Principali recensioni dei clienti

Formato: Copertina flessibile
Se c'è qualcuno che vuole avvicinarsi ai fratelli Marx e capire la loro storia e come sono arrivati a essere Groucho, Chico e Harpo, questo è decisamente il libro fatto per lui.
Cominciando dal fatto che Harpo sceglie di scrivere in maniera leggera, mai banale, veloce nel seguire tutte le peripezie che sono accadute alla famiglia Marx, e di sicuro questa scelta di linguaggio è vincente. Ma è vincente anche il fatto che questo libro non è affatto la solita autobiografia di una star sul viale del tramonto: nel libro è chiaro l'intento di Harpo di condividere con il lettore quelle grandi emozioni che l'hanno investito durante tutti gli anni.
Harpo Speaks è un libro divertente, commovente, di sicuro un grande libro, scritto da un grande uomo.
Raccomandatissimo!

Bellissima autobiografia che, oltre a ricostruire approfonditamente la personalità del più silenzioso dei fratelli Marx, ci porta all'interno della vita professionale di questi grandissimi comici, mostrandoci il loro modo di lavorare e il modo in cui sono nate alcune delle loro gag più spassose.

5.0 su 5 stelle Fascinating and endearing account of a bygone world 26 novembre 2015
Di Amazon Customer - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
Others summarize the book well enough that I don't need to do it. I love good stories about people - how they survive, how they learn, how they feel about things and how they see the world. Harpo's life is amazing, and he shares a view of the U.S. and the world that most of us never hear or read about: the days of Vaudeville, the depression, the realities of crime and politics for the working class, pre-war Russia and Germany, the esoteric workings of exclusive clubs and societies. His humility is endearing, as is his ability to talk in depth about so many famous people, their quirks and foibles, and still leave an impression of humanity and charm. No spite. No cruelty. No dirty laundry.
I have read biographies and memoirs by celebrities still living, and been completely turned off by their egotism and pointless name-dropping.
Harpo's love of the people he lived with, worked with, played games and gambled with feels honest. As a fan of Oscar Levant, I was touched by Harpo's accounts of the time they spent together. No one is perfect. No one is altogether sane, rational, or "normal."
The way he speaks of his wife is probably the only element I found a little odd, as if a lot was being left out, obscuring the full picture. Still, it's his book, his story, the way he wants to say it.
I'm just glad it's there for the rest of us to enjoy.

5.0 su 5 stelle Without a doubt my favorite memoir 12 settembre 2015
Di true britty - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
I don't know why I love this book so much. I love it the way some people love puppies or rain storms or sunsets. It is a natural wonder and I still daydream about it years after my first reading.

Just to let you know, I read it in a car on a cross-country journey. When I was at the wheel and couldn't read, I thought about it.

Harpo was born in 1888 (Can you believe that long ago?) He was the second oldest child of Frenchie, a kind-hearted tailor who was good at many things except tailoring, and Minnie. Minnie was the driving force in the family. Her brother was a famous vaudevillian. So when her family needed money (Frenchie really was not a good tailor), she turned her boys into a vaudeville act. She was part of the act early on, and I think Gummo. But the lineup gelled with Chico (pronounced Chick-o, not Cheek-o), Harpo and Groucho, with youngest brother Zeppo added later and cast as the romantic, good-looking Marx in the earliest movies.

Harpo begins his story in the heated, loud atmosphere of turn-of-the-century New York. The streets were teeming with recent immigrants, among which were the older Marx family members. He really brings this era to life and there is an incredible scene in which he describes how the poor kids caught the Giants games from a hill.

Some of the best writing is devoted to his wonderfully quirky and loving family. Chico can't stay away from the chicks and the cards. Groucho has a fork for a tongue and a secret wish to be an author. Frenchie is bungling customer orders, but everyone likes him too much to make a fus. Minnie is holding the family together and making plans for the future.

Harpo is his own best character. He loves harp, is really tight with Chico and, when they finally start performing in vaudeville, gets booed when he delivers lines like lead balloons. That experience led him to develop the puckish mute persona familiar to fans of the movies.

There is too much in the book to waste your time telling you about it. How can you describe a book that is pure joy? But Harpo was there the early immigrant experience, the heyday of vaudeville, the first talkies, the golden years of Hollywood, the Roaring Twenties, the Algonquin Club, the Depression and the Cold War. He captures all of it with an insider's eye for anecdote.

One of the best scenes takes place on a boat in Oct. 1929 when he loses everything but his shirt in the stock market crash. He and the others with him play a game that gets referenced near the end of the book in a poignant and utterly happenstance reunion.

When Harpo died, his brothers felt a crushing loss. Those who knew him did because he was that rare light that made the world around him a brighter, warmer place. When I finished the book, I felt the sun go down inside me.

5.0 su 5 stelle What a wonderful book about a wonderful man and his family and ... 25 gennaio 2017
Di Susie Q - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
What a wonderful book about a wonderful man and his family and friends! It was a rollercoaster ride through Harpo's life with all its zaniness and ups and downs. His remarkable mother, Minnie was a delightful influence on him and his brothers. His cheerfulness and sunny disposition were a big part of his successful life. The chapter on Oscar Levant was hilarious. This book makes you feel like you were privileged to peek into his private life. A decent man and a fine father, husband, and a true friend, Harpo Marx was!

5.0 su 5 stelle Simply the best show business autobiography 27 aprile 2016
Di N. Rogers - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
Having read this book, it's safe to say that Harpo must have been the nicest man ever to live in Hollywood, and the most interesting. The book provides a window into ways of life that have long disappeared: the immigrant slums of New York, the vaudeville circuit and the Roaring Twenties. Thanks to his friendliness, he was a companion to a who's who of famous people - from George Bernard Shaw to George S Kaufmann. There is even an hilarious story about Arnold Shonberg. The book is simply fascinating and entertaining cover to cover.
5.0 su 5 stelle Sensitive, Insightful and Beautiful! 22 gennaio 2016
Di Pete - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
An absolutely amazing book on so many levels! The view of early 20th century New York from a flat broke Jewish child's perspective alone makes this a worthy read. Early vaudeville, Broadway, the roaring 20's, the Algonquin Round Table and a who's who of brilliant and entertaining characters all join as supporting cast to this sensitive, insightful and beautiful autobiography/memoir.

Beware the Kindle version, however. The images are poor and there is a multitude of irritating typos. After reading the Kindle version, I went out and purchased multiple hard copies of the book; one for myself and the others as gifts.
