Tender Branson, the last surviving member of the Creedish Death Cult, is dictating his memoirs into the record of Flight 2039. The plane is on autopilot at 39,000 feet somewhere over the Pacific Ocean. Branson is alone on the flight; the plane is programmed to crash into the Australian Outback. Before the plane crashes, however, Branson will have recorded his transformation from an obedient Creedish child to an ultra-buffed, steroid- and collagen-packed media messiah.

Palanuik's second book is a lot like his first except he doesn't go for some Tyler Durden type of twist. The first person style of narration is going to be familiar to those that have read Fight Club; even the ideas and vaguely philosophical expositions feel left over from the first book. Still this story is fascinating and filled with crazy twists and turns. Overall, an interesting read and probably worth your time if you enjoyed anything else by this author.

A long, twisted story. Well worth the read.

Enjoyed it, but it wasn't my favorite Palahniuk. The middle I found kind of boring, and I wished Fertility was there more of the time. Still a good and satisfying read, especially if you want something a little messed up.

The last survivor of a death cult is on a plane to Australia to crash. It is somewhat clever bu totally unreal (unfortunately, not surreal!).

An interesting look at an interesting person Tender Branson.. took a while to get into the book, but it kept me reading after getting to the revealing parts... some parts had to read twice as they were mentioned so non-chalantly and yet so surprising.. a good read.. ending is very appropriate.. testing, testing, one, two.........
