Summary:

'Are you there, Satan? It's me, Madison,' declares the whip-tongued thirteen-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. Madison shares her cell with a motley crew of young sinners that is almost too good to be true: a cheerleader, a jock, a nerd, and a punk rocker, united by fate to form the six-feet-under version of everyone's favorite detention movie. Madison and her pals trek across the Dandruff Desert and climb the treacherous Mountain of Toenail Clippings to confront Satan in his citadel. All the popcorn balls and wax lips that serve as the currency of Hell won't buy them off.

This is the afterlife as only Chuck Palahniuk could imagine it: a twisted inferno where The English Patient plays on endless repeat, roaming demons devour sinners limb by limb, and the damned interrupt your dinner from their sweltering call center to hard-sell you Hell. He makes eternal torment, well, simply divine.

'The story scoots along like any great adventure story, as she takes on Hitler and Catherine de Medici, and it's a delight seeing Madison find her place in life, even if it's in death.''Booklist

    yet another brilliant Novel by Chuck Palahniuk if you read fight club/survivor or Rant an oral bio of buster rant casey than you'll devour Damned as well as Doomed the sequel to Damned…

    Dr Abby meets Breakfast Club meets Dante's 7 levels of hell....I will say the author's descriptive nature of hell was slightly humorous.

    This book was all over the place. Big fan of Palahniuk but this was a disappointment. Read his other books like "survivor" or "choke."

  • Katie Collette

    Very entertaining story! The character development was great and I laughed out loud a lot.
