The Adderall Diaries

The Adderall DiariesThe Adderall Diaries by Stephen Elliott. I bought this book after I heard that James Franco had bought the movie rights. I like Franco as an actor, and I like that he’s done some weird things with his career lately. The title and premise of the book seemed interesting and I wanted something kind of wanted something different to read, so I thought I would go for it.

This is a true story. Stephen Elliott was suffering from writer’s block and decided to write a true crime novel about the murder trial of a computer programmer in the San Francisco area. He ended up with this book, which is part memoir and part recount of the trial. I guess covering the trial made him think about his past. I really enjoyed reading this book.  Elliott’s life is kind of sad to me, with the substance abuse, failed relationships, and father/son drama.   He and some of the players in the murder mystery confirmed that there are some messed up people in the world. Yes, I’m being judgmental. It makes me glad my upbringing was stable and my life right now is fairly normal and boring.
