I just finished Last Night At the Viper Room: River Phoenix and the Hollywood He Left Behind

I have mixed feelings about this book. Some of the reasons I hate this book are the same reasons I liked it. It touched on a part of River that is rarely talked about, his darker side. But then, do we really need to see this part of a person who's good much outweighed his flaws? I'm not sure, except that maybe it shows that he was human, flawed, and just trying to make it through life like everyone else.

As for the technical aspects, this book can be choppy at times as it goes back and forth through time. This may annoy many readers, but for me it did not take too much away from the book. All in all, I think the author was able to do what he set out to do, show a time in Hollywood history that River was very much in the center of.
