'Are you there, Satan? It's me, Madison'
Meet Madison, whip-tongued daughter of a narcissistic film star and a billionaire, abandoned at a Swiss boarding school over Christmas while her parents are off adopting more orphans. Madison dies of a marijuana overdose and awakes to find herself in Hell, sharing her cell with a motley crew of young sinners that's almost too good to be true.
Welcome to the afterlife as only Palahniuk could imagine it - he makes eternal torment, well, simply divine.

True to Palahniuk form, Damned is gross in parts, scandalous in others and funny throughout * Time Out *
Gleefully riffing on Judy Blume's 1970 coming-of-age classic Are You There God? It's Me Margaret, Palahniuk's dead heroine must traverse the infernal landscape in search of Satan - and of her true self - as she tries to discover exactly how she died * Financial Times *
Vintage chuck - as dark as it gets * Dazed *
The vistas of his underworld are engrossing * Metro *

“Loved the book, not sure about the ending”
The main character is so well created by Chuck Palahniuk that it is on par with the clever invention of Bateman by Bret Easton Ellis. This is very much a comedy and had me laughing out loud. I really like the writing... More
