Definitely an interesting read, but personally, I found it a little hollow. I was expecting some kind of grandiose enlightenment to be expressed, but it just didn't happen.
I have to admit that I couldn't get through this one. Palahnuik's unique and normally entertaining style seemed to wear a bit thin. Maybe he's losing his touch, or maybe I've just been reading too much by this author. In any case, his earlier work is much better. (Fight Club, Invisible Monsters)
Wow- I love Palahniuk, even if I can't pronounce his name! This is one of his best! Really dark, edgy humor though. Not for the easily offended.
good book...combination of religous fanatacisim and fame in our society and its contrived nature
This is one really screwed up book. I've always said that to be in Stephen King's head must be a scary place, but I'm starting to wonder if Chuck Palahniuk's head is even scarier. How does one sit down and come up with stuff like this? There were a few things that were a bit of a let down, but the ending totally played with my head. It didn't sit in my brain with all the other "Fertility" hints we had been given. I was ready to throw things around until I found the author's website where he explains it. Ahhh... now I feel better :)
Do NOT go to this link if you haven't read the book. Seriously!
