Fight Club

Front Cover
Vintage, 2010 - Adventure stories - 218 pages
4 Reviews
Every weekend, in basements and parking lots across the country, young men with good white-collar jobs and absent fathers take off their shoes and shirts and fight each other barehanded for as long as they have to. Then they go back to those jobs with blackened eyes and loosened teeth and the sense that they can handle anything. Fight Club is the invention of Tyler Durden, projectionist, waiter and dark, anarchic genius. And it's only the beginning of his plans for revenge on a world where cancer support groups have the corner on human warmth.

Felt way more pretentious than the film, which I loved. I dunno, it's probably not aimed at me, but I didn't feel like I got anything out of this that I didn't get out of watching the film. Read full review

Made it a little over halfway. Couldn't take it anymore. It occurred to me later that I should try reading instead of listening, so I might do that in the future. Read full review
