    Cassie Wright, porn priestess, intends to cap her legendary career by breaking the world record for serial fornication. On camera. With 600 men. Snuff unfolds from the perspectives of Mr. 72, Mr. 137, and Mr. 600, who await their turn on camera in a very crowded green room. This wild, lethally funny, and thoroughly researched novel brings the huge yet underacknowledged presence of pornography in contemporary life into the realm of literary fiction at last. Who else but Chuck Palahniuk would dare do such a thing? Who else could do it so well, so unflinchingly, and with such an incendiary (you might say) climax?

    Dean says: "It is worth the read."
    "Not my favorite Palahniuk book, but not a bad read"
    Overall

    The story is not bad. I would recommend "Survivor" over this book. This is very similar to Palahniuk's "Choke," so if you like that book, you will be satisfied.

    The Mongol army led by Genghis Khan subjugated more lands and people in 25 years than the Romans did in 400. In nearly every country the Mongols conquered, they brought an unprecedented rise in cultural communication, expanded trade, and a blossoming of civilization.

    Peter says: "Brilliant, insightful, intriguing."
    "Very interesting with a great narrator."
    Overall

    The material is great, and enhanced by the narration. I had no idea Genghis Khan was this interesting!

    "While I am indeed of lowly rank, I am also a young woman who allowed herself to sample life's greatest pleasures in the hands of these titled men. My tales overflow in this journal, penning my journey to becoming a woman of power of the most base, yet stimulating, breed."

    Holly says: "Amazing!"
    "Boring."
    Overall

    I didn't make it through the first hour of this book. It was very dull and the narration is over-the-top.

  • The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest: The Millennium Trilogy, Book 3

    Lisbeth Salander—the heart of Larsson’s two previous novels—lies in critical condition, a bullet wound to her head, in the intensive care unit of a Swedish city hospital. She’s fighting for her life in more ways than one: if and when she recovers, she’ll be taken back to Stockholm to stand trial for three murders. With the help of her friend, journalist Mikael Blomkvist, she will not only have to prove her innocence, but also identify and denounce those in authority.

    B.J. says: "Perfect."
    "Great ending to the trilogy."
    Overall

    If you're a fan of the first two books, this one will leave you quite satisfied.
