I enjoyed most of this book, but Charlie Chaplin could have used a good editor. At first I thought he was just trying to sound smart. He used the word,"supercilious" at least 7 times. He had a rough early life and educated himself and for that he is to be applauded. He describes events in his life and the people who were in his life with him, but he does not reveal many real emotions and he seems to cover up a lot with big words. When I go back and watch youtube videos after listening to his book; it is then that I can see the charm this man had on film and with people.A marvelous comic/writer /actor/composer--but a very long narrative.
