Way better than Pygmy! LOL ( )
  DKnight0918 | Dec 23, 2023 |
I'll probably catch shit from Chuck fans, but this book doesn't crack my top 5 of Chuck books, to be honest, it barely cracks my top 10, if it does at all, and this is the 12th Chuck book I read. I got a little confused following the characters, since every chapter throws out hundreds of bolded names, Lillian Hellman probably gave me the most trouble, since she seemed to do everything and be everywhere, but I straightened that out by the end of the book, and it is nowhere near my biggest complaint. This book doesn't have Chuck's usual (how do you describe it?) "edge", and when it does, it feels very forced. But probably the biggest gripe I have about this book is its predictability. About halfway through the book it is pretty easy to figure out what our narrator is doing, and even if you didn't she basically spells it out for you when she is sitting in the theatre with Terrence Terry. He asks her what she is writing and she obviously lies to him, and you'd have to be oblivious to miss the giveaway of the big twist ending.
Not to mention half of the "bold-faced words" (you know what I mean if you are reading the book) are references that I didn't recognize, and I'm two months shy of my 30th birthday. I didn't know if everyone was a real person, or if some were fictional and some real.
Eh, it doesn't matter anyway. Chuck can do better and he has in the past, hopefully he will again. I'll still look forward to Damned, I just hope it's more Pygmy than Tell-All. ( )

Hazie Coogan lleva años al servicio de la actriz Katherine Kenton. Durante décadas, ha velado paraque los deseos desorbitados de la estrella, veterana de múltiples matrimonios, retornos profesionales y operaciones de cirugía estética, se hicieran realidad. La repentina aparición de un caballero con el aparatoso nombre de Webster Carlton Westward III, que se abre camino hasta el corazón de la actriz, despierta la desconfianza de Hazie. Sus sospechas se confirman cuando encuentra unas memorias de Webster sobre su vida con Katherine, en la que la actriz muere de manera "accidental". Si Westward mata a Katherine y consigue hacer que parezca un accidente, podrá vender sus memorias y hacerse rico. ¿Será capaz Hazie de desbaratar sus planes? ¿O algo todavía más horrible está a punto de ocurrir?

This one was a disappointment to me. It didn't flow well, and the ending didn't surprise me at all, which is something I could usually bet on when it comes to Palahniuk. Tell-All just fell very, very flat. ( )

This was my first Chuck book. It was interesting. I am a huge fan of movie stars from the 40s and 50s era and thought it would be a quick interesting read. I was right. It is written like a movie which was cool but a little difficult to really get into at times. The boldface name dropping got a little old after a while. The ended for me, totally came out of nowhere which I loved, I almost gave it another star just for that, but decided against it. It wasn't anything special, but it was definitely interesting. ( )

The curse of celebrity, hardly a unique theme, has always provided a rich vein for satire. There are mild hints through the pages at what Tell-All could have been, an exposé of starwatchers who crave depictions of the sordid lives of celebrities, seeking "comfort and licence in their own tawdry, disordered lives."

But the results are a misshapen mess of half-baked parody and puddle-shallow inspiration.
 
I am Chuck Palahniuk's new novel, and you bought me without even reading the synopsis on the dust jacket. I am exactly like Chuck Palahniuk's other novels—short, punchy sentences; grotesque trivia; poetry-slam-style repetition throughout. I am also peppered with difficult emotional truths, because market testing has proved that my audience demographic enjoys those. Here's one: Every Chuck Palahniuk novel is just like any other Chuck Palahniuk novel, except for each new one is slightly worse than the last. I am the worst one yet. But I will not be his worst novel for very long. He keeps churning us out every year, so next year's book, which will be worse than me, is probably nearing completion.

Act one, scene one opens with Lillian Hellman clawing her way, stumbling and scrambling, through the thorny night-time underbrush of some German schwarzwald, a Jewish baby clamped to each of her tits, another brood of infants clinging to her back.
