I went into this expecting the worst. Chuck Palahniuk used to be one of my favorite authors, but at some point (after Lullaby, maybe) his writing just got too over the top and disgusting to be enjoyable anymore. I was somewhat pleasantly surprised by this book. It was nowhere near as good as some of his best work (Fight Club, Invisible Monsters), but certainly not anywhere near as bad as his worst (Snuff, Pygmy). If he continues to write books like this, I'll keep reading, mainly out of nostalgia, but he has a long way to go before I would put him in the same category I once did.
