My inability to read Pygmy

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 bought Pygmy shortly after it was released; read the first chapter, and completely lost all motivation. The writing style is so hard for me to get into - maybe I am just being close-minded.

Does anyone have any ideas on how to get motivated to read this book? I love all of Palahniuk's work, and I'm sure if I adjusted to the writing style I could get completely immersed in this book... it's just having motivation to adjust to the writing style in the first place isn't there.

Also - where does this book rank in your opinion to the rest of Chuck's work?
