This isn't your typical sob story about an addict who is trying to put his life together. It is a powerful, graphic, minute by minute account of a rock-bottom situation. James Frey, the author and the the main character (it's not fiction folks). I'm only about 50 pages into this book and already I can feel the pain, the helpless, hopless feeling.
I highly recommend it even though I have just started it. A far cry from The Bee Season and The Other Boleyn Girl. This is meaty and real and shocking. I've heard that if you or someone you know is or has been an addict of some kind, you need to read this book. A Million Little Pieces is worth your time. Let me know what you think.
