I can't believe there are only two comments on this page....
I actually can't believe I haven't written about him before. Real life sometimes just seems like a movie.
I have to be honest and say I don't know if its about the style, or the story that made me weep pretty much uncrontrollably. I don' need to go on and on and on about this one. just read it.... and respect it......

I think the magic behind the book is that it was written by inspiration of truth. Real stories are good, and this one proved to be better than good. This on was prodigious. I highly reccomend it, oh and there is a second part to it 'my friend leonard'.
see you on the flip side.

I have a hard time with the authors credibility. His account of the time in the Dentist Office proved far too unbelievable for me. There is no way such a procedure would have been performed without some form of "local" anesthesia. Believe me when I say that there are methods of anesthesia that work for addicts and this "Dentist" would have been aware of those. Pure baloney!!

So by now I'm sure everyone's heard that most of the book was fiction...which is a shame, because I think only a small percentage of Americans didn't buy the book, and so many people wasted their money...
There's a spoof of "Million Little Pieces" out now, called "Million Little Lies". I'd like to read the two books and compare.

I don't think it really matters whether the book is true or not. It may not be the story of James Frey's life, but it is the story of someone's life. I have more respect for him after discovering it was exaggerated and partially untrue.
