Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. She basically never ebokk, and Chuck misses a chance to actually say something, make some snudf of statement about the kind of woman who would get banged by guys. I guess I should say I never read any of his other books so I don’t have anything to compare this to, mostly because I hated the movie “Fight Club,” yeah I said it, and that’s a shitty way to judge whether sniff not you’re going to read the book but I just had a feeling, you know, I get those on books.
Snuff reads as if Chuck Palahniuk simply wanted to see how many faux-adult-film parodies he could title before the end of the book.
This wild, lethally funny, and thoroughly researched novel brings the huge yet underacknowledged presence of pornography in contemporary life into the realm of literary fiction at last.
When someone asked him who his influences were he couldn’t even quote any good writers. We appreciate your feedback. Okay so you have men waiting to have sex with a porn star and you get to hear from 3 of those men.
This one is about as palatable as purple buttercream veins on a Devils food cake erection. Told from the perspectives of Mr.

I would hate to be in Chuck’s actual head for even a second, considering the kind of stories he can come up with. To ask other readers questions about Snuffplease sign up. This is why such videos are sometimes called “gonzo porn,” why I say that it’s the concept behind the video that is just as important as the actual content; because the actual sex in these “gangbang” videos barely exists, with many of these events for example allowing each “performer” only 60 seconds apiece with the “star” timed with a stopwatch and everythingmost of them barely able to even achieve penetration itself before suddenly being whisked out the door again.

Her comments did, however, give snucf pause as I absolutely enjoyed this book. A whole mess of creepy men answer the casting call to help Cassie make history, and the story is told from the point-of-view of three of those dudes: There’s a reason for that. However, many of the people involved, including the aging starlet herself, think that this last movie just might kill her. The novel is, in fact, a look at a “gangbang,” which for the purposes of this review needs to be explained in a little more detail; because, see, there’s a difference in porn terms between a commercial gangbang something filmed and released all the time in that industry and, palxhniuk, a group of drunk frat boys doing something unspeakable to a passed-out undergrad in the middle of the night in their rec-room.

Snuff by Chuck Palahniuk | : Books
Now are you ready to kill yourself? Di questo “Gang bang” mi aveva colpito la storia, decisamente stramba e non convenzionale, letta sulla quarta di copertina. A Ron Jeremy product placement. I started it Saturday afternoon and finished it last night I would have finished it quicker, but we had a Power Family Field Trip to a soccer game at Soldier Field last evening.
Told from the perspectives of Mr. Or that one of the people making secret plans for the porn star’s death is the porn star herself, obsessed as she is with celebrity suicide and how history will perceive her? And I think he got all his research off the internet. Their stories are full of pathos – some heart rending. And grog forgive me, I read it twice. I mean I get it because of the connection between 2 of them, but why did he include guy ?
And after the mind bending sci-fi of Rant, it seems like a far less ambitious novel. The problem is, it just may kill her. Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. Apr 11, Marc rated it liked it Shelves: But was it perfect?
Snuff by Chuck Palahniuk
Please review your cart. This book was a disaster. Ugh — it makes me shudder just recounting the details to you! I must say the premise really caught me. Cassie Wright is an aging porn star who is trying to set a world record for having sex with dudes in one film, an act that everyone seems to think will kill her. Surely, Snuff is not really a book I’m going to mention in a conversation about books, much less verbally admit to being interested.

Those who have never read a Chuck Palahniuk novel will probably not enjoy the story or the way it is presented while others may be drawn to the subject matter cguck. I suppose that given the subject matter, that’s kind of a double entendre, but snucf it. Cassie thinks this too, but that appears to be the whole point. This is the first time in my life a book has made me question reading.
Pygmy is the deepest depth to which Chuck sank before grabbing the life preserver that was Damnedat least in my opinion. Not at all creative or insightful. I don’t know how he sells books. A Head Full of Ghosts. Oct 10, Henz rated it egook was ok Shelves: A Clockwork Orange Restored Text.
