3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting not hilarious, 9 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Running With Scissors (Kindle Edition)
This is a very adult book about childhood, you have to keep reminding yourself that throughout this period of his life the writer was a young boy / teenager. I love quirky but did not laugh out loud at the events. I understand that it contains some gallows type humour but the subject matter is serious, I didn't get the feeling that the writer was laughing much through this period. It is an interesting, thought-provoking read, some great one liners and insights. If you are looking for a read about a very unusual family then this fits the bill.
