Description

Haunted is a novel made up of twenty-three horrifying, hilarious, and stomach-churning stories. They’re told by people who have answered an ad for a writer’s retreat and unwittingly joined a “Survivor”-like scenario where the host withholds heat, power, and food. As the storytellers grow more desperate, their tales become more extreme, and they ruthlessly plot to make themselves the hero of the reality show that will surely be made from their plight. This is one of the most disturbing and outrageous books you’ll ever read, one that could only come from the mind of Chuck Palahniuk.

    Having just finished this book and never having read any other Chuck Palahniuks books, I can say that was probably the craziest book I've ever read. I won't spoil any of the story but for the sake of a review must state that this is a tale which has a ton of short stories intertwined with the main story. I found some to be interesting, some dull, some bizarre and one so foul i will never get it out of my head. The payoff for some of these stories also fell short for me. Unfortunately, so did the main story. It wasn't bad, just not what I was expecting and left me feeling like I was missing 5 pages in the back. All in all, I'm glad to of read it but can't think of anyone I know to recommend this to.

    Haunted is a truly fascinating book, it wonderfully illustrates the sick side of humanity, and our constant fascination with violence and conflict. In this dark and disgusting book you will read 24 short stories, each one sicker than the last, written by and about a group of people invited to a writer's retreat.
  • Fantastic

    Ordinarily I'm not a huge reader. I could not put this book down. It was a little gritty in parts, but that was part of the appeal for me. If you have a weak stomach, do not eat before reading the first two chapters.
  • Kinda graphic

    No I take that back. It's not graphic...it's just wrong but morbidly fantastic at the same time. Try to bare through the gritty parts. It's so worth it.
  • Yes!
