Rated 5 out of 5 by from Controversial but good. I read this as a book club choice and really enjoyed even with all the controversy about it, I found it to be really good.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fake memoir, still good fiction. While Frey suffered the consequence of lying to the Mighty Opes (Oprah Winfrey, if you're nasty), A Million Little Pieces is still a good read despite the fact that it's a mostly fabricated memoir. Frey captures the restlessness and on-the-edge feelings that underlies the silent intensity of a rehab setting, and the cold, hard reality of detoxing. The terse, bare bones prose he adopts to tell his story is fitting, and brings out the bleakness of his journey.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Million Little Pieces Incredible story of the intense hold of addiction on one. mans soul and of his remarkable recovery. Gives us all hope that the will can be stronger than the pill.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Million Little Pieces A very direct memoir. It not just covers the topic of sex and drugs openly but also in a very human way. It makes the reader feel the horrors of the power of addictions and how it destroys everything it reaches. It is overwhelming at times and you hate yourself for reading it but at the same time you can't stop. It makes you feel disgusted when you read but also sad and incredibly proud of James.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Million Little Pieces Despite the controversy that surrounds the book about how true it is,it's undeniable that James Frey's A Million Little Pieces is a harsh, cold, awkward but massively rewarding tale told from the very heart of the first person. While self-loathing, Frey never becomes self-deprecating or dull and as you go through the book, through wonderful subtleties you see him change from hopeless to just a little more hopeful. The characters are beautifully crafted and it is uniquely written in a way that is both clinical and utterly heart tearing. A Million Little Pieces is not an easy ride, do not expect one, but the hype that surrounds it is thoroughly deserved.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great read! I am a recovering pill (opiate) addict. I couldn't put this book down. It's one of the 1st books I read when I began my recovery in Dec '12. I recommend anybody in recovery or their family members to read this book. A very easy & interesting 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!!
