?Are you there, Satan? It's me, Madison, ? declares the whip-tongued thirteen-year-old narrator of Damned, Chuck Palahniuk's subversive new work of fiction. The daughter of a narcissistic film star and a billionaire, Madison is abandoned at her Swiss boarding school over Christmas, while her parents are off touting their new projects and adopting more orphans. She dies over the holiday of a marijuana overdose?and the next thing she knows, she's in Hell. Madison shares her cell with a motley crew of young sinners that is almost too good to be true: a cheerleader, a jock, a nerd, and a punk rocker, united by fate to form the six-feet-under version of everyone's favorite detention movie. Madison and her pals trek across the Dandruff Desert and climb the treacherous Mountain of Toenail Clippings to confront Satan in his citadel. All the popcorn balls and wax lips that serve as the currency of Hell won't buy them off. This is the afterlife as only Chuck Palahniuk could imagine it: a twisted inferno where The English Patient plays on endless repeat, roaming demons devour sinners limb by limb, and the damned interrupt your dinner from their sweltering call center to hard-sell you Hell. He makes eternal torment, well, simply divine.

I normally love this author, but this book seemed so pointless. I finished the audio book, but I really don't know why. It seemed like he was trying to be edgy, but it just never evolved into anything meaningful. I was pretty disappointed. I've come to expect better writing from him.

This audiobook made me wish that I had rented a book version of it, more than once.

First, I would have finished it a hell of a lot faster.

Second, I was terrified that someone would overhear some of the more... graphic scenes.

This is definitely not something for anyone with a squeamish stomach or sensitive nerves. But it is, (pun intended) a hell of a novel.
