It is an elite cadre of authors whose materials I have loathed so much I couldn't bring myself to complete them. In fact, in 37 years of reading life, I can count their number on one hand. Today Chuck Palahniuk is breathing that rarefied air. I was so thoroughly sickened by the content of Invisible Monsters that I'm putting it down less than halfway read and you could not pay me to pick it back up. If it were my own copy, I'd burn it, that's how much I really hate this book.
