'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.

MEDIA REVIEWS
The Lovely Bones meets The Shawshank Redemption via Judy Blume. Expect to be appalled * Vogue *
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 *

“Devilishly dastardly”

So...this was strange. Which is great, as that's what I was expecting but still...there was one passage in particular that I will forever be trying to expunge from my memory. If you have read it, you'll... More

“Potentially brilliant, but a little harrowing.”

I find this book very hard to categorise. In a number of ways it is incredibly funny, in others it is very strange to the point of being almost whimsical, in other ways it is very harrowing and very dark. It makes it... More

“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
