Independent on Sunday

«Like a noxious Douglas Coupland, Palahniuk charts new-felt and totally contemporary categories of despair»

Ali Smith, Guardian

«A nihilistic masterpiece»

NME

«Part Rosemary's Baby, part The Wicker Man... The shocks are shocking and the twists nice and taut»

Time Out

«A truly terrifying horror story with some interestingly radical underpinnings»

– This is about Misty who left her ambitions and life behind to marry Peter, and move with him to his home island, where he promised her she'd be a great artist. Now she's a middle aged, fat waitress, and her husband's in a coma. This is her coma diary; written for Peter should he ever wake up. She's miserable, and terribly annoyed that everyone keeps thinking she's destined to be a famous artist who will bring great riches to the island once more. She doesn't even paint anymore. Until one day, when painting is all she can do. The story is good. Really, it is. Palahniuk's stories always are, and he will always surprise you in the end. Things will never end up how you expected them to, and his distinct writing style is a pleasure to read. Some of his ideas are freakishly satisfying for the lovers of the strange and unsettling (involuntarily immortality!), and he keeps it all human enough to seem real.
Small tip though; give this book two readings! And let me just say; Chuck owns me.
