Doomed Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
Welcome to Purgatory. Chuck Palahniuk style.
After a botched Halloween ritual, Madison Spencer, the snarkiest dead girl in the universe, finds herself trapped in Purgatory, otherwise known as Earth. The upside: She is no longer subject to physical limitations (she can pass through doors and walls). The downside: Well, she’s still dead.
Her first stop is her parents’ luxurious apartment, where she runs into her grandmother’s ghost. For Madison, the encounter triggers memories of the awful summer she spent upstate. As she revisits the painful truth of what transpired over those months, her saga of eternal damnation takes on a new and sinister meaning. And as it turns out, Madison and her parents have always been key elements of Satan’s master plan — Doomsday.

The main character isn't that likable and even for a Palahniuk story it seems really unrealistic she would know as many big words as she does. Here's where I might sound dumb but he uses way too many big words in these two stories, it borders on pretentious. He also overly describes sometimes and all I wanted was for him to get on with the action instead of word vomiting to set the scene.
The comedy didn't do much for me and while there's some wild scenes in here I just didn't care all that much about what happened but I wanted to keep reading just to see what happens. He was my favorite writer for a while and I'll always appreciate some of his past work but these two stories make me feel like he either tried too hard or not enough if that makes sense. I didn't get invested much in this story and while the premise is interesting, there's times where it seems like he wrote himself into a corner and didn't know what to do next with the whole thing.
Honestly if I could go back i would've avoided reading this and Damned and bought something else. I don't enjoy writing reviews like this but I feel like someone similar to me with the criticism will read this review and avoid spending their money and time of day with these two books. I hate to say it but their total misses and it doesn't surprise me he has yet to release a third entry.
In classic Palahniuk style, the book opens with a bang and had me hooked right away. I’ll spare you the plot details because quite frankly it would be rude of me to spoil the fun. Nothing in this novel is what it seems and the twists and turns come rapid-fire. I planned on reading a few chapters before bed one night and ended up devouring the book in one sitting. It’s full of action and packed with deftly created characters that both intrigued me and rubbed me the wrong way. Everyone is flawed, but everyone is interesting. Nobody comes out on the other side unscathed.
So, sit down, buckle up, and get ready for a wild ride. The book is crazy in every way, but it’s a ton of fun.
Definitely need to read Damned first to get the two stories to tie together. A lot of Madison's history is explained and I enjoyed how Chuck connected "the dots" from the first story to this one.
