Thankfully I kept at it just the same.
Of the 23 stories included in this book, 'Eleanor' was the only one that made me genuinely feel like I was wasting my time. The remaining stories were typically interesting enough to read, but there were almost a dozen that really stood out to me as being great pieces of literature, or as close as Palahniuk gets to that.
The loosely connected 'How Monkey Got Married, Bought a House, and Found Happiness in Orlando,' 'Why Coyote Never Had Money for Parking,' and 'Why Aardvark Never Landed On the Moon' were interesting and wholly unexpected modern fables, with the gritty sort of charm that one comes to expect from Palahniuk after even minimal familiarity with his work.
'Torcher,' my favorite story in the collection was a fascinating murder mystery set in the perverse circus-like environment of an event quite similar to Burning Man.
'Red Sultan's Big Boy' puts a very unique, introspective spin on the combined topics of parenthood and bestiality.
The potentially disturbing form of abortion being practiced by high school girls in 'Cannibal' is definitely Chuck at his humorously/irreverently gruesome best...at least until you read 'The Toad Prince,' which provides an absurdly perverse glimpse into body modification/body hacking taken to an extreme.
Many of the stories have a poignant, sad commentary to them, especially 'Zombies,' which focuses on the pressure and strain we place on our children in preparation for the life of toil and disappointment that often seems to be all they have to look forward to.
There is humor here too, 'The Facts of Life' stands out as being essentially one long joke with a terribly dark punchline...and I loved it.
There are other stories worth mentioning; 'Phoenix,' 'Fetch,' 'Romance,' and 'Expedition' were all thoroughly captivating, the latter tying into Fight Club with a semi-subtle reference to Tyler Durden, portraying him less as a man than a force of nature who appears decade after decade to teach disillusioned men to come to terms with disappointing fathers and that pinnacle of disappointing fathers, God.
I could probably comment on every story included in this book, but the ones I have mentioned are those that had the biggest impact on me as a reader.
I wasn't sure I would like this book when I first started reading it, but I definitely came to love it.
I really do love this set of his short stories. I feel like it gives you the pleasure of reading his books but in smaller servings. You sort of get to tear through several at a time and then just walk away thinking about what you just took in (until your next read). A lot of fun & would recommend to any fan or possible new fans, wanting to get a taste.
Probably best for people more familiar with his work than those that just saw the movie version of Flight Club.
