This version actually makes sense. If you're trying to figure out what happened at the end of the movie, you won't find it here because this has a different ending, a better ending.
I really wanted to try this book through my immersion reading. It may be one of the few instances that the movie is better than the book
I love fight club. I loved the movie, really liked the book. This is one of a few books I can go back and read over again. I decided to try the audio book. To be 100% honest, the narrator was not a good fit for this story, and actually took the enjoyment out of it for me. Wish they chose someone else for this one.
It takes a great book to make me regret watching a movie as good as Fight Club first. I have always loved the movie, but this book was so much better. I just wish I had read the book first because I knew too much to enjoy it to the full extent. Easily one of the best books I've ever read or listened to, regardless.
Having seen the movie first I was hoping the story would be more in depth, maybe a little different, and it was but only in some minor ways. Overall, for me the book was just a narrative of the movie. I did love the movie however and am not saying this is a bad book in any way. Its a great story complete with twists and turns, action, love, and fighting. Just a warning for those looking into this because of the movie, it is the same. For those who haven't seen the movie, I highly recommend this book...and the movie!
If you liked the movie for all the right reasons, then you'll love this book. It is satirical, dark, funny, and brilliant. The movie and book have some big differences, but they both stand alone as greats works of art. If you are truly a member of Project Mayhem- you will love it and become hooked on Palahniuk. The performance by the actor is excellent.
I am Jack's complete lack of surprise.
This audiobook was awesome.
This book is great. I enjoyed the story, and it was great to hear more the movie allowed. This ending is better then the movie. It is different but simular to the other Palahniuk books. Still a great read.
I'm a web developer based out of Sacramento, I listen to books while I work, and love audible.
How could something so disturbing be so good?
I first saw Fight Club in the theater in 1998, I think it was. I went with a friend, we were both 18. After the movie ended, he asked me, "What did you think of the move?", And I said, "I don't know." And asked him and he said, "I don't know."
Well for the next few days the gross out factor was fading, but other parts of the movie kept coming back to me, and I started to realize just how brilliant the movie was. And since that time both my friend and I consider it to be one of the best movies ever made.
This book is even more disturbing than the movie, but just as good. The movie fairly faithful to be book, but of course there are differences.
