My thoughts on this book:
This is a very short biography about Tom Hanks by author Chris Dicker. When I came across this book I couldn’t wait to read it because Tom Hanks is one of my personal favorites and I wanted to learn more about him, so I entered the giveaway at Librarything.com and won a copy.
It’s a good general biography and offers many facts about Tom Hanks that I didn’t know previously. Readers will learn about how he grew up, including some of his struggles and failures, his political status, what’s important to him, his income earned for the movies he’s acted in, and more.
This biography has many straight forward facts, but maybe too basic for some readers. Many facts are listed in a format that make it a little redundant and humdrum at times. There were also some editing issues, however, I did still like it and think it would be an ideal resource for students writing a paper or for someone just looking for some general facts about him.
This is a new to me author and I noticed there are many other biographies written by this author. I look forward to checking some of those out as well.
