If you read A Million Little Pieces and didn't care if it was fact or fiction and actually thought the whole scandal was amusing, you will enjoy this book. If you were disgusted by the scandal, you might enjoy this book. If you have never heard of A Million Little Pieces or the scandal it caused, you must have been living under a rock early 2006 and this book will be annoying and make no sense at all.
This was an excellent book! It dragged on a little but, you really felt like you were in his mind!
3.5 - I think the people who hate this book are one of the following things: kissers of Frey's ass/people who like/don't mind being lied to/people who don't have a decent sense of humor.
The rest of the world will get some laughs out of this. It's been years since I read Frey's load of crap (I feel inclined to mention I knew and spoke on the fact that it was indeed crap long before Oprah let the cat out of the bag) and I was a little nervous that I wouldn't remember enough to "get" this humor. Well, I was nervous for nothing - it all came flooding back, and I do mean all. A Million Little Pieces (I italicize book/author names in reviews - I feel the need to also point this out for the observant souls out there) was such a load of steaming horse shit that there was no way I couldn't remember it all! (Does it deserve another star for that? Since, in all honesty, it being so bad actually helped this one along?)
I laughed out loud some times, I chuckled even more times, and I felt a strange sense of pity for someone who has to fake his own memoir.
After all is said and done I can honestly recommend this to those of you who don't like being lied to, enjoy sarcastic humor like this, and who think Frey should crawl under a rock and just.......
Special thank you going out to Rhoda Booke for the author illustration - absolutely awesome! :D
