• "The boldest book in a long while...ace"

    Lauren Laverne, Grazia
  • "A hilarious ever, Palahniuk is interested in pushing the limits. He leaps over the line of good taste - and lands squarely on his feet"

  • "Brilliant... It has moments of poetry"

    Daily Telegraph
  • "Brilliantly conceived, linguistically inventive and extremely rude"

    Anne McElvoy, New Statesman, Books of 2009
  • "The novel abandons minimalism for a Clockwork Orange-style spin through a semi-invented language. Consequently, it's Palahniuk's most challenging book yet"

    Colin Waters, The Sunday Herald
