blog 2- A Million Little Pieces
I am currently on page 123 of A Million Little Pieces by James Frey. I have recently become proud of the author because he has progressed! Previously, James did not make any sort of effort in the treatment center, but he has finally pushed aside some of his pride and made a compromise with Leonard to stay for 24 more hours. Thankfully, Leonard stopped James from leaving the center and committing suicide. James has described darkness before, but not nearly as vivid as when he walks outside and plans to take away his own life. This portion of the book has made me think about some stubborn people in my life. I'm a very open person and associate with all types of people, so this instantly made me recall some moments with of some friends of mine that have chosen to go down a bit of a darker road. Though these friends of mine sometimes choose to consume themselves with substance, this part in the book reminds me that I am like Leonard in being the voice of reason. Leonard was adamant about caring for James, no matter if he reciprocated that back or not. This is a reminder to me that I can be that friend. Thus far A Million Little Pieces still tickles my fancy and the author is finally making an effort to come back to the light!
