  1. Haunted

    Haunted is a 2005 novel by Chuck Palahniuk. The plot is a frame story for a series of 23 short stories, most preceded by a free verse poem. Each story is followed by a chapter of the main narrative, is told by a character in main narrative, and ties back into the main story in some way. Typical of Palahniuk's work, the dominant motifs in Haunted are sexual deviance, sexual identity, homosexuality, desperation, social distastefulness, disease, murder, death, and existentialism. The synopsis on the dustjacket describes Haunted as a satire of reality television, but according to Palahniuk, the novel is actually about "the battle for credibility" that has resulted from the ease with which one can publish through the use of modern technology. The cover of the 2006 U.S. trade paperback reprint features a glow-in-the-dark image.

    So I figured something out today... You know how people give energy and positive and negative people put energy out and you absorb it... as in if you spend time with positive people you absorb it and become positive and negative works in the opposite way too? You with me? Well I find it real hard to sleep in hotels as they are full of energy... leftover energy (The excitement of holidays, the stresses of work) it is all restless energy... Why are theatres always haunted? You think there are like ghosts everywhere? How many people have actually died in theatre's? I believe it again is energy... actors have loads of energy they fuel it into becoming their character (again leftover energy) enough energy to move stuff around even... Imagine if we actually knew how to channel our energy? I haven't quite figured out all the in's and out's when I do I will get back to you but for now just keep being positive! X
