Lullaby

One of my favorite books that I have read is “Lullaby” by Chuck Palahniuk. It has been a while since I’ve read it so I don’t remember a lot of the details. I do remember, however, enjoying it from the time I picked it up to the time I finished it. Mackenzie is reading it and so that sparked my interest in the book yet again. (SPOILER ALERT)

It was a very interesting concept. The death lullaby is what drew me in at first, but it also has a lot of less obvious undertones in it such as questioning the conformity of society. The characters were complex and fun to read about. It was a story that I enjoyed following and I was very curious to see how it ended.

All of the spells were cool and I was hooked. The ending is so good. Oyster is the worst character in terms of personality and morality.

I read online that there was a kickstarter page created so that there would be a film adaptation of the book. Apparently they reached their goal. The link to the kickstarter is https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/footsteps/chuck-palahniuks-lullaby if you would like to check it out for yourself. I am excited for the movie if it actually does happen. It was a great book and I think that the movie will be great, too.
