I was on a mission to find books with a twisted plot.
And holy, moly did I find a twisted plot with Chuck Palahniuk’s Invisible Monsters.
It was the first book I happened to find at my local used book store, and, $%^&& I was so turned in circles by the time I finished the book, I though, “I need to read that thing again to make sure I read it correctly.”
Twisted people – yep. Twisted story line – yep. If you take offense to language or anything off the beaten path, this book may not be for you. I, however, don’t get offended too easily so I didn’t have a problem with this book.
I give this book 5 stars for making my head spin. For sure.
About Invisible Monsters
Love, betrayal, petty larceny, and high fashion fuel this deliciously comic novel from the author of Fight Club.
She’s a fashion model who has everything: a boyfriend, a career, a loyal best friend. But when a sudden freeway “accident” leaves her disfigured and incapable of speech, she goes from being the beautiful center of attention to being an invisible monster, so hideous that no one will acknowledge that she exists. Enter Brandy Alexander, Queen Supreme, one operation away from becoming a real woman, who will teach her that reinventing yourself means erasing your past and making up something better. And that salvation hides in the last places you’ll ever want to look.
Hmmmm…what is the next book on my Twisted Plot list? Shutter Island? Likeness?
