3. I Made it through 3 pages..
...of "Diary" before I returned it to the library. Just way too cynical. I really liked "Survivor" and "Choke," and would eventually like to check out "Lullaby". Of course I've seen "fight Club" too many times to count, but never read the book. I like Palahniuk, but I'm really trying to lay off the nihilistic stuff for now. We have enough of it in reality as it is.
