Adjustment Day

The author of Fight Club takes America beyond our darkest dreams in this timely satire.People pass the word only to those they trust most: Adjustment Day is coming. Theyve been reading a mysterious book and memorizing its directives. They are ready for the reckoning.Adjustment Day, the authors first novel in four years, is an ingeniously comic work in which Chuck Palahniuk does what he does best: skewer the absurdities in our society. Smug, geriatric politicians bring the nation to the brink of a third world war in an effort to control 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 Adjustment Day arrives, it fearlessly makes real the logical conclusion of every separatist fantasy, alternative fact, and conspiracy theory lurking in the American psyche....

Adjustment Day Reviews

  • Lydia

    Invisible Monsters is my favorite Chuck Palahniuk book. I feel as though listing your favorite Chuck P book is the proper way to start a review of one of his other works, so people can understand the lens through which you’re viewing it.

    Adjustment Day is the perfect rebuttal to any and all of the “anarcho-libertarians” who continually misinterpret Fight Club. It’s as if Project Mayhem grew and was successful - it provides the follow-through, “but what if...” that anarchists are often too afraid

    “If you can slash a tire, you can harvest an ear.”

    On a large scale the premise is so intriguing, but in execution, it’s a disorganized mess. With no distinct chapters, and a stupid number of characters (none of whom I cared lived, died, lost an ear, whatever), it was easy to get storylines confused. Talbott’s blue-black book of aphorisms is the only thing that kept me going. Glad it’s over.

    Rounding up from a 3.5

    On the one hand, it's nice to have Chuck back and doing fiction. Not only that, he's doing fiction that doesn't rely on a gimmick like the last.... decade or so of his output. No disrespect to some of those books, but also some of them were garbage.

    On the other hand, it was hard to read this and not feel like the man is perhaps past his prime. Conceptually, he's got his finger right on the jackhammer pulse of the present (it was surprisingly gratifying to see him sending up

    This book is over-the-top, unstructured, outrageous, graphic, vulgar, offensive, and pure Chuck Palahniuk. If you have read his books, then you know what to expect and this book has it in spades. I really want to give this Four Stars, but I felt that the choppy and all-over-the-place narrative, coupled with numerous characters and timelines, was difficult to follow and that detoured some of my enjoyment of the book.

    Chuck’s best writing days are behind him! His last decent book was Snuff! 10 years ago

  • Yvette Lavanchy

    Adjustment Day was a big disappointment. I never really got the plot, there was just too many subplots and characters. I also didn’t understand where he referenced his own works “Fight Club” and even his own name in comparison of other books like Dead Poets Society, Gone with the wind, and Great Gatsby. Please Chuck, spare us this narcissism. I have enjoyed many of Palahniuk’s books in the past but this one I could not justify wasting a day to finish after I have wasted 24$ to purchase the book. ...more

    Let me very honest and tell you that I wasn’t all that excited when I heard of the new Palahniuk being released. I haven’t enjoyed his last couple of books and yet I was in a strange way looking forward to reading this one.

    At the same time, Palahniuk is not every reader’s cup of tea. “Adjustment Day” is his first novel in four years and might I add here that I was more than floored reading it. It is a book that is about the times we live in, the times that are dark and gloomy and no one else to

    Maybe I'm just getting older, but it sure feels like Palahniuk gets worse and worse. I can't tell if this is supposed to be self-parody of its own failure to work as any sort of effective social satire. I think he's trying to outdo himself for being gross, offensive, and bizarre, but he's misstepped in just adding more of the same instead of actually upping the game. If you're in the market for a book that makes you uncomfortable, read Roche's Wetlands, Delany's Hogg, or Homes' The End Of Alice. ...more
