Unlike Choke, which was just Fight Club rehashed, Lullaby is an original novel, and a novel theme for Chuck. There are definitely parts that needed a editing (and I detest italics) but the book had a unique premise and engaging storyline. ( )

Bleak and readable story about what could happen if people were able to kill at will. ( )

15 year-old me thought this was a cool book. I insisted it was a cool book bc there was no way I would read a book that was dumb.

Chuck feels like the king of Edgy. Thank god after this book I went on to read books that my mum recommended to me. ( )
