Too Much Is Not Enough: A Memoir of Fumbling Toward Adulthood based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
Good example of how a memoir can end up being a really enjoyable read even if if you don't know much about the person prior to reading. Loved the use of humor in this one and the stories of what led him to getting his first big break on Broadway. After graduating high school, Andrew Rannells left his hometown of Omaha and moved to New York City with dreams of having an acting career. In this book Andrew shares stories of getting involved with community theater as a kid, coming to terms with being gay in Middle America, and surviving in a city that is full of people with the exact same hopes and dreams of making it big in the acting world. Andrew is just a really good storyteller. There's a nice balance of humor and heart throughout the book. He's an easy person to relate to as he shared his feelings of not having a clue at what he was doing most of the time and just kinda had to learn along the way. Your heart breaks when he goes into detail about the times he was taken advantage of by sexual predators. When he starts to experience some success, you can't help but feel happy for him. Overall, a good memoir and I would love reading another book in which he talks about his life after making it big. I received a free advance copy from the publisher but was under no obligation to post a review. All views expressed are my honest opinion.
