This book is HILARIOUS. So funny and if you like David Sedaris, you should love this one. FUNNY stuff.

I have read the book "Magical Thinking" and I have came to find this book very cringe worthy as well. I am only half way through it (well 100 pages to go) and it is so well written just like other books. This author is a horrible man with his twisted ways (not to be rude to him) but this book made me cringe a lot and made me think of how bland my life is compared to his which is full of snooping, drugs, alcohol, and lots more... not that I would want to live a life like that... but my life is boring and could never be put into a book like his, he captures daily things and his thoughts and words makes the ordinary seem extraordinary. I love this book, when I have the money I may just buy a copy of all of the books this man has written thus far in his life. I find this book funny and well written.

the author is funny in a sarcastic sort of way, but I got tired of his anecdotes. First world problems.

If I had to pick I would say Possible Side Effects was my least favorite Augusten Burroughs book. It's still somewhat sad and funny at the same time. I found myself laughing out loud on the train a few times. The author is a great storyteller and has had some experiences worth sharing (others you wish you didn't know).

Before reading this, or any other Burroughs book, read Running With Scissors first. It helps to have the background story to this man's strange life.
