Fight Club for girls,
This review is from: Invisible Monsters (Paperback)
I've read pretty much everything by Chuck, and the fact that a lot of people regard this as his weakest book surprises me. Although I'd have to rate Choke as his finest work, this comes a close second. It's not as radical as some of the other works, but the cut-up style keeps the story's rhythm going, and it has a much higher twist-per-page ratio than most of others. Actually, it has a much higher twist per page count than practically any other book. The themes are a lot more girly than the other books - fashion, bitchiness and wanting to be beautiful etc. It's basically a potboiler remixed into Chuck's unique style.
