Awesome, dude. Glad my bookshelf inspired. I suppose that is what it is really there for. That, and, keeping me in check. I find I read more and faster partly to keep my cred up on this site. You've got some great stuff ahead of you. Keep me posted.
Thanks for getting back to me about, "let the right one in" Seems like you and I share some of the same tastes- far out. I'll keep on the look out for a copy on half.com. I also hear it has a fantastic movie adaptation. I'll try and hold of my netflix impulses until the book gets read.
I moved one year ago and let people borrow tons of stuff so that I would have less to move. I never got my Palahniuk back so I did not get to do the reading. I actually forgot that it had been lent until now. I should get Rant and Haunted back so I can red through them before Pygmy comes out in paperback.
I did read Survivor, although I have to say it was one of my least favorites :\ I really liked Invisible Monsters as well as Choke and of course Fight Club. (And I love Marla...) I haven't read much of his newer stuff, I more or less stopped after Diary because I really disliked it. And I've been tearing through a lot of different authors, like Terry Pratchett and Haruki Murakami.
What did you think of American Psycho ?
Good to hear from you again. I have not yet acquired Rant, but I do plan to read it. Good to know it is not strict narrative before jumping into it. I have not read any Easton Ellis, but I have always been curious. It sounds like I should probably start with American Psycho. I too love that movie. I have heard that some of the books crossover (like Rules of Attraction has one or tow of the characters from American Psycho). I like that sort of world building in an author's work.
Took awhile, but I finished Invisible Monsters, and I also found it hilarious especially when her parents went off about anything related to their son's homosexuality.
Let me know what you think of Brett Easton Ellis' writing style once you have read him. I love the movies based on his books, but I have never read him.
You are correct about which three Palahniuks I have read (and I read A Walk In Portland). I was trying to read the novels in publication order. I plan to jump back in soon with Invisible Monsters and now you have given me hope that it will be better than Choke.
