Book Review: GREENLIGHTS (⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️) by Matthew McConaughey
Memoir by Matthew McConaughey.
Well, hmmmm, what to say about Matthew’s memoir… First of all, I’m not a mega-fan or anything but gave it a listen anyway because so many were raving about it. One of my first thoughts while listening (and I’d highly recommend listening since he’s the narrator) was, who knew Matthew was such a deep thinker? I love that he’s kept diaries for much of his life and that he was brave enough to share them. I was also intrigued by his use of greenlights and how a red or yellow light can often later turn green.
”Persist, pivot, or concede. It’s up to us. Our choice. Every time.”
I found many of his stories amusing, touching, and laugh out loud funny. His childhood sounds pretty wild and unconventional, but yet, he seems to take it all in stride and loves his parents and siblings fiercely. I could have done without all the pooping references and the details about how three major wet dreams guided his decisions (what?!), but overall, it was entertaining in a trippy sort of way!
And, in case you’re wondering… YES. He did say it. More than once. “All right, all right, all right!”
Would I recommend it? Greenlight!
