Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Tender Branson — last surviving member of the so-called "Creedish Death Cult" — is dictating his incredible life story into the flight recorder of Flight 2039, cruising on autopilot at 39,000 feet somewhere over the Pacific Ocean. He is all alone in the plane, which will shortly reach and crash into the vast Australian outback. Before it does, he will unfold the tale of his journey from an obedient Creedish child and humble domestic servant to an ultra-buffed, steroid- and collagen-packed media messiah, author of a best-selling autobiography, , and the even better selling (The Prayer to Delay Orgasm, The Prayer to Prevent Hair Loss, The Prayer to Silence Car Alarms). He'll even share his insight that "the only difference between suicide and martyrdom is press coverage," and deny responsibility for the Tender Branson Sensitive Materials Landfill — a 20,000-acre repository for the nation's outdated pornography. Among other matters both bizarre and trenchant. Not since Kurt Vonnegut's and Jerzy Kosinski's has there been as black and telling a satire on the wages of fame and the bedrock lunacy of the modern world. Survivor is Chuck Palahniuk at his deadpan peak, and it marks him as a blazing talent for the new millennium.

Synopsis:

From the author of the underground sensation , a mesmerizing, unnerving, and hilarious vision of cult and post-cult life.

Clark, October 1, 2007 (view all comments by Clark)
This book is easily one of the best novels I have ever read. Survivor is just as good as Fight Club, both are equally entertaining. Palahniuk paints vivid characters and settings with his words, you do not have to struggle to imagine who or what he incorporates into his books. This book takes aim with religious fanatics and the obsession over the apocalypse. Chuck Palahniuk offers refreshing and new ways of looking at the world, and Survivor definately does not disappoint. I do not want to give away details of the book, because I cannot do it justice. Try this book, sit back and relax as you enjoy what is going on in the mind of this talented writer.
