My Anecdotal Life
I finished reading Carl Reiner's autobiographical book, My Anecdotal Life and thought I would give it a mini-review. Overall, I enjoyed it and it was a quick read. The stories were entertaining, but not as funny as I expected. The title sums up the content. This is not a complete biography, but rather a book of anecdotes. I'm a long time fan of Carl Reiner, so this was nice, but not great. I hope he writes a full biography, because I have a feeling I will enjoy reading about his life in its entirety more than just a few disjointed vignettes. The stories are good, but the book is just a little disappointing.
