Great delivery

by royal7blue on Dec 15, 2008

This book was in great condition and arrived within two days of the order. The book is very good and Augusten Borroughs writes great novels. I ordered all of his books from this same customer. Magical Thinking was another great book. I was literally laughing out loud in airports, buses, and anywhere I had a free moment.


Breaking up with alcohol is hard to do

by HesterPrine08 on Oct 23, 2008

Augusten is now a successful adman living in New York City. And just like his father he has a problem with the bottle. In this chronicle he shares with us his battle to get sober and stay sober. He choses to enter rehab to try to straighten out his life and meets a fellow addict and enters into the cliche co-dependent affair that quickly goes sour. With honesty and humor he shares his ups and downs and what it took to get clean and stay clean.

Another great book by Augusten Burroughs. Although not as compelling as Running With Scissors, the same cheeky writing style is still forthcoming. I tended to feel as if it was getting a bit long-winded about three-quarters of the way through; it was getting repetitive and old -- but I suppose that is the nature of the disease -- doing the same thing over and over again, expecting different results. The character, because he is a rampant alcoholic, is not nearly as sympathetic. At times, I just wanted to shake some sense into him. But, again, I suppose that is the nature of the disease. I think the book gives a pretty accurate depiction of alcoholic thinking. Spot on, really.
