Dead. I'm never going to finish this. I got halfway through, and I don't really want to force myself to go further. I'm tired of feeling about how 'phony' these people are, I'm tired of hearing about ... Read full review

Palahniuk does another stunningly good job, with a story that knocks the air out of you. His descriptions are breathtakingly graphic, but his storytelling is great, and his pacing is also excellent. I ... Read full review

Seriously could not get enough of the movie. But, reading the book, I have NO idea how they were able to make a movie from this. It's wandering, disjointed, and self-absorbed as a book. I wish I had quit instead of wasting precious reading time finishing this one. Read full review

There was no denying the pull to this story for me. Because I've seen the movie, I knew pretty much what was going to happen, but it's just such a train wreck that I couldn't possibly look away. Sad when you think of it in the mental illness light, but amazing piece of writing for sure. 4 stars Read full review

Loved the movie, and was a bit disappointed with the book because I was expecting something more. It is very close to the movie, up until the last part. The ending almost made me give 5 stars. Read full review

First rule of Fight Club, don't talk about fight club. Makes it kind of hard to write a review about that which you are not supposed to talk about. It is a fine story about one mans mental issues that causes him to go to various support groups to be able to go to sleep. Read full review

I liked this book a lot. Quite a lot. I think I'd like to read it again after I think about it some more. Read full review
