    Den store Gatsby av F. Scott Fitzgerald (keristars)
    keristars: Palahniuk says in an afterword that Fight Club was intended to be similar to the Great Gatsby. In a way, it really is - there's a similar mood and sort of feeling of despair at modern society, though the Great Gatsby was written and occurs seventy years before Fight Club. The relationships between the primary three characters in each novel are also similar.… (mer)

You are not how much money you've got in the bank
You are not your job
You are not your family
And you are not who you tell yourself!
You are not your name
You are not your problems
You are not your age
You are not your hopes

Tyler's words coming out of my mouth.

I could try, but I would never be able to write a satisfactory review, and besides, a review would break the first and second rules of Fight Club.

I'm just glad there is the movie. The movie really helped me experience the book more visually in my head, had I not seen the characters and the Paper St. house in the movie, I don't know how my experience of the book would be, maybe better, maybe worse. ( )

I read this Palahniuk novel after already having read a bunch of other ones. There have not been many novels in which we learn more about the author than main characer. I will never understand Palahniuk's fascination, better yet obsession, with bodily functions. For a while I thought it was just a plot mechanism he frequently uses but after seeing talks and interviews I have to conceded that this man is permanently occupied with all the substances the body consumes and produces.

Many people have written about how Fight Club is a manifesto against male fragility or other such social topics. I now think it's just an expression of Palahniuk's fascination with the male body. At the same time I think I'm done with this author, I'm just tired of being permanently grossed out.

There is one thing I've not been able to figure out regarding this author's motivations. When you've read a number of his books you feel you have to come to the conclusion that Palahniuk is mainly using shock value to get you to read his books. I sometimes think that but this is a rare case where I don't think that's what's going on here. The author seems to be singularly writing to get thoughts and feelings out of his system. Many time's I've wanted to ask if it has helped. ( )

After reading this I kind of feel like… what did I get out of this? I mean… like the movie it’s definitely effective satire, and people who take Durden’s message seriously… well let’s just say that says more about you than about the story itself. I didn’t really like “Fight Club”, but I also don’t find myself agreeing with other people who didn’t like it, because they all seem to be criticizing it on ideological grounds whereas I just thought it was kind of a slog. It was compelling, as the movie was, but honestly a little exhausting to keep reading about these little boys’ club! I find it really interesting that “Project Mayhem” is spending all this energy rallying against conformity but ends up just reinventing it! I will mention again how this thesis is lost on people.

Having seen the movie first, of course I want to immediately compare the two, and honestly I can’t think of any differences. Whole chunks of narration are lifted from the novel, and the big twist was honestly not very impactful a second time around, because once you know it then it loses its punch. So I guess if you’ve seen the movie this is worth reading for the cultural completionism alone, if that’s something you care about, but otherwise it’s so close to the movie that I’d skip one or the other. Although, the homoerotic overtones were definitely more present in the book! ( )

Fantastic!!! When I read it I actually tried to NOT remember the movie, so I would be surprised. That didn't work out, but the book is still awesome. ( )

A volatile, brilliantly creepy satire filled with esoteric tips for causing destruction, Fight Club marks Chuck Palahniuk's debut as a novelist. Ever wonder how to pollute a plumbing system with red dye, or inject an ATM machine with axle grease or vanilla pudding? Along with instructions for executing such quirky acts of urban terrorism, Fight Club offers diabolically sharp and funny writing.
 
This brilliant bit of nihilism succeeds where so many self-described transgressive novels do not: It's dangerous because it's so compelling.

Every generation frightens and unnerves its parents, and Palahniuk's first novel is gen X's most articulate assault yet on baby-boomer sensibilities. This is a dark and disturbing book that dials directly into youthful angst and will likely horrify the parents of teens and twentysomethings. It's also a powerful, and possibly brilliant, first novel.

Caustic, outrageous, bleakly funny, violent and always unsettling, Palahniuk's utterly original creation will make even the most jaded reader sit up and take notice.
