Typical Palahniuk. Some of the stories were ¿creepy¿ and others just bizarre, but all were brutally honest. The more I read Chuck Palahniuk books, the more I begin to consider changing the order of my ¿top-five favorite authors.¿ He is starting to rank up there, with Vonnegut, and Heller, just to name a few. I would recommend this book to anyone that is interested in the bizarre or weird parts of life. This book is complied of a bunch of stories the authors put together that he personally observed over the years as he was reaping in the fame of Fight Club. It is my opinion that Chuck Palahniuk has a great eye for observing the stranger things in life that most of us would probably miss, and he details it in a way that lets the reader re-live the moment as if the reader had been there when it happened. The book I would sum up has entertaining!!

Chuck Palahniuk's 1st attempt at non fiction leaves much to be desired. I am usually blown away by his fictional novels. Lonely, odd characters with sometimes skewed perceptions of the world around them. However, with Stranger than Fiction - which is made up of short stories, a few small glimpses inside his own life, the rest written about people he has met and places he has been - leaves me wanting. I will say that each story is written uniquely, some more captivating than others. To be honest, after reading Confessions in Stone, and Not Chasing Amy, I went online and pulled up additional information on them. Always well written, Chuck has a very appealing voice. I have to tell you, though, i am hungry for more of his fiction.... Stick to what you're best at Chuck!
