Description

Random House presents the audiobook edition of Adjustment Day by Chuck Palahniuk.

People pass the word only to those they trust most: Adjustment Day is coming. They’ve been reading a mysterious blue-black book and memorising its directives. They are ready for the reckoning. 

In this ingeniously comic work, Chuck Palahniuk’s first novel in four years, he does what he does best: skewer the absurdities in our society. Smug, geriatric politicians hatch a nasty fate for the burgeoning population of young males, working-class men dream of burying the elites and professors propound theories that offer students only the bleakest future. When it arrives, Adjustment Day inaugurates a new Disunited States of America. 

In this mind-blowing novel, Palahniuk fearlessly makes real the logical conclusion of every separatist fantasy, alternative fact and conspiracy theory lurking in the American psyche.

Boring as sociology professor lecture

I am a fan of Chuck Palahniuk books but this book in some chapters transforms itself to a profesor lecture of alternating history. I prefer to discover the story through characters. The idea of the book is original and interesting however

An Awesome concept, poorly developed.

I came to listen this audiobook by recommendation of a friend who has listened the first chapter, the concept was exiting, concerning the present days. But after the main event , the proper adjusment day, the story falls to a boring collection of confusing storylines of the "thousand" characters that the author presents. I must confess that I finish the book for compromise and for make my audible's credit count. A disappointing one.

Very hard to follow the story/characters

Although I love the other books of Palahniuk, this one is not really my taste. The story itself got some great ideas and there are certainly some phrases that make think. But there are so many characters which don't seem to connect overall. It is super hard to follow the story line and (at least for me) I get no connection or feeling for a charachter.
