I haven’t actually seen all that many films that Bruce Campbell has been in. Yes I know he’s been in the Evil Dead series and many others, I however mainly know him from the occasional appearance in the X-Files and guest spots on Xena (blame Michèle). I’d heard good things about Campbell’s autobiography and I’d been interested in reading it, so I obviously bought it for my sister. Thankfully I could then borrow it so it all worked out well!
I thoroughly enjoyed the book. Campbell writes very engagingly and is very funny. I was laughing out loud on a regular basis and kept stopping to read bits of the book to Michèle, much to her “delight”. It may seem like a minor point, however the number of pictures Campbell puts into the book, in the text not grouped together in the middle, really does enhance the book, bringing it to life.
If I’d seen more of Campbell’s films I may have enjoyed it more but I still enjoyed it thoroughly. Nothing however will make me see McHale’s Navy which sounds absolutely awful.
