A review of the novel the fight club by chuck palahniuk

It felt like I missed out on a lot of things.

Although the story seems rather unsophisticated, it is anything but. Nothing gets in the way of the vivid story. I highly recommend this book if, for no other reason, than to see an author write in an unconventional manner and prove highly successful.

At first he is content to stage fights, sabotage the meals and movies at work, and inflict chemical burns on the people he loves.

fight club book summary

But I do recognize that, behind the exaggerations of fiction, resides a certain true-to-life quality in the personalities depicted here.

The author portrays duality of human existence via the characters and society so as to present the intertwined relationship between violence and peace. Most people would have thought a book called Fight Club would be the last on my list of books to read.

Indeed, this literary work has affective appeal and quintessence of portrayal since Chuck Palahniuk shows how violence can truly be liberating as an experience. Man, I could go on with a lot of metaphors and comparisons, but this book just brings out that side of me so naturally.

Chuck palahniuk goodreads

There is energy. What starts as a rebellion of the down-and-out turns into a pastime of the up-and- coming. Chuck Palahniuk is a genius, hands down! Have I slept at all? His characters are not the usual ones, he always thinks outside the box, always goes against the norm, always a step ahead. Fight Club is worth preserving for its aphorisms alone. Marla moves into the apartment with the two men. The literary work is truly an exploration of human identity. Along with instructions for executing such quirky acts of urban terrorism, Fight Club offers diabolically sharp and funny writing. But eventually, through an act of self-effacement, he finds, if not peace, at least a refuge.
