    This is the guy who wrote "Fight Club"---he could be the best damn writer I've read since Joseph Heller.

    Choke was good. Not the best. But good nonetheless. Very funny parts. My kind of humor

    I just read this last week. It was good, but I found a lot of the sex addict stuff kinda unbelievable and stupid, like maybe Chuck was trying to hard to be edgy and sick...

    Then I read todays Something Awful Weekend Web
    (the part of Something Awful where they visit message boards and pluck out some highlights)

    and now I think "Choke" seems kinda tame...

    two other comments on choke
    1. Denny is the real star
    2. I dont understand how people would send him money (especially so quickly) because they saved his life. it doesnt really make sense to me. I mean, if someone saved my life I think it would be more likely I'd try to pay THEM back, rather than ask for financial help or something... does anyone else think that the situations in "Choke" are realistic?
