Product Description

From the master of literary mayhem and provocation, a full-frontal Triple X novel that goes where no American work of fiction has gone before

Cassie Wright, porn priestess, intends to cap her legendary career by breaking the world record for serial fornication. On camera. With six hundred men. Snuff unfolds from the perspectives of Mr. 72, Mr. 137, and Mr. 600, who await their turn on camera in a very crowded green room. This wild, lethally funny, and thoroughly researched novel brings the huge yet underacknowledged presence of pornography in contemporary life into the realm of literary fiction at last. Who else but Chuck Palahniuk would dare do such a thing? Who else could do it so well, so unflinchingly, and with such an incendiary (you might say) climax?

This is the book where I started getting really tired of Chuck Palahniuk... he seems to just go through the motions of what he's done before, without adding anything new or interesting...

You need to take a shower after reading his books. You feel dark and dirty after hanging out with his train-wreck characters

I didn't know what a snuff film was before I read this. Get ready for lots of penis descriptions and lots of doin' it. A little creepy....

If the prospect of making a record-breaking porno paired with an amoral cast of characters is your cup of tea, Snuff was made for you.

Snuff by Chuck Palahniuk
Cassie Wright, an aging porn star, is filming her finale in the industry with a whopping idea for her closure: to have sex with 600 different men in one movie.  Cassie has been in the industry for years, made thousands of movies (the names of which, coming from Palahniuk's brilliant imagination, will leaving you laughing to tears), and with her once fashion-model good looks gone, she intends to go out with a bang.  She's on the set, and downstairs in a roomy basement await 600 men ready …

Pros: It is short.     Cons: All but about 4 of the 197 pages.     The Bottom Line: The latest book churned out by a formerly grand writer.  Either he's no ability to determine quality anymore or he just doesn't care.  Barely for fans, not for anyone else.     I have read every book Chuck Palahniuk has written so far. Apart from about half the essays in Stranger than Fiction none have been worth reading since Choke (2001).    …
