    1. Mary Ann Evans, in the 1850s, spoke out against the notion that lady novelists were capable of producing only silly novels precious, sentimental, illogical and improbable claptrap while men produced high literature She changed her name to George Eliot and wrote as a gender neutral narrator, highly educated and worldly, and mostly transparent i.e not silly.The 1990s finds us again at a crossroads where literature is concerned, with the rise of Oprah s book club and the whole genre of chick lit on [...]

    2. You do not talk about Fight Club, butUpon winning the Oregon Book Award for best novel and the Pacific Northwest Booksellers Association Award, Chuck Palahniuk s visionary debut novel, Fight Club, was shot to the veins of mainstream fiction Following the success of its 1999 film adaptation directed by David Fincher, Fight Club gained cult classic status and has become a disturbingly accurate interpretation of our modern world.The unnamed male narrator, suffering from a long streak of insomnia, f [...]

    3. I wondered whether this book would seem self absorbed and shallow in our post 9 11 world, but instead I found it prophetic Throughout the materialism and political correctness of the 1990 s and Tyler Durden s response to it, you can sense how all that repressed mama s boy machismo is just hoping and praying for something big and fiery and nasty that would blow our little precious world apart Well, with 9 11 and the Iraq war, we sure got it So are all you boys satisfied now Sure, this book has i [...]

    4. I believe in love at first sight, and I m talking about books A few pages into The Dispossessed by Ursula K LeGuin and I knew that this was the book I had been looking for my whole life The same for Robert A Heinlein s brilliant The Moon Is a Harsh Mistress These books are speaking to me, the author and I are sharing a conversation and I am hearing what I want to hear but the writer, through the osmosis of shared visions, is saying for me what I want to say I had nebulous thoughts and that write [...]

    5. Dear Chuck, I have tried to like you Really, I honestly have I tried to read Rant, I tried to read Choke and then I attempted this book Rare is the moment where I realize I enjoyed the movie much MUCH then then the novel it is based on I simply do not like your style of writing, and I have been ridiculed by fanboys who will defend your honor to the grave Your style comes off as unique, but I can feel the pretentiousness like a piece of meat stuck in between my teeth You know full well that a va [...]

    6. This is satirical, cynical, Darkly intense A mind f k.What person in their right mind goes to support groups for cancer patients in order to get perspective on their own life and cure their insomnia That s what kind of story this is This is how it begins An Obsession with death Then the fight club is born Blue collar to white collar There are 6 rules in the fight club First rule you don t talk about the fight club Second rule you don t talk about the fight club Third rule two men per fight Fourt [...]

    7. 1st rule about Fight Club is read the novel first Well thats my rule, i watched the movie, when it came out years ago most the population and only now discovered the real Fight club.The narrator is a traveling automobile company employee who suffers from insomnia On advice from his doctor attends support groups and pretends to be a victim He gains some emotional release here and feels part of a people and becomes addicted to attending these support groups as an imposter He s not the only one who [...]

    8. I read this book as a self absorbed 18 year old and never looked back Brilliant modern critique of western consumerism and masculinity, told through the story of an underground club of men who beat the hell out of each other as a way of working through their disillusionments.Each sentence of each chapter is quotable, things like You are not a beautiful and unique snowflake You are the same decaying organic matter as everyone else, and we are all part of the same compost pile and We don t have a [...]

    9. Fight Club, Chuck PalahniukFight Club is a 1996 novel by Chuck Palahniuk It follows the experiences of an unnamed protagonist struggling with insomnia Inspired by his doctor s exasperated remark that insomnia is not suffering, the protagonist finds relief by impersonating a seriously ill person in several support groups Then he meets a mysterious man named Tyler Durden and establishes an underground fighting club as radical psychotherapy 2011 1390 230 9789643627379 20

    10. Well, now I reckon y all have seen the movie, so there s probably not a whole lot that you need to know about this book.You know Tyler Durden.He s the Id, the unchained spirit that wants what he wants and he wants it now He s the voice in your head that tells you that everything is worthless, that chaos, death and the end of civilization would be better than anything our so called society could ever create He s the one standing over your left shoulder, whispering Burn it all down It ll be fun He [...]

    11. I finally did it I stayed up late last night and I read the f ing Fight Club Normally, Chuck Palahniuk really pisses me off with his initially engaging and fantastically original stories which all too quickly turn into misguided ramblings about a bunch of asshole caricatures with preposterous lines like we need to get you laid, brother to signal the beginning of a plot twist and the end of you thinking that particular novel is going to be any good However, I must say that Fight Club was pretty s [...]

    12. Updated 9 11 17 For several months, I ve mused over a question on Fight Club, to wit Did this 1996 novel presage, two decades on, the election of a populist POTUS who could stir the hornet s nest of white, middle class, male Gen X ers such as those in the Fight Club out of their malaise to smack those they see as effete elitists and paternalistic bureaucrats If I had a background in political science or a lot of free time, I would dive into the fray.Original ReviewGeneration X Gladiators and The [...]

    13. Liked the short chapters but it took me longer to read than it should of because i went into hospital half way through it Loved the film.Was a total mind fuck.

    14. We ve all been raised on television to believe that one day we d all be millionaires, and movie gods, and rock stars But we won t And we re slowly learning that fact And we re very, very pissed off I can t write a detailed review, for obvious reasons Why does everyone break the first rule of fight club

    15. It s only after we ve lost everything that we re free to do anything Can somebody slap me in the face I ve had this on my tbr list since I first set up a account and I read it now after almost 3 years Why didn t anyone make me read this It was freakish ly amazing I am at a loss for wordsI don t know how to talk about the book without giving away spoilers and breaking the first rule of Fight Club You do not talk about Fight Club I can only say that the narrator is a troubled person with lots of s [...]

    17. Pretty graphic, but very well written Also, thanks to this book, I now know how to make a bomb out of orange juice and window cleaner I also know that men are completely insane.

    18. Hello Chuck,It s me again.Remember, I wrote to you about Choke It wasn t long ago.So I just read Fight Club Uh huh I know I was slow off the mark This book came out in 1997 What have I been doing with my time Well this book came out when I was sixteen and at that time, I have to admit Chuck, I was mostly trying to disappear up my own ass by reading things like Milan Kundera s The Unbearable Lightness of Being and On the Road by Kerouac.It s not easy to get angsty when you rewell a bit middle cla [...]

    19. I want you to do me a favor I want you to hit me as hard as you can By now I m sure you ve either seen the movie or read the book You know how having the crap beaten out of you can make you feel oh, so very, very alive You aren t alive anywhere like you re alive at fight club.It s the exhilaration we re all looking for, that one shining better than sex moment that lifts us out of our humdrum lives It makes life bearable, okay.After a night in fight club, everything in the real world gets the [...]

    20. I adore the way Palahniuk writes, it s like having someone back you into a corner and not knowing if they want to hit you or fuck youe tension is immeasurable His language speaks to the gut, the primal drives that undulate in all of us just beneath the surface of our civility THIS is the authors magic, the ability to make us feel so much with stripped down and raw language The words roll around in the head and make us THINK about our role in the modern consumer society Who am I What does this me [...]

Never judge a book by its shitty cover, just finish and then judge it.Will give an updated review of how being a Gemini have split personalities , makes this book so relatable.Gemini all have a split personality.People might say that then all of them should end up in a mental institution.It is very much part of our lives and the only way is to embrace it.So what are the crazy extremes that a Gemini can be Donald Trump His evil twin controls him and then we have Bob Dylan Embracing the creativity [...]

    23. S lo despu s de haberlo perdido todo dice Tyler eres libre para hacer cualquier cosa Voy a necesitar tiempo para procesarlo

    24. To start with, the film is so far superior to this book it becomes a valuable example in the argument of instances when film adaptations are better than the original books.There Ive said it.Moving on No, his writing is not good nor is it brilliant or Gritty one of my favorites, usually translates to bad It is indeed bad writing Bad from the perspective of literature Bad when viewed through scope of history and the pantheon of wonderful, eloquent geniuses of the written word Men who have put a pi [...]

    25. I don t want to die without any scars Chuck Palahniuk, Fight Club15 years ago, I saw the movie So, apparently, did every other slightly or mildly disaffected young man boy in the country I remember when even at BYU students were forming fight clubs after the movie No project mayhem BYU is far too neat for that Cougars don t cut corners , but plenty of virgins banging on each other It was a little bit absurd OK It was a lot bit absurd Anyway, I didn t want to read the book until I had spent enoug [...]

    26. The first rule about fight club is you don t review it.Sorry Chuck.But, I m Joe s Smirking Revenge This nihilist transgressive fiction is pitiless and told brilliantly with dark humour But as I ve seen the movie before It s my most favourite movie , I find it somewhat disappointing as the movie was much better as the best scenes from the movie were quite different in the book But still it s awesome.Fight Club is about self abnegation you are not the things you own , this is found in Hindu philos [...]
