Did you ever hear, see or read something so sickening and disturbing that you had the overwhelming desire to scrub yourself with an SOS pad and then bathe in a bathtub full of antiseptic 50 times?

That’s just how I felt tonight.

I love to read, I love to especially read best sellers....and even more than that I LOVE to read books that are soon to be movies. Maybe it’s because I like to feel connected to others in some way and by reading the same words that thousands of people did, do or are in the process of doing, it makes me I feel like I’m a part of something world wide.

That is the main reason I purchased the book: “Running with Scissors” .

Tonight I read 100 or so pages and felt sick...the kind of sick that is emotional and spiritual. After reading those pages I knew it was only going to get worse. I couldn’t even bring myself to put it on my bookshelf and let any of my friends who I swap books with read it. I had to immediately bring it out into my backyard and do this to it:

And even after I knew that it was ashes and would never fall into the hands of any other person, I still felt like I needed to visit a mental health professional who would tell me I’m okay and that everything will all be alright.

I am totally serious. That book is sick, creepy, abnormal and unhealthy.

That definitely sounds like a book to stay away from.

BTW, I love the New York skyline picture you use for your blog banner.

sounds like the PERFECT spot for a book like that.

Man, I haven't heard of this book or movie, but it must have been horrendous. I love what you did to it. I hope the movie flops!

I don't watch too many movies, but I usually don't like any movie made from a book that I have read. It seems to me that they just ruin a really good book by not following the real story. Especially John Grisham's books.

Thanks for the great review...will definitely not read the book nor see the movie.
I haven't visited in a while..vacation and all...I see I have some catching up to do. Will get right on reading your "best seller" blog momentarily, but wanted to pop in and say hi first. the pic of are so lovely...I seriously mean that.

Alrighty then! Now that's principle! Good for you. I don't know if I've even heard of that book/movie so I won't miss it.

Lolly said...

Wow, I'll try to remember that!

Monica said...

Hmm. I just heard of this upcoming movie when I watched Nip/Tuck Tuesday night. I can't remember now what the premise was but it piqued my curiosity. Now I'm wracking my brain trying to remember what it was. Such a strong reaction is cause for concern!
