Wow! What a book! Another intelligent and twisted story from Palahniuk that I literally couldn't put down. The beginning was slightly confusing since it starts at the end of the story, but it didn't take me long to figure it out and really get into it despite the timeline constantly jumping around. I don't think I fully understood or really liked the book until the last 50 pages since so much of the good stuff is at the end. I can see why Palahniuk's writing isn't for everyone, and why some people might find this book crude, but I loved it. Several chapters were so powerful that I feel like I could take them out of the book and just read them as a stand alone story. My one dislike - if you're going to write something that takes place in Seattle make sure you do your research better first, as there was several specific details that aren't true at all. (IE, the space needle observation deck is not open until midnight, nor is there a store in the top part, or a safety set in case you fall... and if you're coming from the north you wouldn't be passing any "warehouses" to get there.)
