realise David had spent so long in Hollywood, especially at the higher echelons as he seems to have done. I found his early life interesting, although he was obviously much better connected than the average reader is likely to be. These connections and wealthy friends allowed him to gad about in a manner that seems far removed from reality nowadays.
Even his army days came across as amusing, almost an extension of public school high jinks, with plenty of witty anecdotes about his exploits and the many characters he met.
I actually felt that the book was less detailed than I'd hoped, almost skimming across areas I'd have liked to have learned more about, but the goood thing is that it has made me read more about the man on the internet.
I'm now starting "Bring on the Empty Horses" and although I gather he was a bit fast and loose with the truth in terms of his actual involvement, I'm hoping that this will flesh out some of the Hollywood aspects of his life.
