Quick read. Not one of Palahniuk's best books. An ending strewn with nihilism and self-destruction, like many of his other books, but the writing was sloppy and muddled. Not even artfully sloppy. It was an interesting experience, but not one to which ...more

Absolutely loved it. I wish I had been as precocious as Ludo, learning Greek &c. at a very early age and devouring Homer and others. Such a fun and exhilarating read!

Philip K. Dick
“Never walk over a writer, I said to myself, unless you're positive he can't rise up behind you. If you're going to burn him, make sure he's dead. Because if he's alive, he will talk: talk in written form, on the printed, permanent page.”
Philip K. Dick, Radio Free Albemuth

Stephen King
“The Tower. He would come to the Dark Tower and there he would sing their names; there he would sing their names; there he would sing all their names. The sun stained the east a dusky rose, and at last Roland, no longer the last gunslinger but one of the last three, slept and dreamed his angry dreams through which there ran only that one soothing blue thread: There I will sing all their names!”
Stephen King, The Drawing of the Three

Stephen King
“[Eddie] cried out but his cry was lost in the golden blast of some tremendous horn. It came from the top of the Tower, and seemed to fill the world. As that note of warning held and drew out over the field where he stood, blackness welled from the windows which girdled the Tower. It overspilled them and spread across the sky in flaggy streams which came together and formed a growing blotch of darkness. It did not look like a cloud; it looked like a tumor hanging over the earth. The sky was blotted out. And, he saw, it was not a cloud or a tumor but a shape, some tenebrous, cyclopean shape racing toward the place where he stood.”
Stephen King, The Waste Lands

William S. Burroughs
“The usual mixture of rooms and squares and streets that is the mark of the Land of the Dead. Streets lead into kitchens and bedrooms, so no area is completely private or completely public.”
William S. Burroughs, My Education: A Book of Dreams

Neal Stephenson
“‎...Gold is gold everywhere, fungible and indifferent. But when a disk of gold is stamped by a coiner with certain pompous words and the picture of a King, it takes on added value -- seigneurage. It has that value only in that people believe that it does -- it is a shared phant'sy.”
Neal Stephenson, The Confusion
