Book Review: "Lullaby" by Chuck Palahniuk #weirdathon
This book has been on my shelf for a long time now, and I thought it might work for both #readmyowndamnbooks and #weirdathon... and it does. Palahniuk is always so wonderfully weird with his stories... I'm so glad I got back to read another from his twisted mind.
Its amazing how I can read about this character, Streator, who clearly has issues that he needs to deal with from his past - issues that are intimately connected to his current situation and knowledge of the culling song, and somehow feel a little bad for him while he is killing innocent people. He brings in a couple of other characters that man, you just hate for their obnoxiousness but have to admit that they are kind of making a point. And I didn't even get to the necrophilia bits.
Its not perfect, and I questioned character motives a couple times (in an already crazy scene, wondering if that person would really still be there or not) but on the whole, I enjoyed this crazy book.
