I like to believe that Tender and Fertility landed safely and raised their child together, living happily ever after.

Given that she had such a close relationship with the Credish survivors, he might have felt it necessary to erase her and the records. Him brandishing a gun was only so he could get Tender to come with him.
In the end, him having Tender kill him would fulfill both cchuck altruistic desire for a ‘new beginning’ as well as his personal desire for Deliverance. See all 3 questions about Rozbitek….
Lists with This Book. This book is not yet featured on Listopia. I’m going to be honest, I’m starting to become less and less impressed with Palahniuk’s work in general– and it saddens me to admit this. I’ve read five of his books now one non-fiction; one too plodding to even finishand it’s becoming too obvious that every character voice is exactly the same.
They are all written the same, they all have the same delivery of speech and thought patterns, they are all perfectly one-dimensional. Blank, emotionless, cruel, somewhat hateful. Disenchanted with t I’m going to be honest, I’m starting to become less and less impressed with Palahniuk’s work in general– and it saddens me to admit this. Disenchanted with the world, anti- and asocial. There’s no depth of feeling; even when Palahniuk attempts to create a characteristic turn-around, it falters and falls short with the singular exception of Fight Club.
The “hero” always knows a handful of miscellaneous facts that loosely relate to the content enough to serve as cynical metaphor how to make soap, how to clean up evidence of violence, etc. It works for one book, creating such a by-the-book nihilistic protagonist through disjointed prose, but when every. The writing is still “sharp,” if you want to call it that, but completely formulaic.
Disappointing to discover this about Palahniuk’s style. That said, this one is at least holding my attention a little more than Diary, so I’ll probably finish it. View all 11 comments.

Rozbitek by Chuck Palahniuk (4 star ratings)
Now, I know it’s fiction, but if you are going rozbotek write in a realistic style, then you can’t just have someone hijack a plane in a book before he’s even ON the plane If Adam was really this embittered killer, he would have been able to blow away Tender with no problem How would she keep getting clients?? It’s nagging questions like this that truly kept me from enjoying the book. Sure, the shock factor was there, and sometimes it was more than predictable I’m sorry, but I KNEW that lobster was gonna be alive!!
Survivor was definitely an entertaining read, but it didn’t have this lasting affect on me, as it did for many of my friends. That was totally his saving grace in this book. The flowers, the lips and the gun, the porn, the statue of Tender, the telephone It will be as good as Fight Club, I predict. Strong imagery sticks in your subconscious and if this book is lasting for me in any way, it’s several scenes that I can see as perfectly as a picture or a film real.
But honestly, I think he’s overrated. That’s just my opinion. I’m debating whether or not I want to go into another book of his. I feel that I will know what to expect,and find the same characters, slightly altered At least Kurt Vonnegut had some original concepts in his books!!
People who want to read something different. Strange, intriguing at first, but ended with disappointment. Tender Branson is a veritable oddball, with more against him than the average person. I liked him up until a palahniiuk in the novel where he ceased to think for himself. After that the book became unbearable, and a struggle to read.
What started out creative, interesting, amusing, and with a bunch of mental “oh really”s, ended somehow in dejection. Which is odd, because the ending is quite amusing at parts. It is different in that when you Strange, intriguing at first, but ended ;alahniuk disappointment. It is different in that when you read the first page of the book, you could be reading the last, as the book starts and ends in the present, and most of everything pwlahniuk between tells you how he got to his present situation.
Never has the word survivor meant so little. View all 4 comments. I didn’t hate this book or anything, it’s very imaginative and all, but the enormous amount of profanity was just nuts, not to mention the author’s style of writing is very fixed in one direction. I’d give this a 2. It’s a really weird, dark and somewhat depressing book not quite what I expected.
I did enjoy the rozbitej, it was written much like a stream of consciousness and that was interesting to see, but there were times that phrases were repeated and I wasn’t really interested in reading the same thing 3 times or more in one novel.
This is the story abou I’d give this a 2. This is the story about Tender Branson, a young boy who grew up as part of the Creedish religion. In his town everyone is like him, he aplahniuk trained every day to one day leave his home and go out into the big, scary world and work every day of his life.
He’s trained that this is normal, only the firstborn son gets to stay in the village, not him.
And so this is exactly what happens, but as we read more we see that that’s not all that happened, beneath the surface there’s actually a lot more that happened to Tender, and we discover it slowly as chuvk recalls his life story whilst hurtling towards the ground in a hijacked aeroplane. Straight away this is a very weird narrative and the page numbers are back to front in the book too which makes it an interesting twist.
I did enjoy this twist, starting a story from the end, but it is somewhat depressing and loses some of the excitement of guessing what could happen. Tender I thought was a fairly normal guy considering that he’d been in a Cult. He thoughts fairly similarly to how we would consider things rozbiitek he didn’t like the monotony of his life, much as you or I may not. I found that his character was convincing, but certainly was not a character who felt too emotionally scarred as I would have expected.
The story was a bit on the mad side with all sorts of crazy things going on leading up to the major ending that we already know is coming.
I think it would have been a better book had we not been told this ppalahniuk the get go, but I can also see that his life is rather insane and he’s a bit insane and that telling the story from end to beginning may relate somewhat to that. Overall it wasn’t a bad book but it also wasn’t a great one, it was just ok.
I don’t know if I’ll pick up more of Palahniuk’s work or not, I thought it was a good book in rzbitek and a crazy or dull one in others. I wouldn’t recommend it, but if you like contemporary stuff maybe you’d enjoy it more than I did so overall 2. Well, it started off all right. Survivor is a messed up book, which is about what we’ve come to expect rozvitek Chuck Palahniuk. From beginning to end, you get the sense that Chuck is trying to shock you as much as possible. And chhuck fine, as long as the story is good and the writing reads well.
But I think Survivor is an example of Chuck the storyteller failing Cguck the writer that may sound like doubletalk to others, but whatever. This is the story of Tender Branson, one of the few surviv.
