    Bizarre, but readable and entertaining

    Discussion in 'Book Discussion' started by DefinitelyMaybe, Sep 3, 2012.

    What books are there that are bizarre, at least slightly, but also very readable and entertaining?

    Catch-22 being an example.

    Why do you consider Catch-22 a bizarre book?

    Bret Easton Ellis' American Psycho definitely falls into this category. Also, Naked Lunch by William S. Burroughs.

    It doesn't start with the line "It was a dark and stormy night", and the panties are lime green.

    Crime and Punishment, by Fyodor Dostoyevski is pretty bizarre. Very readable and entertaining tho!

    Thanks very much for pointing out this thread. I've only just arrived and didn't see that thread when first posted. I think that someone with a Father Ted avatar will be someone likely to be looking for something similar to myself.

    Thanks to all the other posters in this thread too.

    Invisible Monsters is hilarious. xD That was my first Palahniuk book.
