Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Donna | 10/8/2013

    " I had always liked Steve McQueen as an actor ad loved his blue eyes. This books reveals the demons that he lived with and that eventually caused his death. An interesting read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Stefanie | 8/15/2013

    " I love Steve McQueen. Yeah, he was a bit of an asshat. But whatever. This author is incredibly boring and seems to despise his subject. If you don't like him, don't write about him. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tom | 5/14/2013

    " As much as McQueen is revered in popular culture, he was a bastard in real life. Eliot details all the self-centered, narcissistic behavior McQueen focused on at least his first two wives (Neile Adams, Ali McGraw) - maybe he didn't have time with the third one. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Nadine Haney | 3/22/2013

    " So boring, didn't finish it. The author liked lists. Movie, every actor and what they played in before. S. McQueen might be a good actor, but i didn't like him as a person. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 David | 1/29/2013

    " McQueen wasn't the easiest subject for a biography, hence my two-star rating. Eliot wasn't able to offer much more about his subject than the public already knows; McQueen was a druggie, womanizer, and a generally unpleasant sort who suffered from a bad case of celebrity-itis. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mike Hood | 11/30/2012

    " After reading this you may walk away with a different view of him. But you cannot deny him as an actor or a force in the industry. Good bio- sad life. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jill | 10/8/2012

    " Steve McQueen= nice to look at, but not nice to be around. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Aaron | 8/21/2012

    " Just finished listening to this book. It was very insightful. When it started, I couldn't wait to learn more. As it continued on, I hoped it would speed up. If I were a bigger McQueen fan, I'd probably love this book. It was good and well written, but I am not the target audience. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carol | 8/19/2012

    " I enjoyed this detailed look at McQueen's professional and private life. He used his charisma and charm to great advantage both on and off screen, but he was a stinker. A complex, gorgeous man with low self esteem is a dangerous combination. Very entertaining. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Stacy Bearse | 6/18/2012

    " Disappointing. Very little original reporting. Lots of facts compiled from many sources, some accurate, others less so. I didn't enjoy the author's style, or his penchant for titillating innuendo. McQueen led an imperfect life, but his memory doesn't merit this sub-par effort. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Marta | 12/16/2011

    " It gave too much info on movie plots. I can watch the movie myself for that, it does not need to be in the biography. I felt that the author was just trying to fill the page. "
