    One thought on “Burnt Tongues”

    1. Full disclosure I am one of the writers who is lucky enough to have a story in this collection, so a rating of Five Stars must be oozing with personal bias, right Well, yeah, maybe a little, but hear me out If you re like me, you typically take anthologies with a baseball sized grain of salt especially those filled with names that you might not necessarily know It s cool, I get it But here s the thing As someone who has read, re read, and followed each of these pieces from early drafts, to edite [...]

    2. The fact that a fair number of the glowing reviews here were written by those who have stories included in this collection is fairly telling This collection is really a massive disappointment considering Palahniuk himself stamped it with his name For the most part, it includes authors trying to ape Palahniuk s style and doing a poor job of it Characterization is weak, and there weren t really any standout stories for me in the bunch Biggest bust of the year so far for me.

    3. This review was originally published on litdemonThe first story I read in the workshop where the Burnt Tongues anthology was conceived was Heavier Petting It s featured in this collection, naturally After reading it, my innocence was forever ruined I caught the infectious writing bug The one that makes you read and write sick and twisted stories like Heavier Petting The introduction by Chuck Palahniuk isn t something to skip if you don t like reading introductions This is one of those rare cases [...]

    4. A lot of these read as Palahniuk lite, which I suppose gives me a whole new appreciation for him as an author because the lite versions here rarely come close to being as exciting as his writing used to be There s a story about women who have sex with dogs that sort of feels like it s trying to hard, and there s a story about The Game that bored women who work at supermarkets play that reads well but seems totally implausible as a concept I d like to read a whole novel about the characters in Th [...]

    5. This is simply a bad ass book It ran me through the gamut of transgressive inspired emotions anger, nausea, sick hilarity, bewilderment, and revulsion If you like Chuck Palahniuk s stuff, you ll dig these transgressive short stories written by young and upcoming talent As with any collection, there was a few I didn t care for, but most were well done and will haunt me for a long time.

    6. As one of the authors included in the anthology, it goes without saying but I ll say it anyway that it s an honor to be a part of this Every story in here kicks ass For those who are interested in a behind the scenes look on how BURNT TONGUES came to be, read this column litreactor columns burnt tThanks to all who are reading and reviewing BT

    7. These stories were amazing Yes, some of them made me gag and or feel troubled They were gritty and gory, but they have stuck with me I ll never be able to forget them Every time I see a commercial for a weight loss supplement I will think of Miranda Pritchard I find it amazing that writers can make you feel so much in such a short story Brilliant If you enjoy reading things of a transgressive nature, then you should read this book.

    8. This is the type of book that you can t put down, much in the way that when you re offered a taste of something vile and horrifying you just have to see what the disgust is all about In typical Palahniuk fashion, the stories in this book are downright repulsive, endearing and unforgettable The imagery is bizarre and the language is direct, though you will wish it weren t Bunt Tongues offers a taster of what Haunted also by Palahniuk gives except in a sick, demented, bunch of curse wordsy compila [...]

    9. Like most short story collections, Burnt Tongues has a couple of misses, but overall, it was a great read Zombie Whorehouse, Bike, and Heavier Petting are probably my three favorites, because they push expectations and still make relevant social comments Some of the other stories were shocking gruesome but didn t seem to make a larger point Even those stories were fun because the writing was good and the subject matter was pretty far out Personally, I think transgressive fiction works best as sa [...]

    10. A great collection of stories Some hilarious, many disturbing but all entertaining none the less Highlights include Bike by Bryan Howie, Dietary by Brandon Tietz and Zombie Whorehouse by Daniel W Broallt I can definitely see myself returning to these stories from time to time Highly recommended if disturbingly hilarious is something you re okay with.

    11. 4.5 Stars A previous reviewer took the words right out of my mouth This is simply a bad ass book The stories are written very well and there were none that fell completely short Sure, there were a few that didn t grip me as much, but they fit in with the flow of this anthology It was put together very well by Chuck and his team I love that Chuck helped these new authors find a place in the literary world through this anthology These stories shock you and slap the crap out of you They are raw, no [...]

    12. Whoa I didn t know this type of fiction had a name, but now I knowansgressive Rene Chun, a NY Times columnist described it as such A literary genre that graphically explores such topics as incest and other aberrant sexual practices, mutilation, the sprouting of sexual organs in various places on the human body, urban violence and violence against women, drug use, and highly dysfunctional family relationships, and that is based on the premise that knowledge is to be found at the edge of experienc [...]

    13. Tantalizing RawBurnt Tongues secretes a sensation of words through the reader s mouth like a metallic luster, leaving the mind raw and yearning for much as the result of having iodine slowly pumped into the veins for an emergency brain scan From the tantalizing obscure to the tormentingly concrete subjects that seem too taboo for a naive society the writers extend a crafted prose in each story that bring these anthologies to life, making the impractical a conceivable reality for everyone.

    14. I got this book because I will NEVER recover from reading Palahniuk s Guts, and I was hoping for of that type of writing the kind that leaves you disoriented, but just clear enough to hand the work to someone else say oh my god, you have to read this Then giggle softly while watching them gag This anthology did not disappoint Live this Down and Heavier Petting were the real stand outs for me, but I m kinda jaded

    15. Some of these stories were incredible A few that stand out particularly Heavier Petting , Live This Down , Dietary and Zombie Whorehouse , really impressed me with their uniqueness and definitely their subversiveness which I was promised on the front cover Others were a let down Bike and Mating Calls in particular really did nothing for me All in all though, an awesome anthology Very well put together and lots of unique voices and I hope to read from the featured authors.

    16. Without a doubt, this anthology book contains the most disturbing, dark and gory stories I ve ever read They may mess you up Don t read if you re weak hearted Seriously Probably, that s the reason I loved this book so much It exposes the side of humans which is rarely discussed and almost never confronted I m going to reread this one.

    17. most of these short stories were quite good a few were great one or two were unforgettable in the same way that guts was unforgettable so many years ago this isn t an easy anthology to read this alone makes reading it worthwhile.

    18. A weird, cringe worthy collection of short stories that will make you think about a lot of things you ve probably never thought about Just like Palahniuk s writing, you ll wonder why you re still reading these without being able to put it down.

    19. This collection of stories is incredible Each one expertly well written and completely enthralling Some of these stories are not for the faint of heart I especially loved the stories that required a deeper read This short story anthology reminded me that I need to read short stories.

    20. An absolutely incredible set of short stories in transgressive fiction Thank you for all involved participants to make this book I enjoyed every second of it.

    21. Burnt Tongues is a collection of transgressive short fiction It is also a term for the transgressive genre itself Chuck Palahniuk defines burnt tongue as a way of saying something, but saying it wrong, twisting it to slow down the reader Forcing the reader to read close, maybe read twice, not just skim along the surface of abstract images, short cut adverbs, and clich s It also focuses on the things most people don t want to talk about, the darker sides of ourselves that we don t admit to having [...]

    22. As with any collection of short stories, this book is a mixed bag All of the stories are bizarre Some memorably so Dietary, Live This Down, Charlie , using transgressive fiction to create a story worth reading, worth re reading.Others others seem entirely wrapped up in shock value Mind and Solider, Melody.Several of these stories have Palahniuk s influence written so clearly all over them that they read like an imitation of Palahniuk than like a true reflection of the author s own voice Ingredi [...]

    23. A collection of twisted short stories, collated and edited by Chuck Palahniuk As expected, anything that Palahniuk puts his name to is going to be dark, disturbing and should be approached with caution This book is nowhere near as horrific as Haunted by the man himself, but the stories all have the ability to make you recoil in horror At one point somewhere near the middle I had to put the book down for a few hours and collect myself I think it involved a chicken satay stick There were one or tw [...]

    24. I was underwhelmed I don t think I ll remember any of the stories three years from now Only one of the stories about the girl at the grocery store upset me Others the ones about bestiality and zombie sex sort of seemed like they were trying too hard to be transgressive for no real reason What did Simpsons say postmodernism is weird for the sake of weird One gets that feeling here.Anyway, the stories ranged from OK to totally forgettable They were all so painfully short that it was impossible to [...]

    25. Few collections of short fiction can strike with the prosily powerful punch that Burnt Tongues does, it s something that everyone should read If you re worried about being disturbed by the content, good, you should be You will be That is the burnt brain behind the tongue Palahniuk claims in the opening of this collection that, good or bad , a reader will always remember strong writing This is true of Burnt Tongues many of the stories I read have seared images, philosophies, and ideas into my con [...]

    26. I m giving this four stars as an average rating After each story I wrote in a notebook about if the story brought any feelings, if it was well written, and similar critiques With those questions of the story being good to me or not, I rated each on a scale of 1 5 stars Out of the 20 stories my average was 3.8 stars The book overall probably deserves 5 stars not every story is for everyone, but most of the writers wrote a great story Even if the subject wasn t the best to me, I could tell all the [...]

    27. Superb compilation Not every story was a five, but enough of them were to warrant the score for the whole book There were so many different kinds of stories in here Some made me laugh, some made me cringe, some made me question humanity Hell, there was one that devolved into an existential essay and that s totally not a bad thing Overall an amazing selection of short stories from, what I hope to be, a lot of up and coming authors I will definitely keep my eyes out for these names There is a lot [...]
