I am Jack's stimulated nucleus accumbens

Having never seen the film, I dove in to this excitedly after a few recommendations knowing only that there was a twist somewhere near the end. Admittedly after the first few chapters I was ready to give up, the story was written in a way that made me feel like I was inside the mind of a mad man as the narrator jumps from one topic to another very randomly and it can be quite hard to understand at times, but I persevered in my pursuit for the inevitable twist, wondering how this author ever got his work published. Shortly after I worked everything out for myself and realised I was supposed to be inside the head of a mad man. Chuck Palahniuk is a literary genius, showing so vividly what happens inside the mind of someone who is descending in to a complete madness he himself doesn't know the extent of and then wrapping it up in a strange but intriguing gritty story. I loved it.
