This is the second reading of this book, and I believe I appreciated it more this time around. I enjoy Roth. I would not say he is my favorite writer, but i do find his topics facinating. This book, I find very typical Roth - when he is telling the s ...more

Running with Scissors by Augusten Burroughs

I saw the movie first, and I must say that i enjoyed that more. The movie was able to tie these bizar stories up, even though they took some liberties. This is not to say I did not enjoy this book. Burroughs is a great and funny story teller, and of ...more
