Did you know that Tom Hanks was also a writer? I had not known until I found this gem in a used book store. Uncommon Type contains 17 short stories that can be read on their own. Some are loosely connected through their protagonists and all of them feature a typewriter in some capacity or other. There is the unlikely relationship between a high-energy woman and a laid-back man, there is time traveling, there is the kid growing up after his parents separated, there are war veterans, there is the immigrant to the United States, there is a couple that owns a roadside motel in a deserted area of land, and so much more.

All of the stories provide slices of life that take you in almost instantly and make you turn the pages. I loved the writing, I loved the characters and I loved the plots of the stories. After each story I found myself hoping it would not end so soon and continue just a little more. This, however, does not subtract from the quality of the reading experience. Rather, it makes you wonder and stay in the world that was created in the stories a little longer. I really found myself rooting for some of the characters and have grown quite fond of them. I am really glad that I found this book. 5 stars.

The Making of Another Major Motion Picture Masterpiece by Tom Hanks tells of how a movie is made, from the idea of a talented five-years-old to its release. Mr. Hanks’ fictionalize account is certainly eye opening and entertaining.

Little Robby Andersen has always heard about his uncle Bob Falls, a WWII vet who served as a flamethrower and was struck with PTSD. One day Uncle Bob comes riding in on his bike and leaves a huge impression on the talented Robby who bases a comic-book anti-hero on him when he grows up.

Decades later, Hollywood’s hottest director Bill Johnson buys the rights to Firefall, Bobby Anderson’s comic, for making a movie. Together with assistants, actors, technicians, and locals Johnson starts filming Knightshade: The Lathe of Firefall in Lone Butte, CA – which is, unbeknownst to him, Bobby Anderson’s hometown.

I’ve enjoyed Mr. Hanks previous book, Uncommon Type, and when I heard he is writing a book about making movies, I was excited to find out what it’s all about. I do enjoy reading about movie-making in general, even though it seems that the books are much more exciting than the actual process.

The Making of Another Major Motion Picture Masterpiece by Tom Hanks is an exciting journey into what it takes to make a movie. From the inspiration of the writer as a young boy, to the movie star vying for the role, and the directory, producers, and a congregation of professionals who tackle obstacles daily.

I thought the novelization of movie making made the process a lot more interesting, capturing the energy, excitement, and mechanics which gets lost in non-fiction accounts. The author’s unique perspective about the behind-the-scenes folks and their unseen contributions are fascinating as they are informative.

Producer Al Mac-Teer (Alicia) and a ride-share driver Ynez Gonzalez-Cruz who becomes instrumental in the production, were, for me, the two most interesting characters. All the of the cast, however, gets a developed with a background story from Lane Wren, the movies star who’s afraid of being stuck as a sex-symbol, to Bailey who represents the Hollywood superego which almost destroys the production, from the makeup artists to the teamsters.

The author, as we all know, is one of the nicest people in the world, and the book has endearing subplots which help to bring the story, and the movie, together. The movies are meant to be a shared experience, delighting audiences, sometimes even makes us think even in a superhero films (which I love).

The ending at Times Square cinema, while corny is still a moving bit and appropriate. Kudos to
Robert Sikoryak who illustrated the graphic novel, included in the book, which the brought fame to the fictional Robby Andersen, and is brought to live by a team of fantasy-makers.
