If the moons a balloon then niven holds the balloon,
This review is from: The Moon's a Balloon (Paperback)
I wasnt really interested in this book originally, my father had implored me to read it for the last 4 years however i havent seen any films with niven in and really wasnt interested. eventually i did decide that i may as well read it becuase i had some free time.
I found it initially hard to get into but i perservered and when i got into his hilarious stories about school i was hooked, i couldnt put it down. although i knew nothing about the man or his films i found his entry to hollywood fasinating and was intregued about his relationship with a prostitute.
i am now a die hard fan, i have watched many of his films and am discovering new actors like william powell and carole lobard. His humour and self-depricating descirption were wonderful, i would go as far to say that this man should have wrote books professionally, he is better than many writers today.
i would recomend this book to anyone with our without an interest in hollywood.
