Description

THE FIRST RULE about fight club is you don't talk about fight club. Every weekend, in the basements and parking lots of bars across the country, young men with whitecollar jobs and failed lives take off their shoes and shirts and fight each other barehanded just as long as they have to. Then they go back to those jobs with blackened eyes and loosened teeth and the sense that they can handle anything. Fight club is the invention of Tyler Durden, projectionist, waiter, and dark, anarchic genius, and it's only the beginning of his plans for violent revenge on an empty consumer-culture world.

    It's awesome! It's well-written! :P And for those who have seen the movie... read it! It's full of funny hints etc, leading to the end. It's awesome!

    In many ways, just like the movie. Incredible and inspiring!
  • (5/5)
    If you've seen the movie, rest assured that the movie is a faithful adaptation of the book, even trying to capture Palahniuk's writing style. The story is told from perspective of the nameless narrator, and the world is filtered exclusively through his eyes. We know something because the narrator knows it. The book is able to give us greater insights into the narrator's psyche, but the movie excels at conveying the raw intensity of the action (as is to be expected for its medium).

    I think I may have enjoyed this book more had I not seen the movie first. I like the author's writing style, but feel at times that it becomes repetitive. Though the book is good in its own right, if I had the choice between reading the book or watching the movie, I'd go with the movie.

    I really liked it. What can I say. It's funny, out there, a really good read. There are enough reviews on this book to satisfy so only a rating this time. Straight four it is then. Recommended.

    A wreckless masterpiece.
