Everything Is Wrong with Me: A Memoir of an American Childhood Gone, Well, Wrong - Jason Mulgrew
This is one of my first DNFs (did not finish) in a while. This book is marketed as a comic memoir, and it tries really hard to be that. At the end of the day, it's a little too bipolar for me. The tone is too uneven. In one sentence, the author will be talking about something fairly serious, and then he throws in a manic stupid joke. I understand that the book is billed as funny, but dude, you're allowed to be serious sometimes without throwing a half-assed joke in there. I think I would have been fine with the intermingling of comedy and more serious topics (such as his parents' divorce) had the author had a more subtle hand. Alas, no such luck. It wasn't terrible, and it did succeed in being funny sometimes, just not enough to keep me reading.
