Diary by Chuck Palanihuk

I finished it a couple of days ago... Who's read it and what do you think?

Read it myself when it came out.

Quite frankly, not his best. In fact, nowhere close.

Still a good book though, surprisingly.

I am going to read this very soon, because I love Paluhniuk and all of his work I've read so far.

I thought it was a good read, esspecially since I go to an art school (for film). Some of the crap she goes through are pretty true.

It is probably my least favorite of all his books. But I thought it was still really good. I read it in three days, which is strange because I usually take a month to read a book.

Pretty good IMO. I actually laughed out loud a few times. It was a pretty quick easy read for me.


For the people who have read it, who could you picture playing Victor in a movie version of it? I still can't come up with anyone.

Edward Norton is who I would choose to play the main charaters in pretty much all of the adaptions to Palahniuk's work (especially in Survivor and Choke).

Norton is one of my fave actors, but I think he might be a little too old to play Victor. I actually think Gylennhall might be a pretty good choice.

It was ok... felt more like a Lifetime for women movie than anything.

The only other book of his I've read has been lullaby, and it kicked ass.

I think Chuck P. gets into the heads of his women characters pretty well. He did so in Invisible Monsters and in Diary.

If there were a movie of Choke... Who'd you want to play all the characters?

EDIT: Damn i forgot someone posted similar.

I pick Jake Gylennhaal for Victor Mancini. (I finally read it and am re-reading it)

This is the only book of his that I have not read. I own it, and it sits next to the rest of his books on my shelf. I just have never been able to get into past the first couple of chapters. I think it might be because it doesn't have that immediate hook that the rest of them have. I will be giving it another shake soon.
