    You do not talk about Fight Club butUpon winning the Oregon Book Award for best novel and the Pacific Northwest Booksellers Association Award Chuck Palahniuk’s visionary debut novel Fight Club was shot to the veins of mainstream fiction Following the success of its 1999 film adaptation directed by David Fincher Fight Club gained cult classic status and has become a disturbingly accurate interpretation of our modern worldThe unnamed male narrator suffering from a long streak of insomnia finds cure by attending cancer support groups But when Marla Singer—a sallow heavy smoking nihilist—enters the evening meetings and mirrors his own fraud his insomnia returns so he confronts Singer to split schedules with himOn the night when his condominium mysteriously blows up he calls Tyler Durden whom he had previously met—under strange circumstances—on a beach They agree to meet at a bar where after drinking Durden asks him a favor “I want you to hit me as hard as you can” The narrator swings the punch that cradled Fight Club into the world Shortly a multitude of men with white collar jobs join them Every weekend in the parking lots and basements of bars they hold these late hour no holds barred and barefisted fights that “go on as long as they have to”These one on one melees curiously evoke psychotherapeutic effects—resembling that of enlightenment—within the men they are reborn from their entombed livesFight Club soon evolves into Project Mayhem an anarchic army led by Durden who seeks to fulfill his visions of global enlightenment through organized chaos public unrest and demolition Fight Club is a social satire on the dehumanizing effects of consumerism alienation brought by chronic materialism illusory comforts overindulgence and career and lifestyle obsessions fueled by advertising “The modern world is for business—not for the people” as what the great psychoanalyst Carl Jung said“It’s only after you’ve lost everything that you’re free to do anything” Skillfully fusing Zen elements with Durden’s extremist ideologies Palahniuk has written a provocative expression of metaphysical rebellion The collective revolt against the existential vacuum is Durden’s nucleus and what draws men toward him Fight Club’s noir ambience and the solid economy of its prose are reminiscent of Albert Camus’s The Stranger but with the sharp nonlinear narration executing its plot; inheriting Kurt Vonnegut’s dark humor Chuck Palahniuk is among today’s distinct and intriguing voices

    Mary Ann Evans in the 1850s spoke out against the notion that lady novelists were capable of producing only silly novels precious sentimental illogical and improbable claptrap while men produced high literature She changed her name to George Eliot and wrote as a gender neutral narrator highly educated and worldly and mostly transparent ie not sillyThe 1990s finds us again at a crossroads where literature is concerned with the rise of Oprah's book club and the whole genre of chick lit on the one hand in many cases just silly novels by lady novelists revivified and a sort of phallic anxiety heavy on the masculine literature on the other This second group I like to call guy crap It's not a bad label ; there's some good stuff in guy crap just like there is on Oprah's book list Guy crap includes genre fiction Dennis Lehane Jonathan Lethem as well as insistent intellectualism David Foster Wallace Martin Amis Paul Auster and of course the violent psych you out latter day Robbe Grillet disturbances of Bret Easton Ellis and Chuck Palahniuk Some of these are done well and some of them are just as silly as the lady novelists' claptrap Fight Club is one of those novels where the unrelenting GUY ness of narrator and storyline begins as an intriguing challenge and ends up fatiguing and gimmicky In case there's anyone out here who hasn't either read the book or seen the movie I won't spoil anything I promise It's a book about a bunch of young men frustrated in their low on the ladder white collar day jobs and the emptiness of modern society who meet routinely to pound each other close to death and plot destruction on a less personal scale The novel is Palahniuk's testament to the counter culture of yuppiedom a world in which sualor and presentability upward mobility and civil disobedience live side by side and take each other's measure daily Palahniuk asks pointed uestions about the world we live in and his prose is the strength of this novel he keeps you interested even when you realize how much you hate what he's sayingAnd you should hate what Palahniuk is saying Because at the heart of the novel sits a troubled foundation It's not the acts of juvenile for the most part sociopathy or even the ultimate real pathology the characters fall into What you should hate as or after you read is the book's central three part idea that a the disaffected youth of the video game generation really do hold the truth about society ; b society in turn is nothing but a reflection of the video game generation's disaffected world view ; and c once a disaffected youth of the video game generation always a disaffected youth of the video game generation there is no improvement there is no connection there is no healing there is no out because boys never grow up Even the support group conceit that could represent the narrator's redemptive attempt at relation turns out to be just a device as egotistical for the character as it is ultimately for the storyline Relation between people doesn't exist not really you don't talk about fight club We're all just wandering bruised through the wasted LCD landscape staking out our independence like rebel teenagers promising to blow up whatever we disagree withPalahniuk has said he wrote this book as a kind of provocation to get back at a publisher for turning down his earlier manuscript I wonder if he peed in the publisher's soup too it wouldn't altogether surprise me

    “You are not special You're not a beautiful and uniue snowflake You're the same decaying organic matter as everything else We're all part of the same compost heap We're all singing all dancing crap of the world” Fight Club is absolutely tragic in its reflection of the real world I get angry when I read it and annoyed at a world that could cause such a situation This may be fiction but it’s full of truth The modern world is unfulfilling and depressing People spend their lives working in call centres or sat behind desks slowly getting miserable until they become depressed and want to kill themselves The modern world drives people crazy with its insufferable and suffocating ways It’s a concrete jungle and not all of us can find happiness amongst the endless grey days of mundanity And in a way Fight Club is a reaction against that Fighting bare knuckle in the streets is a way of feeling alive in a dead and detached world It might be painful but it is something It’s a feeling no matter how bad it may be It’s better than the nothingness that faces these men as they wonder amongst the stones and lights of an insomnia driven emptiness because it is a feeling a reminder that they are in fact alive If you’ve ever worked a dead end nine to five job then you may be able to relate It can be soul destroying “I let go Lost in oblivion Dark and silent and complete I found freedom Losing all hope was freedom” This is not a happy book It possesses no bright spark and like American Psycho it left me feeling thoroughly defeated after reading and that’s because there is so much truth in these pages Hard truths Gut wrenchingly agonising truths Truths that might make you uestion your own existence because they are just so cynical in their viewpoint It’s all a bit of a mind fuck And if we’re to talk about the power of words about how words can affect you and make you perceive something new then these words certainly are powerful in their terriblenessYou should go read them If you dare

    I believe in love at first sight and I’m talking about books A few pages into The Dispossessed by Ursula K LeGuin and I knew that this was the book I had been looking for my whole life The same for Robert A Heinlein’s brilliant The Moon Is a Harsh Mistress These books are speaking to me the author and I are sharing a conversation and I am hearing what I want to hear but the writer through the osmosis of shared visions is saying for me what I want to say I had nebulous thoughts and that writer succinctly stated set down in black and white what for me was pre language thought onlyChuck Palahniuk’s Fight Club is another and Palahniuk speaks for a generation; he boils down and dilutes what we all want to say but felt only The primal fears and drives that we know deep down but before this book could give no voice; Palahniuk has found a pigment to paint on our collective cave wall What Palahniuk illustrates in words is Edvard Munch’s The Scream amplified and multiplied by ten million “I am Joe’s fear of death” He is talking about repressed anger spread out over an actuarial table of life expectancy Stripped down to fighting weight and stepping into the ring with borrowed gloves this book is a gritty explanation of the dark side of Generation X men “What you see at Fight Club is a generation of men raised by women” This uote is the hard nucleus around which the novel forms growing fruitlike around a solid core The next great definitive uote is “The first rule about Fight Club is that you don’t talk about fight Club” This is a charismatic catch phrase to be sure but it is than this Palahniuk goes to great length albeit subtle to reveal that much of what is felt and experienced in Fight Club is either beyond or beneath language inexpressible Palahniuk is grasping at deep roots One of the foundations of feminist thought is communication the need for women to relate to one another and to talk about feelings Men are encouraged to express themselves as well and Palahniuk takes time the same as Hemingway in The Sun Also Rises to draw a misdirected connection to the narrator’s affinity for self help groups and his need to cry I can hear the echoes of Jake Barnes crying by himself and of Romero’s desperate but heroic fist fighting accomplishments Palahniuk resurrects the strong uiet type and raises him dead from the grave in a post modern zombie like caricature; Fight Club’s protagonists are still “30 year old boys” trying to be what they were never raised to be I cannot help but compare this book with Bernard Malamud’s The Natural I saw both film before reading the book and both film adaptations have significant variances from the original literature Fight Club was brilliant and disturbing all at the same time

    I wondered whether this book would seem self absorbed and shallow in our post 911 world but instead I found it prophetic Throughout the materialism and political correctness of the 1990'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 Well with 911 and the Ira war we sure got it So are all you boys satisfied now? Sure this book has its flaws The rhetorical use of repetition although effective at first eventually becomes little than a stylistic tic Also for such a hard edged book it gets surprisingly and disappointingly sentimental at the endStill Fight Club is wickedly funny memorably aphoristic and prophetic And it holds up well after fifteen years

    Dear Chuck I have tried to like you Really I honestly have I tried to read Rant I tried to read Choke and then I attempted this book Rare is the moment where I realize I enjoyed the movie much MUCH then then the novel it is based on I simply do not like your style of writing and I have been ridiculed by fanboys who will defend your honor to the grave Your style comes off as uniue but I can feel the pretentiousness like a piece of meat stuck in between my teeth You know full well that a vast majority of your audience shops at Hot Topic and you lead them by the fishnets to your thin plot lines monotone voice and the gritty and edgy characters that seem to recycle themselves with your stories You wake up in Miami You wake up in Des Moines You wake up in Botswanastraitlaced man meets crazy man life changes Rinse RepeatI have been told that I do not get you That I do not understand the basics of a male love story a male writer who understands the male psyche and who can convey what it really feels like to be a male Perhaps this is the core of my issue being a hapless female who fails at trends Either way I have friends that adore you and for that reason only I will not completely denounce you on the internets Keep appealing to your trendy fan base and keep raking in the dough Maybe someday I will swallow my pride and appeal to the masses just like you And James PattersonBest wishesSarah

    This is satirical cynical Darkly intense A mind fkWhat person in their right mind goes to support groups for cancer patients in order to get perspective on their own life and cure their insomnia? That's what kind of story this is This is how it begins An Obsession with death Then the fight club is born Blue collar to white collar There are 6 rules in the fight club First rule you don't talk about the fight club Second rule you don't talk about the fight club Third rule two men per fight Fourth rule one fight at a time Fifth rule no shoes no shirts in the fight club The sixth rule the fight goes on as long as they have to This is their way of turning down the volume in the real world These guys are on a mission to self destruct although they would describe it as enlightenment A subculture of violence trying to correct all the wrongs in the world with the most primitive emotion and passion that exists hate What a trip Palahniuk takes the reader on What one may interpret as a mind blowing head shaking wtf is going on let the fights begin Another may interpret it as a state of mental illness and the effects of it not being treated A fascinating analysis of the human psycheEnough said 45⭐️

    Bulgarian review belowРевюто на български е по долу Since I began marching in step with the people who try to earn their daily bread and fruits and vegetables too I take the subject of the forsaken rank and file employee in a crappy office to heart and it’s a sticky subject to me Is there anyone who haven’t made the discovery that nothing makes you go off your wits as surely as a job that suffocates you? We all dwell in the miniature boxes of our lives and offices so we can successfully sueeze in the petty hole which our dear consumerist society has left for us Yes that’s right – in order to buy stuff we don’t need with money we don’t have to impress people we don’t likeToo many human beings live their lives as in a dream They eat speak and do whatever they do with the sluggish mechanical movements which suggest a lack of a significant thought process Same shit different day some would say We are all Pavlov’s dogs and we just wait for the respective cues to do the next thing for the day ‘This is how it is with insomnia Everything is so far away a copy of a copy of a copy The insomnia distance of everything you can't touch anything and nothing can touch you’Chuck Palahniuk constructs surrealistic metaphors His sarcasm’s whip stings you harshly and it smarts Is this who I am?

А всички обитаваме малките кутийки на живота и офиса си за да можем успешно да се натъпчем в дребната ниша която ни е оставило милото ни консуматорско общество Да точно така – за да си купим неща които не ни трябват с пари които нямаме така че да можем да впечатлим хора които не харесвамеТвърде много човешки същества живеят живота си като насън Хранят се говорят правят каквото правят с онези лениви механични движения които подсказват липса на протичащ по съществен мисловен процес Same shit different day биха казали някои Всички сме кучета на Павлов и просто чакаме съответните сигнали за да извършим следващото действие за деня ‘This is how it is with insomnia Everything is so far away a copy of a copy of a copy The insomnia distance of everything you can't touch anything and nothing can touch you’Чък Паланюк гради сюрреалистични метафори Камшикът на сарказма му рязко те парва и ти засмъдява И аз ли съм това?
