Devin I can totally see where you're at on a lot of what you said. Though I don't know if it will give a different perspective or not, but Chuck Palahniuk has said on different occasions that almost every story in the book is based off of true stories. Personally, I think even if some things in the book might not be that likely to happen, it's a good exercise through the human psyche and how some people truly go to extremes and do bizarre things. I can see some people doing a lot of the things in the book, I mean just look at the news, there are always outlandish stories happening in reality. But that's just me and I respect everyone's take on the book. :)

Jeffrey That makes it even sadder, because the stories are mostly worth reading. The connective parts are the worst. So over the top ridiculous that they don't fit with the interesting ideas in the stories. The fact that the stories are based on true events makes me want to give even less credit to Chuck as a writer.
