After finally reading the much-talked-about Fight Club, with which I was disappointed, I swore I’d never read another Chuck Palahniuk book. I’m glad I didn’t keep that promise. Damned is actually, well, damned good! This novel follows the exploits of 13-year-old Madison Spencer’s trip to hell after a Marijuana overdose, and all she encounters in that fiery region. The story is a Breakfast Club of sorts, as Maddy (the chubby outcast) meets Babette (the cheerleader,) Patterson (the jock,) Leonard (the nerd,) and Archer (the punk.) The story, told in first-person and alternating flashbacks to Maddy’s life with her current adventure, is satire at it’s best. At times funny, touching, and caustic, it’s a hell of a good read.
