Arrived today. Will start it asap!
Arrived today to my post. Planning to start it soon.
I haven't put my two cents about the book.
It was my first Chuck Palahniuk book, the closest I've ever came was watching Fight Club.
I was a very surreal reading experience but a pleasant one none the less, filled with surprising logic among all the mayhem.
The best of it for me were the discussions on the road trip which were at the same time enlightening, funny and scary.
I was really suprised about this book. It's a great story.
Hope to read more from CP, from him I just new the movie "Fight Club".
«There are more plot ideas in Chuck Palahniuk’s Lullaby than some writers manage in a whole book.»
I'll give it to Terpsicore on this tuesday, hope you enjoy it.

at atrium saldanha
in Lisboa, Lisboa - Atrium Saldanha Portugal.
I will give it today to the next person in the Bring, Terpsicore.
Di78 passed me the book yesterday during the meeting at Atrium Saldanha.
This was my first Chuck Pallaniuk book,and I don't think it will be my last.I liked the spooky atmosphere,it gets even anguishing at the end.Because this fantasy looks so much like real life sometimes.
Not advisable to depressed people.
Will go to BlossomU tomorrow.
Will be passed today to BlossomU

Wow, a fun novel about authanizing lullabies, the sorry state of world economy, why one shoul became a vegetarian, necrophilia, grimoires and parenthood, among others. Really full of ideas, with a definite style ( not sure I go for all those repetitions) and rgeat ideas. Very good, in a very weird way. On the negative side, nothing too definite, just a feelin I had that Mona and Oyster could have been better defined as their own persons, we only ever get S and Helen´s view of them and their anger.
I will try to pass this book to Virgulina or Phoebus-Lazard today. Thanks letra!

Well, I was the victim! Can you say too many BookRings? That's my present situation but I'll try not to hold this book for too long. :)

This was my first experience with Chuck Palahniuk's writing, it was a fast and gripping read, though I can't say I loved this story as much as everyone else. It was a novel idea, I'll give him that, but there were some parts that just seemed too unrealistic and even stupid, especially the use that Mona and Oyster gave to the Grimoire. I also felt that the author didn't go into details that were necessary for us to get more involved in the plot and with the characters.
In my opinion this book could have been a lot better!
Obrigado aos vários "passadores".
A ler nos próximos momentos.
Fiquei preso às palavras deste livro, à sua sonoridade, aos seus encantamentos
Acabei de o ler há já alguns dias e as palavras continuam a dançar no meu ser
Terei ficado controlado pelo autor?
Talvez.. pelo menos conprei o Survivor e já vou quase a meio.
Segue para a witchie ainda hoje
Got this book a few weeks ago. It's in my TBR pile, waiting for its turn.
This was very surreal! But I really really liked it! I read it in about two nights and in the third day I woke up an hour before the clock alarm (by accident, I really didn't mean to) and I finished it. I think the book hasa very good message, despite all the nonsense.
I find it very hard to write about what I felt reading that book (specially because english is not my first language), but it was a mix of very different feelings, some bad and some good. Overall, I think the book is a very good piece of surreal and nonsense literature and the fact that it can make us feel disgusted and, at the same time, still find it a good book, proves it.
Right now, I just want to read more Chuck Palahniuk's books, even though I didn't like "Fight Club" (the movie). I need to know if this "Lullaby" is one of a kind or if this writer is really a good one ;)
Thanks a lot, letra, for sharing this book! It opened my horizons, by showing me a writer I would probably never read otherwise. Thank you so much!

I liked the author's style very much, especially how he creates visual images. This made me feel "standing very close" to the scenes, without really feeling with the characters, but watching. The author does this with very few words. I did not care too much for the story, because the general ideas, e.g. media saturation versus free will, seem too contructed to me, and the Wiccan stuff I don't care for at all. What all in all made reading the book difficult for me was that there was no (as I am aware - conventional) development of the story, but the story mostly is like a line of scenes for me.

Mailed to lesezeichen a few days ago.
Sorry, I received the book a few days ago, thanks!
Last but not least for the 'ring ;-)
Thanks lesezeichen (nice card from Düsseldorf) and letra for sharing this book :*
So great a book !!!! I can't hardly put it aside. I should have finished it on Tuesday but :
- was working early on Wednesday so... I HAD TO sleep,
- forgot the book at work so I HAD TO read another book,
- finished it just a few minutes ago and HAD TO read more of Palahniuk ;-D
I really like the story, the way the author tells about colors, creates -phobics and -oholic words and so on...
Thank you for sharing this book. This is my last word ;-)

Lullaby has returned home safely after being read by everyone in the bookring. It was the first time one of my bookrings has made it to the end.
Thank you to everyone in the bookring for making this happen :)
