    “Are you there, Satan? It’s me, Madison,” declares the whip-tongued 13-year-old narrator of Damned, Chuck Palahniuk’s subversive new work of fiction. The daughter of a narcissistic film star and a billionaire, Madison is abandoned at her Swiss boarding school over Christmas, while her parents are off touting their new projects and adopting more orphans. She dies over the holiday of a marijuana overdose—and the next thing she knows, she’s in Hell.

    William says: "As a new Chuck Palahniuk reader, I liked it a lot!"
    "nicely read, though"

    Story

    I know a book by Chuck Palahniuk is going to be unusual. Generally, his works are also entertaining. I loved Rant, Choke, and Pygmy, but this one was just weird, disjointed, and boring. Most of it was blatently insipid. I'm not sure what audience Palahniuk was trying to reach but there was a lot of purile, bathroom "humor" attempted. Many story threads are left dangling and the whole experience, other than the charming reader, was, for me, disappointing.
