Description

The author of Fight Club takes America beyond our darkest dreams in this timely satire. People pass the word only to those they trust most: Adjustment Day is coming. They've been reading a mysterious blue-black book and memorizing its directives. They are ready for the reckoning. In this ingeniously comic work, the author's first novel in four years, Chuck Palahniuk does what he does best: skewer the absurdities in our society. Smug, geriatric politicians hatch a nasty fate for the burgeoning population of young males; working-class men dream of burying the elites; and professors propound theories that offer students only the bleakest future. When it arrives, Adjustment Day inaugurates the new, disunited states. In this mind-blowing novel, Palahniuk--an equal-opportunity offender--fearlessly makes real the logical conclusion of every separatist fantasy, alternative fact, and conspiracy theory lurking in the American psyche.

Professional reviews

"Narrator Corey Allen tries to keep up with the sprawling story that is the latest offering by the author of FIGHT CLUB. Without a central character to follow, listeners would benefit from more variety in the performance to help differentiate between the ever-changing cast. For those who persist, however, Allen's upbeat, masculine flair brings across the dangers lurking in a not-so-distant future when being different in America is actively discouraged. In this nontraditional novel the plot meanders from one setting to another with Allen doing his best to maintain the listener's interest. For fans of Palahniuk's work, this is the latest in a series of social satires to be savored before it can be fully understood. M.R. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine"
