Chuck Palahniuk's 'Snuff'

Just finished Chuck Palahniuk's 'Snuff.'
Though not as intricate, funny or thought provoking as my fav of his books ('Invisible Monsters' and 'Choke'), 'Snuff' is an enjoyable, quick read. Punctuated with Palahniuk's trademark tidbits of trivia (this time about the bizzare beauty secrets of the stars and stories about actors injuring themselves while shooting films) and his sharp writing style, 'Snuff' moves at a brisk pace. Unfortunately I felt like I was always ahead of the story, calling the plot twists and surprises before they were revealed- at least up until a major one towards the end.
Overall, the book is fun but doesn't quite resonate with the same emotional intensity as some of his previous work.

The End
