I finished reading Chuck Palahniuk’s Survivor last night and contrary to my early thoughts on the book; I did end up sort of liking the book. It’s not what I would call a good read at all, but rather the story seems to suddenly get interesting once you’re about halfway through.
Kind of like you’re on a long road trip; it’s been raining for the last hour; the sky suddenly clears up, just in time to give you a perfect view of a massive, bloody car accident up ahead. You don’t really want to look, but you do anyway.
Overall, I’d say this book is worth 2.75 points out of 5.
For now, I’ve gone back to reading Masterpieces: The Best Science Fiction of the 20th Century and am roughly halfway through. So far none of the stories in the collection have been stinkers, but here’s plenty of reading left to do and no more time for writing as I have to dash off to work.
