SNUFF by Chuck Palahniuk

cover

Awww too bad, I really loved Fight club and I was really looking forward to find some grit in this novel, sadly all I’ve read were a parody of porn titles and porn slangs that made me uncomfortable but I must say that it’s a bold move for Chuck Palahniuk to write a novel about Porn.

“Six hundred dudes. One porn queen. A world record for the ages. A must-have movie for every discerning collector of things erotic.”

Yes that’s right!!! I must say the premise really caught me. To write about how the porn industry works and as to why it never gets old, in fact it’s a growing industry. In this novel not only women are objectified and exploited but also men, it points out the psychological aspect of the people who ended up in such business, it talks about social issues such abuse, rape and rejection. Chuck had the right elements to make this novel work but disappointingly his execution fell short of what I was hoping for and focused more on making sure he had enough porn titles we should know about… Chuck I get it okay!?!

Rating: 2/5
