Lullaby

Pages

I just finished my third read-through of Lullaby, and there's a lot bouncing around in my head.

The first time I read it, last year or whenever, the story seemed incredibly vast, the symbolism almost too gigantic for me to wrap my head around. It blew my mind. I loved it. The second time I read it, not long after, I had full knowledge of how the story would end, where the plot would go, and it still held up to my scrutiny. I proclaimed it one of my favorite Palahniuk books.

As always, Chuck is masterful with his metaphors. And I don't just mean his awesome minimalist comparisons, his description. I mean the gigantic metaphors that he puts into his stories. How every scene fulfills the themes he presents to us.
On my latest re-read of Lullaby, I started to notice more and more the real meaning behind what, on first read, just seemed like outrageous story.
