Craig's suicidal episode gets him checked into a mental hospital, where his new neighbors include a transsexual sex addict, a girl who has scarred her own face with scissors, and the self-elected President Armelio. There, Craig is finally able to confront the sources of his anxiety. Ned Vizzini, who himself spent time in a psychiatric hospital, has created a remarkably moving tale about the sometimes unexpected road to happiness.

Entertaining story with a funny narrator
What made the experience of listening to It's Kind of a Funny Story the most enjoyable?
The quirky characters involved in interaction with the main character and how he sees them.
Who was your favorite character and why?
I really liked the professor and the other older black woman with no teeth.. they had a lot of character and provided for some very comedic scenes.
Which character – as performed by Robert Fass – was your favorite?
My favorite was Jimmy...Robert Fass's voice of Jimmy's character was hilarious and very believable.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
The book certainly made me laugh, I think that the narration (Robert Fass) played a large role in that. An excellent audio book to me is one that provides a very detailed description of the scene, characters, and if the narrator is able to portray all of the characters in different ways and voices as to bring life to them and create a picture in my mind.

It's Kind of an Acceptable Middle School Book
Was expecting a humorous take on a teen's POV entering a mental hospital. What I read was sophomoric and moderately interesting. The main character probably has autism and suffers from depression with thoughts of suicide. He meets a gaggle of odd characters, as to be expected, and finally reaches his revelation. This wasn't worth my full credit, although it's not terrible and I wouldn't return it. On sale, good bet. You can also check this out from your library and skim it, saving your credit.
