A friend lent me a copy of this book a while back, and I really enjoyed it.
All the controversy aside -- is it a memoir or fiction? -- the book will probably strike a chord with anyone who's ever been addicted to anything. I count myself among sugar addicts, chocolate and sweets being my enemy number one, and could relate to the story's psychological backdrop to a big extent. For those who can count themselves lucky and addiction-free, the book still offers an interesting human story.
Backside: At the age of 23, James Frey woke up on a plane to find his four front teeth knocked out, his nose broken, and a hole through his cheek. He had no idea where the plane was headed nor any recollection of the past two weeks. An alcoholic for ten years and a crack addict for three, he checked into a treatment facility shortly after landing. There he was told he could either stop using or die before he reached age 24. This is Frey's acclaimed account of his six weeks in rehab.
It was interesting to take note of the facts as regards how many people manage to live sober the rest of life despite treatment.
I'm glad I got the opportunity to read the book for it means that I can better understand those with similar problems..
