this book is undoubtedly one of the funniest books i've ever read/listened too. and it is very, VERY well read by anna fields. not only is it hilarious, but it is a really mind bending story with a definite 'fight club' resin pasted all over the plot. well done chuck palahniuk!
i have always been a huge fan of the movie so i figured i'd give the book a listen and point out the differences. bottom line, the book is SO much better. i'm highly disappointed that the movie didn't go with the guidelines of the book. the movie was alot darker and more or less sucked out alot of compassion from the original story and traded it for shock value. while the book is still rather gloomy and full of shock, there is also a great deal of humor in the original story. and the narrator did a real horrorshow of a job!
this was a fun story that went along the lines of most popular tv shows today that deal with detective work. point being, if you love csi then this is your book. plenty of twists and turns that are sure to keep your attention. i wasn't a big fan of the style this book was written in, however. the author seems to dwell on alot of irrelevant details, which made me feel like he was trying to lengthen up the story. however, it was an entertaining listen.
i greatly enjoyed this book. though parts were a little shuffled for an audio version and made it a little tough to hang onto the story, it was well narrated. the story itself is a twisted story that is sure to open eyes to the way we live today.
