Publisher's Summary

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 is transformed from the beautiful center of attention to an invisible monster, so hideous that no one will acknowledge 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.

Fantastic

I know Chuck Palahniuk is not for everyone, but I love his strange dark humor and I always know I can pick up one of his books and get a story like none other. Invisible Monsters definitely delivers. Yes it has drugs yes it has violence and yes most of the characters you are not going to empathize with but isn’t that what we read Chuck Palahniuk for? I know his bleak view of human nature and unique characters are just part of why I keep coming back.

As for the Audio version of this book it was perfection! The dramatization was spot on. I would highly recommend this audio book especially if you are already a Palahuiuk fan.

I loved this!!

Maybe I'm sick & twisted, but I loved this book! The main character, who doesn't have a face and can't talk, is BRILLIANT! Obviously the narrator talks to tell the story, but as the character she speaks gibberish. Her nuances, accents, etc, make this a fabulous book to listen to. The story itself is hilarious, even though though it could be taken as tragic. Lots of twists and turns, but you have to pay attention because it jumps around a lot time-wise.

Give me a total thumbs up . . . FLASH!
