BAM October Book Club Book

I read this book last week. I thought the movie seemed interesting. I had previously read some of his short stories and thought they were hilarious. I needed something different.

It highly disturbed me. Has anyone else read it? Am I being too narrow-minded with this? Did it bother you?

I'm glad I have read it, but now I'm looking for something a little more upbeat. Ideas and/or suggestions are welcome.

I'm almost halfway done. There have been parts that freaked me out and I'm not easily freaked. I'll talk about it with you at school. Overall, I think he needed a better editor to catch some of those horrible similies. Plus, the whole "where is he living now" thing got confusing. MAGICAL THINKING was better so far.

My computer's freaking out and I can't read your whole post, but I have been wanting to read this book (and see the movie)...How disappointing that you aren't liking it! (As I like to follow your recommendations!) My nap and long run chewed up my whole afternoon yesterday, leaving me with no phone talking time. Maybe this week...I want to catch up!
