"A story so eccentric and complex that you begin to understand why Palahniuk's literature is a breed all its own." --USA Today "Mr. Palahniuk further refines his ability to create parables that are as substantial as they are off-the-wall." --The New York Times "That most rambunctious of American novelists, Chuck Palahniuk, is at it again. . . . There's so much comic energy, so much manic imagination, so much satirical fire on display." --Newsday "Dark riffing on modernity is the reason people read Palahniuk. His books are not so much novels as jagged fables, cautionary tales about the creeping peril represented by almost everything." --Time "Genius-on-sixteen-different-levels . . . constantly surprising, disturbingly funny . . . Genuinely subversive." --BookForum "Among sick puppies, Palahniuk is the top dog. . . . A unique talent." --People "More twisted than a sack of pretzels and edgier than an octagon, Chuck Palahniuk has pumped out another memorable read. . . This is his best yet." --Playboy "Few writers this side of Kurt Vonnegut can summon up the intensity and precision to control such a blackly humorous situation. . . . Palahniuk is proving to be an accessible and ambitious writer of fables from the culture wars." --St. Petersburg Times "Palahniuk conjures grief, confusion, mystery and fear from the unlikeliest sources . . . [and] teases amusement form the darkest corners of our culture." --The Sunday Oregonian "By turns disturbing, creepy, sweet, sad, horrible and exquisite. . . . A harrowing and hilarious glimpse into the future of civilization." --Minneapolis Star-Tribune "[Palahniuk] knows how to spin whacked-out stories particular to our times. . . . Employs a playfully perverse wit and a good eye for repellent details." --The Seattle Times "Twisted and nihilistic . . . The novel packs a dark comic wallop." --Daily News "A darkly twisted yarn. . . Palahniuk has succeeded in crafting a story that is taut and compelling, insightful and scathing, deeply disturbing and deeply disturbed." --CNN.com "Deliriously rich in ideas and entertaining in its stream-of-consciousness riffing." --Book "Outrageous, darkly comic fun."--Kirkus Reviews (starred) "This is vintage Palahniuk: weird, creepy, twisted, upsetting, and ultimately a great read."--Library Journal
