“Six hundred dudes. One porn queen. A world record for the ages. A must-have movie for every discerning collector of things erotic.”Cassie Wright, porn priestess, intends to cap her legendary career by breaking the world record for serial fornication. On camera. With six hundred men. Snuff unfolds from the perspectives of Mr. 72, Mr. 137, and Mr. 600, who await their turn on camera in a very crowded green room. This wild, lethally funny, and thoroughly researched novel brings the huge yet underacknowledged presence of pornography in contemporary life into the realm of literary fiction at last. Who else but Chuck Palahniuk would dare do such a thing? Who else could do it so well, so unflinchingly, and with such an incendiary (you might say) climax?

I went through a few stages with this novel. At first I was thinking, 'I think he wrote this just to piss people off, but it's hilarious so I don't care.' Then I was thinking, 'maybe this is his attempt at creating a gross version of As I Lay Dying.' And some other thoughts passed through my head. B...
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...
I did not like this. Really now, how can the man that wrote "Survivor", "Rant" and "Fight Club" go out and write this? And I was looking forward to reading it! Now I just lost time trying to finish it.
