Cassie Wright, porn priestess, intends to cap her legendary career by breaking the world record for serial fornication. On camera. With six hundred men. Snuff unfolds from the perspectives of Mr. 72, Mr. 137, and Mr. 600, who await their turn on camera in a very crowded green room. 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. Who else but Chuck Palahniuk would dare do such a thing? Who else could do it so well, so unflinchingly, and with such an incendiary (you might say) climax?… (mer)

Snuff av Chuck Palahniuk (2008)

    Player One: What Is to Become of Us (CBC Massey Lecture) av Douglas Coupland (freetrader)
    freetrader: Style very similar. Palahniuk more hilaric (not in Snuf, but in Choke e.g.), Coupland more philosophic. While reading it i was sometimes under the impression that i was reading Palahniuk. Are they the same, have they merged into one media event latley ?

After enjoying Fight Club so much I bought 3 Palahniuk titles as a discounted package from Amazon. I kind of knew what Snuff was about although I hadn't read the synopsis. I don't think I would have bought it on its own but I really wanted Invisible Monsters and Haunted and decided to kill 2 (or 3) birds with one stone.

I have to say outright that this was unlike any book I have read previously, in no small part thanks to its setting. A world record gangbang isn't something I every thought someone who write about but it is what it is. I found it not to be overly nasty but sometimes wondered if Palahniuk was trying to be shocking just to be shocking.

In the end I don't really have a great deal to write about this book. I didn't really enjoy it at all and in fact would have probably given it 1 star apart from some of the humour. Palahniuk likes to name the porn movies after famous books but to what end I'm not too sure at all. I disliked all the characters and worked out the name twist within a handful of chapters. I was left very disappointed when I had finished and I just to god that the other books by Palahniuk I bought are better. Reading though some reviews online it would seem that Snuff is a very polarizing book, some love it and others hate it. ( )

THIS BOOK MADE ME SO UNCOMFORTABLE, and not because of the sex. uuuuuuugh, chuck palahniuk, why must you try to be so edgy. ( )

I was a little disappointed in this one. Chuck's stuff is usually so well crafted. Plus, the giant margins and huge font were an obvious attempt to make the book seem longer than it was. I read it in the course of a weekend. I would still recommend it to CP fans, though, just not as highly as his other work. ( )

This a weird book. A little cringe worthy at points, but that's mostly because the nature of the content. The ending was also kind of confusing. Not really a fan of the ageism aspect of it either, but maybe that's the reality of the industry. I wouldn't recommend this one unless you've bored and have a day to kill. ( )

Up until this novel, I had been a faithful Palahniuk reader.
I don't mind a gross out as long as it rewards with a great story and characters to connect to or care about... but that didn't happen for me.

I guess add another author from my 20's to the heap I doubt I'll read again.
