Absolutely great story, wonderful narration. I was unfamiliar with the story, but had heard enough references to it that I decided to find out what it was all about. Better than I ever thought it would be! I had to stay up past my "bedtime" to finish it tonight!
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.
Waste of a read. This book is right up there intellectually with the Harlequin romances
I love a good book...
...is you don't talk about Fight Club. Well, the book was very helpful in understanding the details of the mental illness that is present in the story. The movie left a lot to be desired in this realm. This is a well written story that helps one better understand the mind of a dissociative client.
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.
I am brutally honest. Popular, love everything they read, reviewers are scared to go neg. and risk their ranking. It's your money!!!
Ain't seen the movie, but I want to now. CP's writing comes right out of left field. You never know what he is going to say next. In parts it was like watching that cult classic Warriors. I just wanted to go get in a fight. As a 52 year old man who watched movies and TV as a kid and believed as I was told that I would accomplish my dreams in the corporate world, if I only worked hard, this story really hit home. You might think CP is just going for shock value, but if you listen, you will hear he as a lot to say. You may look at life a little differently.
