He's the single best writing style ever. lmfao
Ahbrow I know! His new book is about some guy purposely spreading STD's I think. It many not be new to you, but it's just been released over here. He is so stylistic in his stories. I loved reading Stranger Than Fiction it provided so much new insight to his story writing.

THIRD THAT!

Chuck Palahniuk should be crowned as like, king of writing. .___.

I'm gonna make a list of my favourite books.
And all of them, just so happen to be his.

In order:
1. Haunted
2. Survivor
3. Rant
4. Choke
5. Diary
6. Lullaby
7. Fight Club
8. Invisible Monsters
9. Stranger Than Fiction
10. Fugitives and Refugees.

And I absolutely cannot wait until Snuff.
I have so much to look forward to in 2008 Cassie

I pretty much fell in love with haunted when I read the back cover. Then I proceeded to fail to hold in my laughter from some of the first chapters in the middle of the library. That resulted in some pretty bad looks. Anyways, that book is just excellent.

It sucks though, cause after I started reading his stuff. Now every other author is just like, crap. I can't find anyone good enough anymore. Confused

Is there a thread for him somewhere? I'm way too lazy to look through everywhere for one.

I love how gorgy the 'Haunted' stories are, yet how amusing I find them. Really contrasts the reactions my friends get. Infact many of them tend to avoid me now.

Yeah, actually that's why I stopped showing my friends the books I read.
But, cause the way that he writes it, it's like they're a bit disturbing, but they're really very amusing.
I don't know, some people just aren't into that kinda stuff. Like, I've heard it described as 'psychopathic' and shit. I think it's just good writing.

Maybe it's because I'm immature, but "gory" things like that don't disturb me. Just plain amuse me. D:
I remember when "Guts" was circling the internet, and it was one of those things labelled "I bet you can't read this whole story without feeling sick".
I just laughed. Molly

Also, I searched the board, and there's no thread on him.. I'm making one. Cassie

ohh yay! I'm gonna go post there after this. Psycho
Dude, 'Guts' was the reason I was laughing so hard in the library.
I don't see why people don't find it funny.
Did you hear about that girl that it actually happened to her? Well, she wasn't masturbating, but she got her intestines all like pulled out of her in the pool. She's alive though, so it's cool. Smile

But the ending of 'Guts' just killed me. I almost peed my pants, seriously. xD
I don't think there's anything wrong with us, it's the other people that have the problem Very Happy

XDDD For sure. Either way, it's better like this. I mean, it's not like I wouldn't freak out if I saw it happening in real life. But reading about it, it was pretty damn funny.
I'm the same way with movies. Everyone kept going on about how this one scene in Irreversible was beyond disturbing. It didn't phase me at all, because I knew it was fake. :x

Eeep, I hate disturbing movies. Even if I know they're fake, they freak me out.
But yeah, I'm that way with reading. Though the whole situation is kinda funny so I'd probably laugh about it afterwards if I had seen it. Shifty

And Boy Meets Boy (I can't think of the author's name, though) and Stargirl (again, can't remember) are both good.

I just finished Monsieur Ibrahim et les fleurs du Coran by Eric-Emmanuel Shmitt.

Great, short, deep book. I don't know if it was translated. There is a movie, though. [French]
