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 wasnt 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.
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 MatthewsAlle Produktbeschreibungen

Forget the whole hype about whether things happened exactly the way they are portrayed and just enjoy a book that is something else.
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!
