Okay, so I’m going to break the first two rules of Fight Club…       Made famous by the film, Fight Club is about fighting. “No, really?” I hear you cry, and sure, what’s so interesting about two guys beating each other up? Except the novel isn’t really about fighting. It’s about themes as wide ranging as love, grief, illness, terrorism, capitalism and the intricate workings of Western society. Whoa, big stuff.       …

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.

Palahniuk's are always an OD on human dysfunction. Scary thing is there are worlds of truth in his dark comedies

Has the feel of an action movie wrestled down into words.

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 …
