“Outer Dark” - Cormac McCarthy 10/10

“Survivor” - Chuck Palahniuk 10 greasy meat stains (jokes aside I was shocked at how enjoyable this was. I’ve never read anything of his before. I was expecting him to be a bad Brett Easton Ellis clone. I sort of get the Don DeLillo comparisons though he uses far less morose and verbose language. The novel made me not want to read any of his other work as it would probably be disappointing if it isn’t as good)

Despite this series never really blowing my mind or adding up to much more than the sum of parts, it was consistently enjoyable & classy and I routinely found myself missing that world whenever I had been away from it for a while. Recommended that febtus dust the first book off, at least. Honky - you done yet?
Not yet but I need to finish. It's been calling me.
Well that took long enough. Finally finished this and really enjoyed it. Should I go for Book of the Long Sun or naw?
