SPOILER WARNING!The much anticipated sequel to Damned, Doomed
is just as mouth-wateringly delicious as Damned. Finding herself
trapped with the living until the next Halloween, Maddie Spencer goes
back to her old haunts and learns just how much her telemarketing
exploits in Hell have  altered the natural state of good and evil. Given
her parents bizarrely influential role in society and radiating
confidence, they have developed a new religion based around being rude,
bad language, and bad hygiene, promising that these things would most
assuredly get you into heaven and thus condemning you to hell. Maddy
must stop her parents from condemning the world to Hell and continue her
battle against the Devil. 
THIS BOOK CONTAINS EXTREMELY CRUDE LANGUAGE AND
VULGAR SEXUAL REFERENCES AND IT IS AWESOME....if you're into that, if
you're not don't read it.

Description


Welcome to Purgatory. Chuck Palahniuk style. 

After a botched Halloween ritual, Madison Spencer, the snarkiest dead girl in the universe, finds herself trapped in Purgatory, otherwise known as Earth. The upside: she is no longer subject to physical limitations (she can pass through doors and walls). The downside: well, she's still dead. Her first stop is her parents' luxurious apartment, where she encounters her grandmother ghost. For Madison, the encounter triggers memories of the awful summer she spent upstate. As she revisits the painful truth of what transpired over those months, her saga of eternal damnation takes on a new and sinister meaning. It turns out, Madison and her parents have always been key elements of Satan's master plan—doomsday.

Praise For…


Praise for DOOMED:

"Palahniuk doesn't write for tourists. He writes for hard-core devotees drawn to the wild, angry imagination on display and the taboo-busting humor." —The New York Times

"With his love of contemporary fairy tales that are gritty and dirty rather than pretty, Palahniuk is the likeliest inheritor of Vonnegut's place in American writing."—San Francisco Chronicle

"Few authors have captured the pathologies of modern life quite like Palahniuk." --Rocky Mountain News

"Like Edgar Allen Poe, Palahniuk is a bracingly toxic purveyor of dread and mounting horror. He makes nihilism fun." —Vanity Fair
