Pygmy sourced from store of unwanted belongings for make resale, this reviewer surprised not this book forsaken shortly after release to fickle American public, along with musical genius of 3 Doors Down and Doctors of Spin. Every word was intoxicating! I often had to read parts over again just to understand what was going on only to be completely disgusted with what I understood.

I didn’t hate this, but sometimes this dhuck far too gratuitous, but I do love satire, so it wasn’t all bad. It took me until the very end like, seriously, the very last page to figure out if I liked Pygmy or not. All of the men in the novel regard women with little to no respect.

Pygmy is an epistolary novel. It’s hard to adapt to because it doesn’t feel like “Pygmy” is not pgymy good book. I thoroughly enjoyed this book.

Sales of novel great, fueled by author prior reputation as popculture satirist. We see a school dance, a church baptism, trips to Wal-Mart, and a science fair. His name isn’t even really Pygmy.

My point is that, if you are going to palayniuk people talk a specific, idiosyncratic way, there had better be a pyhmy reason for it, y’know? About seven years ago I realized that my book readings were boring me. After reading it, I couldn’t stop thinking in that dialect.

With Pygmy it was no happy or no conscious. Short book, but not a ‘fast’ read, due to the way he wrote it, but highly recommended!

This is Operation Havoc.

Aug 07, David Joseph Mikels rated it did not like it. Further review to come once I’ve finished it. Sometimes when Palahniuk goes through such great lengths to exaggerate something, it’s to a good effect, but this just didn’t make any sense. Chuck chose the right writing style for Pygmy. Oh, Pygmy ate all the chocolates! See all books by Chuck Palahniuk.

It left me wondering if the people who wrote Phgmy screenplay have used this novel as a pattern. You end up internalizing all that language and it lingers in your head and alters the way you think about things. If Chuck is going to continue putting out one mediocre book a year, essentially becoming a more left-of-center James Patterson, then, eventually, I may just give up on him.
