Chuck Palahniuk creates an incredibly realistic and twisted story. However, it is a bit overdone and by the end the reader may become a little immune to the extraordinary and by doing so, causes some of the twists and turns to become not necessarily predictable but perhaps not shocking. On the upside, Palahniuk did an amazing job at making a twisted original plot seem believable.Every character is fully developed and has a unique back story that out does the other one, creating a vicious cycle of complicated brilliance.In the style of Palahniuk this novel hits the mark. I would not recommend to everybody, but if you're a fan then check it out. Chuck Palahniuk may appeal to a more specific audience and this book fits within that scope.
