Invisible Monsters: A Novel
Invisible Monsters: A Novel | Chuck Palahniuk
46 posts | 227 read | 55 to read
Love, betrayal, petty larceny, and high fashion fuel this deliciously comic novel from the author of Fight Club. She's a fashion model who has everything: a boyfriend, a career, a loyal best friend. But when a sudden freeway "accident" leaves her disfigured and incapable of speech, she goes from being the beautiful center of attention to being an invisible monster, so hideous that no one will acknowledge that she exists. Enter Brandy Alexander, Queen Supreme, one operation away from becoming a real woman, who will teach her that reinventing yourself means erasing your past and making up something better. And that salvation hides in the last places you'll ever want to look.

I very much enjoyed this book. So many twists and turns, back and forths. Some I saw coming, some were surprises. A tough one to put down, as it was quite a ride and completely satisfied with how it played out.

I read five other Palahniuk novels years ago and consider myself a fan. Maybe I'm just getting too old for shocking, in-your-face, escapades such as this. It‘s full of the typical Palahniuk grossness, strangeness, absurdity, bawdiness, etc., etc. This book isn't for the young or faint of heart. Overall, it'll give this an OK rating because I do like the author's writing style and humor. I just wish it was a bit less cringeworthy at times.

Sometimes I choose an audiobook because of the author and other times because of the narrator. Anna Fields is a great narrator. Chuck is a great writer. Invisible Monsters is typical Palahniuk; it starts out a bit confusing, and by the time you figure out what‘s going on, the novel spirals out of control on its way to a wild finish. While it‘s not his best, it‘s still good. Overall rating: 4.01 stars

StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego This was my first Palaniuk. So many crazy plot twists, so entertaining. 11mo
Jason7 Yes. There‘s a lot going on in this one, especially by the end. 11mo
BookishMarginalia I‘m interested in the .01 stars... 11mo
Jason7 A few people have asked about that. Its a ranking system I use for book reviews. I‘ve been using it for awhile. 11mo
Jason7 I use it for audiobooks. It‘s a combination of various factors, including the story and the narrator‘s performance 11mo

Reggie Omg, this book and Haunted are my favorites of his and I just bought his new one. All of them have been outrageous but he really has some important things to say. The twist(s) in this one floored me. 2y
vivastory @Reggie I think this will be my next Palahniuk, even though I just bought his new one. If you have not read it, I can't recommend Rant highly enough. I think it's his most underrated book 2y
vivastory @Reggie Also, I take a bit of pride that I was present at the KC reading of Guts that he mentions in the back of Haunted 😬😂 2y
Addison_Reads @Reggie This book and Diary are my top two by him, but I really do like almost all his books. @vivastory I loved Rant when I read it, and I'm very jealous you were there for Guts. That's awesome. 2y

Yep, the whole time I was was listening to the tagged audiobook. The timeline was all over the place and everybody kept changing their name and I couldn‘t even try to keep up with who was sleeping with who. But overall, I enjoyed this. You might want to have some Dramamine on hand to deal with all the twists and turns😂

A book that has surprised me the most would have to be Invisible Monsters. It was my first Palahniuk book, and I had never read a book with SO MANY mind blowing plot twists. Not the most realistic story, but certainly an entertaining one.

Sort of blown away. So many twists and turns. Really I just don't know what to say, this was such a wild read. Truly. Of course in a good way. But damn, it was kind of traumatizing. Also her name is Shannon and she has a gay brother. Um, hi. That's a weird coincidence.

But if you tell folks you're a college student, folks are so impressed. You can be a student in anything and not have to know anything. Just say toxicology or marine biokinesis, and the person you're talking to will change the subject to himself. If this doesn't work, mention the neural synapses of embryonic pigeons.

This book is a fantastic train wreck of a story. Weird and unflinchingly self absorbed. Every few chapters revealing a new piece to the puzzle. Each piece of the puzzle more bizarre than the last. You'll get to the end thinking what did I just read! But it will sure entertain along the way.

If you want a mind-blowing book in a literal meaning. Invisible Monsters is your book. Everything you didn't expect, anything you didn't know will happen happens. Even normal parts, turn out to be not normal somehow. Chuck kept on shocking me until the last page of this book.Definitely my fav by him
