really liked it
bookshelves: own, winter-2011-12
Read from November 30 to December 29, 2011

Fucked up, hilarious, sarcastic, original, disturbing, witty, sad, weird, strange, odd, clever, unsettling, worth it.

The only reason I'm not giving this 5 stars is because there were some really unnecessary pages/words. I skipped right over the brand dropping and the music chapters.

Katy Craig i must admit i skipped the music chapters

Margot I will in the future. When he starts naming shit I skip right over. I like it a lot but there's too much unnecessary stuff smh. I guess it's all part of it, that it's all Patrick cares about, like you said, but it's getting old.

Katy Craig yeah it got old, but after a while I either stopped being annoyed by it or stopped noticing it. I was reading it one chapter at a time too because I was so freaked out, it's easier to deal with the blah blah in little chunks.

Margot I go to bed right after reading it. Needless to say I've been dreaming about Christian Bale a lot.

Katy Craig I was too, girl, so much.
