43. Survivor by Chuck Palahniuk

I've read enough of Palahniuk's books, that I am starting to get a sense of his style. Sometimes there is too much style in his writing. It becomes clever and precious. However, he so far has always laid his style on a solid foundation of story. Things happen in interesting ways in Palahniuk's books. This is certainly the case with Survivor, where I enjoyed most of the ride, but at times felt a bit like I was plodding through the repetitive parts to find out what happened next. In the end, it won me over. This book has some really crazy ideas in it and pretty imaginative over-the-top stuff goes down. It's worth a read.
