½ Read ã Fight Club by Chuck Palahniuk ã 1st rule about Fight Club is read the novel first Well thats my rule, i watched the movie, when it came out years ago most the population and only now discovered the real Fight Club.

On a flight he befriended a key character of the story, Durden a soap salesman, they arrange to meet at a bar and the rest is history as they say They set up a Fight Club the rules are.
You don t talk about Fight Club I wondered whether this book would seem self absorbed and shallow in our post 9 11 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 9 11 and the Iraq 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 end.
Still Fight Club is wickedly funny, memorably aphoristic and prophetic And it holds up well after fifteen years.

, not silly.
The 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 Let
