    I found 'American Psycho' terribly boring.

    snuff was a pretty aweful book. i'd been into palanhuik since he stole my heart with Survivor, and since i bought snuff i havent cared to read anything new that he has made. admittedly i am currently re-reading Haunted, though. that one is actually pretty decent.

    i feel you on the numbing and shock factor thing, but lets face it, his style completely bites off vonnegut so the grossness is all he's really got. other than his gimmick, he had a good thing going on for a while. snuff killed it for me. what a waste of carbon and trees.

    I had the same reaction after reading the Exorcist!! I felt physically ill!! I have read many horror books but this one really ate at me like no other before or since!

    all the new Stephen King hate although I agree, The Stand was really disappointing, and i couldn't get into what my friend calls The Dork Tower series

    I was pretty disappointed with The DaVinci Code; for all the hype i found it pretty poorly written, especially at the end. It read to me like he forgot his deadline and finished it up in about an hour.

    Agreed! Also, the plot twist made me LOL. (Even more so in the movie.)

    I have to agree. I tried to like him, but I just can't get into his writing.
    Masquerading as a normal person day after day is exhausting.
