Description du produit

Présentation de l'éditeur

In Its Not What You Think Chris Evans had written himself a recipe for success. He was poised on the brink of seeing it become a reality. All the right ingredients were there: he was rich, famous; now he was the owner of his own radio station and media company. What could possibly go wrong? As it turned out, the answer was everything…well almost.

In It’s Not What You Think Chris Evans had seemingly found the recipe for success. He was rich, famous, and now the owner of his own radio station and media company. What could possibly go wrong? As it turned out, the answer was everything…well almost.

When we left our loveable ginger hero at the end of It's Not What You Think, it looked like Chris had made it. But things were about to take a very dark turn. Soon Chris’s childhood dreams of a job in radio lay in tatters, and as an endless drink-fuelled lifestyle began to take its toll, he plunged into a downward spiral so deep that escape seemed almost impossible.

And then his salvation appeared, in the form of a young singer called Billie Piper.

Told with the same wit, verve and startling honesty that surprised and delighted readers of It’s Not What You Think, this is the final part – for now – of Chris Evans’s journey of self discovery.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Evans Shares Everything Warts and All 28 avril 2014

Chris Evans' Memoirs Of A Fruitcake begins where his first book It's Not What You Think ends. Evans is purchasing his own radio station to continue his successful morning radio career and he could not be happier or at least he thinks.

The second book uses the same format as first one. Each chapter starts with a clever top ten list with number one being the main story of the chapter. Again the stories are told with humor sometimes at the expense of the author himself.

There were a few differences between the two books. First Evans seemed to be more open about his private life with this book than he was in the first and maybe that was due to just where he was in his life or it was he felt more comfortable with the writing process at this point. Also the first book was very formulaic and, while telling great stories, it didn't get the reader invested in his life. In this book the reader is taken on a roller coaster ride with Evans in both his personal and professional life. By the end of the book the reader is rooting for Evans to succeed in both areas. The last area that I thought was a departure from the first book was that Evans shared a lot more celebrity friends stories than he did the first time around. I don't know if it was because he was running more in those circle now or if, once again, he was feeling more comfortable with the writing process.

I found Evans frank discussion of his drinking very interesting and would be a good section of the book to give to a twenty-one year old to read about the dangers that come with drinking. Evans never admits, nor do I think he believes, that he is an alcoholic but does admit that his drinking was very out of control and he is ashamed of how it affected his daily life. I also found the chapter when Evans comes to the conclusion that his marriage to actress/pop singer Billie Piper a very gripping and heartbreaking section. This section shows how difficult it can be to end a marriage but also how it can be the correct decision for both people. Evans talks about the emotion at the time and how emotional it is for him writing about it again. The reader can feel the emotion coming through the writing.

This is a book that most people could pick up and read without reading the first book because Evans does a good job of filling in details when needed. I would recommend reading both and if buying as an ebook I noticed a bundle of both books online. Both are easy to read and enjoyable even if the reader does not know the work of Chris Evans.

I didn't have a particular positive opinion of the author prior to reading the book. But his frank self analysis turned me round. I am definitely buying his next book

Interesting story, though not that well written,i probably couldn't do any better. I guess if you are famous enough you can get away with trying your hand at writing

I wouldn't say I was a Chris Evans fan but he's a character I've always found entertaining. I read this book on holiday and couldn't put it down. It's a grat read.
