Default Chuck Palahniuk

It is probably apparent that I am completely on Chuck P's nuts and have enjoyed pretty much everything he has ever written, so I'm surprised I couldn't find a thread on him. ):
Quite an amazing "Shock" writer.

Anyway, my favorite novel has to be Choke. It's more linear than most of his work, which, for me at least, makes it alot less confusing.

Snuff comes out this May, cant wait.

I've read Choke, Fight Club and Survivor... I liked them all, he's a pretty good writer.

Choke movie comes out this August.. should be interesting.

I enjoy him, sometimes I find he gets too repetitive like in Diary for instance, but overall he's good. Choke is probably my favorite book of his.

A good writer but I much prefer Bret Easton Ellis and Irvine Welsh to tap into modern society.

i can't wait for snuff. i love the whole culture of porn, and reading cp's take on it is going to be awesome.

i've read fight club, survivor, lullaby, diary, choke, and half of haunted. the first three being the only one's i liked. well, choke was alright too, but it was mostly dull up until the ending. haven't read any of his others.

At first I thought that Fight Club and Survivor were my two favorites, but then I read RANT. Brilliant, it takes the "Documentary" feel of World War Z but applies it to CP's unique way of creating a world and character.

My favorite by Palahniuk is Haunted, with Choke coming in quite close to that. I love his writing. He's insane. It's fantastic.
