Críticas:

"Reading a Palahniuk novel is like getting zipped inside a boxer's heavy bag while the author goes to work on you, pounding you until there is nothing left but a big bag of bones and blood and pain." --"The Miami Herald" "To Palahniuk's credit, there is something here to appall almost every sensibility. The author has a singular knack for coming up with inventive new ways to shock and degrade." --"The New York Post" "Frequently entertaining [and] often appalling. . . . There are paragraphs here--entire pages, in fact--that are as disgusting as anything I've ever read. Truly vivid and harrowing (and often quite funny)." --"Minneapolis Star Tribune" "Summer reading for people who like their lit doused in bodily fluids.. . . "Haunted "has an anarchic sensibility that hurdles over the top."--"Time Out New York " "Chuck Palahniuk is one of the most intriguing writers of our time.

"Haunted "has an anarchic sensibility that hurdles over the top." -- "Time Out New York" " Chuck Palahniuk is one of the most intriguing writers of our time. ["Haunted "] is a blend of stories that are among the most horrifying, stomach-churning and mind-blowing tales ever encountered." -- "Tucson Citizen" " Chuck Palahniuk's rightful place is among literary giants. He combines the masculinity of Ernest Hemingway, the satirical bent of Juvenal and the attitude of Lenny Bruce." -- "Greensboro News & Record" " To Palahniuk's credit, there is something here to appall almost every sensibility. The author has a singular knack for coming up with inventive new ways to shock and degrade." -- "New York Post" " Funny, always on the edge of reality andbloodied by the profound horror of narcissism." -- "Playboy" " Place this bet in your time capsule: Chuck Palahniuk's novels will be required reading in American literature classes 100 years from now." -- "The Fort Myers News-Press" " Palahniuk is as unique and colorful as ever." -- "The Onion" " Searing and honest. ...His nasty detail and unimaginably horrible scenarios will give some people nightmares. This creepy ?ction masterpiece could be the de?nitive novel of our time for its genre." -- "The Cincinnati News Record" " Chuck Palahniuk appears to be going around the bend. ...A satire of reality television- an effective one- but also an homage to horror stories and a meditation on pop culture." -- "The Seattle Times" " The most original work of ?ction this year." -- "The Guardian "(London) " Chuck Palahniuk is up to his old tricks. ...His prose is, as always, gorgeous." -- "Entertainment Weekly" " One part "Canterbury Tales," one part "Lord of the Flies," and 100 percent classic Palahniuk. ...[His] grisliest book yet." -- Broward-- Palm Beach" New Times"

Reseña del editor:

"Haunted" is a novel made up of stories: twenty-three of them to be precise. Twenty-three of the most horrifying, hilarious, mind-blowing, stomach-churning tales you'll ever encounter - sometimes all at once. They are told by the people who have all answered the ad headlined 'Artists Retreat: Abandon your life for three months'. They are led to believe that here they will leave behind all the distractions of 'real life' that are keeping them from creating the masterpiece that is in them. But 'here' turns out to be a cavernous and ornate old theatre where they are utterly isolated from the outside world - and where heat and power and, most importantly, food are in increasingly short supply. And the more desperate the circumstances become, the more desperate the stories they tell - and the more devious their machinations become to make themselves the hero of the inevitable play/movie/non-fiction blockbuster that will certainly be made from their plight. "Haunted" is at one level a satire of reality television. It draws from a great literary tradition - "The Canterbury Tales", "The Decameron", the English storytellers in the Villa Diodati who produced, among other works, "Frankenstein" - to tell an utterly contemporary tale of people desperate that their story be told at any cost. Appallingly entertaining, "Haunted" is Chuck Palahniuk at his finest - which means his most extreme and his most provocative.
