I love books, I never thought I'd enjoy audible so much. There a few that didn't do it for me, when the narrator is good, it make it real!
amazing stories and novel, but the audio seemed really bass heavy and muffled. difficult to hear at times. but I still loved it
Be prepared when you read this; Palahniuk writes about every demented nightmare you could possibly think of and more. The style of writing challenges reality, keeping you guessing and shocked. It all just felt like a really screwed up bad dream. Hard to listen at times as it may be, tucked in between the body gore, murder and political cringe, there lies brilliance. Irony and twisted endings, as well as imagery that constantly questions lucidity. Again, don't read this if you have a weak stomach. But if you can handle the darkest story around, give it a try.
The first hour was great, shock horror left me cringing from the boy in the pool. After that is was a jumble of mediocre horror stories trying to tie it together with a bunch of writers locked in a house.
I wish it was possible to UNhear this book. I kept waiting for the redeeming turn, the interesting twist, SOMETHING to make it worth the hours I spent listening... It never came.
It was impossible to find where I was because the chapters in the book are not marked in this audiobook. very dissapointed
Disgusting without being the least bit entertaining. Can't care about any of the characters. Can't care about the story. Self indulgent and worst of all boring. Can't understand why anyone would consider this s horror novel. Nothing scares here. More like a 14 year old writing gross out stories
But I feel I should at least try. It's difficult to put into words exactly how brilliant this book is on so many levels, and even more difficult to recommend to the masses. That being said, if you're are here to be enlightened, not just entertained...if you aren't easily offended by every single taboo that can be conjured and brought to light through the power of your own imagination, PLEASE BUY THIS BOOK! And if you do, and you won't or can't appreciate one of the greatest satirists since Mark Twain, PLEASE, just leave...don't post a negative review and keep others from the thrill of this amazing ride. Thank you, and ENJOY!
I would change 2 things. First, make the overarching story actually actually relevant to the short stories. Second,
There are several stories about one of the character's daughter. I think they should have been combined into one section instead of spread out.
He did very well.
I like the over arching story mixed with short stories. Would be an interest concept to try.
Great concept, but bad execution.
