A much better read than A Million Little Pieces. If you even remotely liked Frey's first book, give this one a try. You will be pleasantly suprised!

Same interesting prose as "A Million Little Pieces." More touching.

Even with all the stuff that went down with "A Million Little Pieces" which was incredibly well written, this guy writes an amazing book. I think the Chicago Tribune said it best, as quoted on the back cover..."Amid all the furor and scolding, one thing has been overlooked...The guy can write."
If you read his first book and liked it, read this...it picks up where that one ended.

Even tho we all know that James Frey was less than honest in his "memoir"...his books are still interesting....and Leonard was my favorite character from Million Little Pieces

Every time I look at the cover of this book & A Million Little Pieces I get upset. It was a good read, the writing was excellent and the story was great... until I found out it was not true at all, the author lied. Had the truth been known at the beginning of this read i'd of loved it a lot more. It made me so upset. I just can't get past the lie and the idea I believed it all.

Fact or fiction? Either way, Frey's a great storyteller and he had me captivated the whole way through with this one!

This book was so great! I couldn't out it down...wanted to know what was going to happen next. It was funny, heartbreaking, and everything in between - a must read!
