Feeling Transgressive

Jacket Image: 

Are you a Palahniuk fan? Then this post is for you. In October, good old Chuck released his last book, Damned, and much to his fans’ enjoyment, it seems like a return to form. On the surface, Damned is simply the story of a girl. Madison is a 13-year-old outcast, and an average adolescent – that is, until she wakes up not only dead, but in Hell. Madison decides to solve the mystery of how she ended up in the same place as Adolf Hitler is this quirky and oddly charming story. Full of all the gore and shock that Chuck Palahniuk is known for, Damned is kind of a devilish Breakfast Club type tale. Recommended for fans for Palahniuk's early work or Bret Easton Ellis.
