Must turn away!

Have you ever been watching a movie or a tv show, and just know they are gonna show you something you don't wanna see. So there you are, knowing what's going to happen, and knowing you don't wanna see it. You crouch down in your seat and cover your eyes and wait for someone to tell you it's over. Tell me, how do you do that with a book? I'm currently reading A Million Little Pieces by James Frey which is the current Oprah book club selection. I cannot beleive this book. It is so amazing! I'm only about one fourth of the way through it, and I am hooked. I have never read a book, that was so descriptive, so horrific, and yet so touching all at the same time. I have never read a book where I wanted to cover my eyes and ears until the moment passed, but knew that I had to know what was going on. If you have never read this book, I honestly recommend that you read it. This man goes through an amazing life changing process, and I can't wait to find out the rest of his story. The other thing that amazes me with this book, is that this man has gone through some horrific things (and like I said, I'm only 1/4 of the way through it), but there are so many kind gestures and emotional connections from people who are strangers with this man, and also he without realizing it reaches out to make emotional connections with others. The most touching thing, that I can't wait to find out more about, is that this man, cannot look into his own eyes. He apparently deeply knows, that his eyes are the windows to his soul, but he's afraid of what he might or maybe might not see.......

Definately more to come on this book.
