L&L: Survivor by Chuck Palahniuk

Here we go! It's a quick look at the satirical novel Survivor. I like it a lot more than I anticipated.

- I liked the way it played with a lot of social commentary at once--the televangelism, the celebrity status, the cult obsession, sex shaming, noeveau riche, etc.

- Fertility Hollis. What a gal. Did she set this all up to get back at Tender? She and The Caseworker were not great portrayals of women, but I think I would rank Fertility over the Caseworker.

- Narrative style and structure were a big plus for this story.
