A middle-aged newspaper reporter is doing a series of stories on Sudden Infant Death Syndrome when he comes across the realization that a certain poem book is found at all the scenes. Do one of the poems have the power to kill? After not-so-unintentionally killing a few people that annoy him, he teams up with a real estate agent to do something about the powerful poem.
This book isn’t as laugh-out-loud funny as Choke was, nor is it nearly as graphic in its accounts of everything, but it is still twisted and good read. Palahnuik loves to have an antagonist that you don’t necessarily like, but you still read to find out what happens to him, laughing at all the good and bad things that come his way. The ending is too funny.
