Publisher's Summary

A true modern classic, Fight Club is a darkly comic tale of love, rivalry and the lengths men will go to when they need something to make them feel alive.
Every weekend, in basements and car parks across the country, young men with good white-collar jobs and absent fathers take off their shoes and shirts and fight each other barehanded. 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 the world....

Read the book

While the narration of Jim Colby is fine, it fails to reach the same heights as Edward Norton's narration in the film adaptation (of which I am a huge fan). I do realize that this is an unfair comparison but the damage is done - by watching the film - and the audio-book suffers for it, even though the text is excellent and Jim Colby narration is good.

I would recommend reading the book instead of listening to it.

The first rule of Fight Club...

I imagine a lot of people who listen to this novel have seen the film first. I did. For me the joy here was unpicking the twist of the narrative - which I won't spoil here - but seems even cleverer in written form. The film is very faithful to the text, but I appreciated having details and episodes fleshed out further. It certainly packs a punch.
