New York Times Bestseller


"An irreverent satirical fantasy about a sudden and violent upheaval.…Think Tom Robbins channeling Jonathan Swift." —David Takami, Seattle Times

Adjustment Day is an ingenious darkly comic work in which Chuck Palahniuk does what he does best: skewer the absurdities in our society. Geriatric politicians bring the nation to the brink of a third world war to control the burgeoning population of young males, while working-class men dream of burying the elites. Adjustment Day’s arrival makes real the logical conclusion of every separatist fantasy, alternative fact, and conspiracy theory lurking in the American psyche.

Hm

I don’t quite know how to feel about that.

Bit of a slog

Adjustment Day wasn’t bad but I didn’t rip through it the way I have other Palahniuk novels. It was pretty slow going and the way main characters tied together was a little weak. Kinda meh.

Terrible

This book is a total waste of time, and actually the first book I decided to stop reading. Pointless, redundant, and not nearly as clever as it hopes to be. I liked Fight Club, Choke, and Lullaby, but this was just unreadable once the novelty of the concept and slim shock value wore off.
