Amazon.de

When he entered a residential treatment centre at the age of twenty-three, James Frey had destroyed his body and his mind almost beyond repair. He faced a stark choice: accept that he wasn’t going to see twenty-four or step into the fallout of his smoking wreck of a life and take drastic action. Surrounded by patients as troubled as he, Frey had to fight to find his own way to confront the consequences of the life he had lived so far, and to determine what future, if any, he has. A Million Little Pieces is an uncommon account of a life destroyed and a life reconstructed.

Pressestimmen

Excellent ... Frey's storytelling feels compulsive, involuntary ... poignant and tragic. The forthcoming film will almost certainly be a cult hit ... The good thing about Frey is that he writes as if he needs to; I hope his new compulsion thrives William Leith, Spectator James Frey's utterly mesmerising account ... [is] easily the most remarkable non-fiction book about drugs and drug taking since Hunter S Thompson's Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas ... As a memoir, it is almost mythic. You can imagine it made epic by Martin Scorsese, the auteur of wayward American maleness in all its extremity ... Utterly compulsive Observer Frey really can write. Brilliantly. And if you don't think so, f*** you Evening Standard Clear sighted and intellectually honest Literary Review A heartbreaking memoir ... inspirational and essential Bret Easton Ellis This book is definitely going to be huge ... There is no question that he's a good writer. As soon as you start reading the book, Frey's voice rings out. It's clear and sharp and turbocharged ... We love rehab memoirs. This is a good one. It might even be a great one Independent An extraordinary and deeply moving book that will make you think about family, friendship, love, religion, death and perhaps most of all, the human spirit Irish Sunday Independent Startling and ultimately breath taking Kirkus Reviews Horribly honest and funny ... Read this immediately Gus Van Sant Harrowing, poetic and rather magnificent FHM James Frey spent ten years addicted to alcohol and crack before going into rehab at the age of 23. This unrelenting memoir of his recovery spares no detail. Luckily, he is a good writer - indulgent and uncompromising Metro Frey is selfish, egocentric, violent and pompous ... What redeems this insufferably bad mannered book is that, at the end of the day, Frey can write. Brilliantly Scotsman Frey's writing style vividly conveys the horrors of addiction ... dark humour and sharp observations are evidence of a keen intelligence and an unusual strength of character ... a totally absorbing book The Magistrate Harrowing and unflinching ... This is not a book about drugs but about their aftermath ... Though definitely not for the faint hearted, Frey is often darkly and self deprecatingly funny. This is, in essence, a story of redemption and an incredibly moving one. This is a great book Waterstone's Books Quarterly This book is a raging, brilliant debut. Waterstone's Books Quarterly Crafted from genuine, raw emotion. Irish Examiner 'Blisteringly written ... The prose is superb' Daily Express 'James Frey propelled the memoir of dysfunctional life to the top of the bestseller lists' Daily Telegraph 'Frey's book combined high quality drug porn with memorable characters and a strong narrative arc that describes a modern version of Rake's Progress.' Druglink Magazine 'The last remarkable book I read... I couldn't put it down.' Q Magazine, Dave Matthews

how I loved this book. I love the character, the story and above all, the language. I can honestly say I have never read anything quite like this and am mesmerised by the powerful language which transports even more than the story itself does. Months later and I still go on about this book (the same applies astonishingly to the foolow-up My friend Leonard). Who cares if it's a true story, this is one of my favourites ever.

This book is no literary art work nor a grammatical example text. It is written according its content: plain, straight away, partly messed up and confused. And that's what it makes it so credible and convincing to the reader. It made me feel, cry, smile and it gave me the shivers, too. Anyone interested in TRUE, REAL literature, anyone who does not hide away from the darker, dirtier side of this world into Rosamunde Pilcher stories, should read this book - and by means of it appreciate what he HAS, as "ordinary" as it may seem.

I devoured this book. Having been bored and annoyed by the self-glorifying style of so many memoirs/ autobiographies, this book was such a difference. Of course the content is extremely serious and eye-opening, but its style is straight and simple. It's like James Frey had no energy left to waste on frills, which matches the story perfectly.
Forget the whole hype about whether things happened exactly the way they are portrayed and just enjoy a book that is something else.

first of all, this is a story of a drug addict who started at the age of 13. on the cover stands something like a comparison to 'fear & loathing in las vegas', but it is nothing like it. ok the story is about a drug addict, but that is the only equality to it. this book is more like a story about the addiction itself and i guess it is really honest, cause otherwise you can't write this way.
the book is very well written and easy to understand (even for a german like me). you get the feeling, that you are flying over the pages and walking with james through rehabilitation.
so both thumbs up from me!

The book deserves the 5 it gets. This outstanding memoir by James Frey's articulating his struggles to put his pathetic , addicted, broken life back together is written with such realness that most addicts can relate to it. One gets awed from the beginning by the author's writing skills as well as the gripping nature of the story. Not only has it so many lessons in it, I also find it inspirational. Like The The Grandmothers by Janvier Chando, Smashed by Koren Zailckas, and other interesting stories out there, A Million Little Pieces easily brings tears, sighs, laughter and phew in different turns.

A sheer fantastic (true) odessey of a recovering alcoholic, drug-addict, crack-head...you name it. I've never cried and laughted so much, a sensational tale of what happens when someone quits doing alcohol and drugs. After reading James Frey's story I see expressions like 'rock-bottom', 'co-dependendy', 'higher power', 'rehab' and 'detox' in a different light. I've thrown away most other biographies about recovery I had. James Frey will spell-bind you and if you as an addict or related to an addict want to read ONE book about recovery, this is it!
