Yes, I listened to "Running with Scissors" in one sitting. It was one of the strangest books I have ever heard or read, almost hard to believe. However, some of the things in my life have been pretty unbelievable too. I'm glad that Augusten Burroughs could laugh about the insanity and let us in on it. I hope he got some therapy.

I'm also glad that his mom realized that the doc was not a good doctor. ( )

Running with Scissors by Augusten Burroughs (2004)
  arosoff | Jul 10, 2021 |
This book was very difficult for me to rate. While it was very easy to read based on the writing style and I wanted to know what was going to happen to Augusten, I couldn't believe the craziness that was his life... and this is a memoir?! Just goes to show you how screwed up some people are and how resilient people can be. I wish there was more of a follow up at the end to link us to where Augusten ended up (I don't know much of anything about the author) so would have liked to know. I hate rating memoirs and autobiographies because it's a person's life, and I never end up rating them very highly because nonfiction and I aren't the best of friends, but this was one of the better ones I have read. I give it 3.5* overall. ( )

More of a 3.5 than a 4. More to do with how certain subjects were presented than the writing itself, cause Burroughs is a damn good writer. Very much interested in the film version now. ( )

You will either love Running With Scissors or you will hate it. I loved it. OK, there are tedious passages, when you feel Burroughs is doing the writerly equivalent of adding extra stuffing to a perfectly comfortable beanbag. But it is impossible not to laugh at all the jokes; to admire the sardonic, fetid tone; to wonder, slack-jawed and agog, at the sheer looniness of the vista he conjures up.
afegit per Nevov | editaThe Observer, Rachel Cooke (Feb 23, 2003)
 
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.
