Synopsis

A scene taken straight from Rob Lowe’s New York Times bestselling memoir, Stories I Only Tell My Friends, a wryly funny and surprisingly moving account of an extraordinary life lived almost entirely in the public eye.
 
In Socs and Greasers, Lowe tells us what it was like to work on the set of The Outsiders, a film that helped launch the careers of many of today’s biggest stars, including Tom Cruise, Patrick Swayze, Matt Dillon, Emilio Estevez, Ralph Macchio, C. Thomas Howell, and Rob Lowe himself.

Interesting yet Dry

It was a good read because it allowed its reader to experience the time period and difficulties filming the movie The Outsiders. Yet it was only told by one character which limits the scope of review one could give this book.

This excerpt made me want to read the whole book, which I guess is the point. Love that he shares some Forest Gump-type meetings he had with then unknowns like Darryl Hannah.

Socs and Greasers...
February 20th, 2013
I really liked it. I know you don't get the whole book with the idea that you read some of it and are left wanting more. Well, it worked. I really want to read more, but can't afford it. That's why I downloaded this book, (story. ) I enjoyed this a lot and hope to read more from Mr. Lowe in the future.
