Has Chuck Palahniuk written any other books consisting of short stories? I love his raw style of writing. He doesn't hold back. You can tell he writes for himself instead of polishing what he wanted to write to get approval from publishers..

To view it, click here. This is my first experience of this author and i'm not really sure what to make of it. Most of the early stories seem very stripped down, stories about wrestling - where the facts of each bout are told very basically.
Other stories really grip the imagination - the combine demolition derby for instance, or the men who build castles out of chicken wire and plaster or huge lumps of stone. There's a melancholy t Weird. There's a melancholy tone to all of them - even the recounting of how the author dressed as a dalmation with a friend of his and ran around Seattle, just to see the reaction he'd get very nearly getting arrested just for being dressed as a dog.
Random thoughts spring up everywhere. The portraits that he offers of people such as Juliette Lewis and Marilyn Manson are really just verbatim conversations or statements that they make to him. I've already forgotten a lot of this book and I've only just finished it. But the Combine Harvester Demolition Derby - that'll stay in my head for quite a long time to come. I will admit I was a little bored by his demolition car story, and the testicle festival wasn't my cup of tea, but the rest of the chapters?
I was in love, and as a whole I can definitely say I loved the book. Chuck Palahniuk is a genius. He is funny, cohesive, and writes very well: eliminating cloggy words but not going overboard you know- when you I will admit I was a little bored by his demolition car story, and the testicle festival wasn't my cup of tea, but the rest of the chapters?
He is funny, cohesive, and writes very well: eliminating cloggy words but not going overboard you know- when you can tell the aim is artistic fluency, but it really sounds like a stage actor cheesily overacting an already overdramatic scene, like "the wind--it hurts. The pain! My love. Oh life! I love his voice. I love that he made me laugh out loud. Several times. I loved how real his "portraits" of others felt. He talks to you like a normal person, not super loaded and elegant syntax-wise or with diction that's just there to prove you know every four-syllable word in the dictionary.
He is just View 1 comment. The high rating is purely because: This is still one of the good ones from Palahniuk. This is still one of the ones he writes actual sentences and thinks. You can read all the thinking! I truly enjoyed reading about things that I knew to be actual facts, never mind how much I've heard urban legends about fem fight clubs or people choking on food at restaurants for money, I know the stuff Manson said is true coz I've read his book years back. There is a certain kind of honesty in Stranger than Fict The high rating is purely because: This is still one of the good ones from Palahniuk.
There is a certain kind of honesty in Stranger than Fiction that I feel Palahniuk lost at some point. His need to make up things and spiderweb worlds overlaps his ability to tell it how it is. In Stranger than Fiction he still tells it. Some of the essays were so interesting and others made my eyes glaze over in boredom. There is one rather funny one where Palahniuk flew to Los Angeles to meet with movie executives for Fight Club. For some crazy reason, Palahniuk decided to shave his head the night before but he completely messed it up and had small cuts all over his head and a nasty rash.
He essentially looked like he had a terrible skin disease. It was pretty funny, but most of the essays are serious. I listened to this on au Some of the essays were so interesting and others made my eyes glaze over in boredom.
I listened to this on audio and there were two narrators, the author and a professional narrator. A word of advice. If you ever see an audio book by Palahniuk narrated by the author, pick up a paper or ebook copy instead. So it started out all right, but really crashed and burned in my opinion, maybe because I lost patience.
This is a collection of stories, some interesting and indeed, almost stranger than fiction, others average. It is at its best when relating other people's stories, worst when it Palahniuk recording his own musings, which to me seemed as if he's trying too hard, and personal stories, which are not generally strange but seem more the experiences of a person who doesn't want to be well-adjusted, So it started out all right, but really crashed and burned in my opinion, maybe because I lost patience.

This might be a bit of a cheat but I'm going to consider this one done and finished even though I didn't read the entire book. The problem was that I lost the book before I could finish it.
Actually I know exactly where it was last left: in the pocket of my airline seat on a flight to Washington D. I just plain forgot it there. I'm pretty sure it's the first time I've ever done so. Anyway, if I was truly enjoying the book, I would hunt down a new copy or buy the ebook. However, I wasn't really This might be a bit of a cheat but I'm going to consider this one done and finished even though I didn't read the entire book.
However, I wasn't really enjoying it. The book is a collection of life experiences from Palahniuk; each chapter is a different experience. For example, in one chapter he describes what occurs at the Rock Creek Lodge Testicle Festival while in another chapter he portrays unpublished authors and the steps they take for fame. In these experiences, he illustrates people's lives and their pretty crazy actions. Some of the experiences are simply crazy experiences to be taken as indicative of people's lives; others experiences are infused with insights that provide depth and pathos to those lives.
An analysis that makes you analyze your own life and hopefully, at least to me, want to live a more fuller life. So why then, if I was gaining some insight into my life, would I not want to continue?
There, two men fight "as long as they have to. In a mansion once occupied by The Rolling Stones, Marilyn Manson reads his own Tarot cards and talks sweetly to his beautiful actress girlfriend. Across the country, men build their own full-size castles and rocketships that will send them into space. Palahniuk himself experiments with steroids, works on an assembly line by day and as a hospice volunteer by night, and experiences the brutal murder of his father by a white supremacist. With this new direction, Chuck Palahniuk has proven he can do anything.
