i just finished reading running with scissors by augusten burroughs. this book was crazy. it's hard to believe that the stories are actually real. it's about an extremely dysfunctional family and, at times, it was funny. however, most of the time, i was either completely shocked by what i was reading or just straight out disgusted! the author is gay, so there were several very graphic descriptions of homosexual sex. and i'm not going to lie, i was quite disturbed. i was NOT ready for that level of detail. overall though, this book was an easy and fast read for me. i just became so intrigued by how weird it was!
all i know is after reading this, i feel so grateful for the family and life that i have!
