Reviews

In his "reintroduction," Palahniuk notes that he wanted his 1999 original paperback to have the feel of a choose-your-own-adventure rather than being read linearly. In this remix, which includes new material, listeners are directed to skip from CD to CD to follow the madcap adventures of Shannon McFarland, a fashion model disfigured by a gunshot to the face, and Brandy Alexander, an exotic transsexual who takes Shannon under her wing and out on the road. Narrators Paul Michael Garcia and the late Anna Field (she narrated the original edition) offer great performances of this fun, chaotic tale. VERDICT Jumping between discs is not something most listeners will enjoy, so either ignore the advice or stick with print. ["A must read for fans of the author or the original version of the book. Fans of speculative fiction or the grotesque will also enjoy the ride," read the review of the Norton hc, LJ 5/15/12.-Ed.]-Beth Farrell, Cleveland-Marshall Coll. of Law Lib., Cleveland State Univ.

"Maybe our generation has found its Don Delillo" * Bret Easton Ellis * "This is a wild ride of a novel" * Booklist * "A clever, comical pell-mell through gender politics and stereotyped expectations, to explore the extremes of will-power, and of living as one wishes" -- John Lloyd * thebookbag.co.uk * "Readers can either disregard the author and read it in the conventional way or follow his instructions and jump to the chapter you are told. The thrill of defiance in the former almost matches the same show-like excitement of the latter - both are exhilarating and rewarding options" -- Antonia Charlesworth * Big Issue * "Twelve years on, Palahniuk revisits this work - mashing up its linear narrative to recreate the pre-Internet thrill of flicking through Vogue or the Sears catalogue" -- Emma Hagestadt * Independent *
