Ebook Ó Running with Scissors ê Augusten Burroughs

Running with Scissors is the true story of a boy whose mother a poet with delusions of Anne Sexton gave him away to be raised by her unorthodox psychiatrist who bore a striking resemblance to Santa Claus So at the age of twelve Burroughs found himsel I found this book profoundly disturbing and torturous to read I understand that it is cleansing and theraputic for those that have been traumitized to writetalk aobut their problems to help with the healing process There are very few things that my ironclad stomach can't suffer and my brain is developed enough to handle even the most shocking of situations This book tested my patience from begining to end and in the end I was very dissapointedFirst off from reviews and the book cover I was given the impression that regardless of the contents within that this was a humurous look at this parcitular authors teenage years What I found instead were rampant displays of sloth decay and enough illegal activities to jail every one of the characters for 5 15 years in a PMIA prison Debauchery doesn't disurb me in the slightest and I have a pension for books that provide plenty of shock and awe regardless of the legality Secondly the fact that such a gathering of mentally fucked people was not only allowed but encouraged disurbs me greatlymostly because I find that this is an unfortunate circumstance that can be found in any city any where in the world The truth of the book is what made me hate it Rather than having hope for the characters I found that I wanted to euthanize them all just to end their misery But hey three chapters of development and then putting them all down like rabbid dogs would have made for an even worse bookOn a final note SPOILER ALERT if I was expecting a book detailing the disgusting side of middle America horrendous images of mental illness gay molestation and multiple lives ruined from neglect and substandard care I might have enjoyed it and found nothing humurous or uplifting on how the author presentedThis might be a rare case where I don't bother to even give an author a second chance because of how bad this book was
