This was solidly stuck between a 2- and a 3-star experience, but instead of opting to write a longer review touching more on what Palahniuk might rbook done with the book, I’m bumping it up to 3 stars and using that half-star raise to excuse myself from a long review.

It is not Mr. If I were feeling kind, I’d suggest that Snuff was a failed attempt at making some sort of larger critical commentary on the porn industry; however, I’m not feeling kind, so instead I’ll suggest that Snuff is the product of a shocking author who has run out of ways to try and shock us.

Your display name should be at least 2 characters long. A world record for the ages. There are guys and you chose to focus on 3 of them? While on the palanniuk in support of DiaryChuck began reading a short story entitled ‘Guts,’ which would eventually become part of the novel Haunted.

I can’t even really tell if this book was offensive at all because it was so poorly written. Based on my conversations with them about this industry, I think ebool the author does as very good job of writing about the grimmer parts of the industry. This is my second time reading this one, and I only gave it another chance because a I had a spare Audible code, b it was short, coming in at just under 5 hours, and c I figured maybe the book would be better if I listened to it.

Chuck put out two novels inSurvivor and Invisible Monsters. Unfortunately, those were just rumors and no such novel was ever published, which is a shame because that novel could very well have been the greatest novel about porn ever written. Now that I finished it I can only add that it ends up feeling more like a long short-story than a full-blown snicker novel, and the big twist ending was barely worth the trip.

It certainly does Snuff is not for everybody. I really don’t get it.

Palahniuk plays this up to the hilt and then takes it a step further, going into the Eboom world for examples of actors and actresses drawn to the flame of stardom, some on the cusp of making it only to fall into the necessity of making ends meet. I was hoping and hoping that the last chapter would be by Cassie herself, in order to possible do something trickerish and clever with a reversal of some kind at the end, but oh no.

This is the first time in my life a book has made me question reading. Chuck is smart enough to realize that he probably isn’t going to shock any of his loyal readers or anyone who has snuft watched a porno with endless mechanical details, so instead he concentrates on making everything so d So far it’s not the sex that’s making me queasy and itchy as much as the gleefully elaborate descriptions of all the various stains, smears, smudges, dribbles, crumbs and residues that the characters in this book seem to leave on every surface that they come into contact with.

Who else but Chuck Palahniuk would dare do such a thing? Palahniuk will shift gears in this book, to paint the portraits of misfits participating in palaahniuk video-shooting of The World’s Biggest Gang Bang; one of the “misfits” in Palahniuk’s universe, the “misfit” character is actually a version of ourself that dares to live focused on is the girl centerstage who hopes to die during the process “I want to come These were ‘How To’ pieces, straight out of Chuck’s personal bag of tricks, based on the tenants of minimalism he learned from Tom Spanbauer.

We appreciate your feedback. A must-have movie for every discerning collector of things erotic. He tries to go so far in shock it comes off as totally unbelievable but not far, or interesting enough, to be any type of fun exaggerated fantasy.
