    Rounding up from a 3.5 On the one hand, it's nice to have Chuck back and doing fiction. Not only that, he's doing fiction that doesn't rely on a gimmick like the last.... decade or so of his output. No disrespect to some of those books, but also some of them were garbage. On the ...

    I?m pleased to report a few months ahead of the scheduled publication date that this is classic Chuck; back with enough here to shock, offend and make us laugh all the same. The book follows a plot to completely upend the U.S. government and re-invent the nation into some Libertarian...

    Grilled peacock tongues, sweet smelling Shasta earplugs, brown recluse mush dick, buckets of spit, scary unbridled vajayjays, and the start of grouse hunting season. Palahniuk is a strange cat. I dig his work, but he seems to be a wee hit or miss. He can be absolutely brilliant and ...

    After first reading Fight Club in 1998 Chuck P has been one of my favorite authors. I've read all of his first eight books at least twice and most of them three or four times. Unfortunately he has been hit or miss since those, and this one is undoubtedly a miss. It probably would have ...

    I?ve not read much of Palahniuk?s work. In fact, I?ve only read Fight Club. So, when I got the chance to get my hands on an ARC of his new book, I didn?t hesitate. He?s a writer I?ve always wanted to explore more. But, man, what a drag this was. I really, REALLY enjoy t...

    50 pages into this book, I was thinking, "Ah, Christ. So Mr. Palahniuk is weighing in on American politics too? Is fucking EVERYONE an expert now?" But then I read some more, and what he's doing is way more interesting. What I see happening on both sides of the real-world politi...

    I've been a big Chuck P fan for quite some time now. I even caught him live at the Triple Rock for the "Snuff" tour. His last few books haven't grabbed me like "Rant," "Lullaby" or "Survivor" did. "Adjustment Day" is different. An interesting take on dystopia, fueled by the concept tha...

    Palahniuk's best book since Lullaby. While the narrative is a bit jumbled, the paranoid libertarian fantasy world in the story is a brilliant extrapolation of today's political environment, and could only have been written by the author of Fight Club. Darkly funny and poignant. ...

    ?If you can slash a tire, you can harvest an ear.? On a large scale the premise is so intriguing, but in execution, it?s a disorganized mess. With no distinct chapters, and a stupid number of characters (none of whom I cared lived, died, lost an ear, whatever), it was easy to ...

    Adjustment Day feels like the book Chuck Palahniuk's entire career has been leading up to. This novel is very much of the moment, a scathing satire of current American society, our modern climate brought to the extreme and turned on its head. While it is filled with the types of the...

    1984 meets The Handmaid's Tale meets Fight Club. Classic Chuck is back. With a vengeance. ...

    ? ? ? I am a big fan of Palahniuk's earlier works (Invisible Monsters, Fight Club, Lullaby) and had the opportunity to meet him at a book signing for this release. I had high expectations going into this book, and while I did like it, there were several parts of it that just di...

    Maybe I'm just getting older, but it sure feels like Palahniuk gets worse and worse. I can't tell if this is supposed to be self-parody of its own failure to work as any sort of effective social satire. I think he's trying to outdo himself for being gross, offensive, and bizarre, but h...

    Adjustment Day was a big disappointment. I never really got the plot, there was just too many subplots and characters. I also didn?t understand where he referenced his own works ?Fight Club? and even his own name in comparison of other books like Dead Poets Society, Gone with the...

    This book is over-the-top, unstructured, outrageous, graphic, vulgar, offensive, and pure Chuck Palahniuk. If you have read his books, then you know what to expect and this book has it in spades. I really want to give this Four Stars, but I felt that the choppy and all-over-the-place n...

    Chuck?s best writing days are behind him! His last decent book was Snuff! 10 years ago ...

    This is the first Palahniuk book I read (he's been on my wish list for years), so I can't compare it to the others. But I enjoyed it. The Adjustment Day of the title is a day of revolution in which the masses rise up against authority figures of all sorts: politicians, media, and acade...

    I really wanted to like this latest offering of Palahniuk's as I used to be a huge fan. I liked parts of this work, like the list of the least wanted that is posted on line, and if you receive enough votes your life is in jeopardy. Most of the top vote receivers seemed to be politician...

    Unless I missed something, Palahniuk doesn?t explain what happens to the non-white/non-black/non-gay until about 250 pages in. For some reason that was ALL I could think about until it was explained. I?m glad it did eventually come out but I would have enjoyed the book more had we ...

    Let me very honest and tell you that I wasn?t all that excited when I heard of the new Palahniuk being released. I haven?t enjoyed his last couple of books and yet I was in a strange way looking forward to reading this one. At the same time, Palahniuk is not every reader?s cup...

    After first reading Fight Club in 1998 Chuck P has been one of my favorite authors. I've read all of his first eight books at least twice and most of them three or four times. Unfortunately he has been hit or miss since those, and this one is undoubtedly a miss. It probably would have ...

    I?ve not read much of Palahniuk?s work. In fact, I?ve only read Fight Club. So, when I got the chance to get my hands on an ARC of his new book, I didn?t hesitate. He?s a writer I?ve always wanted to explore more. But, man, what a drag this was. I really, REALLY enjoy t...

    50 pages into this book, I was thinking, "Ah, Christ. So Mr. Palahniuk is weighing in on American politics too? Is fucking EVERYONE an expert now?" But then I read some more, and what he's doing is way more interesting. What I see happening on both sides of the real-world politi...

    I've been a big Chuck P fan for quite some time now. I even caught him live at the Triple Rock for the "Snuff" tour. His last few books haven't grabbed me like "Rant," "Lullaby" or "Survivor" did. "Adjustment Day" is different. An interesting take on dystopia, fueled by the concept tha...

    Invisible Monsters is my favorite Chuck Palahniuk book. I feel as though listing your favorite Chuck P book is the proper way to start a review of one of his other works, so people can understand the lens through which you?re viewing it. Adjustment Day is the perfect rebuttal to ...

    Palahniuk's best book since Lullaby. While the narrative is a bit jumbled, the paranoid libertarian fantasy world in the story is a brilliant extrapolation of today's political environment, and could only have been written by the author of Fight Club. Darkly funny and poignant. ...

    ?If you can slash a tire, you can harvest an ear.? On a large scale the premise is so intriguing, but in execution, it?s a disorganized mess. With no distinct chapters, and a stupid number of characters (none of whom I cared lived, died, lost an ear, whatever), it was easy to ...

    Adjustment Day feels like the book Chuck Palahniuk's entire career has been leading up to. This novel is very much of the moment, a scathing satire of current American society, our modern climate brought to the extreme and turned on its head. While it is filled with the types of the...

    1984 meets The Handmaid's Tale meets Fight Club. Classic Chuck is back. With a vengeance. ...

    ? ? ? I am a big fan of Palahniuk's earlier works (Invisible Monsters, Fight Club, Lullaby) and had the opportunity to meet him at a book signing for this release. I had high expectations going into this book, and while I did like it, there were several parts of it that just di...

    Maybe I'm just getting older, but it sure feels like Palahniuk gets worse and worse. I can't tell if this is supposed to be self-parody of its own failure to work as any sort of effective social satire. I think he's trying to outdo himself for being gross, offensive, and bizarre, but h...

    Adjustment Day was a big disappointment. I never really got the plot, there was just too many subplots and characters. I also didn?t understand where he referenced his own works ?Fight Club? and even his own name in comparison of other books like Dead Poets Society, Gone with the...

    This book is over-the-top, unstructured, outrageous, graphic, vulgar, offensive, and pure Chuck Palahniuk. If you have read his books, then you know what to expect and this book has it in spades. I really want to give this Four Stars, but I felt that the choppy and all-over-the-place n...

    Chuck?s best writing days are behind him! His last decent book was Snuff! 10 years ago ...

    This is the first Palahniuk book I read (he's been on my wish list for years), so I can't compare it to the others. But I enjoyed it. The Adjustment Day of the title is a day of revolution in which the masses rise up against authority figures of all sorts: politicians, media, and acade...

    I really wanted to like this latest offering of Palahniuk's as I used to be a huge fan. I liked parts of this work, like the list of the least wanted that is posted on line, and if you receive enough votes your life is in jeopardy. Most of the top vote receivers seemed to be politician...

    Unless I missed something, Palahniuk doesn?t explain what happens to the non-white/non-black/non-gay until about 250 pages in. For some reason that was ALL I could think about until it was explained. I?m glad it did eventually come out but I would have enjoyed the book more had we ...

    Let me very honest and tell you that I wasn?t all that excited when I heard of the new Palahniuk being released. I haven?t enjoyed his last couple of books and yet I was in a strange way looking forward to reading this one. At the same time, Palahniuk is not every reader?s cup...

    Adjustment Day is like the idiot child of Fight Club. It is a bigger, stupider, shallower imitation for the Internet age. That might seem unfairly harsh, but is impossible to avoid comparing Adjustment Day to Fight Club. Palahniuk does it himself in book, when he outright asserts th...

    Adjustment Day was Fight Club, but worse. Or more precisely, it was Fight Club, modernized and made ridiculous. I'm still trying to work out how I feel about this book. It was good, absolutely. I devoured it. It made itself easy to devour. But I've seen these ideas before. I've seen th...

    Adjustment Day wants to be a commentary on modern society, the influence of literature and belief, gender and race politics, and the nature of power and government. However, it fails to fully elucidate on any of its points, and the ideas presented are often half-baked. A bigoted new wo...

    The style and substance of this book are unquestionably the work of Chuck Palahniuk, but the delivery isn't quite there. In this sardonic critic of identity politics, the author imagines a grim America divided along arbitrary lines of race and sexuality. Although intriguing, it didn't ...

    I always think I know what I am getting myself into when I set out to read about book by Chuck Palahniuk. I suppose it is true that when I read the description of an upcoming release on Amazon, I set expectations. Often, I have read enough of the author to know where they will take the...

    Too many characters, too much heavy handed satire for Satire?s sake. I kept reading hoping for some sort of redeeming story line, but it never appeared. ...

    There's is nothing that compares to reading a Chuck Palahniuk novel. His perspective, his way of seeing the world, or carrying a concept through to its conclusion is unique and disturbing and worth reading. ...

    After first reading Fight Club in 1998 Chuck P has been one of my favorite authors. I've read all of his first eight books at least twice and most of them three or four times. Unfortunately he has been hit or miss since those, and this one is undoubtedly a miss. It probably would have ...

    I've been a big Chuck P fan for quite some time now. I even caught him live at the Triple Rock for the "Snuff" tour. His last few books haven't grabbed me like "Rant," "Lullaby" or "Survivor" did. "Adjustment Day" is different. An interesting take on dystopia, fueled by the concept tha...

    Adjustment Day feels like the book Chuck Palahniuk's entire career has been leading up to. This novel is very much of the moment, a scathing satire of current American society, our modern climate brought to the extreme and turned on its head. While it is filled with the types of the...

    Maybe I'm just getting older, but it sure feels like Palahniuk gets worse and worse. I can't tell if this is supposed to be self-parody of its own failure to work as any sort of effective social satire. I think he's trying to outdo himself for being gross, offensive, and bizarre, but h...

    Adjustment Day was a big disappointment. I never really got the plot, there was just too many subplots and characters. I also didn?t understand where he referenced his own works ?Fight Club? and even his own name in comparison of other books like Dead Poets Society, Gone with the...

    This book is over-the-top, unstructured, outrageous, graphic, vulgar, offensive, and pure Chuck Palahniuk. If you have read his books, then you know what to expect and this book has it in spades. I really want to give this Four Stars, but I felt that the choppy and all-over-the-place n...

    I really wanted to like this latest offering of Palahniuk's as I used to be a huge fan. I liked parts of this work, like the list of the least wanted that is posted on line, and if you receive enough votes your life is in jeopardy. Most of the top vote receivers seemed to be politician...

    Unless I missed something, Palahniuk doesn?t explain what happens to the non-white/non-black/non-gay until about 250 pages in. For some reason that was ALL I could think about until it was explained. I?m glad it did eventually come out but I would have enjoyed the book more had we ...

    Let me very honest and tell you that I wasn?t all that excited when I heard of the new Palahniuk being released. I haven?t enjoyed his last couple of books and yet I was in a strange way looking forward to reading this one. At the same time, Palahniuk is not every reader?s cup...

    Adjustment Day was Fight Club, but worse. Or more precisely, it was Fight Club, modernized and made ridiculous. I'm still trying to work out how I feel about this book. It was good, absolutely. I devoured it. It made itself easy to devour. But I've seen these ideas before. I've seen th...

    Adjustment Day wants to be a commentary on modern society, the influence of literature and belief, gender and race politics, and the nature of power and government. However, it fails to fully elucidate on any of its points, and the ideas presented are often half-baked. A bigoted new wo...

    The style and substance of this book are unquestionably the work of Chuck Palahniuk, but the delivery isn't quite there. In this sardonic critic of identity politics, the author imagines a grim America divided along arbitrary lines of race and sexuality. Although intriguing, it didn't ...

    After first reading Fight Club in 1998 Chuck P has been one of my favorite authors. I've read all of his first eight books at least twice and most of them three or four times. Unfortunately he has been hit or miss since those, and this one is undoubtedly a miss. It probably would have ...

    I?ve not read much of Palahniuk?s work. In fact, I?ve only read Fight Club. So, when I got the chance to get my hands on an ARC of his new book, I didn?t hesitate. He?s a writer I?ve always wanted to explore more. But, man, what a drag this was. I really, REALLY enjoy t...

    I've been a big Chuck P fan for quite some time now. I even caught him live at the Triple Rock for the "Snuff" tour. His last few books haven't grabbed me like "Rant," "Lullaby" or "Survivor" did. "Adjustment Day" is different. An interesting take on dystopia, fueled by the concept tha...

    Invisible Monsters is my favorite Chuck Palahniuk book. I feel as though listing your favorite Chuck P book is the proper way to start a review of one of his other works, so people can understand the lens through which you?re viewing it. Adjustment Day is the perfect rebuttal to ...

    Palahniuk's best book since Lullaby. While the narrative is a bit jumbled, the paranoid libertarian fantasy world in the story is a brilliant extrapolation of today's political environment, and could only have been written by the author of Fight Club. Darkly funny and poignant. ...

    Adjustment Day feels like the book Chuck Palahniuk's entire career has been leading up to. This novel is very much of the moment, a scathing satire of current American society, our modern climate brought to the extreme and turned on its head. While it is filled with the types of the...

    Maybe I'm just getting older, but it sure feels like Palahniuk gets worse and worse. I can't tell if this is supposed to be self-parody of its own failure to work as any sort of effective social satire. I think he's trying to outdo himself for being gross, offensive, and bizarre, but h...

    This book is over-the-top, unstructured, outrageous, graphic, vulgar, offensive, and pure Chuck Palahniuk. If you have read his books, then you know what to expect and this book has it in spades. I really want to give this Four Stars, but I felt that the choppy and all-over-the-place n...

    Unless I missed something, Palahniuk doesn?t explain what happens to the non-white/non-black/non-gay until about 250 pages in. For some reason that was ALL I could think about until it was explained. I?m glad it did eventually come out but I would have enjoyed the book more had we ...

    Rounding up from a 3.5 On the one hand, it's nice to have Chuck back and doing fiction. Not only that, he's doing fiction that doesn't rely on a gimmick like the last.... decade or so of his output. No disrespect to some of those books, but also some of them were garbage. On the ...

    I?m pleased to report a few months ahead of the scheduled publication date that this is classic Chuck; back with enough here to shock, offend and make us laugh all the same. The book follows a plot to completely upend the U.S. government and re-invent the nation into some Libertarian...

    Adjustment Day wants to be a commentary on modern society, the influence of literature and belief, gender and race politics, and the nature of power and government. However, it fails to fully elucidate on any of its points, and the ideas presented are often half-baked. A bigoted new wo...

    Adjustment Day wants to be a commentary on modern society, the influence of literature and belief, gender and race politics, and the nature of power and government. However, it fails to fully elucidate on any of its points, and the ideas presented are often half-baked. A bigoted new wo...

    The style and substance of this book are unquestionably the work of Chuck Palahniuk, but the delivery isn't quite there. In this sardonic critic of identity politics, the author imagines a grim America divided along arbitrary lines of race and sexuality. Although intriguing, it didn't ...

    I always think I know what I am getting myself into when I set out to read about book by Chuck Palahniuk. I suppose it is true that when I read the description of an upcoming release on Amazon, I set expectations. Often, I have read enough of the author to know where they will take the...

    Rounding up from a 3.5 On the one hand, it's nice to have Chuck back and doing fiction. Not only that, he's doing fiction that doesn't rely on a gimmick like the last.... decade or so of his output. No disrespect to some of those books, but also some of them were garbage. On the ...

    I?m pleased to report a few months ahead of the scheduled publication date that this is classic Chuck; back with enough here to shock, offend and make us laugh all the same. The book follows a plot to completely upend the U.S. government and re-invent the nation into some Libertarian...

    "Drugs are popular because they give the user a window of madness or illness that can be scheduled. Unlike sickness, drugs can synchronize the infection, derangement, and recuperation of a group of people." Adjustment Day is a modern reinvention of Project Mayhem that takes over the...

    Grilled peacock tongues, sweet smelling Shasta earplugs, brown recluse mush dick, buckets of spit, scary unbridled vajayjays, and the start of grouse hunting season. Palahniuk is a strange cat. I dig his work, but he seems to be a wee hit or miss. He can be absolutely brilliant and ...

    After first reading Fight Club in 1998 Chuck P has been one of my favorite authors. I've read all of his first eight books at least twice and most of them three or four times. Unfortunately he has been hit or miss since those, and this one is undoubtedly a miss. It probably would have ...

    http://www.themaineedge.com/buzz/the-... America?s master of transgressive literary satire is back at it again. Chuck Palahniuk?s new novel ? his first in four years ? is ?Adjustment Day,? a bleak look at the potential future implied by the logical (and not-so-logical...

    I?ve not read much of Palahniuk?s work. In fact, I?ve only read Fight Club. So, when I got the chance to get my hands on an ARC of his new book, I didn?t hesitate. He?s a writer I?ve always wanted to explore more. But, man, what a drag this was. I really, REALLY enjoy t...

    50 pages into this book, I was thinking, "Ah, Christ. So Mr. Palahniuk is weighing in on American politics too? Is fucking EVERYONE an expert now?" But then I read some more, and what he's doing is way more interesting. What I see happening on both sides of the real-world politi...

    I've been a big Chuck P fan for quite some time now. I even caught him live at the Triple Rock for the "Snuff" tour. His last few books haven't grabbed me like "Rant," "Lullaby" or "Survivor" did. "Adjustment Day" is different. An interesting take on dystopia, fueled by the concept tha...

    Invisible Monsters is my favorite Chuck Palahniuk book. I feel as though listing your favorite Chuck P book is the proper way to start a review of one of his other works, so people can understand the lens through which you?re viewing it. Adjustment Day is the perfect rebuttal to ...
