Tender Branson, the 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.

This is author Chuck Palahniuk at his deadpan peak, a mesmerizing, unnerving, and hilarious satire on the wages of fame and the bedrock lunacy of the modern world.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Brilliantly satiric and savagely funny.”

    San Francisco Chronicle

  • “A turbo-charged, deliciously manic satire of contemporary American life.”


  • “Mordant…One’s sympathy for the improbably doomed hero is fully engaged.”

    New Yorker

  • “Convoluted, maniacally comic, partaking deeply of the America that streams toward us in the dead of the night from the cable channels—that place of outrageous expectation, slavish idolatry, fanatic consumerism, and mind-stopping banality.”


  • Survivor is the perfect comment on our apocalypse-fixated times.”


  • “Impressive…a wryly mannered commentary on the excesses of pop culture…Palahniuk’s DeLilloesque cultural witticisms and his satirical take on the culture of instant celebrity invest the narrative with a dark humor.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “This dark yet comical story, like all of Chuck Palahniuk’s books, provides rich and amusing social commentary…Garcia excels in the straight, almost emotionless delivery he uses for some of the story’s funniest lines.”


Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Gabrielle | 2/13/2014

    " This book is very interesting. The subject matter is incredible and way too convoluted for me to even try to summarize here. I say just read it and you'll understand! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Chrissy | 1/20/2014

    " I was not as enthused with this one as I was with others, but it was still an engaging Chuck Palahniuk novel, gore and shock value and psychological twists included. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Maria | 12/14/2013

    " "read" through audiobook in my car. It was a very unique story, I would expect nothing less from Chuck Palahniuk. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Souvik | 12/13/2013

    " A typical Palahniuk roller coaster, 'Survivor' once again leaves you disarmed, perplexed and full of questions. It will transport you into a world which is too unreal to believe and too real for comfort. Only Chuck can come up with such stories. And after reading five of his books, I now realize what makes him so unique; it's not so much his vocabulary or diction or structure, but his uncanny ability to so vividly sketch the universal and basic principles of life through his protagonists.
