I think that the emotional journey that takes place in the book is very real. I for one relate to it and I am thankful that James wrote it. It is so sad that we put so much energy into destroying something so precious. Something that has given inspiration to so many. Is the world so perfect that we cant accomadate James Frey.
I am not an addict but I have exprienced truama and I am a survivor.
I reconise what James is talking about and I think that so many are missing the point of his story. Its a gritty account of survival from what he has seen and felt. Surviving the worst of the worst and making it back.
Thank you James Frey.

His book A Million Little Pieces was incredible. It really conveyed the emotions and pain that go along with all types of addictions. I do not care at all that he embellished on certain details of his story. He was trying to get across a feeling, not just tell a story with every little detail perfect and he did it in the best way possible. The book helped me understand something very important that happened to a member of my family and I appreciate Frey for writing it.

whether the book is embellished & exaggerated..or not..i think that is irrelevent..for anyone who struggles w/ ALL the addicitions...food, crack, dope, alcohol, sex, etc etc...the story for sure goes under one's skin & allows a misfit feel as tho they actually fit in & is not alone...
this story talks to my deepest darkest places...& i thank u for writing it...it's brave & it's true...
so many connections i am sharing...more than you will ever believe

In answer to your question about does it matter which book to read first? even though they are writen differently if you read m.l.p first you will understand the characters that follow through to the book my friend leanord. They are both excellent books I cant wait to read another one of his books and wish he would hurry up with it. enjoy

I truly hope there is another book in the future. I read both of his books and loved them. I have also been through a treatment program about 1 1/2 years ago and know that all these things have happened to someone somewhere and much worse. Hold your head high. You have done much good for many people. Don't quit writing.

I just picked up My Friend Loenard cause it sounded like a good book, but i didn't realize that it was somewhat of a sequel to A Million Little Pieces. so my question is, should i read A Million Little Pieces first or can i just start reading My Friend Loenard and not be lost b/c i didn't read the first book?

I just read the book cover to cover, I don't care at all if some things are made up. The book helps you understand what life is like when you let something else own you. The progress he made, some of which must have been true is inspiring, and I'm proud of him.
