    ok, i've just borrowed a million little pieces (james frey) from a friend of mine. and yes. i do know that he was found out to be a fraud and the book is fiction not non fiction as he claimed it was.

    however, im curious if anyone else has read this book yet?

    i just started yesterday and im totally engrossed (as he does seem to have a vivid imagination) but i am having difficulty with the way its written. sentence by sentence. no real paragraphs. just kinda like its spit out. i guess to me it doesnt flow very well. :-|

    anyone elses thoughts on this?

    im reading it now apple, almost done...

    im pretty sure a lot of the events still did happen, they are just embelished a lot...which is fine by me because it makes a great story..

    i agree about the way it was written... but in the same breath it almost puts you inside his head, which is pretty intriguing

    yeah :clap:

    intriguing is the exact word that i use to describe it. it just takes some getting used to thats all.

    although, i cant see why no one thought to question some of his story right of the bat. i mean right on the first page theres a red flag for me.



    i think this is accurate, i think alot of it is embelished ALOT :roll:

    but yet at the same time, i am very drawn into the story. its a shame he had to lie about it cause if he just said that it was not real then he could have described as a great story teller. he will just now be the guy that lied

    oooooooooook i finally finished this book last night. (yes slower than most but i generally just read on the train in the evenings)

    and i have to say. i really really enjoyed it. despite the fact it was hard to read at first(got much easier) and i just took it as a story because i know most of it was embelished....

    i would say if you can make it past his detox phase youre in for a good book! highly recomend it..it was emotional, funny, engaging..he really had a wonderful story to tell.

    cant wait to pick up the next book, my friend leonard...which picksup where it left off.

    I read it, and even though I knew it wasn't completely true, I still enjoyed the story.

    :cool:
