My third Palahniuk. Perhaps if I hadn't read it directly after Snuff
, it might have rated only four stars for the repetitiveness of style and going a bit overboard on the grotesque. Also, use of the word "dog" for a man's penis. That one didn't quite work for me. But the gorgeous, gorgeous humanity of this book got to me and made me love it for all that it is, despite its flaws.
