Invisible Monsters by Chuck Palahniuk (review by Elisabeth S. ’16)

Invisible MonstersInvisible Monsters by Chuck Palahniuk
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Invisible Monsters follows a small group of fashion models trekking across the states trying to find themselves. The unnamed main character, a former fashion model, is disfigured — crippled by a mysterious accident. She hides under a veil and is known to others as a monster. In speech therapy, she meets supermodel Brandy Alexander, and the story unfolds from there. This book is fast-paced and not for the faint of heart. It starts with a house fire and only gains speed. The imagery is shocking and offensive with its brutal clarity. Palahniuk’s details land like punches without let up. His plots are artful and ingenious; the twists nearly impossible to see coming. Highly recommended. 5 – Elisabeth S. ‘16
