A Million Little Pieces

Abridged / Go to Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: James Frey

Narrated By: Oliver Wyman

Date: April 2003

Duration: 10 hours 9 minutes


A searing and controversial story of drug and alcohol abuse and rehabilitation, told with the charismatic energy of Kesey's One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest and the revelatory power of Burroughs' Junky.By the time James Frey enters a drug and alcohol treatment facility, he has so thoroughly ravaged his body that the doctors are shocked he is still alive. Inside the clinic, he is surrounded by patients as troubled as he: a judge, a mobster, a former world-champion boxer, and a fragile former prostitute. To James, their friendship and advice seem stronger and truer than the clinic's droning dogma of How to Recover.James refuses to consider himself a victim of anything but his own bad decisions. He insists on accepting sole accountability for the person he has been and the person he may become-which he feels runs counter to his counselor's recipes for recovery. He must fight to survive on his own terms, for reasons close to his own heart. And he must battle the ever-tempting chemical trip to oblivion.

    Meh! I listen to the audio version. Narrator does a great job portraying his anger but the author never figures out what caused the anger issues or how he feels caused his addiction. and he is super repetitive.

    Disappointing to hear that this guy has no belief in a higher power, it doesn't have to be God you know, try NA, anything that keeps you from using is a power greater, your own thinking took you to the bar and the dope house and how can you not believe in the 12 steps if you never worked them, it would be interesting see how long he stays clean on his own

    I rather enjoyed this book. I only gave it three stars since I do find it is a bit long-winded and drawn out in areas, which made me lose focus or interest. But, all in all, it was a good story. There are other characters besides the author that you connect to and it is definitely a lesson on drug addiction.

    Did not care for the writing style. Dont need to hear the same lines repeated numerous times. Fact that its not an actual non fiction book also devalues it for me.

  • Eric Stone

  • Lacey F.

    Absolutely loved this book . Could not put it down with life with addiction and other mental issues in a novel and profound way

  • Anonymous

    Incredibly emotive narrator, made for a great listen!

  • Samantha L.

    If I had to make a complaint then I guess I’d say that I really hated his relationship with Lily. There are also a ton of redundant words and sentences that were annoying to listen to but it’s a very good book. It’s dark and sometimes feels like something you shouldn’t be listening to but I’m glad I did.
