    Last night at the viper room

    Interesting presentation of "facts" with a slow pace cluttered with non-engaging side-dialogue. More real life review required to balance author opinions.

    River Phoenix's death marked the start of adulthood for me with the cold realization that my peers and I were not, in fact, invincible. I was a huge teeny-bopper fan at the time "Jimmy Reardon" came out and while I didn't follow his career closely in the subsequent years, it was heartbreaking and came as quite a shock to me when River died. This book does a great job of painting what I believe to be a very layered and honest portrait of River Phoenix and the world he inhabited. This is a must-read not only for fans of River Phoenix's, but also those who came of age in the late 1980's & early 1990's as well as anyone interested in learning how the perils of celebrity and substances can cut short a life of someone not necessarily as out-of-control as we might all expect.
