Day 06 - A book that makes you sad


Chuck Palahniuk’s work tends to be bleak with its dark humor and slivers of hope that make all that darkness bearable. Diary didn’t even have a sliver. The life of the main character was a carefully orchestrated disaster from beginning to end. Nothing about it struck me as funny, even in a dark way, and there was never a moment where hope was evident. I didn’t enjoy this as much as I’d hoped because I found it so depressing. I think that constitutes sad, all right.
