James Frey non è come gli altri scrittori. È stato accusato di essere un bugiardo. Un impostore. Un traditore. È stato definito un salvatore. Un rivoluzionario. Un genio. Ciò che fa paura a molti è che Frey gioca con la verità, sempre sulla linea sottile tra fatti e finzione. Ora ha scritto il suo romanzo più rivoluzionario, più controverso. Che cosa fareste se scopriste che il Messia è vivo? Oggi. A New York. Che fa l'amore con uomini e donne. Che pratica l'eutanasia ai morenti e guarisce i malati. Che sfida i governi e condanna l'ordine religioso. Che cosa fareste se vi capitasse di incontrarlo? Se cambiasse la vostra vita. Gli credereste? L'Ultimo Testamento della Sacra Bibbia. Vi sconvolgerà. Vi ferirà. Vi farà paura. Vi farà arrabbiare. Vi farà pensare in modo diverso. Vivere in modo diverso. Vi aprirà gli occhi sul mondo in cui viviamo. Abbiamo aspettato duemila anni l'arrivo del Messia. Lui era qui. Questo libro racconta la sua storia.

Eh. I was hoping to proclaim this Frey’s best work. It sure starts off that way, and I think that says a lot coming from me ‘cause I sort of think he's a li’l punk. Definitely an interesting read, though, and the writing style is pure Frey (you either love him or hate him). He certainly tries to sho Leggi tutto
I never really got the ranting angry bitter Goodreads reviews until now. Seriously, this is a terrible book. I'm not offended by the content or the characterization because I'm a grown up and can understand the concept of fiction. But holy shit you've got to be kidding me James Frey. You've got to b Leggi tutto
I bought this book from Amazon, after reading a short synopsis of it in the back pages of Grazia magazine. I'm halfway through and I refuse to finish it. I know how the story ends and oddly enough, this book moves me more than the actual bible. It makes me sad. It makes me think about life. And most o Leggi tutto
I'm not a religious man by any means. Growing up, my parents never involved me with any part of their religion. I was the kind of kid that had to attend church on Christmas and possibly Easter. Actually, organized religion sort of frightens me and I'm not really quite sure why. I think it has someth Leggi tutto
Náboženství je největší zlo, Bůh tak, jak ho vnímá většina světa, neexistuje, Bible je snůška sci-fi z doby kamenné a duše je blbost. Nebe ani peklo není, jediné, co je na světě důležité, je přítomný život a všeobjímající láska člověka k člověku. Milování. A já to s Benem Zionem, dle některých novým Leggi tutto
Regardless of what you think of Frey, there is no denying the man's talent. I happen to think he's one of our finest writers and the Final Testament is like a summation of Frey's journey: bold, courageous, provocative,obscene, funny, heart-felt, outrageous, shocking, thoughtful, crazy, amazing, head Leggi tutto
After months of hype (from both critics and Frey), "The Final Testament of the Holy Bible" finally landed in the US on Good Friday. As many readers and critics have said, the idea of Jesus Christ returning in the modern era is not exactly a fresh concept--but, then again, neither was a memoir of dru Leggi tutto
Two words: 1. Blasphemous 2. Brilliant First of all, the writing style in this book is SO James Frey. If I hadn’t known who the author was, I would have figured it out in a page or two. I also loved the marketing/packaging. In a bible box, with silver edged pages, and all Ben's words in red. All that Leggi tutto
A man called Ben Zion working on a construction site gets brained by a massive piece of plate glass dropped by a crane but somehow doesn't die. Following his recovery he begins performing miracles, told in the book by his "disciples" - could he be the second coming of Jesus Christ, the Messiah, retu Leggi tutto
What a difficult book to rate! The first 100 pages were brilliant and I couldn't put it down. I was totally sucked in from the beginning and couldn't wait to find out what happened. I loved having the story unfold through the eyes of the different characters. I found it interesting how we never once Leggi tutto
