Running With Scissors

Post by street spirit (fade out). on Sun 28 Sep 2008, 12:48 pm

Written by Augusten Burroughs, this book is a memoir which describes his mother's unusual behavior and the relationship with her unorthodox shrink, Dr. Finch, as well as the teenage boy's relationship with 33-year-old Neil Bookman.

It has also been made into a movie, which I haven't seen, but this book is at the top of my list with "Choke".

Discuss.

It's a book? I was not aware.
I'll have to find it.

The movie was incredible. I loved it.

It was made into a movie, but I haven't seen it.
Some things may be different though.

I bought it one day about a year ago at Target for the sake of buying a book. The title and cover seemed interesting, so why not? I loved it. nawwww
Now I wanna read it again, but I have no idea where it is. LMFAOOO

Smooth. LMFAOOO

My friend Josh (who, ironically, read it at the same time as I did) reminds me so much of Augusten in the book, but I don't think they've been through the same thing...

I'm like my friends personal library: they're always taking books from me. LMFAOOO
One of them hopefully has it.
And hopefully they're done with it so I can read it again.

I've read everything by Augusten Burroughs. whatnow? O_O
He absolutely fascinates me, and his sense of humor is amazing.
"Sellevision", his first fiction novel, is ridicoulously funny.

I really liked the content of that book, but I thought the writing was poor. I could barely get involved in what was going on (but that's just me! [however I do think i have excellent taste]) and the only reason I kept reading was because it was so gloriously fucked up, I had to!

I hope someone can identify with that.
