Die wohl außergewöhnlichste Familiengeschichte der letzten Jahre

Snuff-Film (v. engl. to snuff out = jemanden auslöschen) bezeichnet die filmische Aufzeichnung eines Mordes, der zum Zweck der Unterhaltung des Zuschauers und mit kommerzieller Absicht begangen wurde. Der Zweck des Mordes selbst ist seine Aufzeichnung.

Auf einem Filmset sind 600 Männer und eine Frau zu einem ganz besonderen Ereignis zusammengekommen: In einem Snuff-Video der Extraklasse soll die alternde Pornolegende Cassie Wright von 600 Männern genommen und so ein neuer Weltrekord im Gruppensex aufgestellt werden. Allerdings wird Cassie diesen Dreh wohl kaum überleben, und das ganze Set rätselt, warum sie ihren Tod durch eine vaginale Embolie in Kauf nimmt. Keiner ahnt, dass zwei der anwesenden Männer nicht nur zum Gang-Bang-Weltrekord, sondern auch zur Lösung dieses Rätsels beitragen werden: Mann Nr. 600, ein Pornoveteran, der immer nur Cassie liebte. Und Mann Nr. 72, ein romantischer Jüngling, der mit Rosen am Set erschienen ist. Nicht zu vergessen Sheila, das Mädchen mit der Stoppuhr, das Cassie verdächtig ähnlich sieht …

Rated 3 out of 5 by from This was a tough one to get through Very hard book to read in terms of how graphic it gets when getting into the behind the scenes of a gang bang movie shoot. I did enjoy all the references to other areas in pop culture and was a bit ashamed that I knew the references to other worlds biggest gang bang movies. I have a few friends that I would tell to give this book a try but not many.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Trying a bit hard Though I didn't absolutely hate this book it seems a little like Palahniuk is throwing everything he has in to make people cringe in hopes they don't find out that, without shock factor, he is a simplistic writer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent read Definitely one of his weirder, more taboo books. But still a great read, plan on re-reading soon.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Interesting, yes. Creepy? Yes. This book has an interesting premise, however you just feel like you're witnessing events unfold as a spectator that's not welcome. It's weird, and it really leaves you feeling like a creeper watching the freaky.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great read I don't understand, why this book has so many negative reviews. The ending is shocking just like in all novels of this author. Yes, it might be a little less creepy, but it is a very interesting book nonetheless.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Novelty Porn Like many others seem to agree, this is not Chuck's best. I was able to see the ending coming from the first quarter of the novel just because I am somewhat accustomed to his structuring. Nevertheless is was a fun read and I still enjoy some of his writing techniques. Worth a go since it is a quick and mostly harmless read.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Bit off from his best I've read several Palahniuk novels and if you are new to Chuck, I'd put Snuff towards the bottom of your reading list. Start with Choke, Invisible Monsters or Fight Club instead.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Snuff by chuck p. I have read many of the palahniuk books, loving the style of each one. The style and shock value in snuff are lacking in comparison with books like "rant" or "lullaby"

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It ends up somewhere strange It's probably more accurate to say you experience Palahniuk's work than enjoy it. It's not generally something you do to feel good. It was an interesting ride, all the same.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Re: The Annabel Chong Story A porn star attempts to break a world record by fornicating with 600 men in a porn film. Told largely from the perspective of three participants, all whom have a relation with the porn star, Chuck Palahniuk weaves a twisted story of satire, porn and crime, sprinkling it with pop culture tidbits. Caution, language and content is definitely not for all. Seriously, I didn't know there were so many ways to describe a wanker (i.e. sock-soaker, bone-beater, pud-pullers, ham-whammers, et cetera)!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Makes you Laugh and Cringe (at the same time) This book is funny but it changes perspectives a lot and is hard to read sometimes. Closer to the end I found myself re-reading because it got confusing. However, I do plan to read more of Chuck Palahniuk's novels. He has some interesting ideas.
