DNF @ 41%Yeaaah... nope. I don't know what sick sense of humor you people have but this is not humorous in the slightest. It's disturbing and sad and shocking.

3.0 Running with Scissors: A Memoir
I liked it. It's well written and well observed, but I would have liked a little more retrospective-ity-ness about the situations. "Augusten" is mainly a passive observer in these events which I felt weakened the narrative - some further perspective would have been interesting.

Was worth the two or so hours it took to read this on a plane- but not a favorite.
