RYAN O’NEAL AND FARRAH FAWCETT.
One of the most storied love affairs in Hollywood history, their romance has captivated fans and media alike for more than three decades. Fans of each other from afar, Ryan and Farrah met through her husband, Lee Majors, and fell passionately in love. Soon, however, reality threatened their happiness and they struggled with some serious matters, including the disintegration of Farrah’s marriage; Ryan’s troubled relationship with his daughter, Tatum, and son, Griffin; mismatched career trajectories; and raising their young son, Redmond—all leading Ryan and Farrah to an inevitable split in 1997.
Ryan fought to create a life on his own but never stopped longing for Farrah. Older and wiser, he and Farrah found their way back to each other and were excited to start a new life together. But their bliss was cut short when Farrah was diagnosed with cancer and passed away just three years later. Ryan’s deep love for Farrah and his devotion to preserving her memory are evident in Both of Us. Download and start listening now!

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Pat Lampe | 2/18/2014

    " I liked this book, from the chatty way it was written to the introspection and the highs and lows of an unusual life. I wish there could be a happy ending. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cindy | 2/8/2014

    " I read this book in 2 sittings. I always liked Ryan O'Neal and Farrah Fawcett. I know his story jumped around but he tells you that at the beginning. The style of writing was as if he was just sitting here and telling me their story. Both the good and the bad. I really enjoyed it! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lu Ann Brobst | 2/2/2014

    " I grew up watching Ryan O 'Neal on Peyton Place, and of course who doesn't remember watching Farrah Fawcett on Charlie's Angels in the 70s? I spent a day last week watching most of the Oprah series about Ryan and his daughter Tatum, so my segue into reading Ryan's book was perfect. I was impressed. He is much more literate than I had given him credit for, the final moments of their relationship before Farrah's death were incredibly touching. I highly recommend the book to their fan base. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tammy | 1/20/2014

    " I have the need to read a biography from time to time. I strangely enjoyed this book. I know the O'Neals argue among themselves. Each accuses the other of lying. But I tried to ignore that. I read this book as a love story, and, as a love story, I found it fun, funny, startling, sad, painful, fascinating.... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sarah | 1/18/2014

    " Though it was a love story it was not a sweet one :( Wish it would have focused more on the good times but it was mostly the bad. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Linda | 1/8/2014

    " Very quick read. Sweet and sad. Cried at the end. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Linda Bechtold | 12/27/2013

    " Not very well written but interesting to hear his side of things. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Meredith | 12/25/2013

    " I read Tatum's books so figured, why not get her dad's side of the story. I listened to the audio book which is read by Ryan. It was a quick, entertaining book to listen to. The ending was really touching and sad. Listening to him talk about Farrah's decline and death, hearing the emotion in his voice.. also his children's struggles with drug addiction is so tragic. I'm not commenting on his parenting skills, obviously there were some real issues. It was a quick read (listen) that was much more interesting than I thought it would be. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jackie | 12/23/2013

    " As a fan of both Farrah's & Ryan's. I enjoyed the insight of their relationship very much. I am glad I read it. I hope Ryan can find happiness in this next part of his life. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Anita Dawson | 11/24/2013

    " Ryan O'Neal recounts his life with Farrah Fawcett. The account was from the heart and you could feel the love dripping from the pages. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stacey | 11/18/2013

    " I enjoyed this book. I was boring a to descriptive in parts, but those parts passed quickly. Everyone should be luck enough to experience one great love in their life. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lisa | 11/17/2013

    " Ryan comes across as a good person in this book. And Farrah is truly lovely. But I learned by watching 15 minutes of Ryan and Tatum's reality show that he is a huge narcissist. Sad. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jen | 7/30/2013

    " I really felt it deserved 1.5 stars but that is not an option. There was too much confusion, not cohesion in this writing. Apparently, their's was a love story with breaks inbetween. I'm not sure what I anticipated when I picked this out at the library but I was not impressed. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Katie | 2/7/2013

    " Although I found some of the book interesting, I just found Ryan O'Neal to be too much of a narcissist. It's clear that since Farrah's death he views her as a bit of a saint. She was only human and certainly not perfect. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Ildy | 1/6/2013

    " My mom loved Ryan O'Neal in Peyton Place and I adored him in Love Story. This book, poorly written, shows again that celebs who look wholesome and happy and heathy, aren't what they appear to be...this is a sad story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tara | 10/16/2012

    " I really feel bad for him, well the way his kids are. He's gone through so much grief with them and it seems like it's still happening.. "

    " I now truly dislike ryan o'neal I thinks he posibly the mot narcissistic person besides micheal moore ive ever read. His spoylight chasing and justification of his awful actions and behavior is at times sickening!!!!!!!! "

    " I actually really liked it. I was surprised. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kim Moore | 6/11/2012

    " I loved Farrah and think her and Ryan are a modern day love story..this book was great! Great insight into their lives, and Ryan takes responsibility for things he did wrong. We all know the end to this story, and hearing it in his words made me cry and cry! Great book! "
