this year i keep uncovering for myself such genres as memoirs and as a true fan of the movie industry and in particular of mcconaughey, once my eye fell upon this book i couldn’t help reading it. it took me more than two weeks to finish, even though it's not that big, but as with any other autobiography i’ve ever read, i decided again to take my time and take the book up pretty slowly.
though it was a bit more than i'd expected from a memoir, it left me quite satisfied. the significant part of the narrative is a kind of self-help book that sometimes made me confused and angry. however, i kept reminding myself that me and mcconaughey are distinctive personalities and between us, there’s at least two and half decades of past life and unique experience. if i can sympathise with my parents who are the same age as him, then i can understand sir mcconaughey (or just overlook it and ignore it).
overall, i truly enjoyed this book! i loved the pictures, countless bumper stickers with quotes, and especially, that concept of greenlights. though the picture of them might become my nightmare. the storytelling was fantastic and striking. i loved to bury myself into the stories from his background and enter the inner sanctum of his movie career. i also was completely astonished by his poems and i indeed quoted every page of the narrative.
i've adored mcconaughey as an actor, i’ve also heard something about him as a philanthropist and as a founder of ‘just keep livin’, and now i’ve got a chance to get to know him as a human being. it’s so breathtaking to realise that he is the same ordinary, yet unique one as we all on this planet.
