I think Choke is another of the list that has subsequently dropped off, and I can understand why. It's just a none book as far as I can tell. The quote to sell this novel, found alone on the front cover, is "Choke is Fight Club for sex addicts," which somehow manages to sum up this novel for me despite clearly missing most of the point of it. But whereas Fight Club was pretty ingenious, with a good twist, and plenty of dark comedy, Choke swerves towards the gross out end of the comedy spectrum all too regularly, and has none of the flair or interest of its predecessor. It's a very normal modern novel, and I would expect more from Palahniuk.
