Review of Damned by Chuck Palahniuk

I'd never read Palahniuk before because I had been given the impression that his books were gimmicky and shallow.

Boy was I was wrong.

Gimmicky and shallow would be high praise for this pandering and meandering garbage. The satire is so trite that it makes Glenn Beck seem like a purveyor of subtle social commentary. And the book has the most ineptly handled final third and resolution that I have ever had the misfortune to read.

About 80 pages in I was ready to cut my losses and give up but I stupidly persisted. I want to invent a time machine and so I can go back and tell myself not to read this book.
