*Arc Review* Adjustment Day- Chuck Palahniuk

“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 world. People get brainwashed by what they see on television and what they read in this little blue/black book. They get consumed by what they see and hear. It’s eerie how similar this story is to the world we are living in now.

The first rule of Adjustment Day is you must talk about Adjustment Day.

The second rule of Adjustment Day is you must talk about Adjustment Day.

The third rule of Adjustment Day is you must carry the little blue/black book at all times and it must be visible.

The fourth rule of Adjustment Day is if you die, that ear is coming off.

Chuck Palahniuk is my favorite author and it pains me to say this but this is the first time that I have been fully disappointed by one of his books. There wasn’t anything special about this and I couldn’t even finish it. My heart breaks.

If you are just reading Palahniuk for the first time, I would find another one. If you don’t look at it, maybe it will go away!

Fight Club 2- Chuck Palahniuk

“The Highest Form of Authority Resides In: A. Tyler Durden”

The greatest Christmas gift I have received this year. 

I’m about to break all the rules. Fight Club is back and it does not even come close to lining up to the original. Interesting and unique, but it’s not what we were craving. And only the master Chuck can write himself into his own book. 

Narrator going by Sebastian is back, married to the one and only Marla and they have a son, Junior.

Sebastian has a nine to five and takes pills to live and forget. Marla hasn’t changed and lies in group meetings. Testicular Cancer, sickle cell and even progeria. She thought she could live without Tyler, but she can’t. To get him back she has been swapping out Sebastians pills little by little.

The Maggots are now ready. Project Mayhem is in full effect and Tyler is a god. Your money is no good here Mr. Durden!

The hunt is on the save the world and her son from Tylers grip. How will it end?

I think since this wasn’t what we wanted he should write a novel of FC2. We deserve it. And I’m kind of biased with Chuck. Couldn’t rate this any lower than I did. Snowflakes don’t do that.

Read at your own risk!!
