Review: Beautiful You, Chuck Palahniuk

Review: Beautiful You, Chuck Palahniuk

This is a silly book. I understand it is meant to be a satire on sex, the role of women in society and consumerism, but really, there is only so far Palahniuk can push the envelope. The thing is that this book is pretty well written (I finished it after… Read more »

Review: Barracuda, Christos Tsiolkas

Out of sheer curiosity I sorted my Goodreads TBR list (all 106 of them) by descending order based on the average rating. Right at the very bottom was Christos Tsiolkas’ controversial The Slap with a measly 3.11. This did not bode well for my next ARC by the same author… Read more »
