This book is such a random collection of crap. Some books can be random and still engage the reader; however, this book is "written" so awfully that I can't believe it has even been published. I can't imagine the person who had to proofread it. He/she drew the short straw for that assignment. I wasted 20 minutes of my life reading it, and I won't ever get that time back.

To start with, I'm not faulting Culkin for getting his feelings out or expressing himself creatively. Nor am I minimizing the emotional turmoil of his childhood and its resultant scars on his psyche.

What I AM faulting, however, is his (and the publisher's) decision to publish this. Everbody has the equivalent in an old spiral notebook from 7th grade stashed in a closet. If Culkin wasn't Culkin it never would have escaped. Its not enlightening, its not compelling, there's nothing here that's fresh or inspiring. Its just a guy working out his emotional "issues" (like most have) with clumsy bad awkward pretentious writing (again, like most have).

Threw this book in the trash where it belongs before finishing it.
I can't think of a worse book that I've read in the past than this.

I read this book last year and literally hadn't thought about it until now, then decided to write a review.

1. As many have mentioned it is extremely random. Some of it's funny, most of it is his own humor and not very funny.
2. I probably have some of the same sentences and awful writing in a long-forgotten middle school journal.
3. Not an interesting read and would have NEVER been published, EVER, if he wasn't famous. Throughout the entire book I kept thinking, "Wow, this was great enough to published?! WTF." It's unique, I'll give him that, but not in a good way.
4. He has a lot of unresolved daddy issues. He needs to go to therapy, not bash on his father to the whole world. It would be different if it was a memoir or autobiography, but it's not.
5. Towards the end of the book you can tell he's just trying to finish it because he's been writing in it for so long and the publisher is getting after him.

This book is not compelling or very interesting. If you want a better read, bust out your old school note books or journals. Seriously. You will have a much better time strolling through your own random memories than someone else's.

My advice: Do NOT buy it on Amazon, it's not even worth the 5 something dollars being charged. I would, however, read it if it's at your local library or a friend has it.
Stick with movies, Macaulay.

This was not even a book, it was a whiny act of mentally throwing up.

"Oh, poor me, my life is so hard, so I'll make a bunch of lists and say I wrote a book...."

I am really, truly disgusted that I bought this book and spent an hour reading it.

Here's the scoop, boys and girls:

An agent got this unconnected mass of papers (I kid you not, that's what this is) through someone's door based on the name and one-time celebrity of the potty-mouthed person who wrote this, it got published because someone figured the name on the cover would sell a few copies, and thusly the world got Junior: the most horrible thing I have ever read in my life. (And why did I read it? Because of the name on the cover. So you see, the publisher's scheme worked.)

Complete and utter drivel. Thoughtless, self-important, and lazy. This is not a real book.

This book contains lots of profanity. Seems like it was written like foolish doodling on a computer and was published that way. It is original; but my opinion is that only is 10% worth reading.

Out of curiosity (and having some time to kill), I picked up (but put it back within a few minutes, I assure you) this alleged work at a local bookstore. I admit that I never been a fan of young Culkin and he's given me no reason to become one now. The only thing sadder than what I saw between its covers is the notion that someone might actually pony up their hard-earned money to own such foolishness. This potty-mouthed ex-star even devoted a whole page to repeatedly dropping the "F bomb" in a letter to his father--and that's about as erudite as he gets. Another example of wasted space and readers' time is when he lists (just for the fun of listing, I guess) the names of dead people. Real impressive, Son. Anyone looking to give away their money should find a worthwhile charity and leave this book alone. Incidentally, I gave it one star here only because I had to give it at least that to offer this more-generous-than-it-deserves review in hopes of preventing the unsuspecting from investing in such self-indulgent nonsense.
