Ryan Gosling on Shel Silverstein’s The Giving Tree

That book is so fucked up; that story’s the worst. I mean, at the end the tree is a stump and the old guy just sitting on him…he’s just used him to death, and you’re supposed to want to be the tree? Fuck you. You be the tree. I don’t want to be the tree.

I finally read that book late last year; I don’t remember having read it as a child.  Anyway, I kind of have to agree with Ryan.  That book is a total downer!
