Matthew Perry’s Book: Friends, Lovers and the Big Terrible Thing

A review of Perry’s memoirs: the good, the bad, and the ugly

Memoirs are one of my favorite genres. I love getting a behind-the-scenes look at someone’s life, especially if it’s someone who is famous or has an interesting story to tell. That being said, not all memoirs are created equal. Some are absolutely fascinating, while others are downright depressing. The one I recently finished falls into the latter category.

It’s a miracle that this man is alive and his addiction has been very difficult for those around him. I found it sad when reading about the effects of alcohol on one’s life; he seems to have never experienced true happiness or contentment in his all his years, in spite of Hollywood success.

Book Review: Powerful Addiction

The memoir I’m referring to is “Friends, Lovers and the Big Terrible Thing” a new book by Matthew Perry. It chronicles Matthew Perry’s battle with addiction. It’s an incredibly powerful and moving book, but it’s also very sad. Reading about Perry’s descent into addiction and everything went through to try to help him was heartbreaking.

While “Friends, Lovers and the Big Terrible Thing” is a tremendously powerful book, it’s not an easy read. It’s difficult to see someone (or the character) you care about suffer so much, and knowing that there’s nothing you can do to help them is even worse. Matthew does an excellent job of conveying those feelings in his writing.

As sad as “Friends, Lovers and the Big Terrible Thing” is, it’s also an important book. Addiction is a serious problem that doesn’t get nearly enough attention. This memoir shines a light on what addicts and their families go through on a daily basis. It’s a must-read for anyone who wants to better understand addiction and its effects.

Or just another “Woe is Me” Money Making Memoir?

On the flip side, this latest edition is out in time for Christmas… is this just another instance of a Hollywood actor spilling all of their dirty secrets in order to garner public sympathy and improve their career. While it may be interesting to hear about the drugs, sex, and manipulation that goes on behind the scenes in Hollywood, do we really need another tell-all book about these things? Isn’t it simply more of the same stories we’ve heard time and time again from other actors? It’s become almost a tried and true formula for these celebrities: spiral into addiction, crash and burn, get into recovery program, release a tell-all book. Perhaps instead of yet another story about an actor’s extravagant lifestyle and downfall, we should seek out books that offer unique insights or fresh perspectives on the entertainment industry. Matthew Perry’s book may sell well now, but in the long run does it offer anything new to the addiction conversation?

The Keanu Reeves Controversy

Fans of Keanu Reeves will not be happy. While Matthew Perry’s book, describes the heartbreaking loss of two friends, River Phoenix and Heath Ledger. He goes on to say that these talented individuals did not deserve to die while actors like Keanu Reeves continue to “walk among us” is not only grossly overly dramatic but also incredibly mean-spirited.

If you’re looking for an uplifting read, “Friends, Lovers and the Big Terrible Thing” probably isn’t the book for you. However, if you’re interested in learning more about addiction and its effects on an individual, then it’s not a bad read for an insight into chronic addiction.

Matthew Perry’s book while full of self-pity and self-loathing it is a raw and honest account of his struggles with substance abuse, fame, and love. Perry takes us on a journey through the early days of his career, from the incredible highs to the devastating lows of addiction. It is extremely brave for Perry to share such vulnerable moments, laying bare his pain and mistakes in order to illustrate his eventual path to recovery and self-acceptance. Along with his own reflections, he includes personal photographs that further add depth to this unflinching exploration of addiction and redemption. “Friends, Lovers and the Big Terrible Thing” offers insight not only into Matthew Perry’s own story but into the realities of living with addiction.

I highly recommend this book for anyone who wants a deeper understanding of the struggles faced by those in the public eye as well as anyone seeking their own path to healing and forgiveness. Matthew Perry courageously lays it all out on the page, leaving no stone unturned in his quest for a paycheck, personal growth and understanding.
