Fight Club: A Novel

Some readers call him "Joe", because of his constant use of the name in such statements as, "I am Joe's boiling point". The quotes, "I am Joe's [blank]", refer to the Narrator's reading old Reader's Digest articles in which human organs write about themselves in the first person, with titles such as "I Am Joe's Liver".

The film adaptation replaces "Joe" with "Jack", inspiring some fans to call the Narrator "Jack". In the novel and film, the Narrator uses various aliases in the support groups.

His subconscious is in need of a sense of freedom, he inevitably feels trapped within his own body, and when introduced to Tyler Durden, he begins to see all of the qualities he lacks in himself: "I love everything about Tyler Durden, his courage, his smarts, and his nerve.

Tyler is funny and forceful and independent, and men look up to him and expect him to change their world. Tyler is capable and free, and I am not. He also steals left-over drained human fat from liposuction clinics to supplement his income through soap making and to create the ingredients for bomb manufacturing, which will be put to work later with his fight club.

He is the co-founder of Fight Club, as it was his idea to instigate the fight that led to it. He later launches Project Mayhem, from which he and the members commit various attacks on consumerism.

Tyler is blond, according to the Narrator's comment "in his everything-blond way". The unhinged but magnetic Tyler becomes the " villain " of the novel later in the story. The Narrator refers to Tyler as a free spirit who says, "Let that which does not matter truly slide.

The Narrator no longer receives the same release from the groups when he realizes Marla is faking her problems just as he is. After he leaves the groups, he meets her again when she becomes Tyler's lover.

Marla is shown to be extremely unkempt, uncaring, and sometimes even suicidal. At times, she shows a softer, more caring side.

A former bodybuilder , Bob lost his testicles to cancer caused by the steroids he used to bulk up his muscles. He had to undergo testosterone injections, resulting in increased estrogen.

The increased estrogen levels caused him to grow large breasts and to develop a softer voice. Because of his "bitch tits", Bob is the only known member who is allowed to wear a shirt. The Narrator befriends Bob and, after leaving the groups, meets him again in fight club. Bob's death later in the story, while carrying out an assignment for Project Mayhem, causes the Narrator to turn against Tyler because the members of Project Mayhem treat it as a trivial matter instead of a tragedy.

He is very loyal to Project Mayhem, laughing at the vandalism he and a group of "space monkeys" have caused as their crimes appear on the evening news. Angel Face is considered very beautiful, hence his name. The blond-haired beauty suffers a savage beating at the Narrator's hands during a Fight Club session; the Narrator states that he "wanted to destroy something beautiful.

Whereas in the book it is that excessive beating which triggers the foundation of Project Mayhem Fight Club no longer being a sufficient outlet , in the movie the beating seems to be caused primarily by the Narrator's jealousy.

Motifs[ edit ] At two points in the novel, the Narrator claims he wants to "wipe [his] ass with the Mona Lisa "; a mechanic who joins fight club repeats this to him in one scene. Additionally, he mentions at one point that "Nothing is static. Even the Mona Lisa is falling apart.

And if you never know your father, if your father bails out or dies or is never at home, what do you believe about God? How Tyler saw it was that getting God's attention for being bad was better than getting no attention at all.

Maybe because God's hate is better than His indifference. If you could be either God's worst enemy or nothing, which would you choose? We are God's middle children, according to Tyler Durden, with no special place in history and no special attention.

Unless we get God's attention, we have no hope of damnation or redemption. Which is worse, hell or nothing? Only if we're caught and punished can we be saved. This way at least, God would know our names. After seeing Reader's Digest articles written from the perspective of the organs of a man named Joe, the Narrator begins using similar quotations to describe his feelings.

He often replaces organs with feelings and things involved in his life such as "I am Joe's smirking revenge". Cornflower blue is a color associated with the Narrator's boss; it is revealed that he chose that particular shade of blue to highlight an icon.

All of Palahniuk's subsequent novels have featured references to cornflower blue. Isolationism , specifically directed towards material items and possessions, is a common theme throughout the novel. Tyler acts as the major catalyst behind the destruction of our vanities, which he claims is the path to finding our inner selves. Louis, argues that the Narrator's opposition to emasculation is a form of projection, and the problem that he fights is himself. Definitely a book that I would recommend, the author's writing style is perfect for the plot line and the meaning of the book is so much deeper when analyzed closely.

It used to be one of my favourites. It's absurd and violent and funny at the same time. Characters have a lot of personality, which is a very important thing for me.

Although I overall very enjoyed this book, the second half or last third of it became weird and bit less entertaining I don't know why. But it's still a very good read and I would recommend it! It's a classic.

Palahniuk's writing is raw and unapologetic. The storyline does get dark once you get to the main plot twist, so if you don't like books that leave you shaken up, move on. A bit choppy but I think that's the point. Different ending than the movie I prefer the book ending YET I actually prefer the movie to the book. Still, I'd recommend to those that some angst and anger. What a story!!!

You never would have guessed the ending! So much to analyze in this book as its sooooo deep! About loyalty About sanity!!!

Date published: Rated 5 out of 5 by Marianni from A Good Read I wanted to read the book before watching the movie since I heard the story was pretty good. I love Palahniuk's novels but it's usually a hit or miss for me. This one was outstanding, not my favourite but still kept me reading until the end. Date published: Rated 5 out of 5 by Phoebe from I'm going to break the first rule of Fight Club I love Palahniuk's books, and this is no exception.

Highly recommend.Characters have a lot of personality, which is a very important thing for me.
