In this ingeniously comic work, Chuck Palahniuk’s first novel in four years, he does what he does best: skewer the absurdities in our society. Smug, geriatric politicians hatch a nasty fate for the burgeoning population of young males, working-class men dream of burying the elites and professors propound theories that offer students only the bleakest future. When it arrives, Adjustment Day inaugurates a new Disunited States of America.

The writing style can make it difficult to follow as the story jumps from one character's POV to another.

Fast paced, predidictable, ridiculous but entertaining story. Was exactly what is expected from a Dan Brown novel.
