Top Customer Reviews
The narrator struggles with apathy, going to extreme lengths to garner the sympathy he craves, until he meets Tyler. Together they explore their shared dissatisfaction and anger.
The structure of the story mimics the chaotic philosophy of its characters. Each chapter begins in the height of a scene, and quickly jumps through numerous other moments in the story. Most are only one or two sentences long, while others may be a paragraph. This montage style of writing serves to downplay the events of the story, highlighting the underlying ideas through the dark humor of the narrator, which may be its only real shortcoming. Much of the humor is rooted in crude pranks and explicit references to bodily functions and fluids. But, if you can overlook that, the story still offers some very unique perspectives on capitalist society.
"Fight Club" is an imperfect book. But its ambitious attempt to suggest that our efforts to integrate disowned parts of ourselves could help free our psyche from the grip of corporate power and pervasive consumerism is enough to make it interesting. For all people who care about finding out the truth about who they are, this novel is a virtual Bible!
The story of fight revolves around the life of the narrator, no name given. He is extremely depressed, the type of depressed that leads you to go to cancer support groups when he's not sick just to feel better about his life. Then he meets Tyler Durden, a charismatic, nihilist who takes him under his wing. Together, they start putting together the fight clubs. And things turn into mayhem from there.
Fight club is a book overloaded with black comedy. The jokes Tyler and the narrator get up to are described at length, and some of them are pretty good. Chuck Palahniuk's writing something is also a breath of fresh air. He uses a lot of repeated phrases/callbacks that emphasize how disturbed the narrator is feeling.
If you liked the movie, you'll like the book as well. Go ahead and buy.
There is a lot of mature content, so you may want to avoid giving it to a younger reader(even early high school would be pushing it). The perspective and mentality of the narrative presents nonconformity to socioeconomic ideas, and strong anarchic beliefs in a more direct sense when compared to the movie. Everything is amped up a degree from the movie, presenting a bit more passion over flair. It's the type of story that will change the way you think about the world and people around you.
