Keanu Reeves: 'Ode to Happiness' Book Signing!

Keanu Reeves reads an excerpt from his first book, Ode to Happiness, at a book signing at Waterstone’s Piccadilly on Saturday (June 18) in London, England.

The 46-year-old actor recently told the UK’s Guardian that he hopes to write more books in the future.

“I hope we get to do another book,” Keanu shared. “I’m considering another idea I call Haikus of Hope. Basically like, ‘I want to kill myself’, and go from there. Going into such a dark place that you can somehow surprisingly find the light at the end of the tunnel – but a nice end of the tunnel. Not the end of the tunnel.”

Ode to Happiness is a grown-up’s picture book, a charming reminder not to take oneself too seriously.

    he looks so cute when he smiles :)

    Should have been there. He’s funny, fiercely intelligent, charming and not a shred of arrogance about him. A real gentleman. Pity men like him don’t exist in the ‘real’ world. And so expressive. A tad on the shy side, I thought as well. Not altogether comfortable with all the fuss and attention but so gracious to the audience. Happily sat for over an hour and seemed in no hurry to leave. If that was acting, then he’s far better than anyone gives him credit for. A lovely, lovely man. If anyone ever snags him, she’ll be the luckiest woman in the world.

    He should shave and stop looking like a hobo. He looks grotesque.

    haikus of hope sounds like a promise of better times, hope so and don’t forget affections of the mind…the true meaning of passion.

    this is me…”ahanta’ eternal indestructible nature of the divine or the truly real…so from one writer to another….good luck with your books

    epiphanies…such as “tzu-jan” only come once in a life time…unless you are pretty good at ” found objects” then and only then do you get (it)….

    That is great that you wrote a book. Don’t stop and don’t give up or in you are good on what you do. Keep up on writing your books and acting too. Be proud of who you are and what you become a good man with a good heart and soul.
