    One thought on “Snuff”

    1. before readingI'm presuming that this will be enough of a departure from Against the Day that it will help me remember how to read regular books. (Also noted: the print is really big. Odd.)after readingOk I'm really sorry to say this, but this book blew. I suppose that given the subject matter, that's kind of a double entendre, but fuck it. Actually, you know what? That's about as hard as it seems Palahniuk tried to make this book any good. It was like some college student aping Palahniuk for a [...]

    2. Find all of my reviews at: 52bookminimum/“Six hundred dudes. One porn queen. A world record for the ages. A must-have movie for every discerning collector of things erotic. Didn’t one of us on purpose set out to make a snuff movie.”You’re probably reading a Chuck Palahniuk sex story.The premise of Snuff is simple enough – a world record is about to broken. This is the story of a day in the life of 600 dudes, including an aging porn star . . . a boy with a secret . . . and a bunch of ot [...]

    3. (Today's review is much longer than ' word-count limit; find the entire essay at the Chicago Center for Literature and Photography [cclapcenter]. I am the original author of this essay, as well as the owner of CCLaP; it is not being reprinted here illegally.)As I'm sure a certain amount of CCLaP's readers are already aware, there's a new type of pornography that's become more and more popular within the last half-decade now, a type that I'm positive will eventually say more about the Bush Era to [...]

    4. I'm not gonna beat around the bush. Snuff is as enjoyable as a wet fart in a hot shower. This is also the book that started Palahniuk's dive into mediocrity and self parody. Pygmy is the deepest depth to which Chuck sank before grabbing the life preserver that was Damned, at least in my opinion. I know people still think he hasn't written a good book since Diary, but I thought his romp in Hell was big fun.This is my second time reading this one, and I only gave it another chance because a) I had [...]

    5. March 2013Tired and unimaginative and uninspired and dulljust like everything else Chucky P. has written. And grog forgive me, I read it twice.There's a reason for that. Ok, two. One is, I keep reading good books, and all those four- and five-star reads have me worried that something might be wrong, that my judgement is off, so I decided to read something bad to compensate. Nope, nothing wrong here. This book is bad and all the others I read so far this year were pretty good. Nothing to worry ab [...]

    6. I absolutely enjoyed this book. I just came off of reading "Rant" with my Composition 2 students, and I had one student object (quietly, coming to me during office hours to do so) to reading it because it goes against everything she believes in (which is following the word of God and ridding the world of moral filth. Her words, not mine). So of course I respected her position, gave her a new assignment, and kept on trucking with the rest of the class. Her comments did, however, give me pause as [...]

    7. I feel icky.Chuck Palahniuk's take on the porn industry blows wades of sex euphemisms all over the reader like moneyshots at a gangbang. The language is as base as the subject matter. The characters have all the nuance of a cookie cutter. The plot, slightly more complicated than the old school "I've come to fix the pool" porn of yesteryear, is nonetheless as formulaic as a whodunit mystery. And yes, all this works in the author's favor. He is, after all, writing about porn.Is this titillation pu [...]

    8. I refuse to spend more time reviewing this book than Palahniuk spent writing it (which couldn't have been very much), so I'll be brief. Snuff takes place entirely in the green room of a porno movie. Cassie Wright is an aging porn star who is trying to set a world record for having sex with 600 dudes in one film, an act that everyone seems to think will kill her. Cassie thinks this too, but that appears to be the whole point. She's hoping that if she dies trying to break the record, then the film [...]

    9. This was too filthy, even by my standards. But somehow, the copy I have was signed by Chuck Palahniuk so it is a book I will never get rid of.

    10. Snuff is not for everybody. Those who have never read a Chuck Palahniuk novel will probably not enjoy the story or the way it is presented while others may be drawn to the subject matter alone. "Six hundred dudes. One porn queen. A world record for the ages." Come on, it's about porn! Palahniuk fans will certainly enjoy this short tirade that seems more like a novella than an actual novel. Snuff is Chuck's shortest novel to date. Fact. Every single letter is in brown ink! Fact. It certainly does [...]

    11. This is the second worst book I have ever read. I don't know if I can say I've even read it because I just cannot bring myself to finish it. This guy has no concept on how to write a good sentence. Not one good sentence. Pick a page, then put your finger on a word. It will all be stupid and bad. A friend of mine paid $30 to take me to hear him speak, and this is how I wound up with a signed copy of this book. Everybody in his cult following crowd was young and ultra hip, and obviously has really [...]

    12. I don't believe I've ever read (or heard of) any good fiction written about the porn industry. Drug addiction and alcoholism have been written about ad nauseum, but the porn industry -- a bizarre world in which so many of its participants (from the actors to the viewers) have hit a rock bottom similar to that of the most addicted alcoholic or dope fiend -- seems to be a tougher nut to crack, if you will. Maybe it has to do with the old "write what you know" philosophy. Any writer can drink himse [...]

    13. So far it's not the sex that's making me queasy and itchy as much as the gleefully elaborate descriptions of all the various stains, smears, smudges, dribbles, crumbs and residues that the characters in this book seem to leave on every surface that they come into contact with. Chuck is smart enough to realize that he probably isn't going to shock any of his loyal readers (or anyone who has ever watched a porno) with endless mechanical details, so instead he concentrates on making everything so d [...]

    14. Il troppo stroppiaChuck Palahniuk è uno scrittore che riesce sempre, in qualche modo, a stupire. Di questo "Gang bang" mi aveva colpito la storia, decisamente stramba e non convenzionale, letta sulla quarta di copertina.Una porn-star, alla fine della sua "carriera", decide di battere il record di "gang bang" (in italiano ammucchiata), ossia di far sesso davanti alle telecamere con 600 (!!) uomini in una sola giornata. A tutto questo esercito di uomini, in attesa in uno spogliatoio puzzolente e [...]

    15. As a Chuck Palahniuk fan, I was disappointed. It's got all the usual elements of a Chuck P. novel. Dark humor, gross material, oddball characters, and plenty of plot twists, but it's a let down after the superior Haunted and Rant.It's very short. In fact, a shorter version might have made a great story in Haunted. And after the mind bending sci-fi of Rant, it seems like a far less ambitious novel. It's not bad, but it reads like something that Palahniuk did as a side project while working on som [...]

    16. This book was a disaster. I don't understand why this book exists at all. I don't know why it was published, why anyone thought it would be a good idea, and why I bothered to read it.This is the first time in my life a book has made me question reading. It made me question why we read and why people write. If this is the kind of stuff being published, why do I read. I get nothing from this. No benefit and no education. I don't know why reading and writing has become such a big industry when this [...]

    17. 3.5/5Chuck nu m-a dezamăgit. Povestea asta a fost altceva, a avut un plot frumos și un final pe măsură. Cel puțin în Snuff, Chuck nu s-a complicat cu descrieri inutile iar totul a fost scurt și la obiect, după cum spune și descrierea cărții. Avem parte de patru perspective diferite: Sheila și numele 72, 137 și 600. Aceste numere reprezintă niște bărbați veniți pentru filmarea celui mai legendar film porno din istorie, în care Cassie Wright face sex cu 600 de bărbați într-o [...]

    18. Okay, I can't jump on the Snuff hate train. This wasn't the best book, but it's really not a bad offering at all.Basic premise - an aging porn star goes for one last hurrah - a 600 man gang bang. However, many of the people involved, including the aging starlet herself, think that this last movie just might kill her.The author let's us into the thoughts of the men standing in line for the movie and into the thoughts of one of the production people. These are very damaged people - one might say e [...]

    19. Five stars, because it gives you everything you'd want in a Palahniuk book. No child is left behind. Think of this book as the Oedipus myth, filtered through the worldview of Philip Larkin and the grossout slapstick of Jackass.---What the hell is with the brown ink?! Were they out ofout of lemon juice?! I'm sorry, but this is an annoyance on par with the invisotext (click and roll cursor to highlight the spoilers!) that was all the rage in your livejournal blog circa 2002. The book is still kind [...]

    20. Awww too bad, I really loved Fight club and I was really looking forward to find some grit in this novel, sadly all I’ve read were a parody of porn titles and porn slangs that made me uncomfortable but I must say that it’s a bold move for Chuck Palahniuk to write a novel about Porn. “Six hundred dudes. One porn queen. A world record for the ages. A must-have movie for every discerning collector of things erotic.” Yes that’s right!!! I must say the premise really caught me. To write abo [...]

    21. A ver, para empezar, ¿Por qué leo yo a Palahniuk? Vamos, quitemos al famoso "Club de la Pelea", que en los escritores también se hacen estigmas.Yo no leo a Chuck pensando que voy a descubrir el sentido de la vida, ni que voy a tener frente a mí un montón de páginas con frases complicadas, lecciones y aprendizajes que me harán explotar la cabeza por su sabiduría. Tampoco vengo a encontrar historias complejas, tramas hiper desarrolladas y plot twist épicos.No, yo leo a Chuck porque el muy [...]

    22. This one is about as palatable as purple buttercream veins on a Devils food cake erection.Everybody loves Cassie. Who wouldn’t love the star of movie mega hits such as Good Will Humping and Emergency Room Backdoor Dog Pile? Plus, 600 dudes later, she is about to make a world record for the ages. The problem is, it just may kill her. That’s the plan anyway.First off, I like Palahniuk…usually. This was definitely not my favorite of his, but a friend of mine gave me the audio book so I though [...]

    24. I think everyone knows what 'snuff' means, right?It is not Mr. P's best book but it's still mightily entertaining and it gives us a better understanding on the creation and history of porn, it's a fun read. I own this book and I wish to re-read it ASAP.a review which lists the funny *fake* titles of porn. Wow, 'The Postman Always Cums Twice'? Really? /review/show

    25. Mé úplně první setkání s Palahniukem (tedy krom zfilmovaného Klubu rváčů). A vlastně ani sama nevím, co k tomu říct. Bylo to divoký, byla to jízda. Ale zas ne taková, jakou bychom v knize o pornu čekali.Příběh se odehrává jen na jednom místě a to na "place", kde se pornohvězda Cassie Wrightová snaží překonat rekord v počtu souloží, který před ní vytvořila Annabel Chong. A jelikož Cassie není žádná troškařka, má v plánu obsloužit rovných 600 mužů. [...]

    26. WHAT THE FUCK DID I JUST READ?*** This book is demented. I mean I would hate to be in Chuck's actual head for even a second, considering the kind of stories he can come up with. I'm not going to be a hypocrite, the book kept me turning the pages, I was as interested as I was shocked that I'm actually reading such a book. Surely, Snuff is not really a book I'm going to mention in a conversation about books, much less verbally admit to being interested. I was pretty sure what happened with Mr. 72 [...]

    27. La primera vez que leí un libro de Palahniuk me quedé con la impresión de que su discurso era un poco impostado, que buscaba escandalizar al lector abordando temáticas controvertidas o escatológicas, como un niño grita: "caca, culo, pedo, pis" y luego mira a su alrededor a ver si la gente reacciona. Snuff me ha hecho cambiar de opinión. Palahniuk escoge hablar de los temas que otros ignoran por pudor. En Snuff hace un retrato muy interesante de la industria del porno. Lo que más me gust [...]
