By Chuck Palahniuk
Finally finished this book. I didn’t like how it was arranged at all. It is a collection of short stories loosely and recklessly tied together by an unexciting main ‘plot,’ but I dug his style. I’ll definitely be reading more of his novels, but I have no doubts that my introduction to Palahniuk was through his weakest work.
I have to entirely disagree. I thought this was thoroughly one of his strongest works as a writer. He worked various mechanisms, such as story metaphor, allegory, poetry, as well as sub-plots, character development, etc. in such a way that really blew me away even upon the second read. His weakest work is definitely Tell-All or Snuff. This one might be an acquired taste, since I seem to be one of the few who thinks it is his best work. But it’s a love story disguised as a horror novel. Even Stephen King praised it. I mean, the KING praised it.
I totally agree with yen-yaw. I’m not sure why more people don’t praise this novel, I love it. And yes, his weakest work is probably Tell-All (aand I kind of liked Snuff but oh well).
