Book Thirteen 2013, Invisible Monsters

This was going to be the first novel publish by Chuck Palahniuk but the publisher find it really disturbing and decided not to go ahead. After the success of Fight Club they gave it a second shot.

 
The story follows a disfigured super-model who goes by many false identities given by Brandy Alexander, a transsexual with whom she spends most of the book.
 
From the moment they meet in the hospital you’re thrown into a menagerie of eccentric characters that goes from a triage of drag queens to a special vice agent who is obsessed with how he looks in a speedo.
 
The story touches deeply in the burden of being perfect and how can she  find new beginnings after her way of life is literally rip apart. 
 
This is no light reading, but as all of this authors work is beautifully executed.
 
So that’s 7,369 pages down, 42,373 pages to go.
 
Total Pages 118,949 pages
