I’ll Be Damned: How My Young and Restless Life Led Me to America’s #1 Daytime Drama
To most people, Eric Braeden is known as Victor from the daytime drama All My Children. What most people may not know is the strength and character of a man who went from being born in Nazi Germany to his star-studded life as a popular American television actor. In I’ll Be Damned, Eric holds nothing back as he details his story.
Eric speaks frankly of his childhood, and then his dream of coming to America, as well as the incredibly difficult work facing him once he got to America (including his name change). Eric also uses the memoir to speak about his platform–one of peace when it comes to Germany.
I want to thank Harper Collins/Dey Street for allowing me the opportunity to read this book in exchange for my honest review. It made me want to go watch more of Eric’s work! This book was released on February 7, 2017. It is available in your favorite format!
Who would read this: fans of the soap opera, fans of celebrity memoirs, people who want to read about german actors…
Time to Read: 4 hours
Rating: 4/5 stars (mostly because i didn’t watch the show, but i was still interested in reading the book!)
Funny Story: i can remember going to my grandmama’s and seeing her watch y&r, i remember braeden more from herbie goes to monte carlo.
Final thoughts: I enjoyed this book a lot more than i anticipated and i think braeden’s messages throughout the book are an asset to the enjoyment of this memoir. he seems to respect the reader.
