Survivor

Recommended Posts

You should check out a book called Survivor. It's an excellent read. Here is a synopsis:

950690.gif

"Tender Branson - last surviving member of the so-called Creedish Death Cult - is dictating his life story into the flight recorder of Flight 2039, cruising on autopilot at 39,000 feet somewhere over the Pacific Ocean. He is all alone in the airplane, which will crash shortly into the vast Australian outback. But before it does, he will unfold the tale of his journey from an obedient Creedish child and humble domestic servant to an ultra-buffed, steroid- and collagen-packed media messiah, author of a best-selling autobiography, Saved from Salvation, and the even better selling Book of Very Common Prayer (The Prayer to Delay Orgasm, The Prayer to Prevent Hair Loss, The Prayer to Silence Car Alarms). He'll reveal the truth of his tortured romance with the elusive and prescient Fertility Hollis, share his insight that "the only difference between suicide and martyrdom is press coverage," and deny responsibility for the Tender Branson Sensitive Materials Sanitary Landfill, a 20,000-acre repository for the nation's outdated pornography. Among other matters both bizarre and trenchant. "

This book is just great. It's has a great story that is uniquely told. And has great comedy/satire, drama, suspense.

Thanks.  I will definitely put this one on the list of future reads.  Just beacons with JCDDistic humour and subject matter, and the whole MLM fascination with cults, etc.

All the more, it looks like its the same author who wrote "Fight Club", which, to me, is yet another millenniumistic film and book (I assume).  That will definitely have to be a separate thread (but remember, you are not your screen name!)

This book sound fantastic.

Oh and I forgot to add that there's that Fertility Hollis, has a "gift" that Tender Branson uses to gain fame etc....
