I finished Chuck Palahniuk’s Stranger than Fiction on the flight to Kansas City. Despite it being a collection of short stories (with my aforementioned allergies taken into account), it was a very easy and fast read, and quite fascinating at times. The most chilling perhaps was the description of a hurricane rescue worker and her dogs (used for smelling dead bodies out) from several years ago; it had a disturbing resemblance to the work being done in the previous weeks in New Orleans. While I am not necessarily a big biography fan, I find I enjoy anecdotes from people’s lives, especially when they involve tragic, ridiculous, or comedic events. I only found myself skipping through one story, if I recall correctly. Especially if you have enjoyed his fiction in the past, his nonfiction is just as fascinating. 7/10.
