Choke Summary

Choke - Victor Mancini, a medical-school dropout, is an antihero for our deranged times. Needing to pay elder care for his mother, Victor has devised an ingenious scam: he pretends to choke on pieces of food while dining in upscale restaurants. He then allows himself to be “saved” by fellow patrons who, feeling responsible for Victor’s life, go on to send checks to support him. When he’s not pulling this stunt, Victor cruises sexual addiction recovery workshops for action, visits his addled mom, and spends his days working at a colonial theme park. His creator, Chuck Palahniuk, is the visionary we need and the satirist we deserve.

    This is the first book I have read by Chuck. Love it and plan to read all of his books.
  • Awesome Book

    By Sleepinbug
    the book was really awesome, and its usually hard for me to focus and read a whole book quickly but this one was great. the movie was a whole different animal, it had a more comic relief to it. read the book first then watch the movie.
  • Epic!

    By ChuckfanKev
    This book was the first of Chucks books I've read and I have to say its my favorite. I couldn't put it down and I've read it about a dozen times. It gets better each time.
