Sean Penn is out with a new thriller and not a film, in fact, he says he is almost done with acting. It is a sad affair for his fans that his bidding goodbye to acting but it is very accommodating to his creative muscles and additionally very comforting that he will bless their days with thrilling content.
Penn has now turned writer and his virgin book Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff is a masterpiece of absurd fiction. This book is funny and satirical and is observant of the state of affairs of modern-day America. Penn says it is entirely a work of fiction but he also says in a way it is a venting medium for him to express his mind on what he thinks is wrong with the American society.
Penn says a lot of people are not concerned about their legacy, but he is at a critical point of life where he cares about his contribution to the world and the book is just the first baby step in his quest. For a man who has received academy awards recognition for his remarkable career in the acting industry, legacy should be the last of his worries in his life, but not for Penn. He says that while Hollywood offered him a big break in his career he feels that his creativity was always censored by the industries policies. He says that writing has offered him freedom from collaboration and now he can stretch his creative ability to the maximum.
Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff
The book Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff is based on a fictional character called Bob who is middle-aged American who does not give smiles for free. Bob is a salesperson, entrepreneur and also an assassin. Bob is a sad person who is not on good terms with his landlord and he expresses his frustration through a letter which he indicates that the landlord should better have a change of mind.
The character is reminiscent of today’s modern-day American who is tired of how things are being administered in the country. Bob does what he can and works hard by selling septic tanks alongside some other side jobs like helping post-war victims and helping people of Haiti rebuild after a natural catastrophe. Perhaps his most notable hustle is that of assassinating old people. He thinks that he is doing the environment a favor by getting rid of the elderly citizens with his chosen weapon, a wooden mallet. This is satire at its best. According to Penn the character in Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff is totally out of creativity and should be treated like it is; completely fictitious.

Sean Penn has never been afraid of controversy or speaking his mind no matter how delicate the subject may be. His new book “Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff” is getting mixed reviews. You either love it, or hate it, there is no in between. About a simple man who sells septic tanks for a living and does a few government assassinations on the side for extra money, the story appears to reflect modern American Culture, and many are saying Penn nailed it.
When Trevor Noah of the Daily Show asked him was the story supposed to be a metaphor Penn didn’t answer him directly but went on to defend his characters seeming need to shame women whenever possible. So, is Penn simply trying to say this is life, but we can change it? Time will answer that question and the verdict is still out on whether or not the idea of Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff can begin to cure our culture of all its ills or maybe make things a little bit worse.
People are saying Penn has simply written a biography with his book and the main character “Bob Honey” is Penn himself by another name. In a phone interview with Vogue when Penn was asked if he set out intending to “but heads with” the #MeToo movement he replied the “#MeToo thing” was part of a whole. Any movement that creates equality is a good thing but in Penn’s opinion this movement may be compared to a “toddlers’ crusade” and he asks has “due process lost its sheen?”
This movement is seen by some as nothing more than a platform for well-known men to be railroaded on and that false accusers do so with impunity using the #MeToo movement as a legal cover. He says his book is not an opinion piece but still, the American President in “Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff” sure sounds a lot like President Trump, and the climate of the times seem to clearly reflect what we live with in the real world.
