Survivor: A Novel

Survivor: A Novel

"Better and more readable than Fight Club.

Brilliantly entertaining and disturbing. Full of creepy but potentially useful facts, Survivor tells the story of a member of the Creedish Church who is trying to figure out who's behind the mysterious deaths of his fellow estranged church members. A story that begins at the end and ends at the beginning, Survivor is essentially Rumspringa gone wrong in a way that only Chuck Palahniuk can do. Between the main characters' twisted reality, the people he encounters and, the relationships he forms along the way, Palahniuk's trademark endearing morbidity makes this book a darkly enjoyable and one of a kind read."

“A wild amphetamine ride through the vagaries of fame and the nature of belief.”?San Francisco Chronicle Tender Branson?last surviving member of the Creedish Death Cult?is dictating his life story into Flight 2039’s recorder. He is all alone in the airplane, which will crash shortly into the vast Australian outback. But before it does, he will unfold the tale of his journey from an obedient Creedish child to an ultra-buffed, steroid- and collagen-packed media messiah. Unpredictable and unforgettable, Survivor is Chuck Palahniuk at his deadpan peak: a mesmerizing, unnerving, and hilarious satire on the wages of fame and the bedrock lunacy of the modern world.
