Read in April, 2009

Murder, rape, castration, sex, masturbation, mutilation, and deception are just a few parts of this truly twisted novel. This is the third book I have read by Chuck Palahniuk and by far the best and most disturbing at the same time.

The story follows a group of would be authors, poets, and screen writers who agree to a three-month retreat away from the world in which they can create their masterpieces. Once locked away in a huge and inescapable old theater, the folks from the retreat find it difficult to work in the environment and eventually succumb to demented variations of cabin fever while giving away glimpses of their past and waiting for the three months to end.

Carrie Good review, Ron! I'm going to have to reread Haunted since I have forgotten major chunks of the plot. Damn you, swiss cheese brain!
