Nicholson: A Biography by Marc Eliot
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Jack Nicholson. A huge name in Hollywood. Linked to famous movies such as The Shining, and One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest,
was once a normal boy from New Jersey with dreams to be famous. Then a normal man, living in LA, trying to find his way to stardom. Marc Eliot paints a intimate portrait of the life of One of Hollywood's elite.
I'm not a huge fan of biographies. It takes me forever to read them. It wasn't that this one wasn't well written, it's that way with all biographies. I'm a fan of Mr. Nicholson, but not as big as my mom. She is mainly the reason I choose this book. I plan to give it to her as a gift.
