I was seriously looking forward to reading this novel and it did not disappoint one bit. Palahniuk's dense sentences always grab me and I love his structure and his style, always have and likely always will. It gives a great glimpse of the world of Palahniuk without the difficulty of, let's say, his book "Rant" (one of my favorites). A must read if you are a fan of any of his works, but also a great place to start for those who have never read anything of his.

Overdose of weed? Really? He couldn't come up with a better death? Honestly, I couldn't finish the book. I was so irritated by the constant "yeah, I'm 13 but I know what ___ means" dialog. It got old really quick. Also, I felt that it was a huge rip off of the Sandman Slim series. I'd return this one if I bought the physcial book, unfortunately I bought the Nook one.

    This was a disappointment. The first few chapters were mildly entertaining I will admit, but the further I read the more it felt like this is meant for someone
    in high school, or written by one with unimaginative low class humor and repetition. At 246 pages, I'm at 202 and struggling to continue with the language taking a sudden turn from readable,
    to some kind of bad old english. I even put it down and read an entirely new book to take a break, it became more obnoxious the further I read, anxious to get to the end.
    The story went from intro to end with no middle. Suffice it to say I will not be reading the sequel, I can't believe there is one.

    A little too strange, hard to follow even. Sounded interesting because I like si-fy type books but this one was not amazing.

    No thumbs up

    I usually love his books. I thought this one was not even close to being good. It was almost like he wrote it just to write something.

    I'm a fan of Chuck's early work. Fight Club, Survivor etc. Latel

    I'm a fan of Chuck's early work. Fight Club, Survivor etc. Lately though, it just seems like all of his stories have a “gimmick” and the books become more about the “Gimmick” or one idea rather then about story. I didn't feel like hell was this grand place because he kept talking about the same places. The characters were okay, I don't know, sometimes I feel like his latest books are like fast food, they just don't stick with me long. And I want a story I can look back on and enjoy. Don't even get me started on Pygmy.

    As usual, a strange tale. an intriguing story that could have had a better, not so blunted, ending.
