Summary

A great collection of stories from the author of Fight Club.

In 'Zombies', the best and brightest of a high school become tragically addicted to the latest drug craze: electric shocks from cardiac defibrillators.

While in 'Tunnel of Love', a massage therapist runs the curious practice of providing 'relief' to dying clients.

And in 'Excursion', Fight Club fans will be thrilled to find a side of Tyler Durden never seen before.

Doesn't make em like he used to!

Chucks first about 8 books are some of the best I've ever read, they haven't quite managed to stay at that incredibly high standard. There was still some good story's in this book, but some i didn't like.

Crude. Yet creative and well-written.

Morbid, but as real as a trainwreck, couldn't put earphones down until finished! Thank you, Chuck.

Fantastic collection of stories

Chuck Palahnuick has narrated stories that will forever remain in my mind. So many of them made me want to throw up in disgust. However, I could not stop myself from listening.

Painful listening.

This made for painful listening, very irritating delivery and narration and odd subject choices. tried the first 3 chapters and had enough of them by that. very disappointing given other titles such as fight club by the same author are much better.

Excellent loved it

Chuck Palahniuk at his "I should not be laughing at this" best. Gloriously Irreverent cynical best
