I was never a big fan of Roger Ebert the movie critic, as most of the time I didn't agree with his opinion on many movies. That said, I did enjoy this story which is a memoir about Roger Ebert the man. When he wrote about himself growing up, being an alcoholic, dating, getting a job at the Chicago Sun Times, his dreams, goals, successes and failures I was quite interested.
Roger has the writing style of taking a point from the beginning and following it to the end, then taking the next point and doing it again. There were a few parts of the book that were not interesting to me such as his detailed discussions of interviewing famous celebrities. That said, I don't find celebrities to be interesting just because of their status, but that might just be me.
Roger ends the book discussing his relationship with Gene Siskel, his wife and finally his own cancer which eventually ended his life. Kudos to the reader who did a great job narrating the book. This book is worth listening to.
