Glad It Wasn't My First Palahniuk Book,
This review is from: Diary: A Novel (Paperback)
If this had been my first Palahniuk book, I would have missed the awesome Invisible Monsters, Fight Club, Lullaby, and Choke.
Actually had I not just finished Invisible Monsters, I don't know if I could have trudged through this book.
This had many of the same themes as the other Palahniuk books but lacked the punch. Palahniuk books, historically, have felt like getting slapped upside the head with a brick made of my own mores. WHAM! Self-mutalation (Invisible Monsters) WHAM! Self-destruction (Fight Club) WHAM! Wholesale murder (Lullaby). Diary was a love tap.
