Barely acceptable; nothing like the entertaing, captivating "Dry" or "Running with Scissors",

This review is from: Magical Thinking: True Stories (Hardcover)
"Dry" and "Running with Scissors" were fascinating, moving, and frightening memoirs by Augusten Burroughs. Both were worth every minute spent reading them. But "Magical Thinking" is just a random collection of experiences that make Augusten Burroughs seem insensitive and cold. Perhaps that was his goal. Few stories in "Magical Thinking" are fundamentally entertaining. The ones that are, however, almost (but not quite) make it worth reading. I'd take a pass and read something else if I had my time back.
