Youre really not understanding what I'm saying - I'm saying that your definition of Palahniuk as 'sadistic' is fundamentally wrong, because he isn't. People can write abuot sadistic or unwholesome subject matter without being sadistic or sick themselves. If writers could only write from their own po...

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v82/codename_puffin/sick.jpg I'm pretty sure 'sick' is fundamentally negative. People thought Picasso was sick. Van Gogh was sick (one of the definitions anyway). Sure, those are two easy examples, but there are many more artists who were unappreciated in their les...

The gore isn't about 'the best way to convey his thoughts' it is the story. Whats wrong with a story being about something distasteful? Does it give it any less right to be told? This entire argument is spawned over the fact that you personally didn't like the story, which is fair enough, but in ord...

The reason it shows how little you understand about the text is that if you'df done a little research, you'd know Palahniuk ALWAYS writes in the first person.

Well, according to the story, the guy did survive, after he bit part of his guts off. So he survived, only with a shorter gut (damn, forgot the proper word for that). I don't know if that's correct anatomically, but if it is, it COULD, theoretically, be Palahniuk himself. This just proves that you ...

Well yeah, I got that impression too. Which was why I thought it should be pointed out.. :?

If other beta testers are anything like me, they will only have selected windows of opportunity in which to actually test. I for instance work 9 to 5 5 days a week (and unlike m,ost people here, have no access to a computer at work, I work at a clothes shop) and can only test on my days off, which a...

You people do realise that this didn't actually happen to Palahniuk right?

He is writing AS A CHARACTER, hence why he uses vulgar, undescriptive language in the description of the events that take place.
