Just started Choke. I read Diary I while ago and Haunted broke my "cherry"... I could reread Haunted everyday for the rest of my life.

I still want to read Invisible Monsters, Damned and Snuff. I'm kinda afraid to read Lullaby. Anyone read it? Was it about kids dying because if it is, I'll pass.

Any other suggestions by Palahniuk or something similar? I know I didn't list all his books, those are just the ones I currently have been wanting to read.

Chuck has some dogs in his canon. Snuff was terrible. Damned was pretty good.

But if you have not read Fight Club, it is by far his best work.

I know, I know...
I've been hesitant to because I saw the movie and sometimes watching the movie first mars the book.

I didn't love Fight Club, and actually it was his only book that I kept forgetting I was reading and then rediscovering later and trying to read again.

I DID love Survivor! I thought this was by far the better story!

I saw the movie Fight Club prior to reading the book and wasn't disappointed. It's one of the better adaptations I've seen. Obviously, the ending is ruined, but there are many nuances to the story that weren't in the movie.

Choke and Diary are sitting on my bookshelf waiting to be read.
