A Million Little Pieces

by James Frey

I knew about this book from Oprah's Book Club...i watched the show...i heard what the writer had to say (and his mom!!)...and i thought about giving it a try in spite of not being too much into this type of book.
And i was wrong i was so wrong...
The author gives a heart breaking crushing tale of recovery from addiction...the guilt and desperation it's overwhelming...he describes himself as an alcoholic and a drug addict and a criminal.
However it's a message of hope and inspiration for families going through something like that!

i love these kinda books in which the author try to convey the good through the bad going in their lives...
try "running with scissors"... even that book runs on similar lines... its a story of the metamorphosis of the author and how he finally ends up on a better side...
