BEST TRUE STORY EVER
Saturday September 26, 2009 - 2:01 PM
The fact that this is the first non-cumpulsory book that I have read cover to cover on my own free will (other than business awareness or self-improvement books) since I was in high school. And back then it was Orwell's 1984 which I read like 20 times in a row rather than read 19 other books that may have turned out to be shitty, I liked 1984 so much I decided to read it 19 more times and brag that every book I read that year was a classic

I 100% agree with pumpitup.

who caressss if this book was made up or not...

I'm reading this book right now and it's quite enjoyable. I'm about 3/4 of the way through it. I hesitated clicking on the review, because I didn't want to read any other comments that might ruin the book for me, but nosey as I am, I read the comment below me and...RUINED! lol Awh man, Leonard and Lilly really die?!!! I'm going to be reading James Frey's 'My Friend Leonard' next.

i like the writing style, simple, yet effective.... yes it is over exaggerated but still really good book.
Wednesday July 04, 2007 - 5:05 AM
you can tell when hes over exaggerating.
Monday July 02, 2007 - 7:28 AM
how could you NOT tell that some of it was fictionalized?
Thursday June 07, 2007 - 9:23 PM
Besides the fact that it was all bullshitted and what not it sounded pretty believable when I read it considering the fact that I found out it was mostly made up after I finished it.
Wednesday June 06, 2007 - 5:44 PM
bullshit fabricated bullshit fuck james fry and all those junnnnnnnnnnkkkkkkkkiiies
Wednesday June 06, 2007 - 3:19 PM
ive only read about it, but im buying it in a coupe days, heard its awsome..haha it was on oprah a little while ago
Wednesday June 06, 2007 - 7:12 AM
i thought it was an awesome book. it gave people going thru the same situation hope. even if they did change their tune after it was found out to be a lie. fictional or not, it's still a fantastic peice of writing, and everyone should read it.

I think it's hilarious that people who claimed to love this book did a complete turnaround and started declaring how much they hated it once it was revealed that Fry was mostly full of shit.

omg it was so hard well difficult to read i was very emotional and i really liked it well until oprah added it to her book club.
Saturday January 20, 2007 - 2:14 PM
Loved this book, didnt want it to end. i read it before the whole thing about it being a lie came out. i couldnt care less really, but it would be a different read if i read it again now.
Tuesday January 02, 2007 - 4:02 PM
I really liked this book. When reading it you had to realize it was not totally true. Obviously someone in such a condition as he was would not recall every minor detail he provided in this book. A good read whether all fact or fiction.

I really don't care where the inspiration came to write the book... from personal life events or not.. but I got a lot from it. I understood some of the sensations described. The bok is powerful, and truely, I would recommend it!
Saturday December 09, 2006 - 12:15 PM
he gets 1 star.

For all you retards that are still caught up in the controversy around this book, remember that history only exists in the eye of the one who documents it.
Sunday December 03, 2006 - 12:15 PM
I don't see why it matters whether or not it is a book of fiction. I mean, the story line is great, beautifully written. How does knowing that it's not real make the book "not good". I can't seem to understand the mentality of people who say it was good until they heard it was not 100% real. So what, it's very inspirational and as someone who has experienced drug addiction, I love it. I don't care what anyone says, AMAZING book, even though not everything is 100% factual, which I agree was pretty stupid of him, it helped me alot and I'm sure it helped alot of others get through it, because you can still relate to the story. Ah well, I loved the way it was written and still loved the story.
Sunday December 03, 2006 - 11:11 AM
I really, really loved this book. I enjoyed the subject. I enjoyed how it was written - I could barely put the book down.

It was a great book, I do say it was un-cool to make a lot of it up. All-in-all it was a great read. If you liked it you should read My Friend Leonard.
Thursday November 09, 2006 - 11:10 AM
I haven't read it... but i would really like to get my hands on it... i've heard from various different people that it's awesome.. whether it's all real or not... I think it would be good!
Friday November 03, 2006 - 11:48 PM
Real life story or not....
Friday November 03, 2006 - 7:24 AM
Although I loved what I read of this book.. I was unable to get over that someone would fabricate most of the details of a book with such a serious matter. Yes some of the things that he says happened actually happened but he exaggerrated a good majority of the book, from people to situations to severity of these things..soomething thats really sick and gross is that while on Oprah he said that Lily was real, that she really killed her self, but he fabricated how she died to make it more "gross" we will say. THATS SICK...from personal experience drug addiction and any addiction for that matter is a very serious topic..and this book just treats it like nothing.....and btw..if a book isn't true..it isn't real..just kinda wanted to point that out.
Friday November 03, 2006 - 1:33 AM
Just finished it today. I actuall cried when i read the last page. Awesome book.
Thursday November 02, 2006 - 11:08 PM
it was an amazing book.
Tuesday October 31, 2006 - 12:47 PM
I couldn't put this book down and would recommend it to everyone...whether its true or not. this book was definitely real
Friday October 27, 2006 - 8:54 AM
Fantastic read, regardless of whether it's fact or fiction.
Friday October 27, 2006 - 1:16 AM
It's silly that most people thing this book was entirly fiction, when in fact it was not. 98% of it is completly true, the other parts being exagerrated..
Thursday October 26, 2006 - 9:45 PM
I really liked this one and hope to grab the sequal to it as well.
Friday October 20, 2006 - 6:10 PM
A million little fibres was better.
Friday October 20, 2006 - 6:01 PM
It was a good book,
Thursday October 19, 2006 - 8:51 PM
This was an amazing book the whole way through until the very end which I found a bit of a drag comparatively.
Wednesday October 18, 2006 - 10:03 PM
I really liked this book. I know there was a lot of controversy about if it was real or made up or a little bit of both. In my opinion it doesn't matter if it was true or not, it was well written and I loved reading it, definitely hard to put down. Is that not what a good book is supposed to do?? Whether it be fiction or non-fiction!
Saturday October 14, 2006 - 10:09 AM
Its totally obvious that this book was made up, but ARENT MOST BOOKS FICTION, including HISTORY BOOKS....lol...and SCIENCE BOOKS for that matter! What is good about this book is the prose....and it doesnt matter that its made up, because at least Frey, being the drug addict that he is (what was your first clue that he might lie OPRAH...lol...she is so fucking stupid), told the TRUTH, which Oprah hasnt done since the 80's....she is so full of BS her eyes are brown...and the public lets her earn 100 million dollars a YEAR...fuck that is sick...let james frey have his book, that he WROTE HIMSELF...unlike oprah who has WRITERs...and lies to her audience like she does all this work.
Friday September 29, 2006 - 12:42 PM
Loved this book too... could not put it down... unti I heard that it was mostly a work of fiction. That kind of spoiled the charm for me... but even as fiction, it's pretty good.

definitely a well written book. great story, though i would have liked it if he didn't exaggerate some of his symptoms just so he could sell more books. but i guess that's the way of the world.
