Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff is a Hard Book to Put Down

Home | Activist | Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff is a Hard Book to Put Down

Sean Penn wrote and recently published a book known to its readers as, “Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff,” and it’s a hot item. The book was stirring the pot before it even got released as soon as parts were released and had even gone viral on the social media platform.

So many people are trying to compare it to real life even though it is a fictitious book. Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff follows a man throughout many different situations, jobs, and even killings and is sure to be a real page-turner for any who read it. It is strange, intriguing, and entertaining all at the same time.

Penn has tried his hand at writing a book cover to cover in the past but has never had the time to devote to finishing what he started. Now, at the age of 57, he has the time to really enjoy the process of writing and is even thinking of doing it again.

Penn has done many different things with his life including interviewing El Chapo, and convicted killer, Jeff Spicoli, and his recent accomplishment of publishing a novel just goes to show that he is ambitious and unafraid to try new things. Penn has written before and is a big fan of Harry Crews, Terry Southern, and Thomas Pynchon.

Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff was released first as an audiobook before it was released in print form partly because the whole process of publishing is quite tedious. Penn found that writing was a lot more enjoyable than he had expected and even though certain areas were less than pleasant such as editing, it was overall, an enjoyable experience. He even wonders why he hadn’t done it much sooner. Penn has stepped back from filmmaking somewhat these days to pursue his own endeavors, and he is loving the freedom.

The main character of Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff can be likened to the state of the world today as well as seen solely as fiction. It just depends on who is reading it and how it is depicted.
