This book was recommended to me by a friend. We are no longer speaking as this is the most boring book I have ever read/listened too, next to paradise falls.
This is not like Fight club, so don't be blinded by it. It's boring and repetitive
Predictable and boring. Not worth the one credit at all
Performance could be improved if the girl was not so whiny
pretty much everything. It's a a gross depiction of hell and it's tasteless.
don't buy me
Yes, to Palahniuk. But this book was torture, and not in a fun way.
The idea has promise, but not since Mein Kampf have I cared less about a narrator.
eye rolling tween
Very, very few.
I tried. I really tried. But I've never given less of a crap about a protagonist, plot, or conclusion in my life. Finishing it, the last 1.5 hours, was liking pulling on a bone deep hangnail. It was the literary equivalent of an author farting in a mason jar and breathing deeply. Combined with the way too spot on annoying 13 year old voice acting, I can swear to you that every waiting room in hell plays this audiobook on a nonstop loop.
I liked this book. Kinda reminded me of Are you there God its me Margaret gor adults.
But they were all grimy much like the hell in which Madison resides. I felt like I was on a roller coaster of 'this is getting good' verses 'oh, letdown'.
Narration was good, but it'll be a while before I pick up another Palahniuk.
The book had Chuck's typical descriptive style where it was easy to imagine the narrative. This book left me wanting to learn more about the world he created and I found myself rooting for the protagonist.
A busy lady, just tryin' to fit her reading in where she can!
The title would leave you to believe this is a very serious and sinister book ; but honestly it is a very funny story about a 13 year old girl's journey of self discovery. While the landscape of hell is disgusting, the friends Madison makes are funny and help her find out how she really died.
There is no doubt Chuck Palahniuk is a specific kind of author, and his books wont be for everyone, but I think this book is worth a try.
It's an interesting listen, considering its about a kid running around in hell.
It has one, although I didn't enjoy it as much as this one. still worth the listen,
Tai Sammons did an excellent job bringing the character to life.
