Throughout the materialism and political correctness of the ‘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. Sure, this book has its flaws. The rhetorical use of repetition, although effective at first, eventually becomes little more than a stylistic tic.

Fight Club (novel) – Wikipedia

Also, for such a hard-edged book, it gets surprisingly and disappointingly sentimental at the end. And it holds up well after fifteen years. View all 23 comments. I finally did it. 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 wa I finally did it. However, I must say that Fight Club was pretty solid. I enjoyed it from start to finish, thought the timing and character development to be quite good, and found myself actually relating to the narrator on a certain level. I willhowever, state the obvious and say that David Fincher took something good and made it stupendous.

In short, the movie is actually better, but not by as much as I thought it would be. I don’t want to spoil the party so I won’t elaborate, but I did find the book’s ending to be a bit disappointing in comparison to Fincher’s version.

However, there was one element that the film chuk stripped plahniuk the story which I was pleased to find fully intact in the novel: Marla Singer actually has a personality. Marla Singer is smart. Basically, Marla Singer is more than just an impoverished, codependent, bipolar nymphomaniac who eel only around to make weird goth-girl quotes, grab mens’ nuts, smoke cigarettes, shop at thrift stores, screw all night, and then whine and cry when her fuck-buddy acts like a fuck-buddy and shows her no love.

Fight Club

Thankfully, though the figure in the film is still an interesting character in her own depressed, nihilistic way, the portrait which Palahniuk paints is much more richly detailed, and offers a greater explanation for Marla’s behavior than the film ever even ATTEMPTS to offer.

In doing so, the novel actually makes sense in explaining why this quirky girl is something worth causing a whole lot of trouble for, such as blowing half of your face off or ratting out a worldwide, powerful, underground militia of men who all know your face and feel obliged to chop your nuts off for doing so. Also, Palahniuk writes the dynamic between Marla and the narrator as much more amiable and balanced though certainly still laced with sarcasm than the male-slanted power dynamic presented in the film dominant, powerful sex-machine male vs submissive female sex toy.

Despite the fact that Tyler does not know that they are lovers, he still treats her AS A FRIEND, further explaining why she sticks around for all the madness rather than telling him to get peelea. So she’s not a complete sucker, and ed not a completely chauvinist pig. View all 9 comments. View all 3 comments. Pretty graphic, but palahniuj 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. Jan 25, Rusty’s Ghost Engine also known as Got into this better this time, Full review https: The first time I attempted this I found it impossible to get into and rather boring. This time around I found I connected better with the writing style and plot and even found the references to our world and society real Got into this better this time, Full review https: This time around I found I connected better with pxlahniuk writing style and plot and even found the references to our world and society really fascinating.

Even though at first I struggled to get into the narrative, this time I really was able to savour the richness and detail in the writing. I thought the way the author had written and structured this book was quite cleverly done with it adding just the right amount of detail and description.


In terms of the plot itself, I found this to be quite a depressing story especially that ending but that was probably what was intended because I know the palahnkuk monotony of everyday society life is a real struggle for a lot of people both then and now… How much more can one take until they snap? I liked also that the MC remained nameless as that allowed me to fully savour the story and what the author was trying to say.

For me, I think by making the narrator anonymous the author was really giving us a view of just how people with normal jobs are seen as masses and workers where identity and individuality are not important.

It was done brilliantly here and in a way made me think peea all the inequality of the world. But there again that was probably one of the purposes, to show a world like today where there are many who want to take revenge on a consumerist society that enslaves. Apparently, I’m not a fan of post-modern literature. I like my stories structured and when stream of consciousness is used, I don’t like to feel like I’m reading from behind a veil.

El club de la pelea by Chuck Palahniuk (3 star ratings)

Fight Dw has a brilliant premise and the first pages are pretty good. Unfortunately, towards the end, it feels like Palahniuk ran out of steam and decided to ramble as long as he could until his quota was filled. In books, I don’t like to know how palabniuk story ends. In Apparently, I’m not a fan of post-modern literature. In the first chapter we’re given the ending.

This is a device used to pull the reader in. For me, it distracted from the story. I didn’t care that Tyler was going to shoot the narrator. There was no suspense present. I, however, didn’t start enjoying the story until much later. I wasn’t pulled in, but I decided to push through. The characterization here is barely sufficient.

Tyler was the only three dimensional character. Marla was interesting, but in the end, I wouldn’t care to read more about her. The narrator was bland. The rest of the characters aren’t even worth mentioning. Perhaps this is why I don’t appreciation the execution of this novel.

El club de la pelea

With exception to the fight chkck, everything else was very cloudy. We are given many questions, but no answers. A book is supposed to ask questions, not answer them, but this is absurd.

Anarchy is the answer to what? Why is violence the answer to their empty lives? I have the feeling that I’m supposed to answer these questions myself.

But this isn’t a classic — it isn’t even literary fiction. Transgressive fiction should provide answers for the faults it finds with society. The biggest problem I have with Fight Club is the style in which it is written.

I’m not a fan of choppy writing.
