Reading a Thousand Lives

I'm a goodreads refugee. I read horror, classics, literary, science fiction, YA, weird, regency romances, historical fiction, history, science, fantasy and random bits and pieces of every genre, it seems like. I don't do as much reading and reviewing as I used to, but I'm trying to get back into the swing of things.

Running with Scissors: A Memoir

Running with Scissors: A Memoir - Meh.I kind of felt like all he did was combine the most disturbing things he could think of into as few pages as possible for the shock factor rather than tell a story, and the effect was, of course, that nothing was all that appalling. It also was kind of sucky that he spent so little time actually getting into his own head--something I quite enjoy about memoirs--everything just seemed to be about adding this shock factor and this shock factor until nothing really mattered at all.That being said, the book was readable and I got through it in merely two days. It wasn't terrible. It was pretty weird. But for me, it wasn't all that interesting.
