So - what do you think of Haunted so far?


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.

Im about on page 70. It seems to me to some times be really great, and others to be a bit annoying. I like the main story better then any of the shorter works so far, though Guts is amusing and I dug Lady Baglady's story. I like how they have all been given designations that fit their personality/look. I think the overall message, one of the horses I suppose, about not using lame excuses to prevent you from doing your writing (though this could be extrapolated into "doing whatever the fuck will make you a complete person") is quite useful/interesting, especially to a wannabe writer like myself.

I think my main problems with the book are a: it doesnt seem to be written as compellingly as his previous works and b: the quilt thing, at least the way its used in Haunted, doesnt seem to flow right. Maybe Ill get used to it. I hope so. I already think its better then Diary, which i didnt hate, but didnt like much either.
They both seem like cases of a good idea that went haywire during its creation.

Anyone else have any thoughts?
