Meet Junior. He does not know how to write a book. (Except -- maybe -- for this one.) His therapist says he has issues with closure. (Granted, this book has seven endings.) This is not a novel. (Everything in it is entirely...more
The reviews have been bad. I guess the people who say such ugly things about this book either didn't read it in it's entirety, didn't bother flipping through ...more

(I can picture) Macaulay: "Sucker!"
He basically tells you in the beginning that hey, if you're dumb enough to buy this book, well then you're gullible enough to believe the load of horseshit he's about to feed you. And what's so great abou ...more
He had his moment in the spotlight during the Nineties, and even today, as evident from his drug use, his "pizza band" (don't ask, but the guy seriously has a 20 minute long YouTube video of himself doing nothing except eating a piece of pizza, what the hell?) and his immature beh ...more
It was like a blog, kind of, but without any continuity or time line. Some of the pieces were articulated well, but it was hard to care because the serious bits were about two paragraphs long and so out of place with the silly rhyming poems and alliterations, that they just came out of left field. Therefor hard to take them all that serious. But I don't see how it could possibly have been meant to take seriou ...more
When I was eight I was obsessed - we're talking unanswered letters, reading all his unauthorized bios, seeing meaningful darkness behind the cute child actor - I piiiiined, you don't even know!
So I bought this book. And I read it. And screw all of you.
So he can't write, he admits it. We're the suckers for buying the book and reading the damn thing.
But really it isn't very good.
Funny. I expect more of my once and future husband.
It was definitely worth the read, since I am a fan of his work.
And the last two pages had me in tears. I found it funny that he was so worried about not ending on a ...more
But for the most part, not even halfway through I got really bored with it. I would take it with me to the laundromat to kill time, or try and get some reading done before bed, but every time I just wished I had chosen to read something else. I mean, the laundromat? I could have been watching my cloth ...more
I knew going in that this was not to be taken very serious. I'd seen interviews with him when he was promoting the book, and knew what to expect. I chose to proceed because I thought anyone who watched Singin' in the Rain 50 times straight might have something interesting to say. Some ...more
My father. My brother. My father. My mother. My other brother. My father. My first time. My childhood acting aspirations. My father. The price of fame. My grandfather. My father. Alcoholism. Anger. My father. Sadn ...more
The stories jump around like a mexican jumping bean. At one point you are reading a story about a child then you are reading about an experience this boy had in a bathroom and then reading about things they dislike.
I did enjoy though to see what kind of material would come from this famous person. I d ...more
People who are dead
Things that are important
Reasons Junior (Macaulay Culkin) doesn't write letters
People that the book is dedicated to
People that the book is NOT dedicated to
So basically, not useful. Mildly interesting in the "wow he's kind of messed up" sort of way, and has ...more
