Andre stories worth the price
Terrific book. The stories about Andre the Giant are worth the price of admission.
Being one of the 5 college kids to not only see this movie at the time of its release, but see it 5 times in 4 days, I truly enjoyed this book. I read it in two sittings, and am sure I will read it again soon. I laughed out loud, and cried real tears. Being a superfan, I was swept into the tales, and felt I was part of it somehow. As a fan I thank you Man in black.
Really insightful and heartwarming
The movie is in my collection, and I would watch it on and off to smile. Now, I have an insight into its making and of the people in it. Now, I smile even more when I watch it.
It's a definite "must have" for one's collection.
