Me Cheeta - The Autobiography
Review - Unusual for me to post twice in one day but I wanted to get this one done. A bit like how I felt about finishing the book.
An 'autobiography' of Cheeta, a leading light in the Tarzan movies. When I first started the book I thought, oh good, this will be very funny. Initially it held that promise and seemed to run in a similar vein to David Niven's tales with all intimate details of what the stars really got up to. However, half way through it started to pall and I begun to get bored. I did persevere and half heartedly managed to finish the book. I was disappointed because it had pretty good reviews but it wasn't all it was cracked up to be. I think it could have been condensed and still wouldn't lose anything. 2*
