    I have never actually finished a book. Not even for school. I would always skim through or Google the synopsis. 
    Today I not only finished a book, but I finished it in 5 hours; when usually I would read a few chapters. Put it down.
    Then pick it back up 7 years later. Main reason is because each page is a completely different story from the last
    and for what page comes next.  It's not written in the TYPICAL WRITERS FORM that starts out with too much in depth
    boring details of information for 4 chapters straight and sentences written in such dull taste. This book is not like that at all.
    It had comedic fictitious stories and honest heartbreaking truth of his life. Yes, there are pictures, but they are more drawings in a comic book form.
    Felt more like a journal than anything.  I am the MOST DIFFICULT PERSON TO PLEASE when it comes to reading. I don't even like reading magazines. I highly recommend this book. I LOVE it. Even started reading it over again because I felt with each story being different I might have missed something or miss interpreted something. I can't put it down.

    Weird Book O.o?

    It was a very strange read... But I liked it.

    I Also Recommend:

    humorous,touching and surprisingly entertaining

    When I first saw the book, I thought " Macaulay Culkin can write? You must have been kidding me" back after opening the book I find myself unable to take my eyes off of it ( I finished the first 50 pages at Barnes and Nobles and decided that I have to buy it!) Culkin takes us into places where its half fictional and half truth, the book is full of humor yet somehow behind everyone of those jokes is a painful story behind it....I felt as if he was talking to me the entire time throughout the novel, and by the time it ends i felt as if i know who this person is. Despite what critic said, Junior is probaby the best book I have ever read * and believe me i read a lot* the story folds itself from the beginning till end, and its painful to see how many times Culkin tried to end the book but did not...at the ending however is most satisfying, whether youre a child, a teenager, a young adult, or an old person, Junior is set out for you to read...

    unpredictably great

    when i first saw that there was a book out by macaulay culkin, i thought here comes another stupid book by a wannabe actor. but my intrigue got the best of me and i decided to read it, after which, i was pleasantly surprised. although this is not a story, in itself, but rather a collection of thoughts, poetry and mini cartoons, it is a reflection on growing up and becoming your own person. although confusing at times, mainly because of its lack of a timeline or plot, junior is a book that many 20-somethings, among others, could definitely relate to. it accurately reflects the way lives can be misleading, difficult, addictive, yet oh so wonderful at the same time. it's that contradiction that makes the book so great. culkin depicts a miserable, unhappy character throughout the book, yet somehow it gives you this amazing feeling of hope for the possibility of something better and something happy. all and all, i would say this is one of my new favorite books. it's realism, truthfulness and incite into, perhaps a misunderstood soul, is uplifting as this book of randomness could apply to anyone going through a life-altering experience.

    A very enticing and disorienting debut

    I have never been a fan of Macaulay Culkin, but when I came across the book and read the horrible reviews of it, I had to buy it. I managed to read the whole thing from cover to cover without hesitation. It is very interesting if you are not looking for a plot or structure. It is far from a novel, but it is not intended to be one. It is a random collection of thoughts, lists, doodles, letters, and more. Despite the lack of structure, the writing talent is clearly there, and it was very enjoyable. An open-minded reader will enjoy it, while anyone expecting a sensable book will be clearly disappointed. I would recommend it to abstract thinkers with a unique sense of humor.

    Interesting Indeed!

    I've read the book and found it to be rather interesting. There were some parts that were a little confusing but all in all it was a good read and if you're a fan of Macaulay Culkin you'll enjoy it.
