Misty Wilmot has had it. Once a promising young artist, she’s now stuck on an island ruined by tourism, drinking too much and working as a waitress in a hotel. Her husband, a contractor, is in a coma after a suicide attempt, but that doesn’t stop his clients from threatening Misty with lawsuits over a series of vile messages they’ve found on the walls of houses he remodeled.

Suddenly, though, Misty finds her artistic talent returning as she begins a period of compulsive painting. Inspired but confused by this burst of creativity, she soon finds herself a pawn in a larger conspiracy that threatens to cost hundreds of lives. What unfolds is a dark, hilarious story from America’s most inventive nihilist, and Palahniuk’s most impressive work to date.

the first half of this book was very slow for me. i can't say if it was the plot or maybe the characters, but i couldn't get into it as easily as i have with Palahniuk's other books that i've read. the second half of the book seems to move a bit faster as it gets closer to the reveal of the "mystery" of the island and of Misty and her purpose there. interesting read, but overall i'm kinda eh about it.
