Chuck Palahniuk is at it again."

There was a time when this line in a review would make you smile and send you running to the nearest bookstore to pick up Palahniuk's latest fare. Unfortunately, in recent years it has taken on a whole new meaning and now this dreaded line makes us shake our head and wonder where it all went sideways. It's not that the book is bad per se. It just that he spends the entire book trying to sound like, well, Chuck Palahniuk instead of being Chuck Palahniuk. We all know all too well that when he is good, he is very, very good. But when he's bad...he's Damned.
