palahniuk definitely has a style all his own and his stories are interesting and move quickly and keep you guessing. this has a few problems but is good. i still rank Fight Club #1, Choke and Diary tied for #2, Lullaby, Survivor and Invisible Monsters next and Haunted last.
This book was so interesting, kept me on my toes & just surprised me right til the end!!
It was my choice for me book club & I can't wait to hear what they all thought about it!
Amazing story, told in only a way Chuck Palahniuk could. His grasp of how to get his characters down is frightening and Anna Fields ability to capture them is beautiful! I'm so excited to listen to more by Chuck Palahniuk as well as things narrated by Anna Fields!!!
Everything. I wanted a refund after 30 seconds into this.
Nothing from this author
No. None. Unless you like feeling semi-psychotic. That is how this is written, and to hear someone try and read this aloud just gives me a raging migraine.
Not sure why this author is so popular, other than fact they made Fight Club into a movie.
So apparently, Chuck made Fight Club after he couldn't get this published. That's quite apparent. I would consider this as a rough draft of Fight Club. It contains many of the same themes, but is less polished as the more popular book.
The biggest flaw of Invisible Monsters is the abundance of unbelievable plot twists. They get absurd to a point, and almost made me dislike the book. Also, it can get rather repetitive at times, with the abundance of the "Sorry mom. Sorry God." and "Give me...Flash" lines. But the brilliant quotes and one liners and the vibrant characters make me overlook these peccadilloes. The unique writing style captures your attention from the beginning.
This was a great listen, flaws and all. I'm glad that I checked it out.
