Summary What's It All About Michael Caine µ 4 Summary Read & Download What's It All About 104 For than 25 years Michael Caine has remained one of the few enduring stars of international stage and cinema a rar. I was once asked in an interview How would you sum up your life in one line and I answered All my dreams came true I don t read many celebrity autobiographies Of the countless books I ve read there s been maybe 3 Or 4 if John Stuart Mill counts as a celebrity Perhaps he did but not since he broke up with Kim KardashianMichael Caine is one of my favourite actors I even enjoy some of his bad movies or at least his movies that other people consider bad like Blue Ice And for some reason I just love the way he talks So if I was ever going to read another celebrity autobiography it was hisI knew almost nothing about Michael Caine s life outside movies before I read this so I was able to be suitably surprised at the places he s been and the things he s done He s had a great life and an interesting one and I m sure he s still having a great life right now If you ve ever seen him being interviewed you may have an idea of how he speaks he writes just like that It s always easy to hear his voice while reading his book It s a good voice If you have the idea that all celebrity autobiographies are ghostwritten you can rest assured that this is written by the real Michael Caine My hyperactive bullshit detectors decided this on the first pageAs an aside I m not against ghostwritten autobiographies In many cases it s no doubt for the best A good writer who s spoken with the subject or seen some interviews is probably better able to express that person s life in their authentic voice than the person who lived itThis is the story of Maurice pronounced Morris Micklewhite a poor kid from the south of London who dreamed of becoming a movie star and made it after years of struggle He survived the Blitz and poverty and the Korean war and years of being a struggling actor constantly in danger of going to jail for failing to pay child support all the while sticking to his improbable dream As time wore on some of his like minded friends found fame and fortune making Michael think he d missed the boat and some stricken by poverty and hopelessness thought it would never happen and killed themselvesThe first few hundred pages of What s It All About recounting those years of struggle are uite different to the rest of the book I think this is largely because they re an excellent version of the rags to riches story one of those archetypal narratives the seven basic plots These pages are also much better written than most of the rest of the book More care seems to have been taken with them either by the author or an editor or proofreader In a few passages Michael really brings to life London in the swinging sixties communicating the spirit of that place and time as well as anyone ever has in just a few paragraphs These passages led me to lengthy contemplations of why the city I live in could never be home to a cultural revolution like 1960s London In summary 1 the basic necessities of life are so expensive that few creative people can pursue a dream for the time it takes to learn a craft and get lucky because they must either get a regular energy and soul sucking job or become homeless 2 There s nowhere for fun creative people to hang out and meet as all the night clubs are run by and for awful people The occasional foreshadowings of Michael s future life as a celebrity movie star which are injected into his poverty stricken youth show that he knows exactly how to leaven the potentially depressing content with hints that it all turned out all right in the end Also these flashforwards to the celebrity life could be seen as bones thrown to those movie fans who want to know why this book about movies is all about poor people being bombed by NazisPerhaps it s easier to write well when you re writing a story that fits one of those seven basic plots Perhaps the terrible deadline that oppressed Michael as he wrote the book he mentions it several times led to some haste After Michael becomes rich and famous the book seems less artfully constructed prone to clich d expressions inclined to include dinners and meetings and trips and films that don t seem book worthy In anyone else s book I d wince at some of those clich s but because they sound perfectly natural in Michael Caine s conversational voice I was able to accept them in his book A couple of times I thought after several attempts at an incomprehensibly ungrammatical sentence If you or anyone else had re read that before sending this book to the printer it would be a very different sentence now After fame strikes the book stops being a great story and becomes a series of anecdotes many of them great and some only OK A lot of them are about movies and your enjoyment may depend on whether you have seen those movies The uality of the writing often seems proportional to the author s emotional investment in the story he s telling making me wonder if the most important stories the personal ones were all written first and finessed and proofread and the rest of the book was written uickly to meet a deadlineI ve seen a lot of Michael Caine s movies than half I guess and I largely read this because I like a lot of them so it was interesting that I liked the book best when Michael wasn t talking about movies After he becomes famous the best stories are about his beautiful wife Shakira I loved the story of how they met He s also very good at expressing his love of the great homes he s lived in and I can t think of any book that has expressed this aspect of life the joy of living in a really great house so well as this one

Summary What's It All About Michael Caine µ 4 Summary Read & Download What's It All About 104 E and remarkable achievement Now with easy charm and humor the Academy Award winning actor brings to life his lean. Michael Caine s memoirs were absolutely fascinating for the first eighty to a hundred pages but after that the next thirty or so it starts falling flat I m sure I could have forced myself past that and re kindled my interest but I simply don t have the motivation The stories are amusing and you can t help but hear Michael Caine s voice while you read but while he s certainly had an interesting life even before the acting career he starts to get bogged down in too many detailsI usually don t find that to be a problem with what I m reading and I m rarely able to put down even a mediocre book down before I ve finished it That s just not the way I usually work However I ve recently realized that I m only ever going to be able to read a fraction of the books that I want to life is just too short to read this bookNot that I m saying other people shouldn t read it I think a lot of Michael Caine fans will absolutely love this book it s just not my cup of tea
