I Want You To Die For Me Baby Personal review for Lullaby Let's say that a simple chant can change your life forever. A simple song can really make you devastated. The words behind Chuck Palahniuk’s Lullaby is simply ambitious. Imagine a simple poem can kill many people, simply by reading it to you...

The Basics Carl Streator is an investigative journalist, and he has been tasked with finding a pattern among babies who died of crib death. He does find a pattern. The same book of poems in each house, marked on the same page. It turns out this is a culling song, and anyone who hears it dies. Now ...

This was highly recommended by a friend whose literary tastes I respect and often share. I can see some of the things she probably liked in it.

Another fantastic Palahniuk book, one of my favorites. The theme is all about control, something I always fear of losing. Reading it gave me shivers, thinking of all the times I have been controlled in my life without knowing it and the possibility of it happening on a larger scale is terrifying. Pe...

Chuck Palahnuik cannot seem to write a bad book. The 4th book of his that I've read, I'm continually impressed by each novel. The man really knows how to write an ending..this one does not fall short.
