During the French Revolution, Chloe told me, the women in prison, the duchesses, baronesses, marquises, whatever, they would screw any man who’d climb on top.

1996, EN. Fight club is the invention of Tyler Durden, projectionist, waiter and dark, anarchic genius. Every weekend, in basements and parking lots across the country, pairs of young white-collar men meet to fight each other barehanded. For Tyler it’s all part of a plan for revenge on the world. During the French Revolution, Chloe told me, the women in prison, the duchesses, baronesses, marquises, whatever, they would screw any man who’d climb on top. Chloe breathed against my neck. Climb on top. Pony up, did I know. Screwing passed the time. La petite mort, the French called it. Chloe had pornographic movies, if I was interested.

I'm a grandmother and watching the movie didn't appeal to me because I don’t like violence until two male friends and my son insisted I had to see it. I was completely drawn in, especially when the real relationship between the protagonist and Tyler was revealed. To me, it was more of a psychological story. The musings about consumerism, the downward spiral of the main character, the creation of something that spins out of control, and the followers willing to do anything to be part of something were fascinating. His complicated relationship with the only female character who confounds, irritates and draws him is woven into a brilliant story. So I had to read the book. It’s a little different and the ending is different. But I was as drawn in to the book as the film. I also enjoyed the Afterword, which gave some background to the creation and aftermath of this book. Great writing and a compelling plot.

Let's talk about Fight Club. I was borderline unhealthily obsessed with the movie version of Fight Club when I first saw it at 16. In many ways, the book is better. Fight Club deals with self-loathing, repressed impulses, and the hypocritical and meaning-starved existence many of us in the developed world feel we live in a manner which never fails to be fun, engaging, and artistic. In addition to the message, as I've gotten older and read more novels I've come to appreciate the style in which Fight Club is written more and more.

PS if this book ends up resonating with your latent aggressive impulses, try boxing, kickboxing or Jiu Jitsu. (But please don't blow stuff up)

It was nearly impossible for a movie or television show to upstage the book. With Chuck Paluhniak’s “Fight Club,” it was definitely a close battle.

As usual, though, the original product won. Nothing against the movie, which is one of my favorites, but there is no way to inject the rawness of Mr. Paluhniuk’s prose into the entire film.

The writing contains the power of this book, a first-person tale of one man’s battle with the futility of a life that is good, just not good enough. The author brings us into the story just as the main character begins his fall into the rabbit hole, dragging the reader along. It is interesting that the main character never uses his name, though as a plot device this reinforces the characterization.

For those wondering if the book can pull off an ending that can compete with the movie, I can attest the final chapter is very satisfying and is one more reason to pick up the print version. Five well-deserved stars.

Somewhere in a dark dank basement in your town; men are beating each other to a bloody pulp in order to prove that they are not their job title, bank account, SUV, or IPhone.
Before the movie would make it a cultural sensation, spawning several real life fight clubs worldwide, there was the book. Author Chuck Palahniuk's first effort would turn out to be a knock-out punch. He admits in the afterward that he was paid a mere $6,000.00 for the manuscript. I hope he's getting paid hand over fist now.

Like most people I didn't know there was a novel until after I had already seen the movie. Fear not, you can still enjoy the book even if you saw the movie and know the twist. The printed story has a different ending.

So why is Fight Club so important? Face it, we're set up from childhood by being told that we're special, we're important, we're number one, we can be anything we want to be, etc. Eventually you realize that the contrary is actually true, we're all pretty insignificant. If said realization doesn't drive you insane or into a deep depression; you accept it and go on to make the most of your mundane life. America is such a commercial advertising driven, materialistic culture; always craving the latest gadget, luxury car, or designer clothing item.

Tyler Durden understands that the things we own, own us. He aggressively casts off the shackles of corporate, materialistic America and becomes free. He recruits an army of disaffected men thru fight club to tear society down brick by brick so that we will all be truly equal. He may be the most electrifying character in the last 25 years.

I didn't see the movie until eight years after it was released. Being a single thirty-something boy myself I immediately identified with it. It spoke to me like no other work ever had before. I was struggling to keep my home and put food in my belly performing a job I despised, because I was told that's what you're supposed to do. I often thought about liquidating my few assets, abandoning my home and liberating myself from the whole scene. In the end, my possessions ultimately won. Their hold on me is too great. I simply can't give up all the things I worked so hard for and nullify my life. It's still fun to entertain the thought though.

If you want to find out where it all began, pick up a copy of the novel.

Honestly, the ending was akin to that of a deadpool comic. A 4th wall break and then the whole twist of Tyler being a personification, or a literal being of chaos and malevolence, is fairly absurd and takes away from the fairly realistic first book. Also, the redux ending, how come it is insane that a rag tag group of people blew up a building? I mean, Tinothy McVeigh blew up a federal building in OKC, if I recall correctly, in '93. So, a lone bomber blew up a building but a cult leader could not? But, I digress. I can't complain about Tyler because it is Tyler and even if he is a cold Sociopath, he is very cathartic of you will. Anyway, it was a fairly fun read, just when you go back over it again, its flaws start to show more and more.
