Augusten Burroughs childhood was not your average childhood. Most of us don't have our insane mothers sending us packing to go live with their shrink. If that wasn't bad enough, the household members of the Finch family - blood and adopted - are also crazy. And definitely not tidy. Not in any sense of the word. . . .

This book was funny, sad, vulgar (mainly vulgar, actually). The one person I was actually liking was Hope until the cat incident. She never seemed quite right to me after that but I'm not sure why I thought initially she was semi-normal. Augusten has an affair with an older man when he is a young teenager. I had no problem with that being in this story but I ended up skipping some chapters about their sex life. (Did I mention the vulgar part of this book?) I didn't feel the graphic depictions of their relationship enhanced the book other than to emphasize just how messed up this whole thing really was.

There were some rather disgusting things in this book. I don't even know what to say about the scatalogical fortune telling chapter. Like, what???? Did I really read that? Did that really happen? Yet I kept reading. I really did need to know how this ended. I appreciated the epilogue.

Did some googling and saw the "Finch" family sued him for two million dollars. Hmmmm.

I can't say I would recommend this book to anyone but it's been on my to-read list for so long I'm actually glad I read it. (Except now I can't get some of these images out of my mind. Make it go away, please. . . .) ( )

I accidentally read this book having purchased the copy to give to Beth as a present, but she'd already read it. I stopped half way thru since I wasn't real interested in this poor kid's life; never been too, too interested in teenage protagonists. Plus, it sounded a little bit too much for the real world. Anyway, a month later, it's still on my pile of books, I had nothing to read, so I continued. Ah, well. It did get a little better, a little more interesting. But not much. This article about the "Finches" lawsuit is even more to think about:

Disturbing but very funny. ( )

The book, which promotes visceral responses (of laughter, wincing, retching) on nearly every page, contains the kind of scenes that are often called harrowing but which are also plainly funny and rich with child's-eye details of adults who have gone off the rails.
