Fight Club
Fight Club | Chuck Palahniuk
This book that was made into the highly succesful movie Fight Club starring Brad Pitt and Edward Norton Every weekend, in basements and parking lots across the country, young men with good white-collar jobs and absent fathers take off their shoes and shirts and fight each other barehanded for 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 revenge on a world where cancer support groups have the corner on human warmth.

Darkly satirical, macho, and dogmatic comes anarchy personified, Tyler Durden, raging against consumer culture and class stratification with napoleonic savagery. Mindless, respectable drones become mutinous guerillas amongst sardonic undertones and hypnotic prose. I had zero expectations when I chose this book, having not seen the film, and was promptly knocked off my feet. Mind blown. Excuse me while I collect my jaw off the floor. Incredible!

TheIntrovertedDodoBird @emmasm08 It's so good! I've never seen the film, so I didn't know what to expect. Mind blown! 2mo
TieDyeDude The film is different enough that you can enjoy them as separate entities. I was a big Palahniuk fan until around 10 years ago. I've read a few of his recent books, but they just don't do much for me anymore. I really liked Survivor. 2mo
emmasm08 @TheIntrovertedDodoBird the film is definitely worth a watch too ! 2mo

I've seen the movie a million times, so when I saw the audio was available I had to give it a try. I was not disappointed!
Fast paced, thrilling and almost as good as the movie.
Yes, I liked the movie better, especially the ending 😄 But mostly the movie adaptation sticks to the book. Only a few deviation.

IndianBookworm Better than the movie? 13mo
Parvez @IndianBookworm I must say movie is much better, or I may be biased because I watched the movie first. 13mo
IndianBookworm But the movie actually is so well made. So, probably not biased. 12mo

Really enjoyed this book as it gives us an interesting look at humanity. Talking about how people can become influenced in an ideology. Also a lot about human connection and how important it is for a person. Overall enjoyed this one and can see why people really enjoy it

Check out our discussion on the mind duck books podcast

https://bit.ly/3yPzZtE

Both Paolo and Paul joined on this one to discuss the book that the famous movie is based on. We talk about what Chuck Palahniuk likes to do in his free time, talk about Fight club comic books – Fight Club 2 and 3. We also look at Fight Club 4 the children‘s book and finally look at the connection to Mr. Robot.

Palahniuk prose were riviting, and although I knew the plot I was still intrigued by the unpredictable narrator. I was curious to see how things would unfold in print form and for the most part the movie follows the book pretty accurately. This is a rare case where I enjoyed the movie more actually. This one fell somewhere in the middle for me. It's definitely one of thoes books that wont be for everyone. #bookreview

Certainly not a pleasant read, but I‘ve been curious about Chuck Palahniuk for years. I can‘t quite give the book an enthusiastic pick, but it was inventive and will stay with me for a while. 3* out of 5 (I have not seen the movie.)

Couldn‘t decide what to read next, so I decided to re-read this. Didn‘t quite pack the same punch (what the hell ever does?) and I found it extremely hard to read now without seeing it as a prophecy in which everything came true except the liberation.

This book was dark, gritty and twisted. I really enjoyed reading this classic though I would advise that it's pretty pessimistic and brutally honest about some dark topics. I liked the plot and the anger and perception of the world from our main characters, though I did find it confusing at times until the end with the massive plot twists. The writing style was odd as the conversations aren't written like normal, but I loked the originality of it.

A short classic. One of those I liked it as a teen and wondered if it‘d stand…I was wildly uncomfortable reading a good chunk of it, but the overall critique herein benefits from the graphic language imo. Some of Palahniuk‘s later work felt like he was being crass just for the sake of it, shocking readers for no good reason. But not this one! What a ride. Eager to reread some of his other books now!

I'm breaking the first rule - I'm going to talk about Fight Club! This was an interesting read. I saw the movie years ago and remembered the twist, which was unfortunate because I would have liked to have experienced the surprise while reading it. However, even knowing what happens, the way Palahniuk artfully weaves his web of in your face deception is fascinating. A great study in unreliable narrators for writers and entertaining to boot!

Jerlynn I love this book! It's one of my favorites❤️ 3y
BookDragonNotWorm @Jerlynn I wish I hadn't seen the movie years ago - would have loved for the plot twist to have been a surprise! 3y

Spectacular, far and away so much better than the movie. They are, in fact so different that I now consider them two different pieces of work/narrative.
Fight Club is a novel for broken men. Men who feel like they have no one to talk to, no one to expose their weaknesses to......it's a commentary on emotional maintenance and I loved it.

The Fight Club is one of the books that I never had a plan of reading. I saw the movie first and the desire to read the source material never developed. But a library sale happened and now it's on my physical #TBR so I'm #currentlyreading

KendallHershey I just read it a few months back and really enjoyed it! It had been a long time since I‘d seen the movie and I think that helped. 5y
