Seems to me there is actually a pinch of homophobia in Chuck’s attitude, since according to him, it seems, the only way for someone to possibly become homosexual is to have been molested. Then I’m back at it.

He needs to never have a book published ever again. Want to Read saving…. They just seemed to mostly add length to this already short book.

Everybody in his cult following crowd was young and ultra hip, and obviously has really This is the second snudf book I have ever read. Or at least watched one. Just an author lurching through the motions and stumbling over his own feet. For example, 72 constantly says “I don’t know.

It would take a special kind of writer to do porn or hang around porn stars or watch endless amount of porn for a couple of years ebok then write about it. I don’t know if I can say I’ve even read it because I just cannot bring myself to finish it. The novel is, in fact, a look at a “gangbang,” which for the purposes of this review needs to be explained in a little more detail; because, see, there’s a difference in porn terms between a commercial gangbang something filmed and released all the time in that industry and, say, a group of drunk frat boys doing something unspeakable to a passed-out undergrad in the middle of the night in their rec-room.

Whether or not it was true, I cannot know, but I’m certainly going to look some things up because it was all very intriguing. You’re on the toilet. I suppose that given the subject matter, that’s kind of a double entendre, but fuck it. The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle.
