    "Begins here first account of operative me, agent number 67, on arrival Midwestern American airport....Code name: Operation Havoc." Thus speaks Pygmy, one of a handful of young adults from a totalitarian state sent to the U.S. disguised as exchange students to live with typical American families and blend in, all the while planning an unspecified attack of massive terrorism

    Overall

    I've read (mostly listen to) all the other works of Palahniuk, and love his writing style. However, this book is a failed experiment to change the writing style. You basically have to try to decipher every single sentence to understand what it really means because when taken literally it makes no sense at all - by design. If that sounds appealing to you, I would recommend picking up the paper version so you can easily pause after each sentence and decrypt... trying to do so from audio while driving is completely impossible.
