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.

So I started this book a few weeks ago based on a recommendation from someone whose opinion I hold in fairly high regard. Has anyone else read this book? It's terrible. The guy has a crazy story, and from what I understand it's semi-autobiographical, but his writing is one cliche after another. If he gets lost in this girls "sea-green eyes" one more time I've going to light it on fire, eat the ashes, puke them up, and take a shit all over it. And it's over nine hundred pages. The worst part is when I tried to talk to my friend to see why he liked he, he got offended and defensive when I told him how I felt (which was more respectable that the fire/puke/shitting comment). But when I look into it, it seems that most people love this book, hailing it as one of the greats of the last fifty years. Am I missing something?
