Book review: Snuff by Chuck Palaniuk


the cover of the book

If this was any less erotic, grandparents would be involved. (The fact that the author failed to include any was most likely an accident.)

Book review: Diary by Chuck Palahniuk



I admit I started reading Diary based exclusively on the fact that it was written by Chuck Palahniuk, having previously read and enjoyed Fight Club some years ago. I had no idea of the story. But I’ll tell you something... I was hooked from the first page.
