SNUFF THE READ, SPOILERS INDEED

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 dont know; it was something mirk said earlier, about not ever reading it. it has occurred to me a couple of times in the past year to particularly ask her what she thought of the book, being that the story if far removed from her general like of bookreads; i just kept forgetting. then i read in a post earlier that she exhibits absolutely no interest in reading it. like, as in, ever haha

i can only imagine that the amount of chuck fans here who do not hold desire to someday read snuff is legion; but i do desire to understand a majority of the reasons. the fors and againsts. thoughts, specific ideas.

i didnt like choke. not that much, anyway. that book was sordid, poor-me, just silly to me with the birthday and christmas card money because of staged chokings; though, the sex addict workshop and the honest in-belief as a descendant of christ was pretty fun. in other words, even if i knew everything about the book prior to reading the book, i doubt such foresight would have deterred my reading of it in resolve. i certainly enjoyed parts. as with snuff.

except, with snuff:

there is no illusion: it is not a deep book with rich characters. there is no existential mountain of porn, no project mayhem homework assignments, nor credish death cult members, no apparitionous messiah on a stretch of highway road reviving struck animals.. it is about porn, set up like a porn set the way invisible monsters was fashioned like a fashion pin up magazine. flash, and you get a whole history about the porn world; it does not find the deep.

but it is a fun read. my woman, mortified, threw the book down a few times. "This guy is fucking sick." and thirty minutes later, she'd be back on the couch reading what happens next. gross and all, the book is still a fun read !
