Do mesmo autor que Fight Club. Comprei-o por causa disso. E da capa. nunca li nada deste autor.

What if words could hurt?

Carl Streator is a reporter investigating Sudden Infant Death Syndrome for a soft-news feature. After responding to several calls with paramedics, he notices that all the dead children were read the same poem from the same library book the night before they died. (...)

O melhor livro que li este ano. Ou mais que isso.

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.

Journal Entry 13 by Di78 from Lisboa - City, Lisboa (cidade) Portugal on Sunday, April 4, 2004
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.

Journal Entry 15 by terpsicore from Algés, Lisboa (distrito) Portugal on Tuesday, April 27, 2004
Di78 passed me the book yesterday during the meeting at Atrium Saldanha.

Journal Entry 16 by terpsicore from Algés, Lisboa (distrito) Portugal on Tuesday, May 4, 2004
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.
Thanks Letrra!

Journal Entry 17 by terpsicore from Algés, Lisboa (distrito) Portugal on Wednesday, May 5, 2004
Will be passed today to BlossomU

Journal Entry 18 by BlossomU on Wednesday, May 5, 2004
With me now! Thanks letra and Terpsicore.

Journal Entry 19 by BlossomU on Wednesday, May 12, 2004
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. :)

Journal Entry 21 by usedtobe on Thursday, July 1, 2004
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!

Recebido ontem.
Obrigado aos vários "passadores".
A ler nos próximos momentos.

Journal Entry 23 by Phoebus-Lazurd from Lisboa - City, Lisboa (cidade) Portugal on Tuesday, August 10, 2004
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

Journal Entry 24 by Witchie from Espinho, Aveiro Portugal on Monday, October 4, 2004
Got this book a few weeks ago. It's in my TBR pile, waiting for its turn.

Journal Entry 25 by Witchie from Espinho, Aveiro Portugal on Friday, November 5, 2004
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!

Lullaby arrived safely today. I am reading another bookring book currently, and immediately after that I'll start this one.

Journal Entry 27 by Lisa-B on Tuesday, February 22, 2005
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.

Journal Entry 31 by bilbi from Chambéry, Rhône-Alpes France on Thursday, April 21, 2005
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 :)
