    The Distance traveled makes love stronger

    I enjoyed Andrew as a movie actor, more in a movie "The Christmas Tree" made for TV with Julie Harris.
    Now after reading The Longest Way Home, I believe he was destined to be a writer.
    The book is like the writer, it has all the signs of a person who has experienced many easy and not-so easy chapters in his life.
    How he described his travels with/without his family, the places he visited and the people he met are unique and different.
    I was moved by certain parts about his father, but from the book he really appears to love and respect his children and wife. Bob Woods

    An Andrew McCarthy that's different from his movie characters

    In general I love reading autobiographies, and I loved this one as well. I was expecting a more confident, social and carefree individual like all the characters Andrew McCarthy seems to play in movies. Wrong. This book is no Weekend at Bernies! It's a serious personal emotional/physical journey with very interesting destinations. McCarthy is a very gifted travel writer, and is so deliciously descriptive that I felt like I was standing next to him the entire time. His catharsis can be a tad taxing at times, but I recommend sticking with him and seeing it all play out. It's worth the effort.
