but then the novel seemed to drag on And on And on Or maybe I wasn t in the mood Try it out and see what you think The most memorable story was about the pool you ll know when you get there hahahaha Haunted Is A Novel Made Up Of Stories Twenty Three Of The Most Horrifying, Hilarious, Mind Blowing, Stomach Churning Tales You Ll Ever Encounter They Are Told By The People Who Have All Answered An Ad Headlined Artists Retreat Abandon Your Life For Three Months They Are Led To Believe That Here They Will Leave Behind All The Distractions Of Real Life That Are Keeping Them From Creating The Masterpiece That Is In Them But Here Turns Out To Be A Cavernous And Ornate Old Theatre Where They Are Utterly Isolated From The Outside World And Where Heat And Power And, Most Importantly, Food Are In Increasingly Short Supply And The Desperate The Circumstances Become, The Desperate The Stories They Tell And The Devious Their Machinations To Make Themselves The Hero Of The Inevitable Play Movie Non Fiction Blockbuster That Will Certainly Be Made From Their Plight Fair warning this is a dark, disturbing, and horrendously gruesome book If you have a weak stomach, have difficulty with the idea of self inflicted violence in every conceivable form and fashion, or can t imagine a world where death is not the worst thing that can happen then this is not a book for you Otherwise, Chuck will not disappoint.Haunted is written in a somewhat unusual, at least to me, style There is an over arching story that frames a collection of short stories, each of which is preceded by a short about one of the characters The short stories are meant act as a window into the past of each character in the framing story For me, this style was a bit of a problem The contextual switches between the short stories kept distracting me That coupled with the text s graphic content forced me to read the book muchslowly and in much smaller chunks than I would have liked.My introduction to Haunted was an article on Chuck Palahniuk s site, The Cult, titled The Guts Effect Guts is the first of the short stories after the opening scenes of the framing story It does a good job of setting the tone for the rest of the book and is by no means the worst of what lay within I don t know if I can convey to you how horrific this text is without giving too much away.I ll say it again, fair warning This is not a book to read if you re having even the slightest hint of stomach troubles. Parts of this book grossed me out so much that I felt weak in the knees I m always super impressed when an author can make his or her reader feel such strong feelings just using words It s one of the best books I ve ever read in that respect Also, I will always think of this book in the future when I m trying to enjoy Calamari Thanks, Chuck Palahniuk, for making all future trips to the Olive Garden evenupsetting and nauseating Seriously, awesome I have very eclectic tastes in reading My ideology no book is bad Some unusual books, like this one, end up being awesome This book caters to those who appreciate twisted thinking It is also takes a deeply insightful yet intellectual look into the social, emotional and psychological aspects that comprise our humaness for lack of a better term without apology for being brutally open, honest and blunt about those things that we may not like about being imperfect in our humanity, but that are albeit truisms You will see yourself in some way, shape or fashion in one or some of these characters.Admittedly, the book from the first chapter made my stomach turn and I almost gave it up I forced myself to continue I found that a well woven story developed and I could not put it down Hmm how would I describe it Alfred Hitchcock meets Stephen King meets Dr Freud meets Dr Jung and on and on You get the picture I do caution that if you don t like to be disturbed nor made to think really think about some not so nice human behavior don t read this It aint roses and sunshine, but it will make you really think Enter at your own risk and enjoy I first read a review of this book in a magazine What drew my interest to even reading it was that it said during a reading someone literally threw up while one of the scenes was being read I will advise you that this book is very twisted, dark, perverse, and sometimes hilarious I have always loved this book most by Chuck because it was the first one I ever read and it really shocked me on some levels and has always left me wantingof his writing This story has multiple story tellers that are all part of a main story and tell their personal stories individually It is a good way to feel connected to the characters and to really get inside their heads Haunted is not for those who do not like gore, strangeness, or perversion in their books but I do recommend it if you enjoy something strange, the multiple point of view type stories, and are not afraid to be haunted.
