Publisher's Summary

Perhaps best known as the snarky narrator and cofounder of the viral YouTube channel CinemaSins, Jeremy Scott cracked the code of turning a passion for film and sarcasm into a full-time job. Original Sin is Jeremy's compelling story of family, career, and deep love for movies that launched him into internet stardom. In his trademark, unapologetic voice, he gives an irreverent and honest take on the wild ride to creating a YouTube sensation. This memoir-with-a-twist sprinkles listeners with his personal advice on the combination of dumb luck, know-how, and je nais se quois it takes to be successful on YouTube while hilariously relaying how two friends stumbled into fame. With anecdotes of laugh-out-loud misadventures and insightful, actionable advice for aspiring YouTubers, Original Sin is the ultimate behind-the-scenes look into the inception of an internet sensation. But more than that, it's one man's love letter to humankind's greatest escape, a pastime that allows us to dream and dwell on beauty, art, and truth.

F***ing WOW

As a somewhat longtime fan of CinemaSins, this book really spoke to me. 1) of course Jeremy was a PK - he has "the voice" as I call it, and that's probably partially why he's been successful. 2) as a non-PK who was so indoctrinated in church culture that I was literally there EVERY DAY OF THE WEEK - yep! All those jokes land for me. 3) All that being said... I was still allowed many secular experiences like music and movies. The best parts were hearing him wax poetic about how much he loved every part of the movie experience. That's that sh*t I love about anyone who is passionate about anything; in this audio book I could hear when his eyes lit up. I know that doesn't make sense but trust me. I could tell.

Said all that to say... I loved it, obvi. That's it. That's the sin. *DING*

Fantastic.

This book is great. that's all no extra qualifiers needed. Jeremy Scott tells his life story (so far) splendidly, succinctly and superbly.
I too spent a part of my life in the movie theater business, and everything reflects accurately the trials and tribulations of such a life. Well done.

Good memoirs. Good, not great.

Bought this because I'm a big fan of CinemaSins. It was really interesting to hear about the genesis of the channel, and the stories that shaped Jeremy's relationship with movies. There was a good amount of chuckle-worthy humor throughout, with a few genuine laugh-out-loud moments (the money-clip story got me good).

My biggest issue is with the lack of editing in the actual recording. There was a lot of audible breathing and mouth sounds that made listening very unpleasant. I wish an editor had gone through and removed all of that.
