"Private detective Foster Gates is a father is in search of his missing daughter, and sound engineer Mitzi harbors a secret that may help him solve the case. It's Mitzi's job to create the dubbed screams used in horror films and action movies. She's the best at what she does. But what no one in Hollywood knows is the screams Mitzi produces are harvested from the real, horror-filled, blood-chilling screams of people in their death throes--a technique first employed by Mitzi's father and one she continues on in his memory--a deeply conflicted serial killer compelled beyond her understanding to honor her father's chilling legacy. Soon Foster finds himself on Mitzi's trail. And in pursuit of her dark art, Mitzi realizes she's created the perfect scream, one that compels anyone who hears it to mirror the sound as long as they listen to it--a highly contagious seismic event with the potential to bring the country to its knees"--… (mais)

Vintage Chuck, excellent story, very interesting and very over the top. I was left with a few questions, but very good nonetheless. If you like Chuck, you’ll like it.

Chuck Palahniuk was my go to for years. I'm not sure if he has changed or if I have, but this was my second of his this year and I was left disappointed each time.

First off, you have to go into a Palahniuk book knowing everyone you are about to meet is extremely damaged and likely insane. Do not expect normal. Expect weird. Expect (seemingly) disjointed plot lines with lots of useless facts sprinkled about on subjects you have never even thought of before.

The first half of Invention of Sound is classic Palahniuk, lots of intrigue mixed with massive amounts of weird and disturbing people and plotlines. There was all these great ideas floating around and then...well. The ending was a bit of a mess; too many plot lines being juggled at once and none of them came to a successful conclusion.

If you're looking for a good Palahniuk read, I would recommend [b:Diary|22284|Diary|Chuck Palahniuk|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1388196823l/22284._SY75_.jpg|1602261] and [b:Lullaby|22206|Lullaby|Chuck Palahniuk|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1327268513l/22206._SY75_.jpg|1311854]. Lullaby or Diary the Invention of Sound is not. ( )

This book is an exercise in over the top excess ... a bit too much to comprehend at times. ( )

This is my first novel by Chuck Palahniuk. Boy was I in shock to find out he wrote Fight Club. As a person who loves to read, I am so bad and usually don't read blurbs so yea very surprised. This is one of those books where you have many flawed, but interesting characters. It's a quick, dark, and twisted read. ( )
