    Haunted by Chuck Palahniuk is a novel made up of stories: 23 of them, to be precise. Twenty-three of the most horrifying, hilarious, mind-blowing, stomach-churning tales you'll ever encounter, sometimes all at once. They are told by people who have answered an ad headlined "Writers' Retreat: Abandon Your Life for Three Months", and who are led to believe that here they will leave behind all the distractions of "real life" that are keeping them from creating the masterpiece that is in them.

    Dominique says: "True Horror -- Not for the faint of heart, stomach"
    "Lousy"

    What was most disappointing about Chuck Palahniuk’s story?

    I really loved Fight Club so I figured I would try another Palahniuk book. I have listened/seen some gross/nasty things in my life but this takes the cake. If his goal is to tell really disgusting stories that have little or no point, then I guess he "succeeded". The overarching story, at least to me, doesn't make much sense, and the stories-within-the-story are.....weird/pointless/gross/etc. I made it half-way through it and gave up.
