review:
Literary Perfection isn’t the right word, but it’s the first one that comes to mind.

I think…. I think… I think I can’t believe I waited so long to start reading Chuck Palahniuk. I was intimidated by the unique style of writing I assumed he had (because of the type of reader who have recommended him to me in the past and because I watched Fight Club.) but once I overcame my completely unfounded fear (I didn’t commit too completely – I borrowed this book from my library. Seriously – it’s like Netflix for books) I devoured it. Pun intended.

This book is about so many strange and wonderful things, not only, and not completely, but mostly about a man that is a)a sex addict b) totally effed up and c) fake chokes on food in restaurants to endear strangers to himself.

I loved every single second spent reading this book. I fully intend on reading every single thing the man every writes. If he publishes a grocery shopping list I will download it to my kindle the moment it becomes available.
