A total return to form for Palahniuk and the most I've enjoyed one of his books for many years.
After loving his first three or four I felt he went off the boil, moving away from the dark underbelly of human nature into other areas that just didn't have the same edge. SNUFF makes up for that, however, an intricately structured, utterly engaging listen.
There are the usual tics (verbal and literary) which have become Palahniuk's trademark and although at times it can get a little much it also really does help to crystallise the individual personalities of each of the main characters. There's also the trademark twist which wasn't exactly a surprise but the story kept me involved deeply enough that I wasn't really thinking too much about what might happen.
Snappy, hip but also extremely moving and perfectly shaped (sorry to go a bit synesthetic), this was a fantastic listen

Chuck Palahniuk writes about a variety of topics. Each time he finds something new in the human condition. Talking about the Porn industry and those it attracts isn't an easy read. Yet Palanhniuk write a story about humanity in all its gory detail. This story has stayed with me for a while, which I didn't think would happen from such a short story.

Didn't keep me interested at all. Was excited for this book! Had potential, but was a bore. I may try to finish it. I have an hour left. Compared to other books I've been reading such as The Girl with All the Gifts, Gone Girl, The Martian, I just felt like I was wasting my time.
