This is author Chuck Palahniuk at his deadpan peak, a mesmerizing, unnerving, and hilarious satire on the wages of fame and the bedrock lunacy of the modern world.

"Good and dark"
I was unfamiliar with this author (apart from the film of Fight Club) but I will definatly be exploring more of his work. It is a dark novel and the author has a really good descriptive way about him. He is able to describe really mundane things and fill them with meaning. This book also contains some good cleaning tips in the course of telling his story, strange I know but you will have to listen to see what I mean. The characters are really well formed and fit perfectly into their roles.
The narration is quite dry indeed the narrator seems to inject anti drama to the character of Tender, but the story and the pace of text compliments the narrators style really well.
I really enjoyed this book although I appricate it is not everyones cup of tea.
having read, seen and listened to fight club i couldnt wait to listen to this. the book is very well written, some very interesting ideas and well formed sentences that really made me think. the narration was really good, the tone fitted the text really well.
