"Are you there, Satan? It's me, Madison," declares the whip-tongued thirteen-year-old narrator of Damned, Chuck Palahniuk's subversive new work of fiction. The daughter of a narcissistic film star and a billionaire, Madison is abandoned at her Swiss boarding school over Christmas, while her parents are off touting their new projects and adopting more orphans. She dies over the holiday of a marijuana overdose??and the next thing she knows, she's in Hell. Madison shares her cell with a motley crew of young sinners that is almost too good to be true: a cheerleader, a jock, a nerd, and a punk rocker, united by fate to form the six-feet-under version of everyone's favorite detention movie. Madison and her pals trek across the Dandruff Desert and climb the treacherous Mountain of Toenail Clippings to confront Satan in his citadel. All the popcorn balls and wax lips that serve as the currency of Hell won't buy them off.

This is the afterlife as only Chuck Palahniuk could imagine it: a twisted inferno where The English Patient plays on endless repeat, roaming demons devour sinners limb by limb, and the damned interrupt your dinner from their sweltering call center to hard-sell you Hell. He makes eternal torment, well, simply divine.… (mais)

If you were to take Dante Alighieri's Divine Comedy, mix it with The Breakfast Club, and maybe sprinkle it with some Judy Blume you might be able to piece together the elements of this book. IT is filled with typical Palahniuk satire and wit. It has the absurdity in full force. And the shock value is high.

Admittedly, this is not my favorite Palahniuk book, and probably the lowest rating I have given any of his books... But this review, as is with the book, is to be continued. Maybe it just isn't finished with me yet.

Yes, this book is full of content warnings and trigger warnings and all things that go bump in the night. But that is standard fare with any Palahniuk. ( )

Are you there Chuck? It's me, Craig.

I've read several of your books and enjoyed them all but this one. In my humble opinion, it seems this book is too concerned with being "funny". Sorry. ( )

This definitely isn't as good as Palahniuk's earlier books, but all-in-all, not bad. ( )

I liked it. Thought it lost it a little bit towards the end. Coming on like a Judy Blume character who read altogether too much Bret Easton Ellis, the protagonist is likeable and the narrative moves along nicely.
I liked it more than anything Palahniuk has put out in a while. ... ( )

Great book. I really enjoyed it, especially the graphic description of the journey through hell . ( )

Trust me, the being-dead part is much easier than the dying part. If you can watch much television, then being dead will be a cinch. Actually, watching television and surfing the Internet are really excellent practice for being dead.
No, it's not fair, but what makes earth feel like Hell is our expectation that it should feel like Heaven. Earth is earth. Dead is dead. You'll find out for yourself soon enough. It won't help the situation for you to get all upset.
Probably I woke up because someone was screaming in Hell, someone is always screaming. Anyone who's ever flown London to Sydney, seated next to or anywhere in the proximity of a fussy baby, you'll no doubt fall right into the swing of things in Hell. What with the strangers and crowding and seemingly endless hours of waiting for nothing to happen, for you Hell will feel like one long, nostalgic hit of deja vu. Especially if your in-flight movie was The English Patient. In Hell, whenever the demons announce they're going to treat everyone to a big-name Hollywood movie, don't get too excited because it's always The English Patient or, unfortunately, The Piano.
Another detail to remember about Hell ... whenever you ask why anyone is damned for all eternity, she'll tell you "jaywalking" or "carrying a black purse with brown shoes" or some such pretty nonsense. In Hell you'd be foolish to count on people displaying high standards of honesty. The same goes for earth.
Don't get me wrong. Hell isn't so dreadful, not compared to Ecology Camp, and especially not compared to junior high school. Call me jaded, but not much compares to having your legs waxed or getting your navel piercing done at a mall kiosk.
