What Haunted by Chuck Palahniuk is about:
Haunted is about a group of people that have innocently answered an ad for a writer’s retreat. Their host locks them in an abandoned theatre and tells them they have three months to write a great novel. He provides everything for them, but they won’t be able to leave until they produce their great magnum opus. At first, everything proceeds swimmingly until the group realizes that they could create a better story and be famous if their situation worsened. Individually, they begin to sabotage the food and utilities. Not realizing that everyone has the same plans, they end up destroying everything. Their quest to create the circumstances for fame eventually leads to death, murder, cannibalism, and self-mutilation.
