Quintessential Palahniuk that presents a good balance between an untrustworthy narrative and pop literature...

the book is passable, but the film is amazing! the extra visuals really make a difference.

Palahniuk's irreverent critiques and parodies of society and consumerism make this an interesting and thoughtful work.

What if you had a crazy wake up call, and instead of preach peace you preach and spread the caos. Great story. Kind of weird end. What isn't weird in this book?!

a man with a split personality cannot cope with it and literally fights himself for control of his thought process. This is one of he silliest concepts ever to become a best seller!! and movie for gawd's sake !!

Here's a goodly number of hours of my life that I'll never get back. I honestly cannot understand the attraction to Palahniuk's writing; it is bland, nonsensical, irrelevant, confusing, and has an "Emperor's New Clothes" aspect to his fan-base and critical reviewers that makes me even more suspicious. I just can't get into it.

I saw the movie "Fight Club" a couple years before I heard who Chuck Palahniuk was, and the film was a fantastic guy movie, and a pretty phenomenal flick all around. After I learned who Palahniuk was and read several of his other stories, I figured it was time to get to his first and probably most popular novel, "Fight Club." I was not disappointed.      From the introduction, Palahniuk sums up his goal with "Fight Club": to write a story where you get just the kernel of the …

After having watched the interesting movie, I wanted to read the novel and compare the similarities and differences between the two different mediums. I find the movie to be superior, but the book is interesting nonetheless.FIGHT CLUB is the type of novel that won't make sense if you're just looking for a good story. To begin with, it's a novel that deals with all kinds of complex issues (the enslavement of materialism, what is reality, etc.). However, besides that is the fact that the story is …
