Guts Reactions (Not about fainting)

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.

I was talking to a female friend of mine about Fight Club (the movie, she hadn't seen it, but was interested) and the topic turned to one about Chuck, and his work. I told her that he had a short story he read on tour that made a buncha people faint, and how its in his newest novel, Haunted. She wanted to read it, even if just to see if she could. I'm just wondering, from a female's perspective, what the reaction is to the story. Especially with the wax thing, because obviously a woman wouldn't do least not exactly that. Is it well recieved, is it as powerful, disturbing, etc?

I don't mean to limit and label people's responses in terms of their gender. I know many females that were interested by Fight Club, though one could say it is generally a "men's" movie. I was wondering if the same applies to Guts.
