Chuck Palahniuk


Pages: 1 2 3
If you like Palahniuk you may like Wind-up Bird Chronicle by Haruki Murakami. Is the closest i've founded to Palahniuk.

That's an interesting comparison. Based on Murakami's other books I wouldn't have thought the two were very similar. But it's another reason for me to hurry up and read The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle.

Just read Survivor and Lullaby. Lullaby is definitely the better one, maybe even as good as Fight Club.

He's just so good at grotesque caricatures of modern life. Reading his books makes me despair for the human race while being in awe of Chuck Palahniuk.

Authors like George Orwell and Aldous Huxley wrote about dystopian futures. Palahniuk writes about dystopian presents.

I should email that to myself before some Guardian literary critic reads it.

I've read only The Choke. Recommend for everyone. This book is full of cynicism, but it is understandable: Palahniuk had too long way to publishing. He is like Patrick Süskind with his Perfume: The Story of a Murderer: the hymn to human defects! I had a lot of different emotions after reading The Choke: shame and pleasure, irritation and delight! And my opinion became more full after the film: I admired with Sam Rockwell and his talant - after this film I wanted to wash my hands!

Invisible monsters would be a good movie.
