So, scandal aside, I'm going to write a review of my thoughts on the actual BOOK for what it is....a book. I could give two craps about what ensued outside of the book with the 'whole truths' of James Frey.
read this book twice, yes twice people, and I liked it both times. Once
before people realized certain people in the book were fictitious, and
once after. I enjoyed it. I felt a definite connection to the characters
and was able to actually immerse myself in his world. That for me alone
is enough to dictate a good book from another. If I can't connect, or
am looking around the room for a clock, there's a problem. I never once
did that with A Million Little Pieces.
Even though there wasn't a
major flip in his character, he definitely still had a change. Not like
a light switch being turned on, but more like the dimmer was turned on a
Not sure why, but thinking back on this book after
having watched Breaking Bad over and over, I somewhat relate the
character Jesse's story to this book.
All in all, good book. If only people could set scandals aside and review a book for what it was. A pretty good book. Sheesh.
4/5 Stars :)
