Well written and very interesting
I bought this title because I saw Tab Hunter conduct a few promo's for it and thought he sounded like an interesting guy who had lived through some very interesting times. Of course he has, and they are documented here. The writing style is very easy to read and the format is straightforward narrative in chronological fashion. Mr. Hunter sometimes leaves a clue as to how one event will impact - come back to haunt or happily surprise - him at a later time, other times he relays how a particular event affected him at the time. For a history of middle American mores at mid-century, and that relationship with movies, movies stars, and movie studios, this is a great book. The book does not read like a salacious tell all gossip. Sometimes it almost feels like Mr. Hunter is reluctant to discuss his feelings about relationships or events. This does not hurt the book at all. It seems he is not a very self-reflective sort, so he relates events and relationships with remembrances of how he felt about them at the time, with little analysis or much judgement. It all makes for a very good read about a very physical, athletic, attractive man who was manufactured into a 1950's movie star. And lived to tell about it!
