5.0 out of 5 stars I will never forget this book ! Ever., December 30, 2005
This review is from: A Million Little Pieces (Paperback)
"A million little pieces" is the story of James Frey, and his 6 weeks in rehab. We enter the story when James wakes up, finds himself on a plane with no idea of its destination, his clothes soaked in a mix of snot, urine, blood, and vomit, his four front teeth are missing and he has a hole in his cheek... He has, at the age of 23, almost destroyed his body due drugs and alcohol abuse.

"A million little pieces" is James' memoir, but it reads like a novel. His writing is simple and direct, yet beautiful and elegant. His economic writing style, the staccato way of expressing himself, adds an interesting angle to it.

The book had my attention from the preface to the very last page. The author has this amazing ability to grab the reader's attention and hold on to it. When reading this book, I was a part of it. I was there; I could feel the emotions of each of the characters. And when they suffered, I suffered. Reading the part when James went to the dentist was almost unbearable - and the only place in the book I was even remotely tempted to skip a few lines...

This is, bar none, one of the best books I've ever read, and I will never forget it! I read it in 50 page gulps - a compelling read.

Highly recommended!
