I read it last spring. I laughed out loud constantly. I really liked the writing style. It reminded me a lot of David Sedaris. (whom i also love.) have you read it/listened to it or were you looking for reviews before you did?
I read it as part of a book club and rated it "okay". I wouldn't read it again though. IMO the movie was absolutely horrible. Oh, and I can't stand David Sedaris' writing : I just don't appreciate that type of humor at all.
I loved the book but hated the movie. It just didn't do the book justice. Augusten Burroughs brother has a book out that's pretty good. Not as funny but an interesting look into the life of someone w/ Asperger's. Although some of his stories are a little hard to believe. It's call Look Me in the Eye and his name is John Robison if anyone's interested.
I read most of it. I didn't really find it that funny, although it did have a few moments. There came a point in the book that I found just too disturbing and I couldn't get past it so I returned it to the friend I borrowed it from.
I really liked the book (the movie, not so much), but I LOVED his other books! Dry and Magical Thinking tie for my favorites, but I really liked Possible Side Effects too. It's been so long since I read his novel Sellevision that I barely remeber it, but I'm pretty sure I liked that one too. I haven't read his latest A Wolf at the Table yet, but I will soon. I'm also planning to read his brother's book.
