Choke was the first Chuck Palahniuk book I read as well, and I enjoyed it so much, I've read most of his others. But I feel like his work has gone
down hill since Choke... Or maybe the shock value he used to have with me no longer exists.
I had this issue with Palahniuk's work as well. There's no doubting his talent, but the schtick get's old after awhile. I don't feel like he's grown
as a novelist. He's the Nicholas Sparks of shock and awe.
