Last Night at the Viper Room: River Phoenix and the Hollywood He Left Behind by Gavin Edwards

Last Night at the Viper Room is a memorable read. The time frame follows his life from birth to death.

River Phoenix was a rising star that had a promising life ahead of him, however his trouble life wasn't something he could put behind him.... no amount of success was enough to stir him  away from his addiction, that ultimately lead to his death.

His family lead a very unusual life, bizarre one would say. They belonged to a cult and the life and beliefs of that cult, took some of the shine out of, Phoenix causing him to resort to other methods in order to heal his soul.

This is an informative, gripping account of River's life. You will be hooked in from page one. This is perhaps one of the most detailed biographies, I have ever read.

A great book for any,  River Phoenix fan.

Grade: A
