Chuck Palahniuk


#1

I couldn’t find the Chuck topic, so i started a new one.

Anyway, I found some audio of Chuck reading the infamous short story “Guts”, u know, the one that made all those people pass out. Here you go <LINK_TEXT text="http://gominosensei.org/warez/Chuck_Pal … -Guts.mp3">http://gominosensei.org/warez/Chuck_Palahniuk-_Guts.mp3</LINK_TEXT> Enjoy! ;D

Do you know if you can get that story off of the internet? i heard about it a while back, and ever since then i have really wanted to read it. i have heard that many people passed out or vomited just by listening to this short story read out loud and one man even went bonkers and started barking like a dog.





Choke is the shit, but the way


#3

That is the story, him reading the full thing. I wish he wouldve come to Chicago.


#4

Its also being released in print as part of a volume of short, horror stories by him later this year. I’m looking forward to it.


#5

i heard that Guts is supposed to appear in the March edition of Playboy, for anyone interested. here is a cool link about the story from someone who attended a reading: http://funsmart.diaryland.com/palahniuk.html

totally agree, choke is fuckin awesome

(i like Fight Club more, though)

Man, I love Palahniuk.



Choke had lots of potential, but in the end it kinda failed to deliver. Dunno why. I liked Survivor better. Absolute brilliance. I’ve never had a chance to read Fight Club, although I’d like to, because it’s one of my top 10 movies, and a novel is almost always even better.



I just adore his style.


#7

I almost forgot:



Fans of Palahniuk’s style: be sure to read stuff by Irvine Welsh, too. “Trainspotting” is a masterpiece, but if possible, I love “Filth” even more. There has been many one star reviews of this book, but I think it’s marvelous. I guess it’s just one of those novels that you either love or hate. Nothing in between


#8

I got to the end of the carrot thing and the begginning of the towel neck suicides and then i turned it off out of bordome…


#9

I couldnt get the MP3 to work, so if anybody knows where I can get a transcript, it is much appreciated.

Damn porn laws


#12

it was ok - something different from him - his book LULLABY was tough for me to get through. I really liked Survivor, Choke & Fight Club though


#13

I agree that Lullaby was tough to get through, particularly the middle…I rank the Chuck Palahniuk books like this:


  1. Fight Club
  2. Invisible Monsters
  3. Choke
  4. Survivor
  5. Lullaby
  6. Diary

That stand up audio thing was fucking stupid. That sounded like an gross overlong schoolyard joke. If anyone else were to say the shit that he says, they’d get made fun of. This guy is a sick fuck.

Thats why everyone loves him. ;D

it was preety gross…


#17

I listened to it this morning, and boy that was some messed up stuff. A couple of moments I almost felt like hitting pause or something. Really been playing through my mind all through the day, when the details fade from memory I’ll feel better :wink: Although I’ve only read Fight Club, Palahniuk’s got a very witty style.


#18

That was great. Palahniuk is so fucking awesome.


#19

I have yet to listen to “Guts”, but I have to say Palahniuk is one of my favorites, and I’ve only read Fight Club and Choke. His writing just kills me.


#20

All that stuff really happned, he didnt really know those ppl, but when he was researching for Choke, he started talking to ppl about their horror stories, and i guess he got so many that he just wrote a short story about it.
