Publisher Description

“As gleefully, vividly, hilariously obscene as you'd expect. . . . Irreverent and hugely entertaining." —NPR

From the bestselling author of Fight Club comes a dark and brilliant satire about adolescence, Hell, and the Devil.  
 
Madison is the thirteen-year-old daughter of a narcissistic film star and a billionaire. Abandoned at her Swiss boarding school over Christmas, she dies over the holiday, presumably of a marijuana overdose. The last thing she remembers is getting into a town car and falling asleep. Then she's waking up in Hell. Literally. Madison soon finds that she shares a cell with a motley crew of young sinners: a cheerleader, a jock, a nerd, and a punk rocker, united by their doomed fate, like an afterschool detention for the damned. Together they form an odd coalition and march across the unspeakable landscape of Hell--full of used diapers, dandruff, WiFi blackout spots, evil historical figures, and one horrific call center--to confront the Devil himself.

Damned

Good, but he's written better. To be continued is always fun. Worth reading if you're a Chuck fan.

Had higher hopes

Fun concept, slightly repetitive themes towards the end of the book. The ending did not leave me wanting more.

Pretty bad...

Could have done without all of "creative" Trampy McTrampsalots and all that. Really, it was old after the first one. The book got semi-interesting toward the end, but it wasn't enough to make up for how brutally slow the beginning is.
