      Quite possibly the most fucked up piece of literature I’ve ever read, this novel is a brilliantly executed train wreck from beginning to end.

      It made me want to blow my own jaw offbut in a good way.

      Check the shelf I put this on. Now you're ready: This book is insane. There's something on practically every page that makes you say, "What the *%$#!?" You'll keep reading anyway, though, and you'll love it. The book's like a really hard-core Swedish massage. It hurts SOOOOO good. The story is essentially about beauty: who values it, what it means, how it can be good, and how it can be a horror. Not only do the characters suffer FOR beauty, they suffer BECAUSE of beauty, and that's a powerful co [...]

      I'm too old for this stuff. Shocking doesn't do it for me alone, and he works SO VERY HARD at being vulgar and violent and crass. Don't get me wrong; those are three things that can make for a great story. But it was so unrelenting and contrived, and not as funny as it was supposed to be. There were some clever turns of phrase, and it wasn't entirely unenjoyable, but I was not really impressed.

      I have a theory about Chuck Palahniuk books.If somebody is starting to read Chuck Palahniuk for the first timee first book they read of his will always be their favorite. I have found that to be the case with many people. I really enjoyed Invisible Monsters and it was the first Chuck Palahniuk book I read. It was such a new approach to writing that I had never seen before, and I found myself really engrossed and moved by the now-usual Palahniuk twisty ending. It was such a shocking book to me th [...]

      Chuck Palahnuik’s Invisible Monsters has many similarities to Fight Club and clear influences from Sartre and John Barth. It’s disjointed, fragmented, almost incomplete, and yet, he raises complex questions and makes brilliant observations. I don’t think he is so much nihilistic as he is post-modern and just doesn’t believe in culture de jour, readily satirizing at what needs to be poked fun.

      No me disgustan los libros que no son lineales, de hecho he leído muchos narrados así, y me encantan. Sin embargo, este tenía tanto saltos temporales que el principio se me hizo muy difícil entender lo que sucedía. Incluso estuve a punto de abandonarlo porque sentía que no estaba leyendo la historia, sino solo párrafos extemporáneos sin sentido alguno. Fue un gran acierto haber tomado la decisión de no cortar con la lectura. Cerca de la mitad comencé a comprender un poco la trama y ya [...]

      Chuck Palahniuk is the hugely popular author of modern, edgy books like Fight Club (also a movie with Brad Pitt--go ahead, act surprised) and Choke. For this reason I did not expect to like Invisible Monsters, originally published in 1999.The story is told by a nameless narrator: a young woman who used to be beautiful. After a series of bizarre, haunting events involving a freeway, birds and a few other things those days are gone forever. Her face disfigured, her voice gone, the narrator is invi [...]

      نمونه بارز قدرت پالانیک در ایجاد اثری به سبک خودش. داستانی از انتها به ابتدا به همراه واضح شدن نکات در انتها و افزایش هیجان از ابتدا تا انتها. همچنین مثل سایر کارهای پالانیک، آخر داستان نکته ای وجود داره که یهو همه چیز رو تغییر میده، و معنای همه چیز که تا اون موقع داستان بر اساس [...]

      The main character in this book is nameless, and disfigured. She was once a beautiful model, and now feels invisible. She hides under a veil after being called a monster. When she lost her face she saw the true colors of everyone in her life. Her fiance leaves, and her best friend constantly steals her clothes while she's in the hospital. In speech therapy our main character meets Brandy Alexander, and the story unfolds.This is probably my least favorite book so far by Palahniuk, but it was stil [...]

    • Derrick says:

      It very seriously makes me sad that there are people that haven't read Invisible Monsters. Invisible Monsters is the most amazing work of art I have ever experienced and reading it for the 3rd time was the best decision I have made this summer. Of course, this is the remix version, so it was different than the original Invisible Monsters but mainly just in the formatting and some added chapters. * If you haven't read Invisible Monsters before and you decide to read it, I would recommend the orig [...]

    • Rachelle says:

      Chuck Palahniuk's ego is so bloated that he thinks he can write a story from a "woman's" perspective and still refuse to change his typical male chauvinistic-smug-self-indulgent writing style. Please. I can imagine him sitting at his computer, typing away, stopping only to jack off at his own drivel.

      REVIEW ALSO ON: bibliomantics/2012/06/01/aWe’ve all seen extended edition and director’s cuts of movies, but this is the first time I have ever come across an author’s cut of a book. With this hardcover release of Chuck Palahniuk’s third published novel (but his first in terms of writing), he took the opportunity to change the linear format that was originally published in 1999 and release it the way he initially envisioned it. The intention was to give the reader the feel of literally g [...]

    • Crystal says:

      It was a long time ago I read the original version so I can't say for sure on what was added material. Again I feel like I lost out on some of the experience by going audiobook instead of physical book the audiobook it would have you switch to a different disc and track where I'm assuming the paper book would have had you go to a different page. I did like the almost wandering feeling of not knowing how far through the book I was.As always with my #1 fav author, absolutely wild ride, never a dul [...]

      Bu kitaba biraz kusursuzluk ver.Flaş.Biraz çarpıcılık ver.Flaş.Bu kitap bildiğin şov! İçeriğe bakarsak bu kadar kusursuz olması mükemmel bir ironi. Karşı koyması imkansız. Bütün olaylar yokuş aşağı yuvarlanıyor ve bunun parçası olmaktan haz alıyorsunuz. Hannibal dizisi gibi. Neden yapıldığını anlamanıza gerek bile yok, hissediyorsunuz. Hele o son sayfalarda iplerin koptuğu kısımlar yok mu! Otobüste şaşkınlıktan gözlerim doldu resmen! Doyamadım. İş yer [...]

      Pages: 200+So, it's safe to say that Chuck Palahniuk owns my soul. Not even a little bit of it. The whole thing. Invisible Monsters blew my mind. I spent a good chunk of the book stuck in confusion and my mind felt like it had just been exposed to the trippiest thing ever. But, as I like to think, what is a Chuck Palahniuk story without mental mind trips and without confusion? It is not a Chuck Palahniuk story at all! Right off the bat Palahniuk leaves his print by introducing a set of character [...]

    • Chris_P says:

      Jump to me reviewing Palahniuk's Invisible Monsters. If mindfuck was a genre, this would be one of its most characteristic works. Palahniuk states at the introduction that it won't be linear, the story won't be in the form of and then and then and then. So what he does is at the end of each chapter he tells you to please, jump to this or that chapter. It was a first for me having only a vague idea of my progress in a book.As for the plot, it's better to not know anything before reading it. Palah [...]

      “All God does is watch us and kill us when we get boring. We must never, ever be boring.” ― Chuck Palahniuk, Invisible Monsters I admire what Palahniuk was trying to do here structurally. Dislocating the reader by organizing the chapters so they don't give you an exact idea, a hint, when the book will end is novel (it did kinda remind me, in some ways of those cheap "choose your own adventure" books I used to buy from books when I was a kid). Having the words in some chapters written back [...]

    • Bob Milne says:

      This just did not work for me. Maybe I'm not hip enough or cool enough to appreciate it, but it really got on my nerves. The narrator grated on me, the writing style just annoyed me, I was already sick of the moral/social commentary after the first chapter, and I was bored - not even frustrated, just bored - trying to follow the so-called plot. As for the much-touted sex and violence, it felt like he was trying way too hard to shock, simply for the sake of being offensive. Reading this reminded [...]

    • Teresa Proença says:

      O estilo da narrativaTão original que cansa, aborrece e irrita. Cada vez que muda de cenário o narrador diz: "Saltem para trás; Saltem para o presente; Saltem para mim; Saltem para nós; Saltem para; Saltem; Saltem; Saltem". E isto dezenas e dezenas de vezes. (Só dá vontade de fazer o livro saltar pela janela)A escrita também não é grande "espingarda"tem uma ou outra "tirada" filosófica mas com tanto saltitar perdi-asO enredo e as personagensÉ uma trapalhada tão grande e tão absurda [...]

      ****DO NOT LOOK THIS UP IN IT GIVES AWAY EVERYTHING I REPEAT DO NOT LOOK IT UP! In fact, don't even read the synopsis, I would just dive right in knowing nothing.****THE START:So far it is pretty good. It says right from the start that you are going to read this book feeling like you are missing things and it's very true. I am having a hard time holding on to any solid plot but am captivated from what I can grasp. It's the same author that wrote Fight Club and it kind of has that same feel wher [...]

      3.5 stars rated down.This one was pretty strange, not gonna lie. Someone I used to know always raved about this book as not only being their favourite Chuck Palahniuk book of all time, but their favourite book in general of all time. I didn't really research much before I finally decided to pick it up and I'm kind of glad that I didn't.This books was weird. It was written in a weird way and I liked thatI think? Part of me enjoyed this book and then another part of me is just really confused at w [...]

      You can find my review on my blog by clicking here.If I told you that Invisible Monsters was supposed to be Chuck Palahniuk’s first novel, before Fight Club were to ever happen, but was rejected by publishers for being too disturbing, would you believe me? Countless people have found themselves falling head over heals in love with this novel to the point of calling it Palahniuk’s best work of fiction and their own favourite book of all time. While Fight Club became a world-wide classic piece [...]

    • Mallory says:

      I hadn't read Invisible Monsters for years, so I was really excited to see the "director's cut" of the book listed on FirstReads, and even more excited when I won a free copy for review purposes. Chuck Palahnuik never ceases to fill me with a sense of wonder and a sense of dread. It must be really, really frightening to live inside his brain.There are a few major changes from the original text to the "remixed" version, but you could read either. The story seemed mostly the same, with the major [...]

    • Char says:

      I listened to this book on audio. This was such a strange story, I am at a loss for words. The narrators were fantastic, especially Anna Fields. (Chuck P. himself was one of them). This story jumps all over the place and it takes a while to get a feel for what's happening. This audio book came with a link to a pdf file explaining how there areare 4 different loops to follow, and the instructions on how to do that. Or, you can just listen-after each portion, a narrator pops on and tells you where [...]

      WARNING: I might be an asshole in this reviewd there will be few spoilers here and there, as well as a lot of profanity First of all, I don't give a slightest shit about any of the characters in this book, especially Brandy Alexander, Queen Supreme, AKA Princess Princess. She is a pill popping, surgery obsessed, not giving a crap about anybody else kind of a bitch. She goes around judging people, showing them catalogs that have different plastic surgeries that she can get, even vaginoplasty. She [...]

      “If I can't be beautiful, then I just want to be invisible.”Chuck Palahniuk is a truly unique and twisted individual. He also seems to be a bit hit or miss with me. I have come to the conclusion that timing may be everything for a Palahniuk read.Invisible Monsters has it all. Pretzel plotting, biting wit, uber-bizarre characterizations, scathing sarcasms, all wrapped up in a non-linear format that was either going to suck balls or be utterly brilliant. I’m going with brilliant.Geesh pierci [...]

      Pura follia, uno schiaffo alla convenzionalità del mondo, dei canoni estetici, di ciò che è veramente giusto o sbagliato. Una ricerca di se stesse a partire dalla mutilazione del volto, dalla trasfigurazione del corpo, dall'errore, dalla fuga dalla precedente vita per gettarsi nel caos di una vita allo sbando, delirante e capire così chi sei davvero. Per tutta la vita ti insegnano sempre a fare la cosa giusta ma qual è davvero la cosa giusta? Siamo sicuri di vivere così una vita vera, scel [...]
