This review is from: Tell-All (Hardcover)
I have enjoyed several of Palahniuk's other books, admiring the quality of the writing to be found among the often very robust subject matter.
That made this one all the more disappointing; it felt rather too much like a great idea for a short story which had been stretched to book length, to the point where it became not a little self-indulgent and guilty of the same sort of hubris it is allegedly satirising.
It may well appeal rather more to those with a better knowledge of the milieu; for me, there is one joke in the whole piece, which is taken too far to be funny any more.
