Cassie Wright, porn priestess, intends to cap her legendary career by breaking the world record for serial fornication. On camera. With six hundred men. Snuff unfolds from the perspectives of Mr. 72, Mr. 137, and Mr. 600, who await their turn on camera in a very crowded green room. This wild, lethally funny, and thoroughly researched novel brings the huge yet underacknowledged presence of pornography in contemporary life into the realm of literary fiction at last. Who else but Chuck Palahniuk would dare do such a thing? Who else could do it so well, so unflinchingly, and with such an incendiary (you might say) climax? Download and start listening now!

Quotes & Awards

  • “Often biting, often hilarious, often awful, but always compelling…Palahniuk has crafted a world of sex devoid of titillation, where human suffering is shelved for a few moments when the cameras begin to roll.”

    Los Angeles Times

  • Palahniuk compassionately and candidly examines the flesh-on-film industry. Publishers Weekly
  • “An absurd dark comedy about damaged people…[Palahniuk’s] descriptive skills, his love of language and his weird humor are in top form.”

    Seattle Times

  • “Chuck and porn. Porn and Chuck—the two go together like fists and brass knuckles, moth and flame: a fatalistic coupling that happens to be, also, a perfect match.”

    Washington Post

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rachael C. | 2/15/2014

    " My feelings about this book are quite ambivalent. The subject matter, obviously, was quite difficult to deal with; however, I recognize that Mr. Palahniuk is an excellent writer. This became clear when I realized I was succeeding in eliciting disgust through his depiction of the unhygienic conditions on a pornography set. I was so grossed out I at times I wasn't even sure I wanted to touch the book. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Stacey | 2/14/2014

    " I expect the unexpected from Chuck P but this was just plain ol' crap. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Krystle | 2/9/2014

    " This isn't my favorite book by Palahniuk but I just had to give it a chance. It makes for an interesting read though :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Charlotte | 1/31/2014

    " Did not expect the ending . . . "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tim T | 1/23/2014

    " What drew me into other books by Chuck Palahniuk was the suspense, interesting plot turns and being sucked into a seemingly well researched underbelly of society. None of that was present in Snuff, and in the end it just got a bit tedious and predictable. All subtlety was thrown out the window, and the attempt at humour was just plain cheesy. Not one of his best. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Santiago | 1/18/2014

    " The point when Palahniuk dropped the ball. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tammy | 1/3/2014

    " My least favorite Chuck Palahniuk book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Natalia | 12/29/2013

    " Epic book, not for the feint of heart or grossed out by sex. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Msjbridgemohan | 12/27/2013

    " At times it seemed over the top and disconnected. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Chelsea | 12/9/2013

    " 1. I still can't stand the guy's writing 2. The plot was thin and predictable 3. The characters were barely developed 4. I think his goal was to talk about the interplay of snacks and genitalia in the grossest possible way TRUE FACT "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Pat Nestor | 11/22/2013

    " Kind of a hard read (no pun intended) and even confusing in places. Palahniuk has talent but it seems he doesn't really try hard in places other to look to shock the reader. Not a terrible book but not too great either. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 The Puzzling Mind | 9/22/2013

    " Worse than a bad porn film script. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lynda Rodriguez | 9/11/2013

    " This book was entertaining and light without being boring. It kept my attention and didn't break my brain "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Magan | 2/14/2013

    " I never thought I would learn so much about the porn industry while simultaneously learning essential beauty tricks for everyday life. The right amount of distaste to whet my appetite. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Patricia | 2/9/2013

    " So obviously really graphic in terms of sex, but still had some good plot twists. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Maiko Lenting | 1/28/2013

    " This book is definitely not for everybody. It's classic Palahniuk but I read the entire book with a disgusted look on my face. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Christina Pirog | 1/6/2013

    " Crazy crazy crazy and great "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lynn | 9/28/2012

    " Really intriguing. I can't even describe it properly, you just have to read it for yourself. Note: if you thought Choke was too risque for you, this one is even worse. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Igor | 9/23/2012

    " Who's going to make the movie? ;-) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bethany | 6/19/2012

    " one for the fans this one "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jeff Merritt | 8/20/2011

    " one of palahniucks two bad books. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Leah | 6/27/2011

    " This was grotesque as far as all his books are but i enjoyed it immensely. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rizal Octora | 6/21/2011

    " Pretty decent, not a big fan of this book, but I think it will be interesting if it's made to the big screen *evil grin* "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Esra | 6/20/2011

    " this book is kinda hard to read, but what you read is really different and hard to absorb "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Micheal | 6/16/2011

    " I loved this book. Seriously, Palahniuk and porn. It doesn't get better than that. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Monica | 6/13/2011

    " This book was surprising chaos. It was absolutely hilarious and at times downright crude. If anything, I think the STRANGE factor hurt it just a bit. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Matt | 6/8/2011

    " Chuck. Read it, be appalled, love it. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Rézina | 5/29/2011

    " Moje první knížka od Palahniuka a zároven možná i poslední. Velké zklamání. Samoúcelná a trapná snaha šokovat za každou cenu. Napište knihu, ve které se bude od zacátku do konce jenom šoustat, a rázem máte bestseller. Když Snuff vynecháte, o nic neprijdete. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dustin | 5/28/2011

    " This one is just as subversive as 'Fight Club'. But if you life that, then you'll like this, assuming hardcore pornographic subject matter doesn't offend you. (I certainly don't mind). It's dark, twisted, funny, and original. And the ending is just crazy. Chuck has quite an imagination. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 meltem | 5/28/2011

    " Yazarin okudugum ilk kitabi ama kesinlikle son olmayacak. Sonu biraz aceleye gelmis hissi uyandirdi ama genel olarak sikici degildi. Ar ve duygularim incinmedi, cinsi arzularimi da istismar etmedi. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tom | 5/26/2011

    " Chuck P. at his gritty best. "Snuff" is and interesting look into the adult film industry and the record setting attempt of one slutty porn star and her film mates. "
