Doomed

Rating
Welcome to Purgatory. Chuck Palahniuk style. After a botched Halloween ritual, Madison Spencer, the snarkiest dead girl in the universe, finds herself trapped in Purgatory, otherwise known as Earth. The upside: she is no longer subject to physical limitations (she can pass through doors and walls). The downside: well, she's still dead. Her first stop is her parents' luxurious apartment, where she encounters her grandmother ghost. For Madison, the encounter triggers memories of the awful summer she spent upstate. As she revisits the painful truth of what transpired over those months, her saga of eternal damnation takes on a new and sinister meaning. It turns out, Madison and her parents have always been key elements of Satan's master plan doomsday."

Reviews

Praise for DOOMED: "Palahniuk doesn't write for tourists. He writes for hard-core devotees drawn to the wild, angry imagination on display and the taboo-busting humor." --The New York Times "With his love of contemporary fairy tales that are gritty and dirty rather than pretty, Palahniuk is the likeliest inheritor of Vonnegut's place in American writing."--San Francisco Chronicle "Few authors have captured the pathologies of modern life quite like Palahniuk." --Rocky Mountain News "Like Edgar Allen Poe, Palahniuk is a bracingly toxic purveyor of dread and mounting horror. He makes nihilism fun." --Vanity Fair Praise for DOOMED: "Palahniuk doesn't write for tourists.

"Damaged"? "Delighted"? "Devilled"? "Doubted"? Simply "Dead"? Maddie is my new post-alive heroine."--"The Guardian""Those who aren't frightened by the lurid littering of gutter humor and oozing bodily fluids will find in "Doomed" a master satirist and culture critic at the height of his bold, anarchic powers."--"Nashville Scene""Palahniuk's fans will surely be pleased..."--Publishers Weekly
