Still Growing- mini review



Title: Still Growing-mini-review

Author: Kirk Cameron

Date Finished: February 4, 2010

Personal Book Count: 8 out of 100

Rating: 4 out of 5

Genre/ Subject: autobiography

First Line: I reached for the rubber knob on my cassette player and cranked Prince to the max.

Why did I pick this book?: I heard that he wrote a book (I think he was on a talk show?) and it peaked my interest.

Summary and Review: Sitcom child actor grows up and tells about his life in the business. I did watch Growing Pains when I was growing up, and later the Left Behind movies. It is always interesting to me to hear the background, in between stuff, especially when it comes from the horse’s mouth. I know it sounds corny, but this book did make me laugh, and cry. There were many bits I read to my husband when I was reading through the book, that made us go hunh, or even laugh. And telling my mom the story of Camp Firefly I found my self so touched, I ended up crying. I will say it was very thick with the ‘religious stuff’ at the end. Although he was being very honest about his life and his views, I could see how this could be very off putting. All around an entertaining read I could pick up and put down as time allowed. =D

Agree? Disagree? Recommendations? Any insights, suggestions, or comments on the book or format, or blog at all are most welcome. If you have read this and/ or review it yourself, please let me know. Can you think of any books like this? Give me a recommendation! =D

I had no idea Kirk wrote a book. I will have to look for it now. I loved Kirk back in the GP days. I also saw a couple of his movies.

Thanks for mentioning this book :)
