5.0 out of 5 stars A quick, heart-warming, very funny read, 8 Jan 2008
This review is from: 700 Sundays (Paperback)
This book was recommended by a close-friend with a similar taste in books & must say, even though it didn't massively appeal to me, I am very glad he did.

I can't say I'm a big fan of Billy Crystal - I've enjoyed his performances in the handful of movies I've watched of his & although find him to be a likable guy, I would never have usually read any acccount of his life. It subsequently came as a pleasant surprise to thoroughly enjoy this story of his early years with his father.

The book is quite simply a tale of Billy's childhood years up until his father passed away when he was a boy, hence the touching & clever title, 700 Sundays - the number of Sunday's spent with his beloved father. The book contains larger-than-life personalities (some very famous), hilarious anecdotes & stories ranging from everyday life to Billy's first steps to becoming a world famous comedian.

The relatively short length of the book ensures that every page is a delight to read and I'd recommend this to anyone that enjoys a good laugh or cry or anything of an auto-biographical nature.
