really liked it

From the reviews I have read, this book is a solid 50/50 love/hate with literary reviewers. I am definitely in the "like very much side" of this ratio. Yes, this is over the top, at times, and gives a new meaning to overkill (at times) as well. However, I found myself caring about the characters in this book and looking forward to what happens to them. I love that as a connective thread, Frey interweaves a series of short passages outlying the history of Los Angles. Read this and let me know what you think. I too was in the minority who did NOT care that James Frey lied a tad, or (a lot) in his memoir A Million Little Pieces. Sometimes a lie is the bring red splash of paint that is needed to get through a day.
