The Chucks

I've been reading these:

Downtown Owl
by Chuck Klosterman
Choke by Chuck Palanuik

D.O is told from 3 pov's and I think it speaks to me so much, because first of all, I've read all of Klosterman's other works, and secondly he has a great way of building character relationships in terms of qualifying them. He makes them human and identifiable. Sometimes I start to read a book, and I couldn't care less about what happens to the characters. And although Klosterman has a detachability from you and the characters, you keep reading. I like that.
