4.0 out of 5 stars INVENTIVE, UNPREDICTABLE, FUNNY! AUDIO REVIEW
While voice performer Hillary Huber records for a number of major publishers this listener is delighted that Blackstone signed her on for TELL-ALL. She delivers a controlled, easy listening narration - "controlled" is not easy to do when the author is Chuck Palahniuk Those who have read or heard his previous works (Pygmy, Fight Club, Invisible Monsters, to mention a few)...

2.0 out of 5 stars Not the Palahniuk of old
As an avid fan of Chuck Palahniuk and all of his work I have to say this book left me wondering what has happened to him? It's less than 200 pages and is predictable like none other of his works. The aspect of his writing I appreciate the most is the twists, the turns, the ability to take a story far beyond where the average mind is capable of imagining... in short...

This review is from: Tell-All (Audio CD)
While voice performer Hillary Huber records for a number of major publishers this listener is delighted that Blackstone signed her on for TELL-ALL. She delivers a controlled, easy listening narration - "controlled" is not easy to do when the author is Chuck Palahniuk Those who have read or heard his previous works (Pygmy, Fight Club, Invisible Monsters, to mention a few) know he's one of the most inventive authors working today - unpredictable, ambitious in subject matter, funny, and impossible to pinpoint.

TELL-ALL has been likened by someone as a cross between Page Six and Sunset Boulevard. Palahniuk takes on celebrity - how it is perceived, what it is. He gives us a cast of multitudes headed by Katherine Kenton, an aging but not about to give up movie star and Hazie Coogan who has long been her servant, protector, flunky, and major-domo seeing to whatever Miss Kathie needs through her numerous love affairs, and major movie moments. The alcohol imbibing sexually rapacious star is adored by her public who see only the image presented to them.

Webster Carlton Westward III, one more suitor, soon appears and has little trouble in winning over Miss Kathie but he has an agenda of his own. He has already penned a tell-all memoir of their affair with a fatally unhappy ending. Another challenge for Hazie

Rife with gossip and enough name dropping to satisfy the most celebrity hungry fan TELL-ALL is a riff on old Hollywood. It's pure Palahniuk.

Enjoy

2.0 out of 5 stars Not the Palahniuk of old, Sept. 22 2010
This review is from: Tell-All (Hardcover)
As an avid fan of Chuck Palahniuk and all of his work I have to say this book left me wondering what has happened to him? It's less than 200 pages and is predictable like none other of his works. The aspect of his writing I appreciate the most is the twists, the turns, the ability to take a story far beyond where the average mind is capable of imagining... in short Tell-All was not one of those books. This is a collection of Bold Faced name dropping amungst words that somehow form a sentence, and is really hard to read. More difficult even than Pygmy(and that was a struggle!) Having recently reread Choke, my favorite of all his novels I must say I miss the Palahniuk of old.
