O Africa by Andrew Lewis Conn My Review
O Africa by Andrew Lewis Conn a novel about a changing time in the movie industry wrapped around the lives of two brothers who are successful in the silent era trying to keep their success in talkies.
This book is about
the movie industry when it is going from silent movies to talkies. It is about
two brothers, one who isbold, outrageous
and always taking chances who is a director while his brother is more introverted,
afraid to rock the boat so to speak, and he is the camera man who does the
shoots for the movies he and his brother make. They get sent to Africa to
shoot film that then can be sold to other pictures and studios to use in their
movies. A new way to make money for their production company and partners.
Africa seems to be trouble for them and a lot of problems arise for them.
I never give a bad
review but I must say I was disappointed by this book. I was hoping to have it
more about the movie industry and less about their dysfunctional personal
life.This is not a book for me, but
maybe others might like it. I can not recommend it.What little it talked about the movie
industry is good but it seems to be more about the sexual exploits,and trouble the two can get in than the
industry of making movies in an era of change for the industry.I won't be reading anymore books by this
