He puts the fun in dysfunction!
A brilliantly funny book that proves you can have a very unfunny childhood and still laugh about it ( after the fact!). His dry wit and turn of a phrase left me smiling. I felt like I knew him and his family. He puts the fun in dysfunction and came out a survivor!

This book comes with many laughs. Although I never got the whole naked barbie doll for a cover. I remember I started this book in a waiting room. I guess its odd watching a 14 year old girl laughing out loud while reading a book with a naked barbie doll going on.

A Must-Read
After reading this book, it has flown to the top of my top favorites list. Hilarious, touching, and brutally honest, I found this to be a completely captivating compilation of well written stories.

At my age, 14, this kind of humor is all I expect out of a book. My mom was listening to it in the car on the way to camp, and I didn't get what was so funny, but then three years later, I'm here, listening to it and I hardly have enough breath left to talk.

This is laugh-out-loud funny - a terrific read!

I was expecting a lot of laughs from this book. Many people said it was very funny. I found it very sad, and felt sorry for him. The family life was not funny to me. It is a dysfunctional family, which I have found ALL families are. But to dump all your dirty stuff out; I just did not 'get' the humor. I would be very upset if it were my brother doing these about me. I must be too sensitve, but I am glad. I know his writing style is not for me, LOL. Our bookclub chose this one. I did finish it also, so give myself credit for that! :)
