A Million Little Pieces

Has anyone read this book by James Frey? I've read back and forth reviews on it and was curious to hear the opinions here.

I am reading it right now. If you are familiar with addiction, it is an interesting read, although graphic at times. It goes pretty fast too. A friend of mine read it in 2 days!

He also has another book out, "My friend Leonard".

Although it tells about his time at Hazelden, Mr Frey is very anti-12 step programs.

What are his issues with 12 step programs? I wonder if they're the same as mine (I've never been in one but I still have an opinion, of course )

I am always interested in a book Oprah recommends and then I see numerous people reading it....so I must know about this book as well.

And while on the subject of books.....has anyone read the Memoirs of a Geisha book? I hear it was written by a male author! How can it be?!!!

"My Friend Leonard" picks up from where he left off at the end of "A Million Little Pieces".

AMLP is the last book I've read in a long time that left me sobbing at the end.
