beautiful you by chuck palahniuk

★ ★ ★ ★


I'm going to come right out and say this book is messed up. When you go on Good Reads and see someone has reviewed the book, "no no no no no no no", you know there's something wrong. But I love a dark read, and I loved this book.

Beautiful You is about a wealthy businessman who invents a line of sex toys containing a vibrator that releases a mechanism into each woman who uses it that allows him to control them. The women become addicted to the toys and disappear from the streets. He uses the main character as his Guinea pig and after figuring out his plans, she works to stop him.

The book is super dark, graphic and bizarre. The writing was incredible and I couldn't put it down, but warning this is not for the faint-hearted.
