Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Book Going A Million Little Pieces by James Frey is one of the most intense and graphic books I have ever read. It follows a young man’s journey through addiction and the constant obstacles he must face in order to stay clean. It is by far my favourite book and has been since I was a teenager. James Frey, did an amazing job developing characters that readers are compelled to follow. I have spoken to many people who have read this book and one thing we all say is how hard it was to put it down at night and fall asleep. Many people were disappointed that James has somewhat falsified the information in the book, leading the readers to believe it was actually his life. However they feel the need to keep reading about James' semi-fictional lifestyle and have gone onto the sequel My Friend Leonard. If you are an avid reader then I strongly suggest going out to pick up this book; it’s a must read!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Interesting Journey What an educational, inspiring journey James Frey recounts. How can Oprah be so critical of the details of this 'memoir' ? The author makes it abundantly clear that he is telling the story of a time that was blurred by drugs and alcohol. Kudos for pulling through and becomming a best selling author!!

About the Author

James Frey was born on September 12, 1969. He graduated from Denison University in 1992. He eventually moved to Los Angeles and found work as a screenwriter, director, and producer. He wrote the screenplays to the films Kissing a Fool and Sugar: The Fall of the West, which he also directed. He is an American author who was thrust into the spotlight after he published his "autobiographical" book, A Million Little Pieces in 2003. By 2006 it became common knowledge that parts of the memoir were fictitious. This lead Frey and his publisher to a public confrontation on the Oprah show. After admitting that he had made parts of the book up, a note was published in future editions of the book to that effect. Also, readers who felt that they were "defrauded" and who bought the book prior to the 2006 date were offered a refund by Random House. His other books include My Friend Leonard, Bright Shiny Morning, and The Final Testament of the Holy Bible. In 2009 he formed a young adult publishing company, Full Fathom Five, which wrote the novels I Am Number Four and The Power of Six under the name of Pittacus Lore. I Am Number Four was made into a movie in 2011.
