Description

Cassie Wright, porn priestess, intends to cap her legendary career by breaking the world record for serial fornication. On camera. With six hundred men. Snuff unfolds from the perspectives of Mr. 72, Mr. 137, and Mr. 600, who await their turn on camera in a very crowded green room. This wild, lethally funny, and thoroughly researched novel brings the huge yet underacknowledged presence of pornography in contemporary life into the realm of literary fiction at last. Who else but Chuck Palahniuk would dare do such a thing? Who else could do it so well, so unflinchingly, and with such an incendiary (you might say) climax?

  • (3/5)
    Interesting characters with a closed room setting like no other. Classic Palahniuk.
  • (3/5)
    Disgusting, dirty, fun.
  • (4/5)
    Equipped with every masturbation euphemism and the creative limitations imposed by just Chuck's grasp on the English language. This is a love story, it's a grudge, and self destructive story, and an influencial "leaving of age" story in first person from multiple participants, all in the midst of working through each of their personal struggle; each "pud puller" "hose honker" "wand waver" "dong dangler" and "pussy pounder"awaiting a turn and mentally placing judgement on every other "handy helper" "pipe Petter" "horse handler" and "spooge splasher".
    The climax was... unexpected...I liked it.
  • (5/5)
    Graphic, intense, and interesting. Morbid but comedic, dark humor. ?
  • (5/5)
    One of the funniest books I've ever listened to. The numerous porn parody names alone would be worth the price of admission.
  • (5/5)
    This short read is graphic and definitely not safe for work, but the clever writing and signature twist ending is well delivered and enjoyable. I laughed out loud more than once :)
