So I broke my own rule and watched the movie before reading the book... I was surprised by all the similarities, but more shocked by the ending. Both are visceral and unsettling to the very end.

Jeralyn One of my all time favorites! 4mo

Repost for @BarbaraBB :
Thank you all for participating in #90sSpringFling. It was so much fun to see how we all over the world lived our lives through the 90s, listened to the same music and dressed the same way.
The Fight Club buddy read has really taken the book to new level. @Cinfhen thank you for organizing. I hope you had a great wedding party. 💕

Next will be a #BelowZer00s buddy read (& party 🎉🎈), Jan 10-12. Details will follow! 😘❤️

kspenmoll Veronica. Love to join in! 6mo

I saw the movie ages ago so I don‘t remember the details. Definitely going to rewatch now. Because this book was totally crazy. I‘m not sure I really liked it but I did keep reading to the end. I‘ve read some weird stuff but this might be the weirdest...

#90sSpringFling @Cinfhen @BarbaraBB
Although I didn't participate in the buddy read (contrary to general consensus of the book, I like it.. not genius, but an interesting debut imho) as a 90s teen, I had a blast looking through everyone's posts. So, I have created a Spotify playlist of my favorite 25 songs from the 90s. Enjoy! Flannel is optional, angst is mandatory!
https://open.spotify.com/playlist/2QSEItcESGQUmXsJTIIQNX

britt_brooke Nice playlist! 🤘🏻 I‘m one of the few who liked Fight Club. 5⭐️ 7mo
vivastory @britt_brooke Thanks! 🎸🤘It's strange because I actually like the movie as much as the book, which never happens. 7mo
britt_brooke @vivastory I‘ve heard that some people even like the movie better. I haven‘t seen it since it was new, and completely brained dumped it, so we‘re planning to watch it again soon. 7mo

mcipher I loved Fight Club - book and movie - and this playlist looks awesome (I was totally listening to Moby‘s Play 10 minutes ago!!) 7mo
vivastory @Pruzy It came out almost 24 years ago. And I remember it vividly. 7mo
vivastory @mcipher Thanks! I forgot what a brilliant idea it is, how big of a deal it was when it was released. I saw him & The Violent Femmes play a concert the year after Play was released. It was pretty remarkable. 7mo

vivastory @cobwebmoth Thanks! Palahniuk is hit and miss with me, but Fight Club definitely worked for me. 7mo

Reggie I love the Moby album. Used to fall asleep to Inside on repeat all the time. Did you know he got sued over one of the songs because someone figured out he ripped someone else‘s song off, inverted the notes, and played it backwards. Crazy, right? 7mo

This, to me, is a crucial takeaway. Today, in real life, there's no Project Mayhem as such, but the angry people referred to here exist. They vote for Trump and Brexit, they become school shooters or stab people in the street, or they run off to join Daesh. The discontent of the disenfranchised and disillusioned is real and destructive.

It makes me sad to say, but I bailed. I got to page 50 and just didn‘t care. Which is crazy to me because his holy trinity for me is Choke, Haunted, and Invisible Monsters. I loved those books. And even liked his books Snuff, Runt, and Beautiful You. Maybe it was wrong time, wrong book.

ephemeralwaltz Invisible Monsters was incredible!! I also enjoyed Choke but didn't care for Fight Club either 🤔 7mo
LibrarianJen I keep seeing posts for this book. Is it in any way related to the movie? 7mo
Suzze I adored Invisible Monsters! 7mo

Reggie @LibrarianJen I didn‘t make it through the whole book but yeah, the stuff about him meeting the girl at all the support groups is in there. Short answer, lol, yes. 7mo
Cathythoughts I found the book hard .. but I‘m glad I read it. Desperation & those awful feelings , nihilism... but I also wouldn‘t read any more of his books. It‘s like I need a reminder of the different lives people live .. it was heavy going , weird & disturbing... But true that people do get to such desperate places 7mo
Reggie @ephemeralwaltz @Suzze It was a Sunday morning, and I was eating at this bakery in Las Cruces when I read the part where you find out she blew her own face off. A piece of French toast almost fell out of my mouth. Lol 7mo
LibrarianJen Ok good to know! I only sort of like the movie. I‘ll skip the book. 7mo
ephemeralwaltz @Reggie Talk about plot twists! 7mo
Leftcoastzen Put it on the list of books not to read while brunching!😂 7mo
Reggie @Leftcoastzen Lol, just to be clear, I wasn‘t grossed out. I was more shocked at the audacity of this character. I had to mentally remember to close my mouth. 😮 7mo
Reagan-reads I‘ve been a big fan of many of his books but I have tried reading Choke multiple times and I can‘t do it. Diary though 👌🏻👌🏻 6mo

Fight Club is raw and grotesque and scattered and haunting. Is it wrong to say I liked it? I‘ve seen parts of the movie over the years, so had an idea what to expect. At its core, this book spoke of damaged and troubled people, whether through illness or through society. If you get really deep, it could be a look at society as a whole.

Thanks for getting me to read this, @Cinfhen ! Looking forward to the discussion, @BarbaraBB ! #90sSpringFling

BarbaraBB You read it fast! Great review, great cover! 7mo

The movie was better than the book for me! Either Palahniuk's writting style is 1 that translates best to me visually on screen rather than the page. Or perhaps I've seen the movie so many times I was bored & easily distracted while reading it but that could have been cause I knew what was coming next. #90sSpringFling w/90's 🎶 theme Billy Idol had to be in📸

Cinfhen I agree, this book worked way better for me as a film. I HATED the book but I‘m digging Billy 7mo

As ridiculous as I find the idea of people wanting to knock the crap out of each other for fun 🤦🏼‍♀️ I did enjoy this book. Palahnjuk's writing is very action packed with I really enjoyed. There was a major spoiler which even if I hadn't seen the movie first, I think I would have still figured out. I'm looking forward to our discussion. #90sSpringFling

(Pre selfie days) this is the only 90‘s photo I could find of me. The nice thing is - you can see the heinous way I dressed my daughters! 🤦🏼‍♀️ and some of my relatives really rocked the 90‘s look! 🤩

Yeah, no, not for me 🙅‍♀️ I‘m not that squeamish but this was too much, too violent, too graphic, trying too hard. The writing style annoyed me and kept me from immersing myself in the story. The story itself is interesting, but not enough to really make me care.

I‘m excited for the discussion and the #90sSpringFling party, though! 🙌

Also, definitely work for take a #WalkontheWildSide #MarchIntothe70s

Such a change of pace from Milkman, I flew through this one. It's strange and disturbing and I can't decide how literally I should take it. How much was real and how much hallucination? I can't say I liked it, but it was a bit like people say about a car crash - hard to look away from. Looking forward to the party @Cinfhen 😘 #90sSpringFling

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I found this book strangely brilliant and disturbing - thought provoking “ We are the middle earth of history taught by Television “ we live in a time of “ spiritual depression “
“ You were fighting everything you hated in your life “ ... and you just had
“A near life experience “

I don‘t know if I can even process this for awhile ... but I know it was a memorable experience 👍🏻

fandom_hellspawn99 @Cinfhen I mean, I honestly thought it was an awesome movie. It really comes down to preference on if you like reading the book first. I've always been too impatient and watch the movie first then go back and read. That's my opinion though 😂😂😂 8mo
Cinfhen Sometimes I think having the film as a “reference” helps with my reading😁 8mo
fandom_hellspawn99 @Cinfhen that's me in a nutshell 🤗 8mo

It‘s a good one. I haven‘t seen the movie in forever, so I can‘t say whether or not it follows the book well. Another quick read, being only slightly over 200 pages. It‘s the first book I‘ve read by this author. I‘m going to read another one of his soon.

But first, back to the Pendergast series!

Cathythoughts I thought it a good one too 👍🏻 What is the Prendergast series ? (edited) 7mo
LiterarySloth @Cathythoughts it‘s a series of books by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child. The first one is Relic. I‘ve read the first three so far. 7mo
Cathythoughts @LiterarySloth thanks ! I must check them out 7mo

As I sit here about to continue reading Fight Club, I think about how much I want to add all the books I can remember reading in school. I don‘t remember too much about them, but I liked most of them. Sarah Plain and Tall, The Bean Trees, Nothing but the Truth. I can‘t remember all the books!

Watched the movie again and I think I prefer the book. Much funnier and not so dogmatic. On the other hand my Airedale terrier (pictured watching something else) now has a new favourite movie. Watching her watch Fight Club was priceless; sadly my phone was upstairs, so couldn't take any photos!

Much of what I loved about Fight Club was the technical brilliance of the writing. The satire and the black humour. In the afterword Palahniuk also wrote that the story he wanted to tell is fundamentally the same as in The Great Gatsby: a love story with two guys, one girl. A definite recommend.

I am really enjoying this book. It is also surprisingly funny, if you like dark humour. Was the film this funny? I can't remember, it's been too long.

SaraBeagle Great book, but one of the few that was bested by its movie! 13mo
zsuzsanna_reads @SaraBeagle It's been a long time since I've seen the movie. I'm planning to rewatch it over the weekend. 13mo

I feel the true powerhouse of writing is whoever made the screenplay.... amazing concept which I‘m overfamiliar with now but maybe the movie was better??? Chuck is still my idol.
