From the Inside Flap
Ten years after starting Project Mayhem, our unnamed hero lives a mundane life. A kid, a wife. Pills to keep his destiny at bay. But it won't last long, the wife has seen to that. He's back where he started, but this go-round he's got more at stake than his own life. The time has arrived: 'Rize or Die'...

The first rule of Fight Club might be not to talk about it, but FIGHT CLUB 2 is generating international headlines and will introduce a new generation of readers to Project Mayhem.

Many people will know of "Fight Club" because of the film with Ed Norton and Brad Pitt. The movie does an excellent job of capturing the story and much of the dialogue is taken from this book. In written form though you get further insight into the mind of the unnamed narrator and his views on the world.
As a novel "Fight Club" explores a number of themes as its narrator struggles to regain his sense of identity in the modern world. There are a number of scenes of fairly shocking violence and criminality as the novel tries to break away from societal norms. As such the movie has attracted some mindless fans of anarchistic behaviour but reading the novel you see that while not encouraging such behaviour in the context of the novel it seems entirely justified.
This is a really important novel for the 21st Century as the media around us continues to tell us who we are and how we should behave. "Fight Club" is not telling people to copy its standards of behaviour but it is saying that people should think for themselves and re-evaluate what is important in life.
I am Jack's profound sense of unease.
However, this was not the case, I loved the book as much as the film, which did this text justice. It's exquisitely written, very cleverly crafted and achieves exactly what it was meant to do - which Palahnuik describes in an extra piece at the end.
If you've seen the film before reading this then you will probably find Edward Norton's voice playing in your head as you read it lol.
If you've not watched the film yet, read this first - you will probably enjoy building your own image rather than having the actors imposed on the characters.
Overall a brilliant piece that lives up to it's reputation.
The answer is "yes". However, you will hear the voices of Norton, Pitt and Bonham-Carter so clearly, because clearly Fincher took the book, expanded on it in very visual and inventive ways, but kept to the narrative (and indeed the spoken lines, extremely faithfully.
Having said that the book does add to the story by adding depth in the way only books can i.e. by stimulating our imagination.
I would highly recommend this to anyone who enjoyed the film - it's a quick read anyway, only around 200 pages. I wonder how fertile Fincher's imagination is to have created so densely imaginative a film.
Even the afterword, which describes how the book was conceived, initially as a short story, is well worth a read - consider it a DVD extra. It shows how an initial unenthusiam grew to a global obsession and ends with the following very perceptive line, which I will paraphrase as I don't have the book in front of me: "Sometimes you don't have to be rich - sometimes being tired is enough."
If you have seen the movie - the book is better. If you have not seen the movie - the book is better ! Much prefer the way the story reads over the movie, the ending is so real (or unreal ?) you feel you are right in amongst it all. A modern classic, but not Palahniuk's best, in my opinion Survivor is a better story and Choke is creapier !
