Only if I was mad at them.
Extremely well written, poetic even; but requires a strong stomach. Perverted and perverse. Read at your own risk...
Nothing. He is just not my type.
No, nor will I, now that I know what kinda of writer he is. If he eve changes geners, maybe.
Shudder. Only at Halloween.
I stumbled into this book through careless reviewing on my part. I kept reading because he is so good; hoping for a return to rationality and a thoughtful resolution. But, of course that was not what he had in mind. Well, fool me once. . .
I was very disappointed in this book. The Narrator, Richard Poe spoke so monotonously through the entire book that I would have slept through it even if the story line had been well written. This book read like someone's first novel. Will not soon read another by Chuck Palaniuk.
He was repetitive in his language use and certainly could have enlarged on his story.
He could have not written it at all.
Save your money.
the author has such a great mind for the twisted --love this. the narrator set the mood perfectly. this was my first venture into this author's work--and can't wait to make my way through the rest.
If your a Chuck Palahniuk fan and enjoy fantasy, you'll get the best of both worlds when your read Lullaby. As usual the content is disturbing, yet hilarious.
I felt this book's story had so much potential but was written in a very disjointed manner. This would have been a great deal better had it not been written in present tense.
The only thing good about this book was the sale price. I would have been upset if I'd paid full price for such a collection of drivel. The author makes up with synonyms what he lacks in plot or character development. It's like listening to someone read a Thesaurus, with a bit of gratuitous sex and violence thrown in when the diarrheal flow of words begins to dry up.
I kept hoping it would get better..... or at least not get any worse. I was wrong.
This was the most disappointing book I have read in a very long time. I feel completely cheated. After Fight Club I really thought I was in for a great read. In a word: not. Please don't waste your time. I feel so strongly about this book that it is the first I have even written a review, but I felt I had to get the word out: STAY AWAY!
