This book had me from start to finish.
I. Will. Finish. This. Book.
This year. 🤞🏻
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
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.
@cobwebmoth #surprisedgiveaway Congrats on your followers, and thanks for the generous giveaway!
I remember this book's ending blowing my mind. I wonder what I would think of it reading it as an adult.
Side note: Until I saw the posts for today I had no clue those were the actual lyrics for this song lol. I could never understand what he was singing. 😆
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.
"No matter how careful you are. There's going to be the sense you missed something, the collapsed feeling under your skin that you didn't experience it all. there's that fallen heart feeling that you rushed right through the moments where you should've been paying attention"
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.
So my good friend who is a huge Chuck P fan is making me read this one. I'm 3 chapters in and so far liking it better than Fight Club.

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
