Again, another one that I couldn't put down. Started it on my 10 minute break at work yesterday...had to finish it before I could go to bed! I agree - the transformation seemed quick...but I was so hooked I didn't care. Although it DID make me feel more stressed out about school, I have to say, just reading about him being stressed out about it. Plus, reading the book = procrastinating.

I grabbed this book off the shelf at my high school thinking it was just another book i could skim through for a good grade, but it really had a big influence on me. I love the way Vizzini writes and the big picture his books portray at the end. Craig Gilner's story was a joyride and I can't wait to read more of Vizzini's stuff.

I actually loved Craig's voice. I felt attached to him because I've felt like him before. Reading Ned Vizzini's first book (Teen Angst.. naah) after reading It's Kind of a Funny Story filled in some of the emotional blanks in the novel. Learning about the author sometimes adds another dimension to a book - here's a great interview (http://figment.com/blog/).Anyway, I love the book and I love Ned's writing style.


You have a very insightful review. :)

Here's mine if you don't mind: http://lorxiebookreviews.blogspot.com/2013/03/its-kind-of-funny-story-by-ned-vizzini.html
