Wonderfully deranged. An excellent take on Cthulhu.
Solid beginning, okay middle, VERY messy ending.
Felt like an infomercial about halfway through. Fairly disappointed.
A slow burn descent into grotesque madness and pure self revelations.
How could there be trouble when there are such things of beauty still alive and blissfully living their life in ignorance to the dangers surrounding them? I smiled. Not because of the deer but because of me. I smiled because I found the deer to be beautiful. With everything going on in the world, I found beauty. I hadn‘t lost my humanity. I hadn‘t lost my soul. More importantly - I hadn‘t lost my hope.
I did not enjoy the twist, it really seemed like an easy way out. I mean, don't get me wrong, it does put a nice little bow on end of the story. With the characters not having their memories, we are somewhat denied any sort of character development. It's definitely not as gross as it is made out to be. The gore is far less detailed than the sex. I would check out more from Shaw before I give up on him.
Spectacular, far and away so much better than the movie. They are, in fact so different that I now consider them two different pieces of work/narrative.
Fight Club is a novel for broken men. Men who feel like they have no one to talk to, no one to expose their weaknesses to......it's a commentary on emotional maintenance and I loved it.
