    1. I am a Robert Downey Jr. fan, but I was disappointed in this biography of his life. I can't decide which was worse, the writing or the narration (of the audiobook). A colorful subject deserves a colorful, talented author and this book did not deliver.

    2. "This audiobook was provided by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review courtesy of AudiobookBlast dot com." I found the book interesting however I did not enjoy the style of writing or maybe the narration. Not sure. Because it was an audio book I found it harder to decipher if it was the narrator or someone else talking. I did not realize just how much time RDJ spent in jail, nor the extent of the beatings the prisoners gave him. I also forgot that he wa [...]

    3. I found this audio book quite enjoyable and fascinating. The narrator did a wonderful job at keeping things interesting. I had my reservations at first but quickly found myself fully engrossed in the story--a testament to good narration. I knew going into this book, that I would be in for a great story as I knew bits about him given all the gossip magazines I tend to pick up from time to time. Of course, these tend to highlight all things negative and leave out the more personal accounts of thei [...]

    4. The biography of Robert Downey jr. Was great at shedding light into the unknown areas of his life.The element of the third person story telling was very nice for this kind of book it helped understanding what was going on a bit easier.An example of this is when he was relapsing from the drugs he went to a club and the DJ offered Downey drugs so they went to his hotel room and did cocaine. The way Martin Howden describes what they did really helps you under stand what that does to someone like hi [...]

    5. I gave this two stars simply because I didn't feel anything as I was reading. It felt very cold, a series of comments and anecdotes.

    6. Told a great story about Robert Downey Jr. It did not leave out the bad parts. I really enjoyed it. I am more of an autobiographical person but this was okay.
