I did not care for this book very much. I thought Running With Scissors was much better in terms of writing and overall entertainment.
This story sort of rambled on through the rather terrible childhood of the author. At the end of it all, I felt pretty depressed and confused about the overall message of the work... if there was one.
It took me quite some time to get through this book, as it did not read comfortably. Looking back, the story was rather repetitive and anticlimactic.
It's hard to write a negative review considering the author is relating the very personal tale of his unfortunate childhood... but I just didn't care for it.
