BlurbHaunted is a novel made up of twenty-three horrifying, hilarious, and stomach-churning stories. Theyâre told by people who have answered an ad for a writerâs retreat and unwittingly joined a âSurvivorâ-like scenario where the host withholds heat, power, and food. As the storytellers grow more desperate, their tales become more extreme, and they ruthlessly plot to make themselves the hero of the reality show that will surely be made from their plight. This is one of the most disturbing and outrageous books youâll ever read, one that could only come from the mind of Chuck Palahniuk.

Guts made me feel faint. A lot of good short stories with a solid plot wove in. Just wish I could get a better grasp on each character.
Some of the short stories are outstanding, written in a precise and gripping way. The main story line however tries to hard to construct bizarre characters while looking at them in a cold and "ironic" way. This bizarre-irony-mix ends in itself and for me it was tedious to get to the end of the book.
