Reviews

A quick, horrifying descent into madness and murder, gorgeous in its psychotic build-up and over-the-top execution.--Jason Sheehan
A send-up of the many absurdities in our society.--Mackenzie Dawson
A dystopian nightmare that takes all the fractures of our modern society and escalates them to a perverted climax.
A novel made out of the times we're living in.--Graeme McMillan
Palahniuk toys with our cultural dividing lines.... The result is a novel that straddles both the horrific and the absurd, kind of like present-day America.--Peter Rugh
A must-read.--Gavin Sheehan
[Palahniuk] joins Sinclair Lewis and George Orwell in Dystopia.... There are traces of noir, magical realism, sf, and horror. It's all there, with the power to amuse, astound, and provoke.
Palahniuk takes the United States' divided politics to an extreme conclusion and proves along the way that his gift for social satire has only sharpened with time.
Visionary and fearless... perhaps [Palahniuk's] darkest, most biting satire to date.... [R]azor-sharp insights and boundless imagination are matched only by his ability to make even the most stomach-churning scenes somehow vividly entertaining.... [E]qual parts Jonathan Swift and Tyler Durden.
