Author of Million Little Pieces publishes his first fictional novel (not)!
Bright Shiny Morning
By: James Frey
Genre: Adult fiction
Audiobook: 11 CD's (13 hours and 30 mins)
4 out of 5
I vowed never to read another Frey book. I was ticked at him and wanted nothing to do with promoting his writing. After a few co-workers kept pushing me to listen to his fictional novel I gave in. He must be very aware of readers like me, as he opens this book with “Nothing in this book should be considered accurate or reliable”. Honestly, I am glad I gave in. His unique writing style combined with Ben Foster’s mesmerizing voice; this is a highly recommended audiobook. Frey tells several stories of individuals living in California. Some stories he continues throughout his novel; others he only shares a short snippet. This style may make it hard to listen to, but you will soon discover the 3 main stories and really enjoy this book.
