Publisher's Summary

Madison Spencer, the liveliest, snarkiest dead girl in the universe, continues the adventures in the afterlife begun in Damned. Having somewhat reluctantly escaped from hell, she now wanders the purgatory that is Earth as a ghostly spirit, seeking her do-gooding celebrity parents, fighting the malign control of Satan, recounting the disgracefully funny encounter with her grandfather in a fetid highway rest stop in upstate New York when she - oh, never mind - and climaxing in a rendezvous with destiny on the new, totally plastic continent in the Pacific called, not at all accidentally, Madlantis.
Dante Alighieri, watch your back. Chuck Palahniuk is gaining on you.

So Disappointing

Doomed is the sequel to Damned, the continued story of Madison.

This book was SO disappointing. I have loved Chuck Palahnuik's past works. From Fight Climb to Haunted, Choke, and Invisible Monsters, I have really treasured his books.

Doomed has SOME of the things that I love about Chuck, like the "ticks" he puts in his stories, his great writing rhythm, and his very dark humor.

What this story was missing was, well, an actual story. As the story begins, I was super excited to see what kind of trouble Madison was going to get into to, and then, nothing happened. You are introduced to a couple of characters that seems to have the capacity to drive the story forward along with Madison and then nothing happened with them either. There was very little interaction with them. The entire story goes back into Madison's past and she whines and bitches about everything that happened to her and how misunderstood she was.

It was bad, really bad.

I enjoyed the narrator, she was fun to listen to.

Sadly, I do not recommend this book.

Too many mispronounced words

I hate to nitpick. I hate being that guy. But, who edits/ directs these things? Words are important. Important enough to me, anyway, to fork over money to you month after month. How can you let the dozens of mispronounced words pass in this thing? It is not the fault of the reader. Someone should have caught the mistakes and fixed them. Very distracting to asshats such as myself.
