Judgment A living condom As disgusting as the first in "The Series DAMNED Was DOOMED Is Somehow Even Disgusting Even " series DAMNED was DOOMED is somehow even disgusting even it doesn t contain lakes of the series DAMNED was DOOMED is somehow even disgusting even though it doesn t contain lakes of fluids land filled with nail clippings and giant sexual organs No this is a different kind of disgusting If you ever felt tempted to use a glory hole this book will dissuade you If you were ever reluctant to dispose of the body of your dead cat this book will change your mind And if you ever wanted to try on a dead person s body for size this book will help you rethink that deplorable idea This is perhaps the most brilliant end of the world story Satan s greatest plan for the damnation of the human race plays out in these pages Be prepared to belch and fart your reverence for the almighty Maddie I was really excited to read this book as I used to love Chuck Palahniuk particular favs were Diary and Lullaby However something appears to have happened either to me or his writing I ust couldn t stand the voice of Maddison the main character who is stuck in purgatory in this seuel to Damned The blog post thing felt too fake like he is Cuckolded! Taken By My Husbands Bully just trying to write in a hip format and attract a younger readership The text felt forced the writing was trying too hard trying too hard to be cool and speak the language of a younger demographic I am only 32 but I am so sick of reading text like that I read a novel because I M SICK of reading short blurbs blog posts tweets etc I want longuicy thick paragraphs and this book was so snippy I couldn t really sink my teeth in to it Too bad he used to be such a great writer always with edgy ideas that bloomed into good prose Find all of my reviews at Spencer did what all residents of Hell do on Halloween she returned to Earth for an evening of candy gathering Unfortunately she also missed the midnight curfew and is now stuck in Purgatory aka Earth as a ghostI realize Chuck Palahniuk is a polarizing figure Nothing is off limits when it comes to what he writes I ve always been a fan of his over the top stories and have been a pretty zealous defender of his work Until now While I found Damned to be entertaining and brilliant sadly Doomed Competitive Strategy: Techniques for Analyzing Industries and Competitors just REALLY sucked I realized too little too late that Madison Spencer is a vapid waste and the rest of the ensemble cast is what made Damned so enjoyable From wishing I could kill Maddie all over again and end my misery to wishing I had a barf bag handy for the pointless suick out factor this book proved to be an absolutely unnecessary seuel And the most horrifying thing about Doomed The final words The End NOT A UESTION MARK SAY IT AIN T SO CHUCK Doomed Chuck Palahniuk Chuck we love you Please remember that Lullaby is one of the most amazing books I ve ever read and I even found a way to work it into my master s thesis Choke is cutting social satire of the first order Fight Club one of the greatest films ever made Survivor is brilliant in plot character and execution and don t get me started on the thrill ride that is Haunted But I do have a few pet peeves that pop up in Doomed the seuel to Damned First I don t have much patience for fiction written in the voice of a child No matter the skill of the writer an adult giving voice to a child always comes across as inauthentic and in the worst cases foolish Also exactly what are we to learn from a child narrator It certainly won t shock or disturb any hardened reader of horror or transgressive fiction Second humor in horror is an iffy proposition When it works it s organic or the comedy is disturbing than the tragedy for example many of the stories in Haunted Better incidental humor than intentional Doomed reads like a Christopher Moore novel albeit an extremely dark and cynical one I m a fan of Moore s but his brand of humor is expected When I read Palahniuk I look forward to that nausea that lingers and ultimately consumes me which I ve found absent in Doomed Doomed expanded on Damned in a way I never expected The story is so much intricate than I ever could have thought a staple of Palahniuk s work Towards the end there were than a few You have got to be shtting me moments which made me appreciate Chuck s work than I reckoned possible Just when I think he s hit his peak he outdoes himself Iust can t believe that now I have to anticipate whether or not the saga will continue. Andfather Papadaddy As she revisits the painful truth of what transpired over those months including a disturbing and finally fatal meeting in a rest stop’s fetid men’s room in which well never mind her saga of eternal damnation takes on a new and sinister meaning Satan has had Madison in his sights from the very beginning through her and her narcissistic celebrity parents he plans to engineer an era of eternal damnation For everyone Once again our unconventional but plucky heroine must face her fears and gather her wits for the battle of a lifetime Dante Alighieri watch your back; Chuck Palahniuk is gaining on ,
Ah time for the annual Why Pete #Loves Chuck Palahniuk ReviewTo be honest there were a lot of things I enjoyed about this I #Chuck Palahniuk ReviewTo be honest there were a lot of things I enjoyed about this book I read ALL of his books other than the Kindle single Phoenix I have my personal favorites of course Doomed isn t a favorite but there were certain moments of heartbreak and humor that made me happy For me a non favorite Chuck Palahniuk book will always do for me than a lot of other authors whether it be on a pure enjoyment rollercoaster level or because I learn "SOMETHING ABOUT WRITING HE S DONE BOTH SOMETIMES COMBINED " about writing He s done both sometimes combined the same packages The other thing about being a Palahniuk fan to me is basically signing up and letting him take you for a ride He decides what that ride looks like and that means the subject matter isn t always up your alley But if you can let go of the idea that you want all of his books to have a strong anti corporation anti religious message of some sorts you ll be fine I promiseThis book is fun It s a good time And if you re paying attention to this sort of thing the way you can when you really delve into a writer s works there s some real playfulness with the writing and the ideas of how stories are told There is a long portion told in flashback and it s handled so smoothly that I had to flip back because I didn t remember the time travel yet it was clear what was going on He s got some of these things down so well that I think a lot of us don t appreciate it It s like a great magician An escape may only look easy because he s practiced it so many times and any one else trying it might not be able to pull it off But in some ways that practiced ease takes away from the drama of the whole thing So keep an eye outAs for the yearly portionIf I had to recommend a few favorites for people who have never read one of his booksOkay in no particular orderChoke I think that although Fight Club is the favorite for a lot to me this will always be his masterpiece I think that for a long time what I always thought attracted me to these books was the plots combined with a masculine appeal that you don t always see in modern fiction But the I think back I think that what really brought me to the table without me knowing it was seeing these portraits of vulnerable fallible men Seeing these emotional wrecks gives a young man permission in a way to not have his shit together Choke is the best example of thatLullaby If you want a tight book with an appealing plot and Captain Tsubasa - Tome 29: La renaissance du duo en or ! just enough weirdness thrown in I think this might be another one of Palahniuk s secret successes You ll enjoy the time you spend reading it even if it s not one of your absolute favoritesRant audiobook This is a great success as an audiobook Reading by a full cast really brings the fun and craziness of this book to light I know this isn t a favorite for a lot of people but I m telling you listen to the audiobookFugitives and Refugees Chuck Palahniuk s guide to his hometown I had this book with me the first time I visited the city and some of it is outdated some still good But it s the best travel guide you ll ever read hands downAnd this is the point where I recommend making the literary field trip Probably one of the dorkier things I ve ever done Hear me outI know this is something book nerds Gentle TweeterOh Iust don t know where to begin This was absolutely agonizing I looked back and saw that I gave Damned book 1 only one star so I should not have expected much from the seuelCtrl Alt FrustratedCtrl Alt HeaddeskAdmittedly Chuck did a helluva ob in perfecting the obnoxious voice of a 13 yr old sassy dead girlBut I think I am Ctrl Alt So Done with CPI can t believe I went through 329 of 329 yes the entire book I am hopeless pages of excruciating misery waiting for something The oke s on me However I found this line noteworthy You never know the complicated deals two people negotiate in order to stay married beyond the first ten minutes And this particular excerpt singlehandedly lifted this book up from a one star to a two star Only the miserable the failures the outcasts will crouch for days to observe the mating habits of a salamander Or to study a boiling teakettle The avant garde in every field consists of the lonely the friendless the uninvited All progress is the product of the unpopularNothing except deep misery leads to real success Madison Spencer the liveliest and snarkiest dead girl in the universe continues the afterlife adventure begun in Chuck Palahniuk’s bestseller Damned Just as that novel brought us a brilliant Hell that only he could imagine Doomed is a dark and twisted apocalyptic vision from this provocative storytellerThe bestselling Damned chronicled Madison’s ourney across the unspeakable and really gross landscape of the afterlife to confront the Devil himself But her story isn’t over yet In a series of electronic dispatches from the Great Beyond Doomed describes the ultimate showdown between Good and Evil After a Hallowee. ,
