taralovesbooks’ #CBR4 Review #18: Survivor by Chuck Palahniuk
Cannonball Read IV: Book #18/52
Chuck Palahniuk books are kind of hard to review. They are the closest thing I can imagine to being inside the mind of a crazy person. They always start out disjointed and then once you start piecing things together, they start to make a little more sense. But still — mind of a crazy person. Survivor is more of the same formula.
Basically, you’re inside the mind of a crazy guy who used to be in a religious cult where most of the members killed themselves. He survived, but now he’s hijacking a plane to commit suicide. Then the story goes backwards and tells us what happened between the cult and the hijacking. From there it’s a just a scrambled mess of craziness.
