    Quite possibly the most fucked up piece of literature I ve ever read, this novel is a brilliantly executed train wreck from beginning to end.

    Check the shelf I put this on Now you re ready This book is insane There s something on practically every page that makes you say, What the % You ll keep reading anyway, though, and you ll love it The book s like a really hard core Swedish massage It hurts SOOOOO good The story is essentially about beauty who values it, what it means, how it can be good, and how it can be a horror Not only do the characters suffer FOR beauty, they suffer BECAUSE of beauty, and that s a powerful comment on current American society Palahniuk shows off masterful writing all the way through, allowing the reader to both like and...

    I m too old for this stuff Shocking doesn t do it for me alone, and he works SO VERY HARD at being vulgar and violent and crass Don t get me wrong those are three things that can make for a great story Bu...

    I have a theory about Chuck Palahniuk books.If somebody is starting to read Chuck Palahniuk for the first timethe first book they read of his will always be their favorite I have found that to be the case with many people I really enjoyed Invisible Monsters and it was the first Chuck Palahniuk book I read It was such a new approach to writing that I had never seen before, and I found myself really engrossed and moved by the now usual Palahniuk twisty ending It was such a shocking book to me that I loved every page of it Of course, since, I have read Chuck Palahniuk books that I could consider to be better, but...

    Chuck Palahnuik s Invisible Monsters has many similarities to Fight Club and clear influences from Sartre and John Barth It s disjointed, fragmented, almost incomplete, and yet, he raises complex questions and makes brilliant observations I don t th...

    Si tuviera que decir de qu trata Monstruos invisibles, dir a que es un relato rayano a lo absurdo, un viaje en compa a de individuos que te espantar an si te los cruzaras por la calle Monstruos invisibles es una critica al estereotipo belleza y al modo de pensar Trata que nos desprendamos de cualquier modelo de pensamiento y de creencia Nos prueba que somos falsos, un producto de miles de rostros que desean vernos caer Lo que queremos es lo...

    Chuck Palahniuk is the hugely popular author of modern, edgy books like Fight Club also a movie with Brad Pitt go ahead, act surprised and Choke For this reason I did not expect to like Invisible Monsters, originally published in 1999.The story is told by a nameless narrator a young woman who used to be beautiful After a series of bizarre, haunting events involving a freeway, birds and a few other things those days are gone forever Her face disfigured, her voice gone, the narrator is invisible And a monster in the eyes of most Desperate for someone to save her, the narrator meets Brandy Alexander at just the right time Brandy embodies the life that the narrator used to have except for an important operation that Brandy still needs to have.Riding off with Brandy, the narrator starts fresh Life is a story If you don t like the story you have, make up a new one As the lives Brandy offers up as truth continue to change and the lies threaten to fall apart, it becomes clear that no matter where you run eventually you have to face ...

    The main character in this book is nameless, and disfigured She was once a beautiful model, and now feels invisible She hides under a veil after being called a monster When she lost her face she saw the true colors of everyone in her life Her fiance leaves, and her best friend constantly steals her clothes while she s in the hospital In speech therapy our main character meets Brandy Alexander, and the story unfolds.This is probably my least favorite book so far by Palahniuk, but it was still enjoyable I wish I hadn t read the synopsis of this book, and just went into it knowing nothing at all Another problem is my expectations When I heard this was Palahniuk s first book he ever tried to have published, and it got rejected as too disturbing I thought this was just what I was looking for at the moment Well, I came to the conclusion that either other people get disturbed and or offended too easily, or I am truly becoming incapable of being shocked So either way this is not the book s faultSome of the twists in this book I saw coming within the first few pages I will admit that there were a few that got me, but most were predictable Again, had I not read the synopsis maybe I would have had a completely different opinion, but I have no way or knowing that for sure So that s what I didn t like, but here is what I did like Invisible Monsters is a book that s not about the plot It s really about the cha...

    Chuck Palahniuk s ego is so bloated that he thinks he can write a story from a woman s perspective and still refuse to change his typical male chauvinistic smug self indulgent writing style Please I can imagine him sitting at his computer, typing away, stopping only to jack off at his own drivel.
