Diary: A Novel by Chuck Palahniuk

Today, I finished reading Diary a powerfully written novel by Chuch Palahniuk, author of Fight Club.  Like Palahniuk’s other novels, I found this work gripping and powerful, and touching on so many issues of life, reality, and art. My head is literally swimming from the read. I’ll need some time to absorb the read, and time to think about his writing technique before I can comment more fully. His style is unique, and in this novel he uses repeated lines quite effectively to move his narrative along. In addition, Palahniuk is an expert researcher of the arcane and the esoteric. Warning: Palahniuk is a writer with an edge. If you swoon easily or are easily offended, you probably should read someone else.

Tonight, I watched another episode of Showtime’s The Tudors, and just like when I watched the other episodes, was completely mesmerized. Henry is really going after Anne Boleyne (played by the beautiful Natalie Dormer) in this episode. I can foresee all kinds of imminent disaster and love scenes.
