This book was not for me. What I mean is, I wasn’t its intended audience.
It was right there in the title, The Actor’s Life: A Survival Guide and that is exactly who Jenna Fischer geared her book towards. Don’t get me wrong I enjoyed the book, though I feel that had I been an aspiring actor I would have found it more beneficial and would have probably related to it more. The upside is that I adore Jenna Fischer and I enjoyed listening to her audio book about her experiences as an aspiring actor. I just won’t be using any of her advice for myself, but that doesn’t mean it wouldn’t be useful for someone else. Someone who you know…actually wants to be an actor.
For anyone who knows me the fact that the second I saw This is Me come up under my recommendations on Audible I downloaded it isn’t shocking. Chrissy Metz plays Kate on the beloved television series This Is Us and to say that I am obsessed with this show and specifically Kate’s journey would be a vast understatement. While this show may leave me as a melted puddle of tears after each and every episode, it is quite simply magic.
