What would you do if a you had the power to kill others with a thought? That is one of the various themes explored by Palahniuk in Lullaby. Typical of Chuck's style, the plot moves quickly, characters are quirky but not deeply developed, absurd situations abound and social commentary is strewn about like enticing trash. Although the content was a bit morbid, as usual, I found it to be a light read, as usual. Decent but I liked Choke better.
Palahniuk fans will enjoy it, but it is a bit of a departure in that it is more of a murder mystery than just a life imploding.
