A Million Little Pieces by James Frey John Murray $105 Two months before this book's release, James Frey, 33, told the New York Observer: 'I don't give a f*** what they think about me. I'm going to try to write the best book of my generation and I'm going to try to be the best writer.' Unfortunately, all he delivers is annoying gimmicks such as missing punctuation, aligning all his paragraphs to the left, randomly Capitalising Words, and using Annoying. One. Word. Sentences. This supposedly true memoir is about the former drug addict's time in an expensive rehab clinic when he was 23. There are plenty of vomit-inducing scenes, including his account of undergoing dental surgery without anaesthesia. But in spite of the hell he goes through, Frey never matures. He's rude to everyone (but they respect him, anyway), nearly kills a priest, and all he cares about is proving what a badass he is. He's just a jerk.
