How was the book running with scissors?

Running With Scissors, in my opinion, was a great book (as are many of Augusten Burroughs memoirs). Burroughs has a great writing style: simple enough that you do not get caught up with all of the fancy diction and syntax, but full of intellect! I think one of the reasons why I most like Running with Scissors is that he really exposed you to the craziest and most tragic side of mental illness, while still emphasizing that nothing in life should be taken too seriously...and everything bad has a funny silver lining.

I never really cried reading it, I just laughed really hard at some of the ludicrous events in this poor guys childhood and how he interprets these events with levity later on in his life.
