Book Suggestions

Recommended Reading Books chosen by Chuck Palahniuk fans (the author of Fight Club) for Chuck fans.

Wake Up, Sir! by Jonathan Ames
Great, funny, funny book about an alcoholic. could be the funniest book I have ever read. imagine Chuck-meets-David-Sedaris.

Set the House in Order by Matt Ruff
If you liked fight club and split personalities, this one is great. -- melinda

Ishmael by Daniel Quinn
tells the tale of a man learning about life, history, and the nature of our world from a gorilla named Ishmael. thought-provoking and essential for any chuck palahniuk fan. -- LMS

Kingdom of Fear by Hunter S. Thompson
a collection of stories from Hunter's life, best book i've ever read -- sextones

Vernon God Little by D. B. C. Pierre
the modern day Catcher and the Rye dealing with something that has been extremely prominant in our society today - school shootings. Great humor, but with depth makes this book a must read. -- Andy

Everything Is Illuminated by Jonathan Safran Foer
You can't really explain it. It's like trying to explain "Donnie Darko" rather than saying, "you just have to see it." -- Shelbilina

Lucky by Alice Sebold
Sebold's true tale of her experience with being raped in college and how she dealt with it. I liked it even better than The Lovely Bones because it is more chilling since it actually happened. -- AmandaG

Kiss Me, Judas by Will Christopher Baer
This one has been recommended by everyone. I don't think there is a chuck fan left who has not read it yet.

The Contortionist's Handbook by Craig Clevenger
Beautifully writen and the true sense of a "page-turner". Best book I've read in years. Chuck say's it is the best book he has read in easily five years, maybe ten. -- Jethro

A Million Little Pieces by James Frey
A man wakes up on a plane bloody, covered in vomit and jonesing for any illegal substance he can get his hands on...sound like a Chuck Palahniuk beginning to you? Funny, savage and heartbreakingly sad, this book...a true story, by the way...was impossible to put down - a MUST read! -- Derek

Marabou Stork Nightmares by Irving Welsh
It's a pipe-dream, a wet-dream, and a harsh soccer riot all in one. A frightening look at the life of soccer rioters, sex, and drinking, presented in an indescribably creative way. Read this. You will be pleased -- E-Rock

Reefer Madness by Eric Schlosser
from the man who gave us fast food nation comes another social commentary on the american underground. three essays describing the marajuana laws, migrant workers and the porn industry. if you liked fast food nation you'll like this book! -- destroyed by love and rumour

Hell's Half Acre by Will Christopher Baer
Brand new from WCB. I think this might be the best book that I have ever read. -- jenx
