Damned by Chuck Palahniuk

Damned by Chuck Palahniuk

3/5

Very much a vehicle for Palahniuk to rant about this and that through the voice of a 13 year old girl condemned to hell, supposedly for overdosing on pot. Entertaining, but felt that the plot served the ranting rather than the other way round.
