Book Review: Damned by Chuck Palahniuk

DamnedDamned by Chuck Palahniuk

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

"The only thing that makes earth feel like hell, or hell feel like hell, is our expectation that it ought to feel like Heaven."

Well worth the read and the wait for release.

This is unlike any other Chuck P book. We follow Madison Spencer, a 13 year old girl, who finds her self dead and damned. The book is written as an incredibly disturbing Judy Blume novel. "Are you there Satan, it's me Madison?"

The story is interesting. There is a mix of truth, absurdities, and of course, the obscene.

Chuck comments on our expectations of life and death and the limitations of the single story. "In hell, it's our attachments to a fixed identity that torture us."
