Way too long,
This review is from: It's Kind of a Funny Story: A Novel (Hardcover)
The author is a good writer, it's just that he seems to have fallen in love with his own writing. There's way too little action for a 400-plus page book. This book goes on and one and on. The Burn Journals is a much better, more intense, more realistic view of teenage depression. The romantic encounters at the end were a bit too unbelieveable.

I agree that this book was too long but don't agree about the Burn Journals, which I really didn't like. I learned a lot about burn treatment but nothing about depression and how the author came to set himself on fire.
