A Million Little Pieces - James Frey post #1  quote:



So did anyone read this book that Oprah promoted with her Book Club? And now everyone is saying that what he wrote about is all false and exaggerated?

Is it worth reading, even though its authenticity is being questioned?

I heard about this, and I think if it helps people then they shouldn't care that it's fluffed. It shouldn't be marketed as a autobiography though.

I just read that Random House is offering full refunds for those who purchased directly from them. SUCKS! I'm sure it'll get more sales though.... from those who are now interested in the fluff.

Most of the people who bought it are balloon bottomed housewives who follow Oprah like she's the next Fonzy. Weak sauce.

How exagerated is this "autobiography" though? Does he claim he cured cancer or what?
