I Was Only Chocking (Book Review)

Choke - Chuck Palahniuk B+   
Publication Date: June 2002 

I listened to Choke during a road trip to Nebraska, and it stuck with me for days afterwards. Our protagonist, Victor Mancini, is a sex addicted, med-school dropout turned con-artist with a heart of gold.  This is one of those stories where it's hard not to root for the bad guy.  Choke is a profoundly dark comedy with a slightly odd/slightly humorous twist.  It begs the question, "what would Jesus not do?"
