Doomed, Chuck Palahniuk’s much-anticipated sequel to Damned, continues the infernal adventures of Madison Spencer, “the liveliest and snarkiest dead girl in the universe.” While the first instalment of the trilogy presented the reader with Hell: the Palahniuk edition, Doomed is a dark, provocative, very irreverent apocalyptic vision.

The simple yet arresting book jacket featuring a brightly coloured hot air balloon against a lovely blue sky doesn’t hurt the case, either.
