Cast Member Confidential

I'm blogging about someone else's book.  I don't even know the guy who wrote this, but I'm plugging his book anyway because I thought it was a very interesting read.  And a fast read...I read it in one day.  What the hell was I doing reading someone else's book all day long, when I should have been working on my own?  Well...what can I tell ya?  It's good to read other people's work. 

So here's the scoop on "Cast Member Confidential" by Chris Mitchell.  It is:  "the story of a young man who runs away to Disney World, expecting a fantasy Neverland where everybody’s happy and nobody ever dies. After getting a job as a photographer in Walt’s Kingdom, he soon discovers the dark secrets behind Disney’s thin veil of innocence and entertainment."

If you'd rather not see the metaphorical man behind the curtain, and keep the Disney magic alive when you visit the park, then perhaps you'd better not read this.  But honestly, it probably isn't anything you haven't figured out by now.  Like I said, it's really entertaining and well-written.  So go have a look-see at the underbelly of Disney...it's very provocative and lots of fun to read!  And hey...Chris Mitchell, author of this memoir...you're welcome for the shout-out!

What the . . .? Did Walt have something going on with Minnie? Gosh, I hope not! I think maybe I will stick the The Third Man, the book I am currently reading. But thanks for the interesting entry. -- MikeB
