Synopsis

At the age of twenty-three, James Frey woke up on a plane to find his four front teeth had been knocked out. His nose was broken and there was a hole through his cheek. He had no idea where the plane was headed or what had happened over the preceding two weeks. He had been an alcoholic for ten years and a crack addict for three. When he checked into a treatment facility shortly thereafter, he was told he could either stop using or die before he reached twenty-four.

Yes, I know all about Mr. Frey's liberties with the truth however, his story whether fiction or non-fiction is important and powerful. I read this book shortly after living through a hellish couple of years with an adult son, who was addicted to cocaine and pretty much everything else. This book caused me to shed buckets of tears, but it also made me laugh. This is the story of an addict. It's real and it tells a valuable story of the horrors of drug addiction--the wreckage of the addict's life as well as the suffering by those that care about the addict.

I wanted to read this book due to all the hype. I could care less if it was true or not, but i still just could not get into it. Maybe it was because I was expecting more...

I've been wanting to read this one for awhile bc of the controversy that some of the things that go on in the book were fabricated. Who cares? It was really interesting. Some parts I had to skip bc it was just too gory for me. It did not disappoint. I recommend it!

This is a wonderful book. I couldn't put it down. Nothing more needs to be said.
