Along the Way: The Journey of a Father and Son

My book for June was Along the Way: The Journey of a Father and Son by Martin Sheen, Emilio Estevez and Hope Edelman. I finished the book on the flight to Seattle. The book is a dual memoir. Martin Sheen and his son Emilio Estevez recount their lives in alternating chapters.

Sharon gave me the book for Christmas. She had listen to the audio book and really liked it. On the audio book, Sheen and Estevez read their respective chapters.

Several chapters of the book follow Esteves's filming of the The Way. Sharon and I watched this movie several years ago.

I give the book a lukewarm "B". I enjoyed the early chapters in the book and the section detailing the filming of The Way. Their first hand accounts of the filming of Apocalypse Now are pretty amazing! I just didn't find the last part of the book as compelling or well written as some of the earlier sections.
