After a good, long run, we have decided to close our forums in an effort to refocus attention to other sections of the site. Fortunately for you all, we're living in a time where discussion of a favorite topic now has a lot of homes. So we encourage you all to bring your ravenous love for discussion to Chuck's official Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram. And, as always, you can still post comments on all News updates. Thank you for your loyalty and passion over the years. These changes will happen June 1.

Don't get me wrong, I'm a big Chuck P. fan. I respect the guy, no other author comes close as far as I'm concerned.

Now, I'm a bit confused with Fugitives and Refugees. I'm in Louisiana and I couldn't care less about the places to go in Portland. Recipes? Gardens? I don't think any of this belongs in a Chuck P. book.

I'm afraid that anyone mildly interested in Chuck may be completely turned off after reading this book. Imagine someone who just read Choke or Survivor last month and heard about this new book coming out. It would be a letdown, I think.

I certainly like the idea of getting into Chuck's head, but this book was just a big advertisement for the city of Portland and a few stories from Chuck.
