Tender Branson is on a plane and it is clearly going to crash, especially now that he has cleared the plane of all other passengers and he is the only man left. Before dying, he wants to tell the world about his life - a life that is very different from most other people. For Tender is Creedish, which means he was brought up in the beliefs of a religious cult. As the second child (his twin brother was born a few minutes before him), he is destined for a life of servitude, and, as soon as he was old enough, he was sent out to make his living. Then the police began investigating the Creedish, and rather than share their world with the outside one, all the Creedish, with ... Read the complete review

I'm a sucker for unusual books, I admit it. Whether it's an unconventional size of volume, or an unusual layout of text on the pages, I'm there. So, when I saw the novel 'Survivor' by Chuck Palahniuk numbered the pages in reverse order, I had to buy it. I wasn't particularly worried about the plot, nor about the author, I just thought it was an interesting gimmick, so I rewarded the publisher with a purchase. As it turns out, my purchase was a very rewarding one. 'Survivor' is a very well-written, captivating book, with a lot of fascinating ideas, and a healthy (or unhealthy) dash of pre-millennial tension thrown in for good ... Read the complete review

Given the success of Chuck Palahniuk's novel Fight Club when adapted into a film, and the relatively good attempt at his Choke also, I'm surprised that Survivor hasn't yet been optioned, because it's arguably his most cinematic book, and definitely one of his best (perhaps second only to Fight Club). The story introduces you to Tender Branson, who is the sole survivor of a suicidal cult. We begin the story in media res (in the middle of the story), and Branson notes to us how he has hijacked a plane and is going to crash it, killing himself. He documents his life into the plane's recording device, beginning with his childhood and detailing right up to present ... Read the complete review

I can’t remember the last time I read a novel that taught me so much. Want to know how to clear those stubborn wine stains from your clothes? How to safely clear broken glass? How to eat lobster? Tender Branson, the hero of Chuck Palahniuk’s ‘Survivor’ can tell you all this and more. Home economics, social etiquette and the virtues of the work ethic are all that he knows. Why? Because Tender Branson is Creedish. In fact he is the last of the Creedish, the rest of this Christian sect having engaged in a mass suicide a la the Peoples Temple, Heaven’s Gate and others in recent years. And, as the novel opens (at the last page of the last ... Read the complete review
