Yes, I am Number Four is $2.99 today.
I'm vaguely tempted to buy it, but only because it's a book I feel I should read—due to the brouhaha that briefly surrounded Frey's fiction factory and because it was made into a movie, etc.—rather than a book that I really want to read.

I skimmed a couple of pages and my inner line editor started to twitch and grope for a pen. In combination with the whole James Frey plus fiction factory issue, that was enough for me.

Don't bother,I read it before I knew all the James Frey stuff and still thought it was poorly written and edited.

Ditto what CJ said - I read it not realizing it was his, and was twitching. Finding out it WAS his, I wanted to fling it across the room...

The only thing I found interesting about this book is the fact that some chapters are better written than others. And when I found out about the Frey factory of students writing, I realized different people wrote the chapters. Well, that is what I have inferred...
