'Burroughs has lived this story, so his delivery perfectly matches the tone and pacing needed. Focusing on a series of failed relationships, Burroughs lets his voice rise in both tension and tenor as he analyzes the reasons, with help from analysis, that some relationships work and others are doomed by the personal quirks of both people.' - AudioFile Magazine

    Burroughs's self-deprecating humor is as funny as it is insightful! I have read ALL of his books and highly recommend this one!

  • Lisa Snyder

    Loved it! Love Augusten, so happy for his happy ending!

  • Whitney Hunter

    I have read all of this authors books, and while not my favorite, it definitely ranks very high . Hearing him narrate added a wonderful element

  • Brint Detwiler

    I have read all of Augusten Burroughs books and I have to say that this one left me wanting more. Not more story, but more introspection, more reflection into what the years and relationships have revealed to him about himself. Given all that he has been through and given his unique talent to convey events, I guess at this stage of his life and writing career I was looking for a bit more"wisdom" or "maturity" in the writing. He remains a very funny guy, but you just get the feeling that all those attempts at humor are masking a deeper, more complex person that I was hoping to meet in this book.
