Book Review-preview: Running with Scissors

You can't really write a review until you have read the book, and I'm only on page 87 with 228 to go.  So here is what I MIGHT say if my 27% of the book is any indication.

The book is Running with Scisors by Augusten Burroughs.  I am reading it because it was handed o me, and because it is being made into a movie, and because I saw a television interview with Burroughs.

I want to know what makes it such a best-seller.  And I have figured out that you meet so many weird characters, that no matter how weird YOU are, compared to the characters you feel normal. So that's good, isn't it?  A book that make you feel good about yourself.

I'll probably have more to say about it after I read another 27%

Yes, my thoughts exactly...even a WEIRD family doesn't seem so weird.
