Beautiful You is a satirical romp into the world’s fixation with pleasure. Through Palahniuk’s focuses heavily on erotic pleasure, this book also touches on the fixation of worldly goods.
With hints of 50 Shades of Grey and a nod to Lysistrata, Palahniuk takes a step away from his prior work (ie. Doomed and Damned) and goes back to his roots of wielding a ludicrous, skeptical look at modern society.
Well worth the read but hard to recommend.
If you are in any way prudish skip this read, 50 Shades is g-rated in comparison to the brain of Chuck Palahniuk.
Beautiful You will be available on October 21, 2014
