I am a huge Chuck P. fan. But this book was a bit difficult for me. I just couldn't get into it. It's about the "last survivor" of a cult, and the book is this last survivor telling his life story to an airplane blackbox. Going from, cult memeber to houseman, to overnight sensation and his fall from grace. Sounds like a good idea, but I just couldn't really get into it. In fact, I had to push myself to read it all the up to the last 2 chapters and then I just had to put it down. I couldn't make myself finish it. The writing was excellent, as Chuck P's always is. And the plot was good in theory, but in the end...I was kinda bored. Gasp, I know. But still, give it a try. You might like it.

    Great read

    This novel is close to the top with my list of favorites for Chuck Palahniuk. If you are a fan of his work, you will definitely see a great deal of the biting, clever, self-depricating brilliance in this piece of work.

    Interesting

    I thought this book was pretty good. It's really short and leaves a big cliffhanger at the end of every chapter. So far Chuck Palahniuk isn't as amazing as everyone says but then again i've only read this book and saw fight club (which I loved), I think i'll give him another shot. I'm thinking of buying Lullaby or Rant.

    A great book, but not Chuck's best.

    I liked this book a lot but if you want something amazing by Chuck, I recommend 'Invisible Monsters' or 'Choke'. They're my two favorites, and 'Survivor' is a close third.

    ummm

    this book was funny, but too weird for me. the dark comedy was one reason i kept reading. however the premise of the death cult to a media saviour did not work for me

    Fairly decent, however, not one of his best

    We can always count on Mr. Palahniuk to throw us into a surreal world, where nothing is what it seems, where biting sarcasm and chaos reigns. I actually enjoyed the last half of the novel more. Is it one of his better books? I'd have to say no, but for the avid Chuck fan, it's worth checking out.
