Overall, a good book - makes you sorry for the conditions that this young, disturbed boy grew up in. The graphic gay sex scenes were difficult to listen to and I found myself dreading multiple scenes - in truth, there were only two very graphic ones and overall the book was worth it. I don't think I'll get another one of his books, though, just because of the gay sex scenes which tended to be very violent.

Absolutely incredible crazy! If you liked The Glass Castle, you may also like this. I am never offended by the F word and enjoy oddities, thus this book grabbed my interest.
