I just finished Survivor by Chuck Palahniuk. It was a very good book, and takes a hard look at several different topics, including pop culture and its dark similarities to some not-so-pop religious cults. The writing is excellent, and the plot is captivating, and I heartily recommend it.

However, I have to admit that I feel about this book the way I feel about the film 25th Hour. I really liked it, and it was very powerful. I just can’t figure out what the hell it was really about! It’s like I missed something important, and I can’t put my finger on it, and it drives me nuts.
